Tamiya 1/24 Mercedes AMG GT3

August 14, 2022 · in Automotive · · 16 · 1.2K

Over the years GT racing most of the world's manufacturers, not least Benz. This is the Mercedes , released in 2016, in line with the FIA's GT3 class specifications.

Based on the AMG GT production car, it was given an aluminum space frame, carbon fibre body parts, a giant rear wing and diffuser, front spoiler, etc.

There is a naturally aspirated 6.3 litre V8 under the bonnet. The GT3 had many victories and podium finishes during the 2016/17 seasons.

The model was built out of the box but used after market transfers to depict the Spa 24 hour winning car. The transfers included tyre markings which were absent in the standard kit. The main colour is 's Light Gun Metal from the spray can.

Thanks for looking and happy modelling.
