I have to stop checking in here, just making me want to break into another Porsche project. 🤭  Coming along nicely!

Those wheels look GREAT, Bud!!!

Real happy with how the wheels turned out Dann.  I think my efforts more closely represent the 1:1.

Can't have too many Porsche projects on the forum Kurt.  Get your 275GTS build done and get started on a another Porsche! :)

I know right?  Have relatives to finish first, VW Bus and Audi Quattro.  Only then will I consider this:

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled program, RUF RUF!  Not roof rack

That's pretty neat!  Already got the Fujimi bike with photo-etch spokes, was planning to do my own bike. 🧐

Found some nice calipers and large diameter brakes.  Looks good without the wing as well.

So I am loving this build.  I am starting an Italeri Porsche 993 and doing it in Aventurine green.  This is really giving me some inspiration as I am kind of intimidated by the kit as I know it is kind of nasty to build.  Anyhow you are doing a great job.

Thanks David.  I have no experience with the Italeri Porsche kits but if I can help just ask. I have built other Italeri kits.  Look forward to seeing your project.
