A limited production example of the 1:8 scale Porsche 917K (1971) Le Mans Winner – Martini Livery in full Race Weathered trim will be released by Amalgam. The model does look brilliant with the weathering effects and race-damaged areas. Full access is part of the experience too. Amalgam claims 4000 hours of R&D time and about 450 hours to hand-build, this includes the weathering. Seems Amalgam isn’t immune to price increases either, this example is set you back a whopping $19,000+ US.
Hm, 4000 hrs of research and took me one second to detect a flaw: hood should not “flare” into side panel but instead be wider.
Look at Sparks 1:18 how to model the bodywork correctly.
