Overall the Granni is good except for (fly poo out the pepper time) :-
Grill fit
W/screen frame too heavy
Wipers are blobs
Wheels needed replacing
S/wheel is cruder
Front seats are too thin
Paintwork is satin rather than gloss
Solid intake on bonnet

:roll:
Exactly; there's absolutely no comparison IMO. Tecno's a massive bargain!

The 5000GT's droopiness would be a deal breaker for me. I have the same car by Auto Replicas (or someone) and it's much nicer.

At the price of £30 it was worth a punt. Thought 'bend' was dodgy camera work.
I am still happy though, I got 3 other Masers at the same price which were mint.

The colour of your new 5000 GT is quite nice! ;)

And, those wheels on your PWs version make it look so much nicer. So, they came from a Minichamps model?

Like the 5000GT. Often, errors in shape are exaggerated by angle and lens distortion. I bet it looks great in the display.

Another couple of crackers David - coupe for me, I think a coupe looks better than a spider is most cases, unless the spider was the original.

Wow, you're really conquering the Maserati market David! Lovely models, these don't need a wheel swap.

Tom, it's just coincidence, honest. On one hand there is the Maserati 100 Years Collection currently in print and resin makers seem to have targeted the marque.

I have 4 shelves of Maserati compared to..................
3 Abarth
3 Fiat
4 Alfa Romeo
5 Lamborghini (the PW was a boost here too).
11 Ferrari

They certainly will, really deep and recessed wires. Even better than BBR.
A stunning pair of whitemetal models.

x2. My Maserati total is currently 65 and I anticipate that growing some more with Partworks 100 Series.

Were all those high-end Masers all around the 30 quid mark? Bargain of the year I reckon!

BTW here's my Auto Replicas 5000GT....ImageImage

Tempting tempting...

I must say I'm a bid disappointed by the Maserati 100 years collection. Most of them are too old for me, or racers. I was hoping for all kinds of Biturbo variations...

First time I see this, and I like it a lot. Good and unusual colour, nice shape!

It is worth every cent of the normal price, so just get one for about 80 and you won't regret it. It's the right colour, not a fantasy colour... And it is really brilliant.
