In this blog review I will be reviewing the the new 1/24 NuNu Porsche 935 K3 “1979 Le Mans winner” This review will cover all the initial box opening basics. This review will be totally honest and I’ll go into great detail about the basics of fitting up the bodywork and important things to lookout for. This is not going to be the usual kit review worrying about flashing around the parts. This kit review will be of great value to you.

Un-boxing the K3
First off I was very excited about this new Porsche 935 K3 kit. There is so many possibilities with this K3. All the parts look great, very minimal flashing. The same great chassis mold from the K2 is used in this K3 kit, which is great, because it worked great in the K2 kit and the fit was awesome! There is also some other molds that were used in this kit that was used with the K2, like the rear wing/engine cover, fenders, twin turbos, and glass parts. I dont mind having extra parts as they could possibility be used in scratch building projects. The shape of the body looks good. I’ve studied this car for many hours now, and I think majority of people will agree. Its important to be careful when comparing a model to photographs as different types of lenses will produce a wider than normal picture and if you are comparing and sizing up a picture to the model kit, you might find yourself comparing your model to a picture that is slightly off
First things to look out for before you start
I recommend leaving the rear fender spruces on until you are done gluing on the entire fender assembly as not doing this will make your fit very complicated as the entire rear section will bend around without the spruce holding into place. But it is nice that the kit manufacture put such big heavy duty spruces holding up the roof and all the fragile parts in place because there has been so many car models get slightly bent or crushed because of not the proper reinforcements.
Before test fitting grind the edge of this spruce down with a Dremel. The fender wont fit unless you grind it down enough for it to fit.
