Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Porsche 917/20 Interserie 1975 Vaillant Alternative version MIN437736103 Weisburg Kelleners Officially only one 917/20 was built, the famous ‘Pink Pig’ Le Mans car, but the number is also used to describe 917/30 #001 which was an interim car looking much like a 917/10 but using mechanical parts from the 917/30. The car had a busy competition life, first with Vic Elford, then Helmut Kelleners and finally Herbert Muller. Here we see the car in the orange and blue of Felder Racing/Weisburg tools as Kelleners drove to fifth at Hockenheim in 1973 and then for its last hurrah at the same circuit, where Muller won the opening Interserie race of the 1975 season, this time wearing the striking colours of Vaillant. Both liveries are well replicated and the models beautifully finished, the Kelleners car having various strips of decal to replicate race tape holding panels closed and the Muller version showing some particularly vivid colours. Numbers are very limited on both, with just 250 and 300 examples respectively.
One of the market leaders in die-cast models. Good shapes, excellent paint and decoration. 1:43rds are kerbside while 1:18ths usually have plenty of opening parts and detail. Also an increasing number of 1:43 resincast models. Made in China.
