And my wife has got me this one for Christmas

And i really like the look of this latest version....

Looking at the 1.1.... i think they did a damn fine job on this #18 Piper and Lennep version.

I know they will not be a patch on the AUTOart versions.... But i think they are giving great bang for the buck.


So guys... what are you thoughts?

Do these open up or sealed? Sorry I am not very knowledgeable on Norev, I kind of forget about them, but they make some fine models it seems, I am quite happy with the M1 I have but that is the only Norev I have. If this 917 is opening, I would be interested, I love the 917. I would love to see some more pics. :occasion14:

They look good and are reasonably priced, I may pick up a few too.

I'll look to add the #23 if they don't release the white #22 LeMans winner.

These are the UH molds, just re-liveried. Unless you're a true 917 nut (like me), they are not worth the money, IMO.
