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.

Gary, I was wondering how long it would take you to display these :D I did see the Porsche Museum background the other week and thought of you! Nice work by the way.

I'm off to the museum next February, never been before so looking forward to it.

Dealership diorama would be indeed awesome but I'd need bigger house before I could have one :D
