I really, really like to read what you think of the LCD Mclaren. Lots of biased opinions going round about LCD models, mostly because of the fact it's metal vs AA composite. Your review will no doubt be honest!
Yes, I agree. Many AUTOart haters out there, I can't blame them either. A promised of more affordable models with composite is not true. They even published an article about it - you can find it under the AUTOart news link main website. Better detailing yes and no, they are a far cry from the glory days of scale model collecting...

What I can tell you is that I'm reviewing this model in detail, and it will be written by a collector for collectors. I hope it's great! :popcorn:

LCD are great models for the price. See my unbiased review of the Pagani Huyara Roadster on this site.

I can't agree more. I so hope it is great. Competition in this market can only be a good thing!

I just read it, good review! Looks indeed great, not up to AA level I think, but I hope they are quick learners and the McLaren is on par and a worthy competitor. The hobby needs it badly.

BBR Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta

I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea but in this colour combo, the car is epic! I missed out on the first batch... Not this time! :love:

This car has a butt that only a mother would love, LOL. I like the first half of the car though.

I see! I don't expect any direction from LCD Models China. They responded to zero requests via multiple media services from us. There biggest hurtle is distribution. If you want one of the above try eBay. I hate to say it!

BBR Ferrari 512 BB LM:

Unfortunately, as you can see in the second photo, it's missing a hood pin, which is nowhere to be found in the box or anywhere else. I'll be keeping the model, but that's kind of annoying.

EDIT: I just noticed it's also missing the shifter.

I love these models the wheels and serious stance on them, some respects could be better flocking in the interiors would be nice.

Nice addition. One of the cleanest and most refined models in my collection. Sorry to hear about the misses. Did you try contacting BBR? Also, there are some aftermarket options here, Wes can surely elaborate more.
