Of course...
My conclusion: Ebbro is not bad. Not bad at all... But it is a bit rough at the details, and the nose is higher. I've never seen the real car, so can't tell which one has better proportions. The Mark43 has better details overall.

Grille and taillights on the Mark43 is more accurate, shouldn't be chrome like the first Ebbro version. The later Ebbro release has the matt grille.

Like I said, the Ebbro is not bad at all. But when you see them for real, the detailing on the mark43 is so much better...

Agreed.Mark43 has better rear and front detailing and better proportional fender mirrors..looks like side window is crisper too.if its priced right(which i think you guys say it is) i'd definatly upgrade to this.

Thanks

So, is the Mark43 2000GT really better than the HPI? Hard to tell... Definitely no reason to buy a better replacement. But I always regretted not have bought the white first nose from HPI (just find one for a nice price now...), so this was my chance ;)

The Isuzu coupe is a beautiful car. Reminds me of the Fiat 124. I wish we had gotten that that car as the rebadged Opel instead of the Isuzu Gemini. The Toyota Soarer looks familiar but I can't place it. Whether it's a Toyota or a Lexus in the US, it's not called Soarer.

Well, I just saw a first gen Lexus ES250 on the road last nigh and it kind of reminds me of that. Definitely not an ES250 but - to me - looks like a lot of other cars. :lol:
