That's pretty cool! We didn't get it in White over here. I have one in White with Gold wheels, made by NYK Auto Motion Collectables - if I didn't, I'd be getting one of these.

I think the shape of it from the door mirrors above is slightly wrong, like it was on the E36 Sedan. But it's still quite cool. I might get one though. I'm not the biggest fan of it, but I don't have one.

Nice timing! (not).
If anyone has a good reason why they would opt for this rather than wait for the Norev - I'd be interested to hear it.
Even if it took a year after the Otto release for the Norev to arrive, I would wait.
I am very happy with most of my Otto models, but on this occasion my money goes elsewhere......

I'll get Otto over Norev everyday. Norev often looks and feel cheap, toy-like. They feel like plastic and the paint is not all that great. Otto makes a better model, in my opinion.

But if the similar Norev has 6 opening parts, the Otto loses out. In my opinion ;)

Norev seem to be putting out a lot of sealed models now though :cautious: If Norev's opened, yep I'd go for that one, sealed, I'll take the OttO Mobile one.

My most recent Norev - a black W115 - has a perfectly good paint finish.
I have quite a few models by them, and I would only fault a yellow Beetle from those.
On the other hand, some of my Otto models are showing a degree of sagging in the clear sections.
As for the 190E above, the whole front end of the cabin looks off to me.

If open models is the determining factor, sure. But, most open models don't look as good as a sealed resin model. Resin just gets the details better, more often than not.

Now on that part I completely disagree with you. But let's save that discussion for another topic :)

This all assumes the model is accurate, no matter the material.
Otto had to withdraw an Alpine A310 (IIRC) because the shape was laughably bad.
And yet again I have to point to the way 'A' pillars are often too thick, leading to oddly shaped windscreens.
Since this is what is presented to me when looking at my models in display cases, it sticks out like a sore thumb.
