Just a few 935s

Post by Stu935 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:23 pm

I've just started collecting 1:43 cars as I want to build a collection of 935s. In the past week I've picked up the below 3 models. I'm really impressed with the amount of detail found on these cars considering thier size. Anyway here's my first 3 cars in my collection.

1. Truescale 935 K3 Coke Le Mans 1981

2. Spark 935 K3 Sachs Le Mans 1980

3. Spark #72 Dick Barbour Racing Le Mans 1979

I'll update this thread as I add more to my collection

thanks for looking

Great start Stu - I've got the same TSM.

Now, what you need to do is an ebay search for "935" & "Martini" - you'll soon have more!

It has taken time, but I have come to really like the 935. The Dick Barbour is my favourite of those three.

I can't have a 935 collection without the iconic Martini livery been part of it. I have the Ebbro Le Mans #40 in transit as I type :D

my #40 Martini 935 arrived this weekend. Took a couple of photo's earlier today.

Again another great detailed car. Details on this Ebbro car aren't quite on the same level as the Spark or Truescale cars. For example where the likes of spark use photo ecthed parts for certain details such as the emergency engine kill switch, the Ebbro model has the switch molded as part of the body so not as well detailed. Still a fantstic car of such an iconic livery

I like the Martini version - I have that one myself.

If your building a collection of 935's, you may be interested to know there is a 1:43 kit of the 935 K3 engine produced by Renaissance. I think this would look good displayed alongside the models and I've just ordered one :

It's funny I was thinking of picking up the Truescale 1:18 935 engine to display with them, but this would be more suited due to the scale

Two Martini 935s viewed in one browsing session this evening. They are really calling out to me.

It wears yellow very well, I like it better than the red HT livery.

Agree with that entirely. It's something different and works superbly.

must admit the yellow and red colour combination makes the car really stand out. I will be adding the red #70 car to the collection, but prefer the colour combination on the yellow.

Kid Box

Spark have made a whole raft of specials for them with the cat number beginning KBS

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.
