Hi there,
why dont we make a porsche 911 contest/section?

It is a subject nearly all of us like and own in all versions, from street ones to racing ones, from 935s to RWBs.

just wonder....why not? no time limit to make the models, maybe every year a votation about the nicest done during the year,possibility to make everything based on 911's, from street ones to 959's to gt1's or 901s .
Everything coming from this immortal car.:lol:...

can be a cool idea,isnt it?

I really like Porsche, and it can be a cool idea, but I won't go till a dedicated section or you'll see all Ferrari fans claim for same, and then Nissan fans too, either Toyota fans... etc etc
A Porsche build contest would be cool though. ;)

I'd like to see the results, but wouldn't enter myself - I can't STAND Porsche!
Utterly bland, boring and repetetive. (Now I'll get shot down in flames!!!!)
I did build the little 1/43 high-detail Renaissance 935 kit a while back and it was amazing, but that's more down to the kit (1/43 with almost 300 parts!) rather than the car. I've also got the big Tamiya 1/12 beastie, but TBH, haven't had the urge to do more than open the box a few times.
Immortal???
Grass is immortal but I wouldn't want to build kits of it........
Right - now my head is down.

ahah Roy :)
It is the only sportscar germans can make. for different "estro", u shall travel 500 kmts south to Zuffenhausen and arrive to Maranello... but thats another story ;)

Contest idea is cool I think, surely as Phil says, better than a proper section only dedicated to her.
Maybe an open contest without any deadline, just to show the 911's done by every modeller here.
many many build up those cars I see.. ;)

But how to do such?maybe we need a moderator fixing the rules? dunno really..

We normally have a year-end contest, so we can either have a special award within it, or have a themed group build toward the end of the first half of each year to even out the workload.
Perhaps the winner of the MOTY may be awarded with the privilege of choosing the theme (or several themes to be voted by the members)? That should add a little bit of fun.
Incidentally, I just bought a 911 kit yesterday, so whatever the 911 event is going to be, I'll be in, so long as the deadline is several months away.:grinyes:

I am in the idea not to make any deadline, just a report of all works done year by year.

People can feel forced to finish (read rush, and thats never good in modelling) the model and thats something I dont like. It will be enough to make a long forum collection of those nice cars, united by the fact to be all 911's.in an unique year by year production contest.
Every year there is a group of finished models and they can be voted by members.
Then they all remain joined in an hall of fame for others/new members that simply wanna see all theme thematically together.

I am looking the FB porsche classic foto collection. they are incredible. wonder how nice can it be to do the same...with modelling :)

So why not a thread that will compile all Porsche build threads links ?
And in this main thread a contest year by year by listing builds completed in the year ?
No dead line as any build unfinished a year could be listed the following year once completed.
Something close to what we did with Ferrari 60's anniversary or McRae tribute builds, dead line less...

I Like your Idea! Its been awhile since AF did a Community Build (Last one was the Cayman Interseries which became very popular! Even had the Drivers watching!!)
But I do think it needs to be a build contest with an end date (to motovate people to build) & maybe a prize aswell. I recently competed in Community Build project for GTRs which was heaps of fun (& late nights!) & thought of rasing the issue here, but couldnt think of an approiate theme. I like yours, most people have a Porsche in their collection or their to-build pile & theres heaps of Variations!

Or discourage...!?! :confused:

I really don't think an end date is fair for everyone.
Just see the number of entering people compared to the number or real submissions at the end...
Either it's a one shot contest with an end date or it's a yearly sumup and prized of builds letting everyone decide when they enter and when they end their builds.
Depending on what we expect of it, being a unique year event or being a forum perpetual story.
I think Paolo's first idea was more the second point.

Yes, my idea was to let it open, cause I've seen in such contest the deadline for models is usually respcted by few modellers , mainly for a matter of time.
For example, the stunning masterpiece in progress by SB can enter the contest too, but probably he will finish the model in 2015.
Big big gallery contest with all all models presented by 1 or 2 pics and the referred wip below. :)
simple and easy to enter for all.

I agree with the idea to have a yearly contest and if you don't have the model in that year, you can post your model to the following. In this way, you don't have an end date that can be "damage" your model to get it on time.

