Cheers.

Nice build so far and a really cool looking car and kit. I like the body quality but the rest looks very average but not bad. Just curious...did they copy the MFH engine or do their own ? At least it's not a Taymia cope judging by all the 3D print marks !? They shoulkd blow the kit up to 1/12 !!

Hi Daniel,
For sure it's not a Tamiya copy, but sorry, I don't know if it is a MFH copy.
I only know that Wolf/Neko Team drawn and print their kits in a 3D system.
Cheers,
João Alfredo.

I was curious in which parts specifically do you mean to be average and what do you mean by "average", quality of the pieces? faithfulness to the original piece? where could it improve? I confess that I saw no defects in the kit. I found a kit extremely detailed and faithful to the 1/1 car made in the 1/20 scale

This kit is great. There is no perfect kit, nor are MFHs. But this kit is one of the most detailed and well made lately. Whimsy and commitment to quality are indisputable. And this work is fantástic.

Pleas don't get me wrong. It's a really great looking kit. I totally love the way the intake trumpets are made of turned parts and those wm parts...simple but effective.
I think the quality of the wm parts could be a bit better. I'm not a huge fan of those very visible 3dprint steps....better printer, some cleanup before casting, maybe some careful blasting..guess there are a few solutions to this.
But I really dont like all those rods and tubes. Try to explain it with my limited english. I'm really not a fan to cast those suspension supports and all the other rods/tubes in wm becasue the always look bended. Maybe add some small tube were you just can slide in the end connectors....Was that clear !? :)
This is something I do to all my kits. Plastik or MM. I think tubes and rods need to be perfectly straight not wobbly or bended.

Just some thoughts....really interest how this one turns out in the end.
