Ferrari 330 TRI-LM 1962

Post by Stig » Sat Jul 01, 2017 5:29 pm

Looksmart has presented his new 1962 Le Mans winner Ferrari 330 TRI-LM. Let's compare it with the previous Red Line. I think it's actually the same model updated in some details.

We can see slight differences in exhausts, rivets, bug deflector, and so on.

Up: Red Line
Down: Looksmart

You got to fix the code or the forum software won't display your pics.

Thanks for your help!

Now I can see the pictures... but I don't understand what I've done wrong

What code are you talking about?

Good observation, though its not really surprising they are the same basic model.

I have the old Redline version and the thing that always annoyed me about this model was that the wheels appeared to be on the smallish side (Redline simply used the same wheels they used on their 250 GTO's). Looking at the picture below, it appears the wheels should be larger and fill the wheel arches a lot more than they do on the Redline model :

For the Looksmart version, it appears Spark have simply used the same wheels from the Looksmart Ferrarri 250LM's. While they may be a better size than the Redline version, I think the rear wheels could still be bigger.

If Spark is going to start re-releasing Redline models under the Looksmart brand, will we see them re-release the 250 GTO's as well ?

Both look a little off to me, the wheels and track width being the main problems.

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.

I agree 100 %. In both versions, wheels are smaller than real car, specially the rear ones.

Apart from this, I think the minor updates and details on the Looksmart model are correct and have served to improve the model.

About GTO's, in Looksmart future releases I haven't seen any.

To my eye this is not a re-release but a completely different casting.

You could be right Phil. At the same time, there are enough similarities that I think they possibly used the original Redline as the master, before refining some of the finer details like vents, windows etc.

I agree Ian, wheels look like they've been taken off the 250LMs. The rears have to much off an offset (deep dish appearance) as well compared to the 1:1, as well as looking on the small side. Still a very nice model.
