After years and years of wanting this model, I finally managed to get it. I was so close to get the minichamps version some years back, but :confused , when I saw the Exoto one, I had no more thinking to do. That will be my holy grail.

I went under a whole lot of problems to get this one, and I am utterly satisfied by it. It was a first for many things, first time I spent so much, first time I bought from the net, first time I used a Visa etc etc....

I was worried about it for so long... now, it finally arrived....

First, some pics of the other model that arrived today, a minichamps 906LE, winner of its category at Lemans in 1966. Beautiful car and excellent level of detail for its price.

Porsche 906LE






And now some pics of the Can-am killer from EXOTO.

Porsche 917/30! :woohoo :woohoo :yahoo :woohoo :woohoo






I am truely satisfied with these purchases as well as with the service from Modelissimo, a site that I will always recommend.

What ya think??

:eek:k

Sorry for the crappy pics, I am still admiring the 917/30 to set correctly my cam :giggle

Good Grief!!! I really like those, especially the 906. I, personally, like the short tail version better, but the one you have there is sweet! The 917 has detail galore doesn't it? I'd be happy with them too. Great catch, and I found nothing wrong with the photography at all. . .

Model par excellence. Absolutely breathtaking detail on the engine. Fantastic addition Burn. Congratulations on finding your Holy Grail. I have a feeling you will be worshipping it everyday.

Wow......I knew that Sunoco 917 was nice , but it looks amazing in those pics .

Is the engine cover on your 906 badly fitting or just not seated correctly ?
Personally I prefer the short tail 906 but I will be adding that one too .

Congrats on your new additions .

(Told you Modelissimo were great sellers )

Thanks!

It is really a great piece, the detail on that 917/30 is unbelieveable. Just out of this world. Probably the most detailed 1:18 diecast ever made.

winstoncds, you are right, I have already looked at it about 30 zillion times! :lol

onoista.... Just two words.... Unearthly Great! :giggle

Cobalt, Thanks! The 906 LE is a nice piece, but I agree with you that the short one is better looking. However, when I compared the two, The LE has a better finish than the short one.

Angelrott V6, the 906LE pictured has a right fitting engine cover, just didn't notice when I took the picture.

Thanks!

I didn't loose much as I phoned the dispatching point and I told them to not send any items by post. Just send a note that some items have arrived and I would go myself.

Unfortuneately, I think it would have been better to not go to the university.... after 4 good results.... I got an F in macroeconomics... :cry
