Far enough along to bring this over from the Porsche thread. Alan Hamilton’s 906 Spyder . SW brass and wire chassis with NSR 21.5K Shark. Super Shells body.
Keep us posted on your progress, too. What kind of running gear are you planning?
There are quite a few photos on Facebook of his various Porsche racing cars, including photos on the street of a 906 or 908 and the 917/10 at the “Seaforth GP” which I think was a demonstration/untimed hillclimb of many amazing racing cars in the hills of Seaforth NSW, Australia. Most of them can be found in the “old motor racing photos - Australia” group.Slotspeed, thanks for the info. Pretty much what I found out. I especially liked the story of getting a street permit for the Can-Am 917/10 during the week of the Australian GP and auctioning off rides to a cafe.

Just have to mount the body and figure out what to do with the headlights. The recess in the shell doesn’t have enough vertical face to mount lenses in the correct position. I’ll have to stew on this for a while.
