I finally got around to picking up Spark's 911 GT1, so thought i'd take a few photos. One of my favourite racers of the late 90s, this and the Toyota TS020.

I love those recent 1:18 endurance racers, they look amazingly realistic.

i'm going to echo Tom's comment about how realistic these are. I know models are supposed to be realistic but these look like Spark have shrunk the real thing

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

thanks niki, both look stunnning. The only downside about the GT1 is the rear light arrangement is incorrect, it's a little thin compared to the 1:1. Also the alloy wheels seem to be a bit large in diameter compared to those seen in photos of the car racing at LM.

I was lucky enough to pick up one of my 1:18 grails a few weeks before Christmas, but have only just got around to taking photos.

That'd hurt the wallet a little... fully worth it though, I could look at the pair for weeks.
