C1 964 and 993 review

Wow its already March, this year has been crazy and it just started. Fortunatly we can start it off with a bit of a bang with an awesome review from Mr Bryson Wong. He was very lucky to aquire both C1 RWB kits( which I wish I bought) and was more than willing to do a great review for us. Thanks a lot Mr Wong!

 

Hello 12-twentyfour! Before I start, I want to thank Raees Amien for inviting me to review the following kits I bought from C1 Models. I hope my review is interesting enough to keep you reading!
I remembered a few years back, I was glancing through a local magazine and came upon a wide-body Porsche 930. It was love at first sight, the black wide fenders and the bronze deep dish Work Meister S1’s. The sinister look just seems to catch my sigh. Since then I’m a big fan of Akira Nakai, founder of RWB (Rauh Welt Begriff) and fell in love with his works.

I got myself 2 kits, both the RWB 964 and 993 which C1 Models were offering. In case if anyone is wondering why I got both, I couldn’t decide on 1 so I burned through my wallet and got both instead, it was a tough decision! Nakai-san was down in Singapore previously to do the very first RWB Porsche, with the help of my friends, I got him to sign the boxes before he left.
Firstly the C1 Models RWB 964 Resin Kit. It comes with a few bags of parts.
Packaging is simple, with labels on the side showing the product name and limited numbers.

Instuction sheet, decals, seat belt material, metal mesh, PE parts and 2 photographs of the “Pandora One”.

The body comes very detailed. Quality of the resin is solid. The only downside is that there’s lot of cleaning much to do, trimming of parts etc.

Clear parts needed some buffing to get them shine.

Last but not least, the body itself. It’s casting seems to be slightly better than the 964 but still minimal holes and touching up to do.

Both kits need Tamiya 911 GT2 variant kits to start working on them. I believe you can still get the C1 Models RWB 993 kit once they start restocking them but the RWB 964 is out of production. You can still get your fix from Hobby Design, the only thing you’ll miss out is the “IDLERS Wheel Stencil”.
Thanks for reading!
