1/18 Porsche 3.0 Carrera RSR from GT Spirit. Spark makes the same model, which I have been after for a while, but that one is more expensive, so I can live with the GTS version.

That's for sure! The prices on the GTS version were going up as well, so it was time to just pull the trigger. I see Spark versions for sale more often, but to be honest, the GTS looks just fine.

It's impressive. I especially like the way they did the interior. It's a good value. There's almost no detail overlooked.

My criticism would be the solid mesh around the taillights. I know it would be hard to do exactly to scale, but they put a very fine mesh over the engine. Why not around the taillights as well? I think it would have looked fine and would be more accurate than the solid piece they used.

I think it's too difficult to execute the rear mesh in scale.

Love both...great color on the AMG.

Wish they'd done better looking wheels on the Audi, though.

Not sure if there is an alternative wheel option. Nonetheless, I like the uniqueness factor of the model overall.

I think this is appropriate, seeing Gavin's yellow Corvette trio in the random pics thread. I present my newest addition, the AUTOart Callaway C12:

I have that same one...bought cheap locally off Craigslist. I had planned on selling it, but I ended up loving it. It photographs & displays VERY well.

I got the Fangzhou Arcfox GT, but the passenger seat came loose, as you see. I noticed someone (not sure whether it was the manufacturer or the seller) put little blocks of foam inside. In my opinion, this was completely unnecessary and may have created more risk of damage either by pressing against delicate parts of the interior or by having to be removed by the buyer.
