GT-Spirit meets high requirements
The miniatures correspond to the high expectations of the fans, who meanwhile place them on GT-Spirit. The line management is done perfectly. In this regard, the miniatures are always a highlight, because the filigree lines of the headlights, their inner workings, grill grates in the front apron and kidney are impressive evidence. The replicas of the light alloy rims of the four-piston fixed-caliper disc brakes on the front axle or the single-piston floating caliper disc brakes on the rear axle - each internally ventilated - are better not to be implemented in the format 1:18. Accordingly, the look of the interior, of the dashboard, interior door panels and seat construction is of a high standard. A praise also for taillights and sills - and of course to GT-Spiritmodels for delivering first-class miniatures!
