No, it's not a comparison : Experience shows that models of different sizes can not be compared to each other, since the larger miniature is always better due to the depth of detail. An exterior mirror housing, a bow door handle or a brake disc are minimized to 1:18 always better executed than the counterparts in 1:43. That is why want no showdown at this point, but again take on the beauty of two model cars that are not to top at vision or perfection. Both Schuco and GT Spirit have given a lot of effort to meet the premium standards of Porsche and these to be transferred to the models for 34.95 euros and 89.95 euros.
The video for the 911 Sport Classic
The original for both models celebrated its premiere in September 2009 at the 63rd International Motor Show IAA in Frankfurt . Porsche presented the 911 Sport Classic series 997/2 then in a limited edition. We have already reported about the model of the Sport Classic GT-Spirit in the end of May, the Blog entry can be viewed at this link, more about the background to the development and the technical details of the model will be found there. There is no difference in the finish of the miniature car . Of course, both providers have the proportions of the model perfectly implemented in the standard 1:43 and 1:18, and met the look of two-door sports car exactly. Especially the domes above the seats in the roof : barely visible, but modeled correctly.
Prototypical interior design visible in the video
GT Spirit forms the interior as usual after every detail of the model, dimensioned correct. The switches look like they would work; The scales of the instruments seem to be waiting for some one to get in and firmly step on the accelerator pedal. This is of course not possible due to the fact that doors and hoods are closed in both Schuco as well as GT-Spirit. In return, fans can enjoy the recreation of the woven leather inside as well as the immaculate applied decorative strips ; as well as at the finish of the bodies, all visible in the video. The decorative stripe extends from the bow to about the reminiscent of the RS rump on the hood. GT Spirit has chosen resine plastic, the 911 Sport Classic from Porsche is made of the proven die-cast zinc. Conclusion: We like!
