A guided tour

Since I'm living at home while attending graduate school, I am once again in my childhood bedroom. It has changed a bit since I moved out - as my tastes have changed considerably, but it still feels (charmingly, i hope) like the room I grew up in.

I thought some of you guys might dig all the Porsche stuff.

(oh, and ignore the outer space wallpaper trim. It is a relic from when I was 10 years old)

the girl in the pic is my (most-of-the-time) girlfriend of about 5 years

the scrambled picture is two wolves howling at the moon. we bought that in a mall, before the movie MallRats and the trendy MagicEye books that made those things a craze.

I have a "McQueen Drives Porsche" vintage poster on its way from Germany right now... i think i may frame that and put it where the MagicEye poster is now.

I see you don't have a model car of a 944.
I been looking for one for quite some time.
Has anyone seen a model car of a 944? I've seen 924's and a 924 Carrera GT but NEVER a 944.

I read that Sam Raimi (sp?) is working on a Freddie vs. Jason vs. Ash movie.

yen, no I don't think there is a 1/18 scale 944 series car out yet... I think they are currently planning one, though. There IS a set from Porsche of 1/43 scale front-engine cars. I believe the set is a 924, 944, 951, and 968.

tim, i'm not sure if Sam Raimi is working on the movie, but Bruce Campbell said he would love to do that project as long as he can be guaranteed a win for Ash (duh).

Testors makes a 1/24 944 model kit. Its been a long time since I've seen one though. I'm sure any local hobby shop or the net could track one down if anyone really wanted one.

well, all of my Porsche models are 1/18 scale, which i think is the best-looking size... i am hoping a 1/18 944 comes out some day.

The Testors/Italleri 944 and 951 kits are no longer made. You'll have to source one thru ebay or some other similar venue. I have a red 951 kit still in the box unbuilt, and a silver euro 944S kit still in the box unbuilt. Future winter projects when I'm not working on the large real life version.
