Is Schuco Porsche 550 worth it vs Maisto's?

Schuco - http://www.diecastso...che-550-spyder/
Maisto - http://www.diecastso...c.php?f=36&t=64
The schuco is definitely better; crisper lines, sharper details, smoother paint, photoetch badges, no doglegs, better engine and exhaust. Is it worth 5 x the price of the maisto? Depends how much you like the car.
One thing the review notes is that the Schuco is smaller than the Maisto, so one of them is definitely the wrong scale which is probably the worst thing.

Porsche 550 is such a model, and wouldn't mind spending a bit more on the piece. Noticed the roll cages... looks neat. But yeah, if scale is off then that would be a true disappointment.
Makes me now wonder how the Schuco, Maisto and Autoart fair up against each other.

I don't have one as I have a Maisto race car which suits me, but if you really like it, I'd get one - but do ask the seller to inspect it thoroughly though before buying!

Correct the issues were fixed on the second batch. It's a great piece and I would recommend it but be very careful with PE badges that are very fragile and fell off easily.
