Another great news !!!
Starting August 20th at http://www.modellingstore.com.

Alfa Romeo 182 of 1982 by Neko Models

Image

Extremely faithful to the car that raced at the 1982 Monaco GP, based on refined 3d design with exact measurements and proportional to the real model, with white metal parts, photo etched and rubber tires.

What a great model!.
Thanks for the post, Nelson.

Looks like a real replica.
Rubber tires, photo-etched, and no cutting templates...
Much better than sapito's.

Cheers,
João Alfredo.

Dear James,

I have seen the pictures of the pieces from both kits.
And they show very well the differences.

Wasn't my inttention to upset you.
My apologises.

This is only my personal opinion.
For sure someone will disagree and find Sapito much better than Neko's.

Best Regards,

I'd say they actually show the similarities, virtually 99%, even the part split, which otherwise is quite logical.
No worries, I am not upset at all. 8)
"Apollogies accepted, captain Nida" :wink:

PS: I doubt anybody with a minimal objectiveness will find any of them "much better" than the other since they look pretty much the same, both assembled or not. I never commented or highlighted competition's choices' shortcomings and won't in this case either.

I think pointing out that one of the kits has a full driver figure with decals is a fair point to compare! :)

And another is the fact that one kit is only resin and the other of various materials such as photo etched metals and rubber tires. Assembly results may differ. I prefer a multimedia kit

Fair point about resin vs. multi-media! I will probably end up buying both!
