Tamiya models are superb!

This manufacturer makes precision models that are perfectly molded with clear instructions. The parts fit and are all there. Only Revell kits come close. AMT kits are garbage in comparison.

Tamiya Porsche Carrera GT

I enjoyed building the model very much. The attention to detail by Tamiya is great. I've built two other Porsche models, the 959 and the 986 Boxster and was equally impressed with the quality and detail.

Description

Porsche”s Flagship Super Sports Car In 1/24 Scale

The Porsche Carrera GT grabbed the world”s attention when first unveiled as a concept car at the 2000 Paris Auto Show. Promoted as Porsche”s next generation flagship super sports car, the Carrera GT was officially unleashed onto the international motoring market in 2003. Incorporating the latest and most extreme racing technology, the Carrera GT lines up against the impressive range of super sports cars offered by the worlds top makers, such as the Enzo Ferrari and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Featuring a powerful 5.7 liter V10 engine, carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and push-rod suspension all wrapped up in classic Porsche style and elegance, the Carrera GT is the ultimate high-end sports car.

The Carrera GT features superb interior detailing, with even the door interior being assembled from 3 separate pieces. Pieces for the dashboard have also been divided by finishing color, allowing for easy painting without the need for fidgety masking. Even hidden elements come as intricately detailed pieces, such as the brake pedals and side brake between the drivers seat and door.

The racing inspired V10 power plant which replaces Porsche”s traditional horizontal 6-cylinder engine has been reproduced in meticulous detail and accuracy. All other distinctive aspects of the drive train have been carefully replicated down to an exquisite 1/24 scale including the horizontal transmission, air intake, exhaust system and push rod type rear suspension.

Features:

  • 1/24 scale plastic model
  • Overall length: 193mm, Overall width: 83mm, Overall height: 49mm
  • Rear hood can be opened and closed allowing display of engine and mechanics even after completion.
  • Monocoque chassis and front and rear suspension accurately reproduced.
  • Metal plated parts include wheels and exhaust pipe.
  • Rear spoiler can be assembled in opened or closed position.
  • Display quality further enhanced by metal transfers used for mirrors and Porsche emblem.

The overall shape and body design has been so accurately reproduced that looking at each curve and groove you can”t help but feel you”re looking at the real thing. In order to accurately reproduce the curve of the mesh engine cover, clear plastic with mesh design decals has been used. Roof panels also come as separate pieces, allowing you to have the choice of an open-top or hardtop model.

A certain amount of kits were packaged with the wrong length axle shaft. If your kit came with a 2×71 MM shaft, please replace it with a 2×67 mm shaft. The correct shaft may be obtained free of charge by calling our customer service center at 1-800-826-4922
