Re: Zakspeed Turbo Capri 1/12 Scratch

Oh Christian, those babies sure came out awesome. The Capri is not my cup of tea, but the model is perfect. And that 917/10 wow. Looking at the before and after screens I have to say "2k spatula" wasdattdenn (whatisit)? but the results surely speak for themselves. Now I really want you to ...

Re: Re-release Scale Motorsport Porsche 935 1/12 set

What it comes down to - as always - is are you willing to pay that for the parts you get. If you do, it's not absurd. I wouldn't, but I bought other stuff where I can see people thinking the same thing "absurd" - so who am I to judge? Limited edition s also something that triggers people o...

Re: GT40 lovers, start your drooling

MoFo, regarding the headlight shape, see my link in the post above - it takes you too bookface, but you should be able to see it even when not logged in or registered there. In top view you can see the difference in the shape of those between the two kits. Wim, from that link you also get a photo co...

Re: GT40 lovers, start your drooling

(are the headlights *really* that different, or is it just the openings under the nose on the Meng kit that make them seem more different?) To answer the main part of your question, I have no idea what Meng's approach is, but I'm fairly certain that Trumpeter regularly base their kit design off a s...

Re: GT40 lovers, start your drooling

Some comparsion shots from my both gt40 kits. Overall comparsion Trumpeter (bottom) vs. Meng (top) https://www.scaleautofactory.com/gt40_meng/gt40_011.jpg Mengs is a bit shorter as the trumpter.

Re: To heck with MFH. THIS is the Alfa kit *I* want!

Well pre-Brexit, you could, I believe, get a car registered here if had been registered and road legal in country of the EU - which the UK was at that time. Today you would not be able to legally drive this car on the road unless you would have it individually checked and approved. And that would be...

Re: GT40 lovers, start your drooling

Thanks Michael for your "review". I agree with the above comments, and I'm not a rivet counter either. We wouldn't have aftermarket accessories if the kits were all perfect. :lol: Nice to hear from someone with the kit in hand before opening the wallet and releasing the moths. The only Me...
