Model box art started to disappear when certain countries introduced laws that the packaging had to show the actual contents and not an impression. Which is why you started to get boxes with a photo of the made up model, but unpainted, on the box lid.
Dear me. I had no idea why they disappeared. I always thought it was cost: It cost more to commission a painter to render a scene than pay a photographer to shoot the model for the cover. I guess not!

Hi All:

I'm watching a 1961 era video titled "British Racing Green". The film is getting ready to show the '61 GT race at Goodwood. (just finished watching Sir Sterling Moss win the F1 race at Silverstone!) As the cars were being lined up, I saw this Porsche GT:

281202


Anyone know what version/model/whatever that is? Seems too low and stretched to be a 356-based car. A GT RS?

Kind of like it.

A brief courtesy note to thank everyone for contributing such excellent material for this thread. I've repeatedly pored over each post, and continue to marvel at the cars.

Thank you again, and to reiterate, please keep 'em coming.

Some 911 models

1/40th scale by Jouef, not the original rear tyres.

281284


another Jouef

281285


And again

281286


I also have a spear yellow Jouef body.

Awaiting in the wings, just need to decide which Le mans car it will be and if I am keeping it an RS or converting back to S spec rear end

281287


And on it's way, left Heathrow yesterday, for conversion

Apart from a few 1960's cars, 904, 906 and 917, I'm not a big Porsche follower, says he :whistle:

These are probably mainly 911's but that's nor on the chassis so I have listed them separately. In fact the all say Carrera.

The left hand car #63 is Atrin's 1/43rd scale attempt at the harlequin car. The white car is also an Artin. The black car just has Porsche on the chassis but the stickers say 959.

These two, again 1/43rd scale are unbranded Hong Kong made cars.

281307


These two are Artin 1/43rd scale again and just say Carrera on the chassis with GT3 stickers.

281308


Finally two Jouef 1/40th scale cars again only listed as Porsche Carrera

281309


This one is still in the bubble packaging.
