    Nice, but looks like the rear body panel does not fit well.

    I'm am sure with the white metal frame a lot of adjusting will be needed, or you could buy the Monaco or Italian GP versions wich have no bodywork in that area.

    Profil 24Ferrari 250LM 1/12th at Retromobile 2018 in Paris.. The long nose looks pretty good but the short nose kind of looks off a little.

    He did a set for the Hiro 1/12th 312PB also. Very nice stuff.

    It would be great if the 935 K2 was in bigger scale.

    More Profil 24 Ferrari 250LM 1/12th photos. I like the long nose, but its hard to tell with the wide angle lens. I also bought the Maserati 151 they made in 1/12th and I figured out where the error was made on the body. The front fender does not come back enough and also the windshield is to rounded on top of the window frame area. If you buy either of the 1/12th Profil 24 kits use the Hiro wire wheels in place of the kit wires. Hiro wires are around $125.00-$150.00 US.

    Well these look very interesting, and I completely agree that it is really impossible to judge with the way they shot these photos. Wide angle lens + odd angles of the photos + not great lighting = maybe good, maybe not so good?

    On another note....I had been in contact with them long before Retromobile, and proposed a deal which was that in addition to their making and selling these 250 LM kits, that they would also make limited built models of the 250 LM's just for my company, which I would market and sell..... Well I was surprised to see on their web site today that for just these 1:12th 250 LM's ...that in addition to the kits...they are now going to offer them as limited built editions..... So much for ethics (read lack of ethics). I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't for the fact that I had proposed this idea to them, and they had replied favorably about us working together, etc. Oh well, that's all part of the model business - good and bad.

    As far as I can remember Profil24 have always offered built versions of all of their kits

    Several people think the 1/12th picture is of a Hiro Porsche 917/30. We will see. I would really like a 917/10 in 1/24th or 1/12th.

    Any word on if Profil24 plans to reissue the 312P? I missed the first run. Anyone know of one for sale?

    Nice detail set and I assume it will make for a nice model. But is the 488 GTE that compelling a car?
