LMM Porsche 917LH 1971 Martini team

1/24 scale LeMans Miniature Porsche 917LH from Lemans 1971. I used recast Fujimi 917 wheels because I didnt like the kit wheels (wrong aspect ratio on the tires). Scratchbuilt a few small details. Krylon paint with Future clear coat brushed on.







When I saw a similar picture of the real car, I knew I would build a model of it.




comments welcome

More photos. I am linking to a Fotki album, which resizes all pics to this size. If you go to the Fotki album and click on the 'Get Original Uploaded Photo' for a pic, it may be larger.

Model looks awesome.

You can set the size of the linked images. Fotki's standard view size is small (I believe it's 500 X 500), but you can set the linked size up to 1000 X 1000.

First go to the menu and click on "Album Properties".

Then scroll down and click on "Advance Properties".

Down a few lines you can set the photo view size. I like 800 X 800 the best.

Example (this is linked to the original size):
