I wasn't sure whether this belongs in the Racers theme or in Model Team, but hey, whatever.
The Porsche 935 was a development of the famous Porsche 911. Over the years Porsche developed more powerful versions with much improved aerodynamics, but they were reluctant to sell them to customers. Instead different companies started developing their own versions. One of these was Kremer racing from Cologne in Germany. The 935 K3 was their third version.
The roof of the model is based on that of my older Porsche 911 model. That is 10 studs wide. The race version is obviously wider: 11 studs wide at the front and 12 at the rear. Phat
Like the Porsche 911, the 935 was powered by a rear-mounted 6-cylinder boxer engine. Using two turbo-chargers and a host of other modifications the race versions produced as much as 740-800 BHP!
Being a race-car it doesn't have much of an interior, but I spent some time on adding bits of a roll-cage, the gear change mechanism and a bucket seat.
The sponsor names and logos are very important for the look of most racecars, so I spent a lot of time making them look good. There are more than 40 individual stickers on the model!
