Great comparison Michael! :cheers
I think exterior-wise AUTOart is a little bit closer to reality. Although its stance is a bit too high, it has the correct front bumper. Kyosho's bumper is too low (too "fat"). Also Kyosho's rear is a little too short in my opinion and its lower front lights look atrocious. I have to say though that the Kyosho, except the steering wheel, has the better detail.
nice comparison here...
i have the Jota by Kyosho and the Miura by Autoart, i quite like the Kyosho one more cos they pack in alot of details and cost slightly less, the only reason i got the Miura by Autoart was that i got it cheap.
Great comparison. I just purchased the AUTOart Miura from Ebay, should be receiving it in a few days. I looked at a ton of pics of the 1:1 while trying to decide which to get. AUTOart's seems to be slightly more accurate, but has a little less detail. My decision was also based on the stance of the cars. Kyosho's stance has the wheels futher inside the body, while AUTOart's are further out (I found 1:1 pics that resembled both though, so this isn't really an inaccuracy, just a preference issue). I also think the AUTOart lights look a little better. Both great models though, it was a tough decision.
The only thing that really lets me down on Kyosho's model are the lower front lights. Only for that I prefer the AUTOart above the Kyosho.
If I'm not mistaken though, Kyosho will bring out a P400 version too, the less-powered version which also has different lower front lights (1 "square" fog light and 1 round side indicator at each side). It also has the 'eyelashes' around the headlights, which I like :happy
So I think I would go for the Kyosho P400 and the AUTOart SV...
BTW, the Kyosho SV has really the better wheels of the 2 this time :danbana They're stunning!
:coolpics Love your comparison pics! I have both the AUTOart Miura and the Kyosha Jota and both are very good models. The AUTOart, in my opinion, has a better exterior (except the wheels), the paint is flawless and the panel fit is slighly better. However, in terms of detail, Kyosho is far superior! It also has side windows and a working suspension. My only complaint with the Kyosho Jota is the metal strut under the front hood which keeps it from fully opening and being able to appreciate the details there. But I'm not criticizing the AUTOart, as I said, both are exelent.
