Thanks Nick,this Chiron has to be their best colour combination and it saves this from being a run of the mill model and quite unique to have. I love the wheels on this model too. As for the Kengfai i had them side by side as they came on the same day and after looking at the KF,the AUTOart looked and felt out of place at the side of it. Of course the feeling is different when they are both side by side in front of you instead of in photos and that's when you can tell who the future King will be,if you know what i mean. :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:
Yes I know what you mean! :yahoo: I don't have a 1/12 model, but I can imagine that the details of the car are more visible than on a 1/18. If I see the pictures they both look very detailed. I'm not that 'in to' Autoart, but I don't have the older (read better) Autoarts, so I can't compare. But definitely two beautiful adds! :10:   Curious what the next one will be! :occasion14:

Congrats on the Bugatti Chiron, it is a stunning spec.
I hope that someone are going to produce Manny Koshbin´s Hermes edition of the Chiron.

It’s a pity what AUTOart is doing but this grey Chiron looks sooo cool!!
I wouldn’t care too much about some poor detailing...
Congrats Darren!! :yahoo:

Thanks Dirk,it is a very nice looking model and has some excellent detail but in a few areas it is let down quality wise and it feels like a cheap RC car because it is light,if you can get over that then it's not bad at all. It displays Beautifully though. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:

Up next is one that i have been waiting for a long time,so give a round of applause to the BBR 1/12, 2018 McLaren Senna in Azure Blue. This is another Stunning model by the BBR team and it is so sharp and clean looking with Excellent detail,i love it. I am a bigger fan of BBR's 1/12 models with every purchase keep them coming .

Thanks Nick,i do like this a lot,was looking at the Orange 1/12 version too but i think the blue is a better colour for this model,besides got lots to get on the list so another distraction is not a good thing. :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:

BBR is expensive, but you get top quality for the money. I like it in this color too, looks perfect. :rock: :occasion14:

Thanks Roman,i couldn't have said it better. What they are making at the moment has improved since i first started buying them a few years ago but the price has risen too. This is a super looking model up close and in front of you,like i say they have sucked me in with their latest 1/12 Models. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:

Congrats on a stunning model.
It looks great in that blue color and the carbon fibre work is really nice as expected from BBR.
I might not be a big fan of the design of this car but for some reason it is interesting.
I will most likely add it to my collection but i have not decided if i go with AUTOart or BBR.

Darren, I REALLY like that Senna Model! The real car has grown on me more than I thought that it would :eusa_clap:  
Also, that Maserati is just sublime!! :drool5:  Models like this make it so enticing for all of us collectors, in hope that all makers will eventually reach the level and quality of miniature craftsmanship! CHEERS! :occasion14:

Make the Best Out of Life!

Thanks David, i feel exactly the same over the Senna, it is a car that grows on you over time. When i ordered it i wasn't overly keen on the look of it but in the time it took to come and to see it up close this is a Amazing looking model. The 300S is such a detailed model it is a fantastic piece to have in any collection. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:
