Wow! They look beautifully made but probably way to expensive to race. Just a gentle drive now and again maybe?

They look excellent to me, I hope it works out for PRS so that they are able to release some other models from the same era.

i did notice one thing about them, other than the incredible detail. the stance of the car without the guides in is right. but the side on shots of the car in the slot is very wrong, the car is to high in the front and the whole car slopes backwards. how they can get this so wrong on such a pricey car is beyond me. john

I don't think the car has a guide in any of the pictures does it? In one of the pictures the nose looks a bit high but I thought that it had been photoshopped to look like it was accelerating, hence the high nose.

A bit like a real car then Pete?
Take a look on Google images at some 1:1s Stoner, the stance looks very similar to the real thing.

Well .. if we're criticizing (which I wouldn't normally do but at this price they should get it right). The side vents are too big on both the front and rear and the lip shown is a very subtle bending of the wing material not an add-on as shown - the nose is too high and the lip on the bonnet is exaggerated. It looks like a very nice model and well done to PRS for trying but for Eur 190 I want something that is perfect

The side on shot to which you refer is with the car moving. i think you will find it is a consequence of the car going into/around a corner. Being a nit picker There are two 'o' in too.

Stoner, I agree with you (about the car, not the sad, sad bit). The photos are very nice, but too much Photoshopping has been done for them to give any real indication of what the model actually looks like.

I think if you go to Grahams site (http://www.gp-miniatures.com/) you will find he has an accurate resin body with lots of nice photo etch. If you don't feel up to building it yourself GP will probably build you one for about the same price as PRS - but it will be unique.

Nice looking model but there's no more detail than most everyday slotcars and considerably less than quite a few. Blowing a load of cash on a car with the motor showing in the cockpit and a driver that looks like a 10 year old made it and painted it isn't at all attractive.

But these are obviously made for the wealthy few who will hoard them in glass cabinets, feel a sense of success at buying every single one, and then passing them on for lots more cash on Ebay in a few years.
