Starting the 1/12 scale GT40

February 6, 2023 · in Automotive · · 8 · 0.8K

This is the start of the scale , this kit from China has no brand name but I am fairly certain that this is a kit produced by . This kit from what I can tell was once a toy due to the chunky vinyl parts and oversized screws. I am having to recreate many details to make this a model versus a toy. They have added some photoetched parts to the kit which makes it somewhat tolerable. Not a great kit, but the size makes it worth the time.

  1. An amazing entry, Rick! Great skills applied in turning this ex-toy to a model.
    Looking great so far!

  2. Great work done, Rick @rickschad
    Especially those tires do look realistic.
    Looking forward to this build.
    You might consider to enter your build in one of the group builds and start a thread about your progress.

  3. Looking good so far, Rick, how about entering it into the 100th Anniversary Le Mans group build here on iModeler?

  4. Sweet work so far. Digging the scratch-built additions.
