In the words of Bugs Bunny, Thats all Folks, well at least my Le Mans winners anyway.

Please keep your inputs coming and show us what you have.

I want to thank all the contributors, viewers, and lovers.

Carving from wood - this is real modeling, Gary - what i have done is just assembling factory-made parts.

You have shown us a lot of outstanding models, Gary - wish I could contribute more (have 2 more LeMans winners, but not built by myself, and some yet unbuilts in my stash) - the 1949 Barchetta is also excellent.

Gary....It was a fun post.  I had a few more to post but they were already done.  And in going through my stash I found even more I haven't done yet. And I am really envious of your Ferrari winners. I have a couple  but  but there are gaps that you have filled with your hand carved ones.  That  was  above my talent skills.

Here are two more Le Mans winners - both from Le Mans miniatures - not built by myself, but factory-built. An online shop had these on sale for a reasonable price (about half the price of the resin kit), so I went for it:

The 1972 winning Matra MS 670, driven by Henri Pescarolo/Graham Hill:

and 20 years later (1992). the Peugeot 905 Evo 1 Bis, driven by Yannick Dalmas/Derek Warwick/Mark Blundell:

I could never have built these two so well .

Very impressive collection, Tom -  the Peugeot  905 seems to be the heavily reworked Heller Kit which has been reissued by Airfix and Gunze-Sangyo. Am I right?

Thanks Helmut.

 

You are correct, this is the Heller kit - the single worst kit I have ever put together.

I can imagine that - I had this one, too. After checking the kit contents, I sold it off again.

Tom, welcome to this group of LM addicts.  Your collection is outstanding especially for actually building the Heller 905 Evo.  I started one and never finished it.  Recently bought a Hachette diecast instead.  Your Jules 936 is very interesting too and your stash looks pretty familiar.

Thanks Gary. Happy to be part of this group of addicts! (Don't ask me about my World Rally Car habit!)

As we know, some of these Le Mans winners in 1:24 are easy to come by, some are not, and many are simply not available in this scale. I think its possible to collect every winner in diecast in 1:43rd, but that's just not as much fun!  Speaking of which, the 905 Evo is not for beginners, or intermediates, or anyone who wants to retain their sanity.

The 936 was pretty straightforward, just converting to the right decals. Actually the livery is very simple, modelers could easily make the decals themselves. Here is the beginning...

Hi Helmut,
could you tell me the store where you bought these two models?
Thanks,

Let’s see, this qualifies as a LM winner. Ford GT 1969. This is a big one. DeAgostini 1/8 scale. I have a few lm winner kits in 1/25-24, but never got around to build them. Love the builds here. All of them are great!

Thank you for sharing this with us Bruce.  I need to go back to your WIP thread to see how it really went together.  It is hard to appreciate the size without other objects for comparison.  The details are pretty amazing.
