Hi, my name is Stan and I’m going to introduce a variety of models on the Chinese market to you. Most of these brands you probably never heard of.
I wanna start with two Ferraris from two brands: one is a 250 GTO from MY64, the other is a F40 from VMB. Both are resin, yet there’s a huge difference between them.
First, Let’s talk about the 250 GTO. This is by far, the most delicate 1/64 model I’ve ever seen from any company. Just look at it and you’ll understand.
It’s hard to believe this is 1/64. Look at how many etching pieces are on there! Look at the tiny seats and steering wheel! All the wires on the hollowed wheels! The screws on the headlights! The leather buckles on the hood! Every detail was replicated and downsized to its finest. This is, a 1/43 handmade model shrunk into 1/64 scale.
Here are some details. It’s gonna take forever if I talk about them all, so let pictures do the talking.
Magnificent, isn’t it? Now let’s look the the not-so-good VMB F40. This model’s problem is obvious: proportions. It’s too big and bloated to look like a sharp F40.
Now put it up with the TLV F40. Oh god what a difference. Anybody can tell that TLV’s proportions are more accurate.
Last, I put three cars together and you have a great trio, enjoy!
At last, bear in mind that there is a good reason why these are not sold in US: they’re unlicensed products. For those who doesn’t care, take them while you still can because all of these makes might be just a flash in the pan and never reappeared again.

Glad I didn’t order the VMB F40. The 250GTO is just Spectacular!! Best car in 1/64 so far, by miles honestly.
Can’t wait for my pair.
Where did you find the 250GTO? Looked on Ebay but didnt see it.
There is one on Ebay selling for the price of 200 USD…
Great writing, It’s nice to see someone offering a very unbiased appraisal of models, praising where deserved, but also critical where deserved too.
Are you getting the PGM version of the 250 GTO as well? That one also looks really good and i hope them continue making small and exquisite models like these
That one looks very promising, but I haven’t order one yet.
