Hi, guys!

Whatever the decision will be, my Tamiya 959 it's on its way. Just ordered yesterday.

Cheers!

I think they are easy finds though.

That's cruel Gabriel
Better find something to join in.

Haha! And you pay cruelty with sadism, I see! The bare truth is that I bought it based on price not on preference. The main piece in that order is Tamiya's Mercedes 300SL Gullwing for which I've been drooling since its release, some three years ago! Now, not to insult anyone with my humble Porsche, can I join the campaign with my Gullwing? Can I? Btw, Ferdinand Porsche was Daimler Benz designer before going on his own. Maybe that's old news for many of you, but I just found out!

Cheers!
Gabriel

I have 5 Porsches race cars in stash, and this would be perfect excuse to build one. So I'm in.

Hoi,
How many sign-ups do you actually need to start a campaign on automodeler?


I will be traveling for a few weeks

See you all end of June

Great idea, lots of subject matter available. I don't have any in the stash, but who knows what might happen over the next 6 months ??

I will keep an eye on progress here and try to spread the word a bit.

Cheers, D

Not a bad idea. But, the closest I have is a Kubelwagon.

Hoi motorheads,

In another forum thread, Cosimodo suggested launching a Porsche campaign.

It would be something like:

A Porsche campaign, any scale, any time, road and racetrack, prototype and mass produced, but no military.

starting 1-09-2018,

finishing 1-09-2019

Already signed up:

Cosimodo,
Drabslab,
Szmann.

If we would get some additional interest then I might just ask the "site powers that be" for initiating that campaign.

what do you think?
