The 1/24th Testors 917 is the Heller kit. Done in the 1971 Martini livery. Was available in the 80's as a Union kit. Heller also did the 1970 LM winner and a Gulf livery version. Pretty sure the Testors boxing was before the Fujimi 917 versions were released. There were a lot of different Fujimi kits reboxed as Testors though.

These guys  raised the bar for all other manufacturers - and no others have reached it yet. SWS and HK are close.

Moebius for automotive kits.

The 6.2l LT1 in the 2014 vette is 450hp and runs at least 28mpg all day long. No problem with meeting fuel economy or emission standards. No EGR, no air injection, no fancy converters. Direct Injection has had little improvement in the fuel efficiency or emissions output. Not sure who or where the articles source came from, but EPA and CAFE are no legit reasons for dropping V8's in the near future.
