Well I think they're great, the detail is very good & they display excellently. I've got 2 factory issues & made 3 custom versions from their kits, very addictive & still would buy more. As with most GMP/ACME there can be quality control issues but I've not found anything wrong with mine.

Here's a few photos of mine to wet your appetite...

Trademarquemodels are your cheapest bet in the u.k, that's where I get mine.

They are nice models, I have a few too (mine are all standard releases) I like the 32 with the fenders too.

They've stopped making the three window ones though, only five now.

If you see something you like on Trademarque's website & it says they are sold out drop them an email, they might have it. Not all stuff gets put on there as they sell on there & ebay etc.

F**k you Photobucket.

It was Trademarquemodels (it has changed since & I can't remember it)  but they only list a few things at a time. So I'd go with emailing them.

F**k you Photobucket.

Your kit ones are very nice - would you mind sharing more large pics of them?

I have two kits sitting around, one 3-window and one roadster.  Also have a 5-window on the way once they're ready to ship.

I thought you might have some you'd already taken...I was just looking for some more detailed shots of the engines or interiors maybe.

By the way, have you checked out ACME's site recently?  They have bomber seats for the '32 cars, as well as some 1:18 engines and wheel/tire sets which should work on them.  I bought a blown hemi and some drag tires to use on one of mine, it looked like it should fit just fine.  I'll have to hack off a transmission from one of the kit engines as well as the mounts, but otherwise no problem.
