Size comparison VS Enzo
Paint is on par with the typical Maisto. There are some noticable dust/dirt nibs in the paint . The tampos have been done very well.
I think Ricko really captured the shape of the W8. The doors , trunk,headlight covers & engine cover are plastic. There is a switch on the underside of the chassis that makes the headlight covers go up/down. They did an OK job matching up the headlight covers to line up with the car, but one is usually alighned, while the other is slightly off. There are some varying panal gaps on all of the opening features. The doors open/close very tightly and don't feel fragile like some of the other gullwinged cars(that could also be said about all of the opening parts on the car).
The interior overall has all the right buttons & switches, but only half of them have some identifying mark on them. They could have done alot better here. The seats are of a soft plastic(rubber?), and the floor is carpeted . The seat belts are also of a soft rubber. Its nice, but for $32, there should be some more details .
I don't know why Jerry Weigert(sp?, founder of Vector ) chose these wheels for this car, but they just look "cheap" . It looks as if they were made from American Racing or even Crager, not a very fashionable wheel on one of Americas first exotics . The wheels have a nice chrome finish, but I've seen more detail on Maistos wheels. The brakes are a silver painted caliper/rotor that is molded together, they are stationary. The tires have no markings & look very generic.
Engine / Chassis
The engine reminds me of some of the older UT models, decent detail, but not a seperate piece. The upper intake would make good mod material for other cars. With some painted details , it would look a little better. The chassis is very basic looking and lacking detail , looks very cheap.
No one else makes it, doubt anyone else will.
This is one of those exotics you either like it , or hate it. It was one of those failed exotics of the 80's .
I've waited for this car too long. Am I disappointed....not really. I like the car, but would've felt better paying $25 for it instead of $32. I definatly won't be selling it anytime soon though.
