I saw that earlier, beauty! Yes, you are correct, a German retailer. Please review it!

I wanted to use that wheel as well but my beef with it is it only comes with the center lock option. I think this is better:

Perfect, the Italian seller went AWOL and today, ebay refunded me.

Agreed!
btw I'll be doing this wheel swap on my Ruf, so if you want the same on yours, let me know
Yes please, I need to measure the wheel diameter on my GT3 model, cause I plan on using the existing tires. Unless of course, the 3D printed wheels come with tires? I ordered the 32mm ones but unfortunately, the seller disappeared.

Thank you in advance if this works out.

that was for Kraftig, but sure I can print a set out for you too. No they don't come with tires.

Nothing too exciting but got this 1/18 964 Turbo 3.6 from Solido in Wimbledon Green Metallic on sale. A decent model for the price, honestly.

Great '90s color. I have that model in what I think is Cobalt Blue. Nice model for not much money.

Here we have the 1/18 scale Porsche 911 S/T “Specification “ in Viper Green from German retailer Car.tima. If I have time I will try to take more photos and maybe write something up about this model. The bottom line is that my expectations were low for this model and I considered returning it or selling it off... then I actually received the model and was impressed. The model is of course sealed, but it seems better quality and more detailed than comparable priced Spark Porsche 911s.

As mentioned in a previous post last week it's not a replication of a genuine 1970-71 911 S/T, but rather a homage to one, hence the name “Specification”, I could go into nerdy details on why it's not a S/T but I will spare you all. I do wish someone would make a real S/T to add to my collection, but for now this one will do.

That is awesome looking & such a perfect color. If you do end doing a separate thread/review, please do nerd-out & list the reasons. I, & I'm sure others, would like to know.

Absolutely, I will see what I can do. I have something more or less written up already, just need pictures.
The color, which a great Porsche color, is actually one of the issues with the model, but I will get to that. :lol:
