So let’s show something completely different.
Stuttgart schaffts es wieder! It was terribly exciting this year. After I woke up in the morning finding out 2 out of 3 Toyotas were out of the race I was reminded about last year’s terrible results for the Japanese. As a Porsche fanatic it was good to find out Porsche #1 being in the lead with some LMP2s following,…
This car won the hardest race in the world in 1971. In 2017 it won again, by arriving all the way from Ireland just in time to accompany me while watching the 85th edition of the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans.
I’ve taken some inspiration from Jobjoris on this one! Of course, with this post the comic book is the real star.
Edu-petrolhead’s post on Rubens Barichello (who will be racing in this year’s Le Mans 24H in the LMP2 category in the #29 car with Racing Team Nederland alongside Dutch legend Jan Lammers and Frits van Eerd) showed a fun way to highlight a car using the driver’s carreer. So let’s dig into one of my favorite Scottish…
It’s a simple one, and not yet complete, but since I made some progress on it and finally found two of the three Raceday cars I’ve been looking for, I had to try it out.
Another LeMans post leading up to the big day. This one is as the title states, finished 6th overall and second in class according to Wikipedia.
Myself and Camshaft Chris on Friday with some new stuff
Since I got told pretty vehemently by Jobjoris to post something Le Mans-related, here is another Teutonic entry for today.
I didn’t have time to photograph any Le Mans cars yesterday, so instead I’ll show you guys these three Outlaws that I finished over the weekend.
Lovely model of the ferocious beast. I know this isn’t exactly a new model, but only yesterday did I find one in the wild. It’s taken me this long to own it, but I don’t mind.
Racing gets closer
Went a little 356-crazy this weekend... I recently got these three from R32rennsport so they were still sitting on my work bench, and I just couldn’t help myself.
I stopped at my local Porsche dealer today to pick up something for the Boxster. They usually have a nice selection of expensive 1/43 and 1/18 models that I always browse, but nothing really out of the ordinary. Today though, they had something special- an Amalgam 1/8 Porsche 919.
My man Witheredcustomz and I are in the middle of a custom-for-custom trade, and his end came in on Friday. There was a TON of amazing RAOK stuff in the box that I will share later, but here are the two customs, because they are insane.
Everyone loves Lego, right? Of course you do; you’re not some kind of monster. I’m sure that anyone who’s ever built a Lego car has wondered, at least in passing, say, wouldn’t it be great if I could just build a real car out of Lego? Just in case the weight and cost calculations didn’t wise you up about why that…
Tomica’s latest TLV Porsche 911S sure is great and a lot of us seem to have gotten it. We’ve all seen those recent posts on it. I got it as well and it’s my second TLV 911S, as I did get the yellow one over two years ago. What I don’t get however, is why those Minichamps64s in fact never really catched on.
No teasers for me. Just Tomica Limited Vintage goodness. These two came out last month or thereabouts and are superb. On the left is a Honda Prelude XX and on the right is a Porsche 911S.
So to start getting into the spirit, I took out my old friend, the Gozzy Kremer Racing Porsche 935 K3 that DNF’d in the 1980 version of Le Mans.
I finally found the latest batch of FF cars today, and apart from the missing (read; scalped) Johnny Tran Honda S2000, all other cars were present. Including this lovely blue Porsche. It’s also the only one I bought.
