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?

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

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.

Hi, guys!

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

Cheers!

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

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

I think they are easy finds though.

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'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.

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.

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

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

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"

For a campaign name: why not be ambitious and call it:

Porsche Number 1

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

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😉

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.

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!

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. ?
