My heart is melting, they are all :wub:  
Thanks for sharing!

 


Pleasure Andy, I‘m almost sure I have an interior picture somewhere to. Shall look for it during the weekend … 

The more reference pic's the better JB not just for me but for everyone on the forum 🙂👍. I have a feeling I may be in touch with you as the time for the Carrera build approaches if that's OK 😉👍

Of course, once you get started I will be following your WIP anyway :) Had a brief look tonight, I was sure I had more photos of the Carrera GT both from the museum but also from a car meet in Dubai where I used to live for some years, but I could find none? Eventually I‘ll find them!

No rush my friend it's going to be a while before I start the build anyway 🙂👍

Hoping to finally finish the 911 that @Marco F. so kindly sent me the steel wheels for today - unless another disaster befalls it...!! :rolleyes:

Cheers Keith, it's a kit I've been considering tackling for a while having thourghly enjoyed Tamiya's smaller version a kit I built a couple of years ago 

I actually think that this is probably my best car build to date, I was really happy with the end result 🙂👍

 

That looks very nice Andy, most of the Tamiya Porsche kits seem to go together very nicely indeed.

Here is a quick photo of mine.

I don't think I will be able to resist starting this build when it arrives so I had better get my finger out and finish the outstanding DIY jobs ASAP 🙂👍

I got one of these off ebay for £21 the other week.  A lot cheaper than any other Focus I've seen on there for a a long while too. And I did fancy a Safari car at some point.

 

I've seen the real one of these at the Ford place in Cumbria whilst doing a photography job on a WRC Escort.

 

(not my photo. But it's the same kit).

Hiya Keith...well I would define a while as a very considerable amount of time especially in my case 🙂. My hobby savings are gone, kaputt, nadder, zilch etc Although not a cheap kit it's not as expensive as some I've seen and tbh as soon as I saw it ....well I just had to build it. Slightly foolish maybe for someone who rarely finishes a large scale kit and possibly above my skill level in certain areas but what the heck i can't wait to give it a go and hopefully it won't be too long before I can get started 🙂👍

Absolute bargain, well done

You can still get the occasional bargain off Ebay amongst all the buyers who try to sell used kits for more money than you can still get them new from some of the dealers

It always pays to check :) 

Like at the weekend when I saw a 98 Subaru in a well battered box £25 and the bloke on the stall was giving me the "bargain for such a rare kit mate" talk, then I showed him I could get a brand new one delivered to my door off ebay for £22 on my phone, sometimes I love technology :)

Finally arrived 🥳

I'd been after one of these for ages, but the price of the originals was always way too high, then I considered the Italeri version, but I try and steer clear of Italeri kits as I've had some poor experiences in the past, they may have got better, but I'm still sceptical. So when Tamiya said they were going to rerelease it I knew I'd have to have one as it was the first big F1 car I built as a teenager and I never did it justice then, I remember watching the turbo era and the Renaults always come to my memory :)
