I have come close to buying the RS6 a few times now, but the front grille just looks off to me. It's a shame though as the ABT version looks great!

F**k you Photobucket.

I know it's not really the correct thread, but what has happened to the open diecast Z Models stuff?
I 'd jump at a open 288GTO, even though I bought a yellow KK recently.

Hard to believe that the Ferrari 308 GTB is now out and available that it has never been mentioned.  GT Spirit also seems to have no trace of it's existence on their web site.  I had two on preorder but cancelled.  The shape is off and its got that 'muddy' look to the moldings that a lot of their models now have.  The near Spark crispness has left their models long ago, back in the original Porsche releases(along with my GTS budget.  I only seem to buy the older mold re-paint releases now).  

It's a cheap way to get a 308 'off the shelf' now that the HWE stuff is long gone and harder to find than Kyoshos.  But damn if it isn't odd looking, and the mold quality looks like a zoomed in photo of a budget 1/43. The HWE 308 looks like an opening BBR next to this mold.

I sure as hell hope they step(or step back?) on the 288, KK's is off just enough I just can't display it, both in shape and size.  Still don't get why you just don't get the damn things RIGHT if you're going to commit to a full run of production and sales of any given item.   Especially in the modern laser-scan era.  Back in the day artist hand-sculpted blanks better than most company's CAD derived models can deliver.

Agree. The 997 LB was relatively terrible. Front fenders are not flared enough, rear fenders are uneven in height.

GT Spirit announced a grey BMW M4 CS, limited Edition. Doesn't say how many will be made.

Some nice models there. I'm still waiting for their Red 964 RS to come out. Apparently it'll be the end of the month :gaah:

:agreed:  I think if they did it in maybe three decent different colours I'd want to buy them all. Some cars are just worth it!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

I was looking forward to the yellow one :(

The wheels are a massive turnoff. I don’t like the engine and side windows, but the wheels are the most egregious offender.

Yes wheels are horrendous. What about the nose pointing down? The more you look the more you spot mistakes.

Saw this coming! This looks rubbish, simple as!
Why on earth can they not do Ferraris! Surely though could have used the Kyosho/MARK F40 as a base and built up from there?
Top Marques got very close with their version and it looks great, the wheels especially, as seen on mine below.

Took a shot ordering the 308GTB.  Some pics it looks muddy, others it looks crisp.  :gaah: No one has mentioned it nor have I seen pics from a 'real' person, so what the heck...
