Porsche backgrounds

Post by Galaxy Gaz » Fri Nov 10, 2017 10:36 am

After adding so many models this year , its time I started taking some pics , so rather than just use a standard plain background , I thought I would try another couple of purpose made backdrops .
These were bought from Ebay specifically for my Porsches , the showroom version for my roadcars and the racetrack version for my racecars .
They were great value for money and are nice quality . There are lots of scenarios to choose from , so I can definately see a few more of these heading my way

Sorry Gaz, I was just a teasing. Its actually a HO (1:87) scale model railway kit with Herpa models :

Seriously though, I think you could sell a ton of these if someone made them in 1:43.

Thanks for the lead Gary - a couple are now heading my way, although I couldn’t find a Porsche one I liked :D

Maybe you should talk to the guy about a commission deal!

Frederic Cros is a member of S143 but didn’t Respond to a suggested forum discount. I have about 10 of these diss and can heartily recommend them.

His only problem is that he doesn't ship overseas (or at least not to Brazil) :(

You may not believe it but there is a guy from Brazil who makes Porsche dealerships with great quality in 1/43 scale, however, he works only by demand.

I would settle for a generic garage and/or race tracks.

Those backgrounds are excellent. I have had tons of these on my watchlist for over a year. I can't decide which ones to get :lol:
That dealership is pretty cool but where do you put something like that, its so big.
