Hi everyone, it’s been a while! I’ve been lazy and have neglected posting.

Here’s a project I finished up a bit ago. A while back I bought a lot of Hong Kong unbranded race car diecasts, and a pair of very sad 917s were in there. This is my favorite model of the 917, the 1969 917-S. This was the original configuration of the short-tail 917 and it was a complete disaster. It only competed 3 times before being shelved for the developing 917K.

In addition to the repaint, I added the tri-spoke Matchbox wheel that I love so much and built the rear flaps from metal rod, fishing line, and a Coke can. Finally my sugar addiction is good for something!
