Here are some period photos of Ferrari 250 GTO #3705GT.
Look around the internet to see which is the most accurate model in 1/18th scale.
The first thing I would point to is the lack of a chrome surround in the nose grill....

CMC did a pretty good job on this one. But granted there shouldn't be chrome on the front nose.

Edit: sorry, didn't see at first that you were talking about a specific chassis, I deleted my comment :)

I chose this particular car because it's arguably the most famous.

I thought I might add a little bit more.
Notice the position of the parking lights on the original car, and the size of the side marker lights.
Also the angle of the rear spoiler and the ancillary lights either side of the radiator opening.
I don't think any of the manufacturers got all of these aspects spot on.
I think a lot depends when the real car was measured and photographed - and whether it had been crash repaired or over restored.

Any BMW fans fancy trying to replicate this?
