Review : Tarmac Works 1/64 BMW M3 E30

Many versions of the BMW M3 E30 are already available in Tarmac’s Hobby64 line, offering quite a rainbow of racecar colors. All these iconic liveries are flawlessly scaled down to these 1/64 replicas in an impressive display or precision and accuracy.

BMW M3 E30 – Plain White (purchase on tarmacworks.com)

The interior is very detailed as well, with harnesses on the seats, a complete rollcage and even a painted gear stick. On that note, the rollcage seems to be a bit lower than it should be. That’s probably due to the construction of the model itself, working at such a small scale is not leaving much room to cram many things inside.

It is worth mentioning that the plain white version features a passenger seat, where all the race car versions accurately have the driver seat only.

On the outside, the Mobil 1 car has an antenna while all the others don’t. According to the few pictures of the real cars we could find on Google it seems accurate as well.
The wheels are once again beautiful, it is fair to assume by now that Tarmac will never disappoint on that aspect. The front lights could have been nicer with a little more care. Tomytec did it better on their 318 and 325.

 

The pictures speak for themselves : these E30 are just great ! Missing from this review is the newly released orange Jagermeister DTM version that look awesome.

And more are coming with emblematic liveries : FINA, Marlboro, Advan, Falken, Michelin, Bastos and even TicTac !
