Porsche "Salzburg" 917
Finally I get to post my 1971 Le Mans winning Porsche 917 which has been gathering dust for over a month. Built to go with my Mercedes Transporter which are both built for Ape Fights brilliant Classic Race Teams Group.
About this creation
I tried to make this look as close to the original car as possible which unfortunately meant having to sacrifice functionality so not many opening wonders to bee seen here. But i hope you'll find some nifty details to comment on :-)

I have ordered decals for this, my next project, the Sunoco 917/30 and my McLaren F1 car and i will post them all together once they are applied.

I'll let the photos do the talking here because i'm using MortalSwordsmans computer as mine has died :-(





















































Hope you like it as much as i do, it looks great inside the transpoter and i only have to build two more cars to fill it :-)

Ho Ho Happy Christmas to one and all!

The porsche 917 was on my list of great vehicles of all time with the lancia stratos, the f40, the porsche 959, the SLK AMG Black series the one Jeramy Clarkson owns. you are a amazing and talented builder. I like to talk to people who get into the groove and feel of a creative leap with bricks. you rock. : )

It's superb display of building skills, really no weak points. I love the way you used rubbers. Is the Mclaren F1 project still alive?

You're wrong! You need 1 more. Actually, I'd love to post my 458 now, but I'm going to participate in a contest, and that's why I can't post it until the results are out (they don't want it to be found on the Internet or you could've stole the photos. ~LB Jr.

Wonderful car! The shape is great. My favorite details are the dashboard and the engine.

  December 28, 2011
Wow, this is seriously awesome! The use of those thin tires for the headlamp surrounds and windscreen is inspired. And the level of detail on the engine and paint job are quite something. I think you're giving Firas Abu-Jaber a run for his money with these, looking forward to seeing the full set!

I'm not much of a car fan, but this is amazing! The amount of detail is stunning, and every pieces must have been placed with an utmost of care. The SNOT and technique-ery is brilliant, and creative parts usage abounds. Great work!

Quoting Joost Cumps Joe is right he let you use his computer to post this BEAUTY!!! The fuel-fill cap! The dashbord! The engine! I am not sure what part I like more then all other. Oh my, do your skills quadratate (is that a word?) by every moc you post?
Haha thanks Joost but no my skills don't quadratate they quadruple ;-)

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Haha this definitely has comedy factor. I'd like to try something like this but I'm not sure I'd have the patience. And thanks for your comments on my Porsche :-) Happy Christmas to the LB family!
Yes, it does require lots of patience! The walking technique that my brother and I currently use is a often called a 5-step walk cycle. The easiest animation to see this that I've made is the test #3 - 4th animation. I suggest doing tests like we've done, then do more complicated ones as your skill in animation improves. And as far as editing, it can be a pain, so right now we don't have any sound for our videos (it makes editing a million times harder). For regular walking, each frame is 0.1 second. I'd love to see a animation from you and Mortal. BTW, search "MICHAELHICKOXFilms" on YouTube - he's a REAL master at Lego animations!

Quoting Alex Wright Wow that is terrifically detailed and very ingenuitive, loving all the little clever parts. For the next two cars, why not do the blue salzburg, and the green one-they would be fitting with the salzburg transporter, but if you want different ones, why not try the "pink pig" and maybe the flat-16 porsche concept. food for thought...
Thanks Alex for you nice comments, do you know how much pink I'd have to bug to build the pig? Nice idea but it's not going to happen I'm affraid. I already have one Porsche in mind, the 908/2 Spyder. I would certainly enjoy building that flat 16 engine but the car is a bit similar to the 908 Spyder.

Quoting Rolands Kirpis Escellent model. Full of details. That engine... wow... that's fantastic. So acurate (I have no idea how the real one looks like) :)

Haha, muchos dankes Malte! Very different to yours but they are both beautifully ravishing! I have another Porsche to post (maybe tomorrow) did you spot it? And of course you can use the dashboard detail! And no not the GTR, the MP4/5 which is my longest surviving MOC.

@ Malte - hahaha it is confusing there are too many excellent Porsches. What a minute can you have too many Porches? and what do you call a group of Porsches. Stop typing Porsches Joe. Hello whats that poking out of the Transporter? Not another Porsche!!! :)

@Nick Barrett: yes - I build other brands... time to think... LAMBORGHINI (Firas) or FERRARI (Sven Bode & Jens Matuschek) or BELGIUM-Cars (Mattyy 666) or MOVIE-Cars (Patrick L.)... nooooo :-)

Wow, that's sooo cool! It's great to see it compared to Malte's one: Same model, same scale, but so different building techniques. Your style is more conventional but the result is equally amazing. And there are so many details to discover, especially the interior and the engine compartment. But I have to say, my favourite part is the windshield. Only using one tube you managed to form the characteristic outlines of the windshield so well. Oh and the car, it fits so well into the transporter. Great job! :-))

Woo! Seen the teaser pics, now time for the real thing : ) Amazing work; it's very accurate astheically, and you've worked out some genius solutions too, the cockpit window and dashboard dials being my favourites (I think we'll see these cropping up in a few places now!). The engine though, is my personal highlight. 5 stars, and an extra one for the final shot with it in the back of the Mercedes, so 6/5 : )

Wow Tomaso, another wonderfully smooth and accurate creation from you. This group just keeps getting better and better. I love the windscreen and head light technique, in fact I love the whole thing. The engine is just amazing. Oh, It looks like you have left your photos on my desktop. Mmm I might post my own version of this car soon mwahahahaha!!! ;)

Woah! Very smooth and impressive! Also goes great with your transporter. Great work with all those details and the engine! PS: That is one lucky technic fig.
