Congrats, Simon, to this amazing model - AUTOart at it's best!!! :occasion14:
Amazing details shown by your crisp close ups!
Personally I do prefer the 1998 GT1 because of its curvy body lines but I have to admit that my poor Maisto can't compare to this in terms of quaity and detailing...

I prefer this earlier version of the GT1 (it still looks a BIT like a 911! :nice: ) and I have one in a box that arrived from CK yesterday, but I've not got around to looking in it yet!

Now I've seen your photos, I don't need to - They're better than my eyesight! :smile:

It's a lovely model, I was pleasantly surprised by it.  Really nice photos here, you've captured the details very well.

I don't think the Maisto is too bad either, although I admit I've only seen it in photos - quite keen to get one now as I bought this one cheap from CK and already had the UT 993 version.

Did AUTOart produce the 1996 version?
It was somewhat more colourful.....

No, just UT. It's not bad for its age but no comparison to this AUTOart version:

(Just realised Anson also made the 993 version, but theirs wasn't as good as UT)

Absolutely awesome, one of the most, if not the most detailed Le Mans racer model after 1995.
Does your model have any paint / livery problem from CK?
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.

If you are asking me, the answer is no - no paint issues.
There was some pva glue residue where repairs had been made, but this was easily removed with a damp cloth.
I am more than happy with what I got for the price I paid.

Thank you, I was very pleased with it, I definitely need to get a UT 993 version now

Thank you, no, mine came with no paint or livery problems, only thing 'wrong' with it was the removable body panels and certificate where a little dirty

I just received mine, unfortunately covered in some mold.

Also I notice that the strings in the engine compartment next to the light blue line are of bronze color. Like the picture below. Your strings are black?!

No, that's an expression that makes no sense in English English! :giggle:

What does 'go ham' mean?

Just took a look at mine - It's a great model, but sadly mine has paint rash on the bonnet.

I'll have a go at tidying it up using some of the tips here, but while it's a shame, it's not enough for me to reject the model for the price I paid.

I now know I've been very lucky as I've never seen paint rash before!
