Gallery : Tarmac Works Mercedes-AMG GT3

Now that is something really nice. The first Mercedes-AMG by Tarmac was a hit and that new GT3 version is another one!

Unfortunately the Hello Kitty came with a broken wing. The reason was a screw too short that couldn’t keep the car attached to the base properly. Bad luck I guess. I glued it back but it started leaning when I took the pictures. I managed to fix it properly later, so no big deal in the end. My only concern with those cars are the rubber mirrors, especially on the blue one.

That’s a shame to have bad mirrors on such great models, I never had this issue with the previous Tarmac cars like the Evo X, the Civic FK2 or the R8 LMS, all with hard mirrors. And none ever came with a broken one. To the Tarmac team : please reconsider the use of rubber mirrors ! It doesn’t matter they are unbreakable if they are looking weird.

That said, I love this AMG GT3 and will definitely get the green version.

The Aventador SV is the second car in the Global64 line after the Audi R8 V10 Plus.

They feel very close to what Kyosho used to do, with surprising details like the neat Lamborghini emblem on each wheel. As usual with Tarmac the wheels and decoration are very nicely done, even at this lower price point.

Somehow on the NFS Police version the front lights are much better done than on the other two (they look quite bad on the yellow as you can tell). The rubber side mirrors are – once again – not properly oriented.

On that note, I am definitely not keen on that trend of using rubber for side mirrors. They are almost never in the right position. I would rather have a broken mirror once in a while that I can glue back than twisted rubber mirrors all the time that I can’t do anything about.

Also available : Dubai Police version and Verde Ithaca green.
