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 ...
Cheers,
Roman

... some more WIP pictures. Front suspension, turbo boost adjustment wheel "Dampfrad" (was not included in the kit), seat (with new etched parts for the buckle) and all wires and hoses are installed now. What's left is painting the bodywork

Outstanding work. I built this a year ago so I know how challenging a build it is. You have added a lot of scratch made details which have made it a true museum piece.
Looking forward to seeing the body work.
