Let me say that is, seriously, one of my best finds this year:
It’s not a Super, or a Car Culture model, or a rare variation, but it still is a great find. It isn’t even because this one heckuva look for the AMG GT casting. Black paint with dark rims is a fantastic choice.
But the reason this specific model is a great find, is because of the headlights. My good find is in the back:
Many of you have to know what I am talking about. I don’t know if it is the angle of the casting that makes applying the tampo difficult, but whatever the issue, the headlights on most AMG GT models look like a promo for the upcoming Venom movie.
More bug eye than headlight, with that thick white outline that makes the tampo cover the entire corner of the model. In fact, the comparison model I am showing was the best version I could find until this latest find. But the headlights still looked pretty bad. Until this last one, that I actually pulled from a G case, sitting in front:
Finally, normal. I don’t think there were any improvements made mid-run, I just think diligence is required. Of course if you care. I like the model, I am a diecast nerd, so I care. And I am glad I found one. It looks awesome.
