Very nicely deatailed with opening targa tops, eject seat and winch. Even the red scanner in the bonnet works. The dashboard is replicated extremely well.

How are these two quality wise compared to Maisto??

Here are the Pictures

Hi GTA, I had posted the same question, only about the Saleen from MotorMax... Dippy replied to that, I've quoted him above. The MotorMax models are comparable in quality to Maisto, Welly and the likes... like Dippy stated, they cannot be compared AutoArt, Kyosho or MiniChamps.

IMO, the Skyline looks pretty neat. ERTL I feel has good details, I think they are comparable to AutoART, Kyosho et al, will have to check with Dippy bout that though, Dippy can you help us out

The 2F2F Skyline I have is also from ERTL. Its got good level of detailing. They are comparable to Maisto. I would not compare it to Autoart or Kyosho levels but the KITT is an exception. It does have amazing detailing. The Skyline is not far behind really. It comes with a NOS cylinder etc a strut barce in the engine compartment etc.

So in a summary the Motormax and ERTL are at par with Miasto. I like one part that they are quite heavy, infact more heavier than Maisto models.

U wait and watch dippy.. First and foremost, SMOKING the rear lights. Irrespective of how expensive a maisto is, their rear lights always seem to be pathetic. So that and some touches to the grille maybe. Make it black most probably like i did on the M5.

@GTA, Dippy is right, the Playerz edition don't really need mods, the CLS is real hot, is she wearing Giovannis, cause they look real sweet on her. You don't need to work on it anymore, it is just great the way it is. The chrome grille really lets it stand out and contributes to the bling factor, IMO leave it as is... maybe if you have an airbrush, you could add some detailing to the bodywork.

Nice ride though, while you are at it, maybe you could check out the H2 and 300C, also the Gallardo, available from Maisto Players, all long good with the bling thing going on.
