D,
The Porsche Ribbon will always hold a special spot in my ribbon collection, as it's my 1st car ribbon but certainly not the last.

Ok folks, I have awarded ribbons for the completed builds (holding one in reserve for Patrick once he tidies up some little details).

Many thanks to everybody who has participated here, both with builds and with comments, advice and support. It has been a great Group Build to follow.

Special mention to Gabriel with his multiple build effort!!

Looking forward now to the Blue Oval Group Build starting in 4 weeks.

Cheers, D

Sorry, ran out of time and patience. Final fitment popped loosed the windshield and I have no more time fix today. Hopefully teh Blue Oval will be better to me.



Keep at it Patrick, I'm happy to throw a ribbon at you once you get it over the line! I'm looking forward to the result of your build here.

Cheers, D

D,
Six across the finish line out of the 10 enlistees is pretty good if you ask me. But like you, I'd like to see the other 4 finish as well.

It's just the 10 enlistees that I thought was a little disappointing, but the good news is that the Ford Blue Circle GB has 20 enlistees with hopefully a few more to sign up.

One week left to roll home in this Group Build folks, I'm not sure if there are any more in-progress builds in the home straight, but if anybody wants to have a go at a speed-build "hot lap" in the final week, go for it!

I have the current completed builds listed as follows:

Tinbanger (Richard)
AussieReg (Damian)
Szmann (Gabriel)
Ray_from_SA (Ray)
Cosimodo (Michael)
Joel_W (Joel)

Cheers, D

D & Joel I have posted two photos in the GB link.
Joel I must do better next model build and not lose so many parts!
See you in the Oval GB!



Ricard,
I'm heading on over to checkout your pictures. This officially qualifies you for the Coveted Porsche Ribbon

You did an exceptional job on the build, and over came some missing parts with superb scratch building that would have me banging my head against the bench trying to come up with a solution other then buying a 2nd kit.

Looking forward to seeing everyone start at the start of the Ford GB.

No luck with 956 either, but at least I got to thin my stash by three Porsche kits and got some exercise painting and decaling cars

Just to clarify the windshield issue: Repsol 962C had the pre-attached windshield. The Canon 956 had traditional separate windshield.



Hi Pasi.

I'm sorry to hear that another kit has dropped off the list, but as you said, practice makes perfect! I'm sure that you picked up some useful skills along the way.

Cheers, D

Pasi,
Really sorry to hear that neither kit made it to the finish line. But look at the bright side that you gained more auto modeling experience.

Why not join us for the Ford Blue Circle GB starting Oct 1. We'd love to have you join us.

Richard,
Now that's one impressive Porsche build for sure. You did an exceptional job what turned out to be one difficult build.

Neat work Richard, looks great! Well done getting this build across the line and into the garage. The brown/black combination works well.

If you get time, drop a couple of images into the Porsche Number 1 Group Build Gallery .

Cheers, D

Pat, there is no obligation to finish the campaign, mate. You can pick it up where you left it off any time in our Garage Queen series... Family first!

Pat,
I've got similar issues plus Medicaid issues as well with my Mother n Law, so I know what you're going through especially as you wife is at home. As Damian said family always 1st.

Whenever you get the build done is fine with us.

Just to keep you aware...struggling with the Sebring 917K. Wife has PD and dementia and that is taking lots of my time. Getting there with the model but it run up to the deadline. Just an FYI. Pat

Less than 3 weeks to run here folks, definitely turning in to the home straight with the finish line in view.

It will be great to see a couple of late completions to add to the Gallery, and I will put together a feature from the photos posted through the duration of the Group Build.

Richard,
OMG!! My wife would certainly without any doubt kill me for spending nearly $1,000 on a lath for modeling. I can get away with a lot, but I'm not so sure about this.
