  1. One of my favorite LeMans cars and you definitely created a beauty, John @jluetich
    Happy New Year and all the best

  2. I saw this car race at the 6 hour Watkins Glen race along with the other 917s.
    I bought the heller kit in Paris in the 70s, it had the Gulf colors for over 20 years before I rebuilt it.

  3. Excellent build, John!
    Like @johnb, this is one of my favorite Le Mans racing cars!
    It is really great that you bring out your car models!

  4. I love it. That was the time I was into both Grand Prix and endurance races !
    Glorious days, amazing machines. Very nice model too.
    Happy New Year.

  5. Everyone’s favourite Porsche but I still prefer the Martini colours.
