I've been working on this IMSA resin conversion kit for the Hasegawa Group C World Sportscar kits.
It's going to come with the following:
-IMSA ground effect tunnels -high induction scoop (The basic version) -NACA Duct for the roof -Resin tires -BBS wheels -Side exhaust block off plates
Hasegawa has reissued their 962C kits recently. I prefer the Hasegawa 962 kits over the Tamiya 962....The Hasegawa is better suited for an IMSA 962.
As you can see the Group C. 962 has a less of aggressive ground effect tunnels.
The IMSA 962 has a more aggressive ground effect tunnels and a rear single exhaust.
Im still trying to chase the shape of the high induction scoop....there was SO many different shapes of these that I'm basically trying to get something reasonably close and can be slightly adjusted by the builder. I'm still trying to understand the detailed shape and any good pictures would be greatly appreciated
I'm still adjusting the resin conversion to this kit. I have another kit coming so I can use to make detailed instructions with and build up from a normal building routine
Thanks! My goal is to make the IMSA Porsche 962 market easier for builders. I love IMSA GTP and it's almost impossible to find or build anything from the greatest form and era in sportscar racing.
I'm trying to make this a reasonably priced conversion kit, so it's going to be just touching on the MAJOR differences...I could go on, and on, and on with changes, and before you know it, Id have a full-blown resin kit, and I DONT want to do that....the main goal is to make a cheap resin conversion for the plastic kits, because at the end of the day, people prefer to work with normal plastic and want something in a reasonable price range.
BTW.... IMSA 962 decals will magically appear, eventually.
This is great. I've been wanting to do the IMSA GTP Lowenbrau car for years. Calvin, I agree, that era was really special. Thanks for doing this.
You're welcome, John. It's something I've been wanting to do for years, but with no decal hope, it wasn't a reality. But things have worked out now! Btw, my first build with this conversion kit, will be the Lowënbraü Porsche. I'm a big fan of Al Holbert.
I'm really working at making this kit, very builder friendly and reasonably priced.
I'm going to give you the traditional lame excuses that most people do....I've been busy But I actually have been. I got everything fitted up and I need to make the instructions and it will be on its way.
Hey Calvin...looking forward to seeing this produced. I've been wanting to do a few of the IMSA 962s also. The lowenbrau being one of them also. When this is ready please update us here as I do want a few of those...
Comes with: -IMSA ground effect tunnels -high induction scoop (The basic version) -NACA Duct for the roof -Resin tires -BBS wheels -Side exhaust block off plates -level two side rear air scoops -Aluminium exhaust pipe
