Anyone ever heard of that model company before?
Link: http://www.dreampower-collections.com/

I just came across them on CLDC, never heard of them before, never seen any models in the flesh but boy do their GT40s look incredible :drool5: I'm blown away by the details, but +$500.- for 1/18 resine? :dunno:

I remember seeing these when they were first announced a while ago - probably on CLDC's Facebook page actually.
They are super expensive but look very well detailed! I think they're quite highly limited in numbers as well??
I can't say I've seen anyone on any forums or Facebook groups post that they've actually bought one, though :dunno:

CLDC have a Black Friday Deal coming up. Depending on if they put that one on sale, and by how much - I might just be tempted... But I'm certainly not spending anywhere near that much that's asked regularly. However, it looks amazing and I'm in the market for a high-quality GT40. I have my eyes on a few others as well and will go the way of the best deal that's coming up.

I was really interested but finally i don't like the final product. The Weber carbs are nice but the radiators on each side of the engine... WTF ???
And most importantly the proportions are not perfect ( i'm almost sure they scanned a GT40 replica and not a real one )

If you want a nice GT40 buy an Exoto MKII for the details or a Spark MKI because the shape of the body is 98% perfect
I'm currently upgrading 2 resin GT40, a Spark and a GT Spirit, they are rather easy to open and modify, and a lot cheaper

Thanks a lot for your much appreciated and valuable feedback. As there was no deal on them, I didn't get the Dreampower one - too expensive! Especially now after your further information; I'm newly into the GT40s... I've been looking at Exoto models, but can't find the number / color scheme I like for a decent price. But I'll keep looking then. Are you going to showcase your work on the GT40s?
