Finally......here it is. Sorry for the long wait, Porsche Team members of Ape Fight's Classic Race Teams group.
My third attempt at a large scale car and turned out to be the 1970 Porsche 917. It was built for Ape Fight's brilliant Classic Race Teams group. I have told the members that I would build this car in December and will be finished in February but got delayed by 2 months because of my laziness. Right now my school is having a mid-term break so I got to finish it and post it here on MOCpages.
I am quite proud of it even though it lacks a bit of details compared to Malte and Detomaso's 917 which has tons of details.
Scroll down and have a look and tell me what you think.
The Porsche 917, in my opinion is the coolest classic race car ever built. It raced in the LeMans series and this version of the 917 had a 4.5 liter flat-12 producing around 600 horsepower. And it only weighed roughly 800 kilograms, which is damn light! Not only it was very very light it was also very very small.
Removable engine cover. Originally it was hinged but that made the engine cover weak so changed my mind to having it removable.
This is how it would've looked like, if it was hinged.
The H-12 engine. In real life, it's supposed to be tan, but I didn't have much useful tan bricks so I though gray should work. Also, notice the spare tire.
Even if you don't think it's quite as good as Malte's or De Tomaso's 917, this is a seriusly good MOC, with lots of nice shaping and detials, and you definitely should be proud of it, I'm sure every one on MOCpages would be if they built it. It's a really stunning MOC, great job! :D
Like this, like you, like your cars and like your pages. But I have a favor to ask. I have a contest with Smokie Smoke and ABC Builder who can make the best Big scale Sesto Elemento. Do you want to be our judge? We need a professional. Contact if you want or not

An yong ha sei yo!!! Your car mocs are UBER awesome!!!!
It's beautiful! It's so good to see all three 917s are all a bit different in terms of the style and techniques used, but all fantastic - it's exactly what the CRT group is about. A really accurate and high quality build. 5 stars, great job : )
This is fantastic Dohoon! Worth the wait! Clever part usage for the headlights and it looks just as good as the real car! Great work! Now let's go racing and blow all of the competition off the track:-)
Wow! It's been a long time, but it was worth of waiting! This is by far your best creation. The color scheme is done excellently and I love the headlights. The engine is very good too. The windshield is done very clever. Great addition to the group! 5 smilies for you! :-)
