Uli, welcome back, we missed you! Thanks for posting these, for those of us who have both a 917/30 and a 917K on the to be built schedule, your work is inspiring! I am in preliminary planning for a trip to the Porsche Museum in August, I promise to call!

thx folks

Bill, that's fantastic news that you plan to come to Germany. It will be a great pleasure for me to meet you in Zuffenhausen (factory tour included) ! Will be also a good opportunity to talk about the 917-023 project

On a slightly unrelated sidenote. The Porsche Museum posted pics of a recreated 917 LH 1969, two 917/30s and
a 917K at Goodwood. And from what I read elsewhere the /30 is supposed to be shown at the museum from May
onwards. I would love for them to show the recreated 1969 car as well (and of course have a model of it) and I
would stop by for some reference picture gathering.

On the subject of this model - I think trying to recreate the welds to match the actual car would be madness. I
would just used generic weld lines, but I would lay up some fibreglass to recreate the actual fibreglass parts of
the car more realisticly :). Yes, one can dream ...
