This is one of my first buys here at DX, it is a somewhat small piece, but very detailed by Minichamps.

I was so lucky and happy to find this one as it is pretty availible here locally at a pretty cheap price! The only thing that I dont like about this car is the dog leg hinges. They did the rear bodywork come off so nicely, why did they resort to doglegs on the doors?

This particular piece won at Lemans in its class in 1964. Please post anymore information if you have any on this car.

Here are some new pictures I took this evening. Beware, all 100+ KB.



P.s. Which pic do you like best?

I agree, I love the 2nd photo on the first row.

Btw, how much did you get this for? I think my store still has this, but I don't know if it's worth it at the price they're asking for it...

Sorry Burn, I didn't know that you'd sent the 917 back. I knew it was missing a suspension piece and you were trying to get something worked out on it. I think I like the picture best of the frontal view kind of from above with everything opened up. . . :coolpics

I got this one for Lm25.... it think it is about 58 euros. I had to return it 4 times as it always had a defect! This last one is pretty much flawless.

If you only search looks.... wait for the red/white car, it is much nicer. Same car, but different livery

Yeah EXOTO did not help out at all. They even trew a couple of lies in between to get rid of me. Really pissed off about it.

Anyway, I agree with you, I like that pic most. The others are good but that one has a better angle in my opinion.

58 euros... that's around... $95CDN. That's around what my store is asking for...But between this and the 906, me thinks the 906 is... sexier :happy

Yeah the 906 is way nicer, I have the 904, 906 and 906LE and I can easily say that the 906 is the nicer car. This one is nice too, but if you have a choice.... go for the 906. Its an eye catcher.

Which 906 is availible there?

the store has the 906 LE (#30). But I've got so many recent Le Mans racers that I have to get (and have gotten from ebay) that I'm quite poor now...

:lol

The 906 LE is a nice car, but not as nice as the 906.... Its down to personal taste though.
