Teutonic Tuesday: Buch der Weisheit. Und Panning.

Once in a while you run into something special. And weird. And when this happens, it’s usually French. Or Italian. Or... Japanese. So when I spotted this Book of Wisdom on this year’s RS Fest no way I could resist. Certainly not for those lousy 5 euros.

And yes: I’ll have to excuse to all those other Porsche enthusiasts as I should have bought ‘m all and have them stored for some next and future iHWEP. Or is it just me?

Because opening this reveals a lot. Awesome pictures. Of every single generation of the 911. And lots of very interesting information about those. At least: that’s what I think as my Japanese has been a bit rusty lately.

But that last page is the best. As it reveals a 1/43 widow-maker, the capo di tutti capi dei 911’s, the 930. Or 911 Turbo.

But with all those Japanese lingo going on I cannot distract much info to be shared over here. There’s probably no need for this anyway as the 930 is a well-known sports car. With a 4-speed. So, I present you some shots to reveal the cast.

Painted rear-lights on a 1/43? That’s been a while. It certainly is not the best cast. That wings is awkwardly pointing upwards as well. And don’t look at those mirrors, not even close to reality.

But it’s awesome Fuchs wheels allow spinning. And that’s the only important thing anyway. So yes, panning is only a moment away.

And then all the details seem to become less important. And I got it for the complete package anyway.

The creator of all this infotainment is DelPrado, a company most known for it’s toy soldiers IIRC. It seems they have a thing for booklets in combination with cars like DeAgostini does.

And just as I wanted to get this book closed I spotted Karl Heinz in his Porsche 718. Luckily I was quick enough to shoot ‘m when he flew by.

Yes, I’ve improved on panning quite well if I compare it with my first attempt with this one. But it’s a bit tricked. Watch.

...on the wrong side of the car! I need to cut of his legs or something as he just fits his Brumm F1 car...

Danke schön und biss Freitag!
