1/12th MFH Porsche 917K

Post by daves »

Hi all, Have not posted in awhile. I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes. Hope my modeling improves. My color perception certainly has.
Recently finished the 1971 917K LeMans winner. I have done several of the MFH 917 cars. My experience has taught me that the doors and the rear deck do not fit well. My solution has been to display them open. On this build I decided to permanently fit the door and deck making it a expensive curbside.
I am happy with the results.

Dave

Great model, too bad you had to fix the hood and doors.

Very nice build. Shame you had to "lock it down", but still a beauty.

Nice work Dave.

Did the doors need much work to fit in the closed position? I have the 917LH to build for a friend and they're a right royal pain!
