Hi all - Sadly I don't have time to copy/paste/formatting my full reviews onto here anymore. So instead of posting the whole lot here I will post a few pics and a very brief overview.

You can, of course, read the entire history of the R8 LMX and the full review in detail on my website here (and I hope you will do so!):

  • The model is DNA Collectibles' first model with the use of carbon fibre and it looks pretty good!
  • The interior detail is again way up there with models costing twice as much - especially the dials and buttons.
  • The main aspect of the R8 LMX was the introduction of laser headlights - the bulb definition is good on the model, but it lacks the crystal effect of the 1:1. On the shelf they look fine though.

It looks decent and the brake rotor job is a big let down. Those oversized drilled holes and the overall carbon ceramic effect looks cheap. I am happy with my Frontiart(not the same car specs but its very similar).
