Looks like Herpa is going after it pretty hard with all those Porsches.

Neither. Well, I guess there is some plastic in there. ;)

Herpa's site says metal.

I've got the two tone model, it's a very nicely detailed model.

That's great news Marcel! I was a bit disappointed with the photos of the prototype models, but I see the final product looks better. Even though there's still something wrong at the rear just above the numberplate garnish.

I received my Cam@ Skyline Passage GT today and unfortunately I'm not impressed, especially at the price point. Maybe my expectations were too high :?

Mine has too many flaws that slipped through QC and it is obvious issues like a door handle metal transfer that was stuck on in the wrong place and places on the black waistline and rear number plate garnish where the black wasn't painted properly or it's coming off etc etc. I'll post pics of it in my Skyline collection thread.

Trax have a bunch of new releases that tempt me..especially the HD Ute (grey or green)and maybe the HG ute.(white or green)

The HD is the unloved holden as the following HR had a face-lift looking much nicer.
In fact I heard it is the only specific variant Holden that has no car club in Australia.
