L/F: Porsche 956/962 wheel decals

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am going to be building in 1/24th, the Brun "Memorex" Porsche 962C as raced at the 1986 Norisring 250 and Fuji rounds of the WSPC. As you can see in the attached photo, it has the front wheel covers but with the BBS gold spokes painted on the black disc. Might anyone know of where I can get decals for this?

 

I'll be using Tamiya #24233 "Shell" Porsche 962C, this kit has the discs molded onto the front wheels and the 6-spoke wheel for the rear (I'll add the rear disc from my spares box). I checked my 956 (kit # 247A), it has the actual BBS spoked front wheel. In Tamiya's "Canon" 956 (kit # 24232) it has those decals but I really don't want to raid a virgin kit.

 

I think I remember a decals sheet that has the gold spokes over black disc, but don't remember who it was; might you? Or might you have the "Canon" sheet in your spares box and would be willing to get rid of the gold on black decals, which are decal #33.

 

Thanks,

 

Tim

I dont see too many S27 sets with the wheel decals.

 

You might be able to ask Steve at https://www.hiroboy.com which set might work.

Thanks Eric, I just plan on "stealing" the wheel decls from my Tamiya Canon 956 then using thar 956 as something else (I already have a built-up Canon 956 in my display case - the old Protar kit).

If you are interested, I also have some spare PE bits for the 956 from Scale Motorsport.... i think many would work on the 962.
