Cool - we can pester JC together! ūüėĄHad to look Gemballa up. I like their body tweaks, but a bit out of my experience bracket. Would be good to watch you do it though, Dann!

Dann might teach us both how to build a better Porsche. :)

Cool, I first heard of the yellowbird from the gran tourismo games but I thought it was a wider body. It had to be one of the best cars in the game and having it and the suzuki escudo jeep thing in the garage meant being pretty much unbeatable, lol.

I'm a not very wide body fan. But for a Gemballa, there's this. IIRC there was cabrio too, white box art. Fujimi may have done one, but I think it was a Koenig, simple kit. 

Boxart Porsche 911 Gemballa Avalanche 7160 Revell

I'm about to order up the Tamiya GT2 "street version" #TAM24247 ... any thoughts on it before I pull the trigger?

I really need to stop though, I think I've ordered 17 kits in the last week. I'm literally having to sneak them in the house at this point!

My wife is eventually gonna train the dog to bite the UPS guy... 

I've got the sickness bad lol.

That is a great looking Porsche! If mine turns out half as decent I'll be happy.

I dig that color also... and the Stig is awesome!