I think we have to decide for a thread name evocating enough our subject, put a few rules inside, and collect eventual already published builds links.
I can open the thread at the start of the year if you want.
May put a few things and thoughts on paper and submit them to you by PM before posting anything to see if you're ok with it...
It's nothing too difficult or being able to compromise anything here as long as it's done with sens and according forum rules respect.
Just a (kind of) group build :biggrin: :grinyes:

Here are some useful threads you can use as a reference.
Ferrari 60th Anniversary
http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=668842&highlight=group

Lotus 7 Group build
http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=595355

Cayman Interseries
http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=1010880&highlight=cayman

Ferrari and Cayman threads have a table of contents, which constantly got updated as a new participant joined, and I think it's a great idea. Super7's first post is simple and easy to understand, so you can use it as a template.

As to why do we do this? Well...I just realized that 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of 911's introduction (in the form of 901 prototype) at Frankfurt auto show in Sep 1963, so you can use it as a reason.
Deadline can be Aug 31, 2013, or the day before 2013 Frankfurt show (9/10-9/22) to save the last-minute finishers?

Eligible subjects that I can think of are Porsche 911 (including 901, 912), as well as racing variations based on the 911 platform, like the 934, 935, 953, and GT1, 2, 3.
I think Ruf cars should be eligible so long as the platform is based on the 911.

959 and 961 are debatable because their platforms are not exactly based on the 911, but many of us probably have the kits waiting to be built, and if we include the 911GT1-98, I think the 959 and 961 are okay as an exception (kind of like an honorable mention).

As seen in the past group builds, the participants don't necessarily finish their models, but I think it's okay. To maximize the number of participants, as well as to avoid alienating the slow-builders, any build beyond the dry-fit stage should be included in the final gallery thread, because there are so many 911 models out there, and even unfinished models can provide a useful piece of information (especially to the younger modelers).

Multiple entries by the same member should be okay.

Participants should/shouldn't be encouraged to mention their participation in their own personal website and social network pages?

Any volunteer who wants to design a banner/icon?

Information to collect from each participant is the subject name, scale, manufacturer, and the link to each WiP thread, I guess?

That's all I can think of off the top of my head at this moment.

ok guys, think we nearly defined all.
Phil for me it is ok to start this new thread in 2013. very nice also the idea to consider it a sort of celebration of the 50 yrs of the 901 from 1963.
The only models I will exclude are pure racers really not at all involved to 911, as 917, 962,928, 924,904..
btw, think u all understand NINE ELEVEN cars :)

When u have time send me few lines about your idea of the rules, mines are quite clear, and I really would like to let all modelllers the most open possibility ever,still without any deadline. if somebody wanna join in 2 yrs cause he falls in love to a 934 or an rwb, he is just wellcome, as well as the firend making the long threads in bigger scales.
If u can I prefer u to open it, just because u have more forum experience than me (u are in since 2005) so you have seen more similar ideas coming to life :)

Open list editable,with names subject and scale.
multiple subjects are available too, also to see different skills in action ( the martini's car are inside all our stash, and all love to have at least one to see in own showcase..;))
Everybody can mention his own model on web pages. It is just a positive point for forum knowledge around the net.

The target of all this will be create inside here a wonderful selection of the many stunning 911 based models we see in wips and complete gallery.

so happy many ones already like the idea. simple task..a lot of models and reason more to consider this place one of the best around for modelling.

Paolo,
I agree to keep our interest on 911 and derivated models (934, 964, 996, 997...) and exclude 917, 956 and such other racers.
I will start writting something asap and let you see it. Not that I'm more experienced here but I saw a few group build threads and I was also moderator on a french forum and organized such things there.
So I should be able to get something usefull.
Will let you know soon.

I'm ok to add the 356, and what about the 914...?
I am for 911 and derivated models but I'm also more and more wondering if it better shouldn't be a Porsche theme in general, some of us may be interested in LeMans and share great builds but not inevitably in road cars, excluding them may be hard to justify, also would be justifying why a 356 or 914 and not a 962, why a rally 934 and not a LM car...
911 is the spiritual mother of every Porsche, isn't it...? :lol:
What do you think ?

my gut says it should be all Porsche.

it will make categories for a competition easier to judge if it comes to it.

356
911
race
other (er.. does this include tanks....?)

as for general group build, a generational display of 911 is always cool in my books.

lovegt40
12-20-2012, 12:34 PM
in my opinion should be better keep the idea around the 911 and maybe the 356s, cause the car philosophy was very near between the 2 subjects.
If we anyway want to make it as anniversary event, the date shall be fixed strictly in 1963, so this mean ONLY 901/911, that was my original purpouse.
Porsche was founded if I am not wrong in 1931, and the factory production of the company was of course involved in Hitler idea, being Ferdinand so close to his political view.
It means to include tanks as Elefant, Ferdinands, and the many incredibly proprotype this german genius did during his activity (VK-4501, the first series of the Kingtigers turrents, the prototypes of the schmallturm, The Maus monster.......).
...and we cant skip what is claimed to be the alltime rekord car of all times: The beetle,created by Ferdinand Porsche too.
It will become too dispersive.

