DreamPower New 1:18 & 1:6 Announcements

New to the scene is the DreamPower brand. Recent releases of the same marques in a sealed application have been turning heads with their attention to detail and overall presentation. Well, the team has re-focus the previous releases now in fully open examples. We share the 1:6 and 1:18 Ford GT40 MK2 and the 1:18 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. We believe the exterior material is an in-house composite. No word on the complete colour palette at this time. Scheduling for release is targeted at Q3 2019.

Product# TBD

    Wonder why they chose 1:6th scale for the Mark II??? Most high end pieces are 1:8th scale.

    Someone needs to tell DREAMPOWER that the Ford GT Mark II did NOT HAVE AN AUXILIARY ELECTRIC FAN!! These people in CHINA look at photos taken TODAY and have NO IDEA what is correct for 1966 and what has been added since.. Why would anyone buy this.. other than size??

      Good catch on the aux fans! I tried googling to see where they got such an idea, but nothing popped up. That’s a huge miss. On the plus side , using composite to make a typical diecast with opening parts seems like a great idea. It’s not a match for a CMC or Exoto, but should shake up the Resin manufacturers.

    The seats on the Mk II are not correct. Also, the rear engine cover was not open under the glass.

    I wonder why the Mercedes 300 SL shape is so difficult to model. This Dreampower version’s tail is too short/stubby, the “eyebrow” arch over the rear wheel is a tiny bit too large and the angle is too severe, and the “eyebrow” over the front wheel is too large. It’s amazing that no one seems able to model this car correctly.

    • Robert Johnson says:

      The 300SL body (the coupe) is a series of complex curves.. much like an early Porsche 911.. as such, it is very hard to capture effectively.. The Series One Ferrari 250 GTO is the same.. ONLY the Kyosho replica captures the upper fender line
      with the very subtle reverse sweep that BBR and Amalgam have missed completely!

  5. MLB says:

    NOT impressed. Big models with many flaws. Doesn’t anyone at these companies know how to do proper research or contact someone who does??

    1:6 scale is too big….even for most collectors who spend many thousands on one model…. and at that point, and size….you had better make sure that what is being made is correct, which these samples clearly show that even the final product will be flawed and wrong. What waste of material.
