    More photos of the FPPM 1/24th Auto Union model kit. Great looking model. Also the FPPM 906 full detail. If you want a detailed chassis buy the FPPM 906 in either short or long tail form. If you want no chassis detail but a kit including photoetch buy the Profil 24 906 longtail kit.

    Is the windscreen high enough? Many replicas get this wrong too.

    Pretty epic. Kinda fast, yes, but I guess they want to get it out as soon as possible while interest is still high. I'm definitely getting one, even though my model budget is screaming right now. Hopefully it will be another couple of month before its available.

    The Porsche 918 could be nice although Welly's already makes a very nice diecast of it in 1/24th scale wich is probably more detailed then the Revell kit will be amazingly!!

    Top of windscreen still a fraction low IMO. Should look a little too high and not inline with side windows.

    I think it looks pretty good too, but with that said...... It really depends on which car. These GTO's did vary back in the day, and many were crashed, rebuilt, re-bodied, etc. So the big question, which we may never know the answer to is.... Did MFH pick one specific car to replicate, and if so which one, and at what point in time? Or possibly did they rely too heavily on their previous 1:24 scale Kit which was a pattern they acquired from Kojima of Climax in Japan who originally made and produced that kit back in the 1980's. Nonetheless, the 1:24 Climax - MFH GTO kit was the best overall kit from anyone of a series one GTO.

    Regardless of their research, I'm very happy to see this one coming. Will it need modifications and some corrections for whichever car one wants to build? Yes, definitely, but it still looks really good, and is a far better base to start with than trying to rework the old Revell diecast!!
