Big D,
I just signed up. Plenty of time to work in another Porsche build as the time frame is just perfect.

Thanks, D. for setting up the campaign! Highly anticipated!

Enlisted!

The rules are crystal clear... I see no need for amends

Hi guys.

Group Build enlistment page is up
HERE so please jump on board.


Please have a look at the Rules and Regs and let me know if you are happy with them, and we need to get a ribbon designed, so start throwing some ideas around.

Cheers, D

Damian,
I just checked the Campaign tab above and there is no Porsche campaign listed. So how do we sign up?

Is the campaign going to start some time in the future rather then post dating it back 7 months to Jan. ?

Michael, I'm not sure how I miss the above post until now

The "bonus of Cartograf decals" will make the difference over those compound curves. I wasn't aware about these "pimped up" Tamiya kits!

And my entry has arrived. A kit that must have been first issued about 40 years ago, this is a re-issue with some small etch and the bonus of Cartograf decals.


Roll on Sept 1.

With Porsche having designed, improved, equipped... a huge amount of vehicles, including Harley Davidson engines I guess we better stick to vehicles with an actual Porsche sign on them😉



Sounds reasonable, and I'm fine with that.

I'll probably build Tamiya's 911 GT1, but is McLaren MP4/2 allowed? It has engine built by Porsche.

OK I think we are there.

Taking Drabslab's original proposal of:

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

We have interest from:

Excellent, I will get started on setting it up. Would you like to throw around some names for the Group Build?

I note that this year marks their 70th Anniversary (1948-2018) so maybe "70 Years of Porsche"

Iconic subject, good time frame, select company! What should I wish more for? My 959 boarded yesterday the ship in Miami.

I'm definitely in

I think they only need 5 participants on Automodeler to kickoff a campaign.
We are probably there with the indicated interest. I don't know who this gets submitted to.

cheers

Michael



Correct, and that would be me

Let me know if you need any help putting the submission together.

Cheers, D

I'm pretty sure I can find another Porsche to build for the campaign. So Count me in.

We need 10 interested members for the campaign to become official. Then they will assign a start date.

Hi, guys!

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

Cheers!
Gabriel



I need a Porsche, my (non-existing) kingdom for a Porsche



I think they are easy finds though.


Quoted Text


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



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!

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

I will be traveling for a few weeks

See you all end of June
