Cannot see much, but the door gaps are a wee bit large for 1/8 scale and the fact that this probably cost about 8 large.

Hi Evil Z06 it is about 58.8cm long

Anyone know if the window on the engine hood can be opened?
I read from the other blog that it could be opened . But the instructional manual has not mentioned about this at all.

My first Amalgam 1/8!
I think their paint finishing quality way better than my other pocher Ferrari F40 in comparison.

That's not a very fair comparison. The Amalgam is what 2015/16? The F40 must be from early 90's. A lot has improved in 20+ years.

The little surprise of this Amalgam 1/8 LaFerrari is ...

The Glass cover on the engine hood can also be opened independently from the hood.

I wondered why the instruction manual and also none of the promo photos shown it. Surprise factor for customer?
