Tamiya Martini Racing 935 Porsche – 1977

21032603116_2d252a81b8_o

High-quality 1:12 scale Tamiya model. Photographed with a Canon F-1 with Canon FD 24mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Kodachrome. Assembled and photographed at my home in Honmoku, Yokohama in 1979.

Tamiya models were always the best! The only thing I left off was the red air dam stripe and I swapped the Martini decal for a Porsche decal above the grill.

These kits unassembled and still new in the box go for around $350 to $450 USD.

Near Motomachi, Yokohama – 1979

Interesting street scene captured these young ladies interacting with the always helpful police. Taken near the prestigious Motomachi shopping street in central Yokohama. Canon F-1 with Canon FD 80-200mm lens on Kodachrome 64 film. It’s really hard to believe that this is now 40-years ago.
