I just finished up the Porsche 935 Louis Krages, Dieter Schornstein, and Philippe Gurdjian piloted in the 1978 Le Mans 24 Hours. Unfortunately, this car fell out after completing 183 laps, but it was certainly a looker while it ran.
I built this car box stock from the Beemax kit, painted it Tamiya pure white, and used Indycals decals to complete the build. The kit went together well and I had no issues. Thank you for looking!

Jerry: One of these days there is gonna’ be a knock on your door and I will be standing there saying “I have made this pilgrimage to visit the Suddeth Motor Racing Museum.” You crank out awesome models on a regular basis...perhaps we should call you “The Machine 2.0?”... Another beauty! Tim

Thanks to everyone for the kind words, this was a fun build. As I said with my other Beemax 935, this kit was incredibly straightforward.
John, regarding the louvers, my method is to let the decal dry and slit the decal over the louvers with as sharp an X-Acto knife blade as possible. Once I do that, I hit it with Microsol and then let it dry. It is less exacting than I feared!
Calvin-I didn’t know about this car either, but once Michael released the Ricoh set I liked it so much I knew I had to build it!