Also cars as the 956/962 or all the "pure" racers from Le Mans,thinking at LMP1 cars, Dauer dp 962's, can make it all become too big and dispersive.I love theme, but they are probably not suitable for this idea.

Of course guys this is just my opinion, if u all would prefer something COMPLETELY dedicated to porsche just tell it and we can talk.

All this talk is making me in the mood to see all the boxes of my 911's around here..:D. suspect many of u are thinking and planning some cool buildups too ;)

Phil, yes please, I remain of the idea that will be too helpful if u can help me with your forum experience.I dont claime any honor for this nice idea :) just want to see (and make) the models... :)
Few basic/easy rules...and a lot of pics.

Ok Paolo, well thinking to it again and reading your lines it's true that launching this idea as a tribute to the 911 anniversary it's more logical to keep it as close as possible to the 911 and her direct derivated models and evolutions.
I think there is enough to build around the 911.
So the idea is to avoid all racers not build from a 911 or derivated, and as much as I know there wasn't any road version of the 956, 962 etc.
But we can't avoid the 935 if not wanting to do without the exceptional 1/8 and 1/12 build around this version. :dunno:

So just to see if we have a first agreement on the theme it could be:

For sure: 911 and derivated / evolutions - 912, 901, 964, 930, 934, 991, 993, 996 & 997.
All racing (GT2/3 - what about LM GT1?) and rallying version (carrera, carrera RS, SC RS...) of those cars as tuned versions (RWB, Gemballa...)

To confirm:
- Boxter and cayman (close to 911 even if not 911)
- 935
- 356

Excluded:
- Carrera GT, Panamera & Cayenne (?)
- 936, 917, 956, 962
- 924 & 944
- 914

Does it seem fair and correct ? Have I forgotten some cars ?

think it is perfect.
Cayman and 968 Boxster can be ok, too,as well as the 356 (so auw12, u are welcome :))

I anyway absolutely would like to include also the 935,if u all agree.
When SB masterpiece will be completed I think that model can be one of the real super ones inside our galleries.
935 was the last evolution of the 911's until the gt1's of the 90s. However we can discuss if include or not the gt1 EVO 98 (where think only the front lights were coming from the 996's), but being so rare model if someone wanna build it...we can anyway accept her imho.
Of course also in the excluded cars are all the others (incredibly nice cars btw) as 908, 910, bergspyders, 904, alms, dauer, DP, zimmermann and/or 962 derivated.

we can start ! :)
the 2013 is here soon. Hope someone from porsche Ag. will take a look at this interesting collection coming soon.

Ok it seems we are our allowed entries !! :biggrin:
I think the GT1, even if it has a road version, can be left beside. It's not really the 911 spirit but a pure LM racer.

In the coming daus I will write the first shot of thread rules, but it will be very simple and all said in a few lines.

I already went to the flat this afternoon to bring back home my Porsche kits !! :lol: :lol:

ahaha...we all already planning. this is only positive.
Also i checked mines...too many ones to build...and also some mad ideas coming from the too nice newer interpretations of the classic ones as RS are.

Lets plan also about the logo.
we can work on something around the shape only of the 911 essential. I was thinking at the pic I posted in first page (post #6), with maybe the 50th anniversary.
The font I think should be the "911 porscha" one.
Also here, if someone is skilled with corel or photoshop, lest spend 3 minutes in think something nice (we shall also make a little poll for the logo if more tha one arrive).

sooo?what 911 to start with for me? huum hummm.. mirror mirror on the wall.. :)

If we include the Cayman and Boxster, which share many 911 components, the GT1 96 and 97 should qualify, because they do use the street 911's front end among other things. GT1-98 is a purpose-built racer, but the name is Porsche 911 GT1-98, not Porsche GT1 or anything else, so I think it qualifies as a loophole. :) (Doesn't mean I'm committed to building my Modeler's kit, but just sayin'.)

Perhaps, we can have two threads, one for "911 + derivatives" and the other for non-911 Porsche vehicles. (even tanks!).

I also like "Everything Porsche" because it's the simplest, and we can expect a greater number of participants.

The 911 contest is a great idea.

And why not open another thread like... "911 - Inspiration Point" for story, references and photos, the most important or rare or... bizzarre??

