I will start my project soon too. I have a commission from a member here to build a build a brass and wire frame to fit under a Carrera Porsche 904, so that should be of interest to lots of folks.

I presume we start a new thread in this forum for each build?

I looked through my stockpile of stuff and the first thing I will be building is a 132 Porsche 911 RSR. Shell is a ARII plastic kit that I am going to use as a master and then pop some shells( RSR are one of my Favorite cars so I will need more shells)

For sure I will do a 143 car after that. Just not sure what yet.

Cheers

Dan

Whatever happened to this? Seems that the challenge was never completed as advertised.

Well, sometimes life gets in the way and these things just lose steam.

I did a project here as best I could following the guidelines LINK

Sometimes this happens.

I'll shut this one down and maybe we can do something more in the future.

Well there is no more contest, I updated the forum and rules to reflect that.

But by all means build :)

Read the forum rules and we will follow along with your step by step.

Sorry i dropped the ball on this one. As Harry said, life stuff got in my way. I hope everyone keeps building and showing their cars. It was and is a great way to help newcomers learn the tricks of our hobby. We dont need a contest teally, as we all win on this one.
