Another variant of the CMC 1:18 Ferrari 275 GTB/C series is the item presented here, welcome the Ferrari 275 GTB/C Chassis #09057 in pictorial form.  The owner, Mr. Vincent Gaye was actually truly instrumental in the R&D period.  And the results are pretty good.  Love the interior fine-tuning here!

    I don’t know about the interior, but the rear window frame really arouses “admiration.” For the money that collectors pay “SMS”, one could try hard.

    Again, not something I’d spend money on. The rear window looks like a hatchback. The interior looks awful. The “leather” grain is way over scale, the gearshift is underscale, the steering wheel looks awful and why can’t they paint the handles and nozzles on the fire extinguisher silver, like the real thing? Sometimes CMC is a little too determined to use close to authentic materials when that just doesn’t work.

      Yes. Thank you. I see no reason to use real materials if it doesn’t look real in that scale. The leather grain is one of the worst offenders imo.

    I suppose CMC have their own niche. It seems like they’re not going for a scale accurate exact replkica of the original car, something that with good photo technique could pass for the real car. Instead it feels like they’re trying to give a flavour of the real car in terms of complexity of build and richness of materials used. In a way it could be considered a charichature of both the real car and the concept of a scale replica.
    On that respect it may not be all that relevant that real leather is inevitably out of scale in a model car, and the same goes for their overly complicated windows trim and their signature wire wheels, much like on a usually cheaper way it’s not perhaps so relevanti that Autoart puts tiny, but terribly out of scale, screws on some visibile parts of their model if it is to signify something like:” look we didn’t just glue these pieces together, we actually used some very tiny screws, and someone actually had to screw them in place”.

      Spot on my friend. CMC does it for the luxury, not the accuracy. Unfortunately with this one the lack of accuracy makes the luxury hard to appreciate. I’m a CMC apologist, but this is one I’m going to pass on.

    Not impressed. CMC still sticks with using materials that are way out of scale, and look heavy handed, plus there are always some fit problems, and wrong finishes on some parts. Also some over sized and under sized pieces, and some poorly finished parts…always. It’s disappointing that they don’t understand about improving these areas which they should and could do. Prices go up, but the quality/value does not. I know there are plenty of CMC enthusiasts, and I expect they’ll be happy, and that these models will sell well for CMC…BUT… these models still do not qualify as *truly* great high quality models or high end. I won’t be buying or recommending their 275 GTB/C models.

    It’s strange nobody has commented anything about the hood problem. The more versions I’m seeing the more confirms that the hood does not fit propertly. As yo can see It has a bigger gap near the windshield. It’s like the plate used is too thick.

    Although I like it very much, the price is very expensive.
