    The KK-scale 365 GTC/4 looks pretty good, especially for the price…and it looks much better than the same car made by Tecnomodel. It’s a win with being a better model at a lower price.

    That said....their 275 NART Spyder is not good, it’s a lousy model. So no point in buying unless you are on a very tight collecting budget. BBR’s is far better, but of course carries a much higher price, and still has some mistakes.

    Give it approximately two years before any of us actually see this model being shipped out and available. ;)

    I have been watching KK since they started doing 1/12th scale models and have to agree they get the body shapes and sometimes the wheels better than Tecnomodel and Top Marques, although Tecnomodel builds are much better quality. KK kind of cuts costs and takes shortcuts. Whoever does KK's masters just does better work.

    I hope CMC fixes at least some details on those C-Type's before they release them. The front/nose of the body looks wrong in shape, and grill has some problems too. I know that unfortunately they won't fix those areas. Oh well.....

    I was going to buy one of the models of the Le Mans winner, but maybe not after seeing these early photos. I do realize that these are pre-production samples, but I also know as mentioned, there are some problem areas that they won't fix. I'll wait to see final production photos before I make a final vote with or without my wallet.

    Well, it's barely better. Especially around the engine and rear suspension detail (or lack thereof) but at least it will be priced accordingly. I'm tempted to buy one but am holding out for the GMP version.

    I would wait for the one from GMP. It might not be perfect, but it will be the best, and most detailed one offered. Spend the extra money; as the saying goes, 'buy the best, and you'll only cry once.'

    Pedro, I don't know if they are on schedule or not. I will be talking with them this week, and will see what the latest update is, or if there is any news.

    I'd take a 'wait and see' about anything produced by GMP: the protoype photos of the Sunoco 512 were not encouraging.

    I think it was a very early stage, pretty sure the end result will be very good, their previous efforts with Ferraris were all very good.
