It's been nearly 3 years since TSM Model announced their intention to produce several significant Porsche 917Ks in
, including the marque's first of 18 (so far) overall winners in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the iconic Gulf liveried #2 that won the 1970 24 Hours of Daytona.
A year later, the company announced a series of 1/12 scale Porsche 956 replicas from what many think was the golden age of sports car racing.
Well, we're still anxiously waiting for the 917s (the 1970 Le Mans winner is due 'soon') but the first two examples of TSM's 956 just arrived and if this is an indication of the level of quality we'll see on the 917s and others in the entire range, we're very impressed!
Both the Rothmans and NewMan Porsches have been produced in limited runs of 500 each and are priced at just $365.00 plus shipping.
To give you a true representation of the size, Jeff is 'wearing' the NewMan Porsche and we've pulled my personal 1/18 scale Minichamps version of the Rothmans 956 out of its case for the photos below.
Will they still be available after Christmas?
