I think that's a great accomplishment and the cars look really good for purpose-built offroaders. I might get the 2013 winner.

Well, you can get married looking like this

or you can look like this...

They are accomplishing the same thing but only one of them looks good doing it.
I would say that those overly large MINI's need to get in for service because they seem to have a smoking problem :lol: ;)

+1 I could not have said it any better :D

And I don't recall ever seeing one before. A definite contender for the 'Odds n ends' section of any collection I think :mrgreen:

I agree: the roof line looks too low and the tires too large and wide-- even the drawings look better proportioned- can't image Pete Brock approving these

I don't know which is more accurate but I thought the same thing. So many things look off compared to the drawing: the white stripe on the front fender behind the headlight, the roofline, size and angle of rear spoiler...

Something else....

As I hoped as a McLaren lover, True Scale Model is going to make a McLaren 675LT! The orange will be in the collection..

The width of the windshield looks more like the Willment coupe than the Shelby Daytona's.

There is really nothing appealing about them. Pass

How come they put so much money into the development of those models, lots of people must've looked at them yet nobody saw what is bl**dy bvious to me (and I'm not that familiar with the real cars), and apparently everyone here?

I always wonder how this happens, just look at the rear tires on the model, that alone should have sent it back to the drawing board.
