Hasegawa FromA Racing Porsche 962C

Hasegawa FromA Racing Porsche 962C 1/24 completed December 26th, 2019

Pros:

Nice shape, fits together with no problems at all. Good moulding, little cleanup required. Despite being quite old the decals all still transferred without problems. Realistic rubber tyres, nicely detailed wheels.

Cons:

Ultra-curbside. No engine, no gearbox (despite that bits of both should be visible through the rear end), no steerable wheels, not a lot of interior details.

Verdict:

Not bad. There's nothing wrong with it, I just wish there was more of it. I understand the Tamiya 962C is a pain with it's one-piece body and glass moulded together, but in other areas it's better, especially under the bodywork.

Build notes:

Completed in about 5 weeks. Body colour is Tamiya TS-47 chrome yellow. Extra details include a lot in the interior such as removal of passenger seat, added hoses, wires etc. PE radiators, scratch built rough engine, a side-hole opened up for another intake (what I'm not sure - not fuel) and brake discs with calipers. I've intentionally omitted 3 things from the suggested build - the front wheel covers (hate them), the headlight mask decals (not the same yellow and the car looks better without them), and finally the plain white decal sun visor - it looked boring and without it, I can see more of my interior detailing. I see so many variants of the FromA Racing 962C with and without various items, I figure - this is my variant. Colours remind me of a JCB.
