Porscheeeee!!!
Can there be someone who does not know Porsche? In our brains of pure fans of the brand, this idea is inconceivable... Even more, can there be a single scale modeler in the world who does not have a built Porsche model on his shelf? We hope not! :D

Today we want to talk to you about the 1/24 scale Porsche 935 K3 that one of our modeling friends has masterfully assembled. Starting from the Nunu model and with the Coca Cola sponsored decoration by Decalcas... doesn't it look absolutely astonishing? Well, you can enjoy this and many other builds, each one more spectacular than the other, in both Spanish and English on his blog Modelia. Very interesting and instructive content, with detailed pictures and really useful comments. Congratulations and thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience!

Take a look at the blog and remember that at SpotModel you have everything you need to build works of art like this Porsche 935 K3 :D

Decalcas: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Porsche Kremer 935 K3 Bob Akin Motor Racing Team sponsored by Coca Cola #43 - Paul Miller + Craig Siebert + Bob Akin - 12 Hours Sebring, 24 Hours of Daytona, 24 Hours Le Mans, IMSA 1981 - paint masks, water slide decals manufactured with digital technology, assembly instructions and painting instructions - for Nunu references PN24006 and PN24029

Reference: DCL-DEC037

One of the most recognizable and famous versions of the Porsche 935 K3, the one sponsored by Coca Cola that we saw run normally in the American continent, but that also tried its luck in the endurance race par excellence, the 24 hours of Le Mans. This decal sheet allows for up to 3 different versions of the 1981 season, covering perhaps the three most famous endurance races in the world, Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring. A mask is included for the classic wavy band of the Cola Cola logo that goes on the hood, to go over the white color after placing the decal or paint it completely, mainly on the area of the ventilation fins.

Reference: 12-024

Motorcycle lovers are in luck with the models recently launched by Hasegawa, with classics from the 80s, but if we want to nitpick, the decoration that the model brings is that of the Japanese market. What if it turns out that we want to do the one we had or wanted to have in, for example, Europe? Blue Stuff has prepared a complete decal sheet with the livery used on the export models of the Suzuki GSX-R750 , with a slightly different layout of the blue stripes and slightly larger logos. Includes patterns to make the masks to paint the fairing, and complete instructions with a color reference guide.

Although there were few units marketed with the unmistakable racing decoration of Suzuki Great Britain, the Skoal Bandit chewing tobacco, it must be recognized that it is a very striking decoration.
