High Quality Scale Model
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:57:14 AM »
What is the best quality scale model, either kit if already built 66 GT350H?
Owned since 1971, driven over 235,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

In die-cast already made some of the nicest out there are the 1:18 Lane Collectibles/Exact Detail or 1:24 Franklin Mint.
There is also a very nice smaller 1:43 by Kyosho, but it has white walls, that need to be removed and reversed to show the blackwalls.

If your looking to build a plastic model then your only choice is the 1:24 Monogram/Revell kit.
Here's what I built from the kit, but I painted the lemans stripes instead of using the kit decals.

Thanks, I wish could build these as a career. For the amount of time and cost of materials they take to build to this level, I would go broke for what I've been offered for a build by some folks here on the forum.

altho it lacks some detail,and needs modifying,  the 1/12 scale revell 65 350 would work nicely.M2 makes a nice 1/24 diecast. phred (the gold stipes are easy to make)
