Would like to post a picture of a 1:24 APM resin F50-GT kit. Very very rare and made of very high quality. The built models cost Rs.20,000 onwards (1:24)

This is an unbuilt kit which is retailing for around Rs.10,000 (incl. shipping)

I wish it was 1:18....

I just want to ask what's so special about the kit. I do not see a great amount of detail in the kit apart from PE parts.

And again it is a curbside model which means no opening doors hood and boot. There are many with opening hood and doors etc.

There are some good 1:24 kits available around of Ferrari by Fujimi and Tamiya.

A couple of things. The PE parts make some insane detailing. Trust me, I have tried my hands at it. Other than that, it is resin, which can be finished to a very very high sheen and at the end of it all, it is a F50 GT which not many have a license to make. LAstly, it is APM. which in terms of resin manufacturers are very close to the top of the tree.

Ok now I got it. But F50 itself is a turndown, I would prefer an F40 any day.

By the way I found the review of the APM kit. 85/100 is not bad.

Kit review: APM 1/24 Ferrari F50 GT (pic plenty) - Car Forums and Automotive Chat

And APM is releasing 1/24 599XX kit, that will be a fun to watch.

EDIT: I saw some built model retailing at 1200 USD. That is blody insane. Here is one picture of the finished one. Very nice.

I have always held APM in very high regard. I am still in two minds on whether to get something unique. A Novitec Rosso Kit for a HWE California. Although, I am eagerly waiting a 458 Hamann kit to be launched. Have you seen their built versions?? DAMN!! Awesomeness to the core. The problem is once you start dabbing into handbuilt stuff, you get addicted. So im keeping away!!

Anyways, Bugatti Veyron #2

This is a coupe from Autoart. Early body version in silver and grey. A very understated color but looks very very sleek. Serial number:7582.

Please excuse the rubbish picture.

So I have decided to bite the bullet. My favorite car in the world right now is by far the SLS ///AMG. Although the minichamps version is good, the car isnt as I would like to have it. It needs a little more style. I have FINALLY decided to bite the bullet with this then and get my first set of ULI NOVAK rims for her. I need you guys to tell me which would suit her the most. The car is Red in color now and will be getting the wheels and painting them either silver, Gold or Black.

Also, should I go in for the 23 inch rims or the 21 inch Rims? I will also be getting a photoetch brake kit from ULI to accompany the sexy wheels. Views and opinions guys... I need them!!
