Thanks Guys,it was the livery that swayed it for me having seen the 1/18 pink pig's livery,its so different to see. Coming from Spark it has very nice detail to it as well.

Up next is such a Fantastic looking model. It's the Dealer Edition(GT Spirit,i am told) BMW D E 1/12 2019 BMW I8 Roadster in Orange/Black. This is a lot better than i expected with no flaws to the model although i did buy it reduced price as it has a cracked clear cover,i can live with that. This is a very sharp looking model and i am glad i added this to my collection. It also came with a certificate,English on one side and German on the other,very nicely made too along with a stamped on box BMW logo. The case came wrapped in a black cloth like you get from BBR ? A really nice model worth getting.

Neat car, not sure if I'm sold on the colour. One a side note, I recently signed up to test drive a series of exotics here, one car on the list is BMW I8. Looking for to the drive

Thanks,i think this is the only colour they make it in but in real life it looks nicer than the photos suggest. As this is the only one i know in 1/12 i am happy to have it join my collection.
You will have to let us know how you get on with such a memorable experience driving real exotic motors. :okay: :beer:

A new one today that i just had to add as it's the colour that sold it to me. I also have this in Blue but the colour on this is Amazing. It's the GT Spirit 1/12 1996 911(993)RWB in Candy Red. I saw a few of these sold recently for very little but wasn't really interested as i already had the Blue version until a photo caught my eye and the rest is for all to see. I am really happy with this model as it was a Great price for such a nice piece of 1/12 Art. On some photos it looks Orange but that's the reflection of the Sun,the real colour is with all the flakes in it but a real Burning red,if you know what i mean.

It's a Great looker but it's the colour for me that makes this Beauty,really Stunning burning Red if you catch it in the right light. the camera can't quite catch it unfortunately. And what a Great achievement to have met a tuning Master,congratulations on a once in a life time meet. :okay: :okay: :okay: :okay: :okay:

It was exciting. Saw him build a gorgeous 964 Speedster locally and he signed one of my models too. Here are some pics if interested. Cheers

Up next is a Fantastic model,i would say Top Marques finest so far,well,from what i have seen. It''s the Top Marques 1/12 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB in Silver. this looks so nice and sharp and came with no flaws from what i could see. Excellent detail all around the model and it looks sooooo Cool,really nice. I don't know if the actual car's interior is so basic but the plastic interior is about as close to a criticism as i could get. If you are looking for a great looking model and if you can find one of these (they have dried up very fast) from what i have in front of me i would say get this model it sure is a centre piece,even the Engine looks good and it's Top Marques best model to date,well done TM.

Very nice! I don't know much about the early Ferraris but I do know the coolest factor is captured here. Great work on the 'Ferrrari' emblem too!

The SWB is one of my favourite Ferraris and looks like TM did a good job here. They’re improving
