Good model and reflects the 1:1 well.

It's a very interesting model, but personally I prefer the original DB4 GT design.

Totally agree with you. But I did buy this model for a bargain too... still think I shouldn't have :)

Unusual styling, although similar to some other small Fords - I like it a lot.

I don't ever recall seeing a 1:1 of that Taunus. I used to like the standard two and four door saloons.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Beautiful shape and nicely made, though I hope that the silver chrome isn't as obvious IRL as it is in the pictures. It's my reason for not buying BoS versions of pre-'980s cars.

The same reason that I've become leery of BoS models.

I see what you mean about the interior on Sparks MG B GT V8, but the thing that stood out for me as wrong is the rear lights. They look like the 1960's style, I don't think they were used on the V8 - unless any experts know any better? I would have preferred Spark to use the rear lights from their Midget on this model.
That said, the shape is a vast improvement over the AA MG B. :D
