    Unbelievable … they charge you like a real car, but they can’t make the front hood openable.

    I will choose GMP 1/12 products

    At these prices, I expect perfection and accuracy – both are missing. Most immediately noticeable and the first big miss in lack of accuracy are the rear fenders around the tires, which are the wrong shape.

    The GMP while not perfect, and also incorrect in a few areas is overall more accurate and certainly a better value.

    GMP??!!!??? The nose of the car is horribly wrong, it’s just a big toy– reserve judgment until you see the actual final production is presented.

    You want a 1/8 scale GT40 MKI? Just build the DeAgostini 1969 version of the GT40, it’s a month per month subscription and you’ll have one that opens up 360 with lights that light and sound. For a lot less dough, and you’ll be able to say you put it together.

    The GMP always gave me the impression that someone recreated the car strictly from memory. They remembered the angles but not so much the bulk. Overall,pretty bad though Ive seen alot worse. I dont think anyone has ever gotten it totally right though. I keep wondering why they just dont take laser measurements of the real cars and be done with it. Id rather have it totally accurate in shape than have an artistic interpretation or just a bad mistake.