I'm up for it. Magnus Walker has been a inspiration lately and this will give me an excuse to do a build I have in mind.

I'd suggest going with the anything Porsche concept, when you start to be restrictive with GB's that start to fail.

Mmm... So it seems there is two ways of seeing this group build.

So here is what I suggest.
As it's meant to be a 911 tribute, and as it's supposed to survive through years, why not having a restricted theme year by year inside an all Porsche theme...?

For example, we consider it's an all Porsche group build, but each year will be dedicated to the 911 and derivated...? :dunno:
2014 could be a LM theme, or rally, or...
If we set a yearly contest at the end of the year only models of the current theme will be taken, other will contest during following years depending on the matching theme.
(That means you could post your build when you want, each theme will consider all builds published matchinb the theme of the year)
As from the start we want to let people enter this group build anywhen they start and end their builds, that could be a solution to satisfy as much builders as possible.

As long as nobody comes with a tank it will be fine !! :lol: :lol:


Paolo, it's your baby, you decide how to finally call it ! :icon16: :iceslolan

I think the line will be anniversary from 1963 for porsche 911 as we said few before.
Porsche is a great company making too much stuff. I was part of the modellers of a similar collection dedicated to anniversary to our Alfa Romeo stuff, started only as cars and few planes and ended in a giant expo including also kitchens,boats, steam machines, submarines, Antonov planes with engines rebuild by Alfa.

Think it becomes too much.

I think it will be better take it all around the "911 saga", making a main post where all can post ONE single pic of the work and the line under is retaking to the wip/ or eventually personal gallery of the complete model. (maybe simply placing the pre name as [911 theme or 911 saga,or even better ONLY 911] before the description of the model into wip section.
Something similar and clear as in the AFMOTY.
Also was thinking to include in this giant 911 gallery the alredy done models inside the forum or the ones currently in progress, if the single modeller agree to this, in the idea to create a very big and interesting modelling gallery (that is the main sense of an idea as this).

We have seen 911 theme gives already a LOT of cool ideas, from racers, to tuning replicas, to rusty dioramas.Think it is enough this way and not so much dispersive.
Call it also group build is ok, even if I think can be cool anyway give an yearly votation to the works done (nothing to win, just maybe a banner and a lot of glory..LOL)

.... as if this is not enough, I just added 2 others 911 to my 45 kit car collectin acheved at today.

The 911 is the big bone keeping alive Porsche AG. since half a century.
They made too much good cars,very often excellent.
But nine eleven is always THE 911, and in its genre is the german mith on 4 wheels. The modelling spirit must be the same imho ;)

OK that will be the last word, we'll keep the first idea, 911 and derivated model.

I'll prepare the project tomorrow and submit it to you Paolo.

We'll have a few days to set it up for start of 2013.

eheh, really thank u for the help and support Phil. This is not only my idea, is OUR one.
..and btw, if guys prefer, is also ok not to make any annual votation but just a long sweet and infinite 911 gallery ;)

and obviously any scale is wellcome.

We already have several dedicated threads called "meet" in the gallery section where members can post photos of finished models at any given time, including Porsche Meet. (We just don't have 911 one.)
http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=108125

What you can do is, once you assemble group build contents (names, photos and links to WIPs), wait until feedback slows down (after 1-2 months), then copy the contents to start a new thread "911 Meet" in the gallery section. That way, you can jump-start 911 Meet with lots of photos right off the bat, and the thread can remain open even after the group build is over. (Like evolving a group build into a meet thread).

Alternatively you can assemble group build contents, and use it as the first post of 911 Meet thread. Then there'll be only one 911 dedicated gallery thread, which is simpler, saves time and workload, and avoids confusion of having multiple gallery threads.

Or, a mod may want to simply re-name AF Group Build 2013: 50 Years of Porsche 911 (or whatever the title will be) into 911 Meet (formally blah blah blah).

Edit: Actually, the gallery index already includes the past GB links, so we don't even have to re-name the title.

Assuming the 935 gets an invite to the party, count me in with the Moby Dick! It's clearly a good idea to have some sort of anniversary thread based around the 911, and I'll happily add to it. Whether it is decided to have some sort of contest involved or not, I will declare now that I won't be entering the Moby into competition (whenever it's finished) - after the 908 I've decided to quit while I'm ahead...

I'm a bit late to set the rules and send them for validation to Paolo, having been absent today, final rush before Christmas days...

Everything will come between Christmas and New Year Day so we will be able to start at the first days of 2013.
