Midweek Diversion - Another 1:43rd Porsche - 904
Couldn't resist another ebay purchase - it was sold from an estate and the seller wasn't even sure what kind of car it was. No one else bid on it and it arrived from Oregon in three days - all for less than $20.00 USD including shipping. It came with the original case too. It's in 1:43rd scale which is about the closest you can get with diecast cars to go with 28mm figures. This is another favorite of mine - the famed Porsche 904 which debuted in 1963.
Here it is, appropriately, with a couple of Fallshirmjaeger. Something I'm sure they would've driven off-duty had it existed back in the 30's and 40's. It was famed for it's durability and performance, and looks pretty cool to boot.
