    Same for me Pedro, the F40 was the latest streetcar.
    From the last 25 years only racecars (no F1).
    I am only missing a 360 GTC ( I have a full APM-kit of this one) and a 348 GTC/LM ( rebuild a Bburago?)

    The Tecnomodel 365 GTB/4 Proto is totally wrong ... wrong nose, wrong headlights, wrong taillights... The only one which is partly correct is the silver one in this series... That has the right headlights... It is strange that tecnomodel brings out 2 different models under the same name and then with such faults.... shame

    Unfortunately not a surprise, but exactly what we've come to expect from Tecnomodel. They keep making very poorly done models, and too many dealers and collectors still keep buying them!

    I think that, at least the F50 GT, didn't worth the money. 400 euro is too much for this quality.
    We'll have to wait till better pictures of the P4/5 to see if it worth 400 euro...

    I think that for the price, the bbr P3 is a very nice model .....the P4 from amalgam is just absurdly expensive IMO...nice, but quality not that diferent from BBr, no way you can justify the price.

    Quality-wise, how does the Amalgam P4 compare to the GMP?

    I completely agree, and I do have, and buy very expensive models, but they have to be worth the price, which the 1:18 Amalgam models are not.

    Hard to do an exact comparison, since they offer different detail level, and different price points, but quality-wise Amalgam's are overall better than GMP, but still not worth the price. Also, you have to take into consideration that all of the 1:18 Amalgam's are sealed models while GMP models have opening/working features, and are also placed at a much lower price point. So any direct comparison is really 'apples to oranges' - both are fruits, but completely different. Maybe the nod goes to Amalgam for the overall look, but not by much.

    My only complaint with my GMP P4 is that the front bodywork refuses to stay on the car!

    1/18 BBR Pagani Huayra Roadster Full Black Carbon Fiber with Green lines available for pre-order at unusual43. This is one of the most stunningly specced Huayra Roadsters imo.

    That looks great John. I have this P/F Spyder on order, actually one of each color, blue, and red. Can't wait to receive them.
