This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated but it does not include glue or paints, which can also be purchased separately at SpotModel!.
Scale kit based on the Porsche 917K used by the Porsche KG Salzburg team during the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the team achieved victory with the vehicle painted in red, and in the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen of the same year, where they also reached first place, but on this occasion with the vehicle painted in blue. A complete and detailed kit that includes white metal parts, resin parts, photo-etched parts, vacuum formed parts, turned metal parts, rubber tires, decals, etc. Once assembled, the model allows you to remove the front and rear hoods, as well as the doors, leaving the complete interior and mechanical parts visible.

Additional details for the Porsche 917K car scale model kit:

The 1970 Le Mans race was a race of attrition. Only 7 of the 51 participants reached the finish line. Five of the seven registered Porsche 917s retired, but the remaining two crossed the finish line first and second. The guys from Zuffenhausen finally got their long-awaited win on the Sarthe circuit. The winners: Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood. They started the race conservatively, successfully surviving heavy rain and other adversity and won by a five-lap margin over Gerard Larrousse and Willi Kauhsen.

As a curiosity, after 27 years as a Porsche driver, and while they were traveling for his participation in Le Mans, Hans Herrmann promised his wife that he would retire if he won... and at the end of the race he kept his word. He then confessed that he had started thinking about withdrawal some time ago. "It was clear to me that I would retire at the end of 1970, but I had not told anyone."
