I am doing some larger scale models soon. I will post my progress as they go into preparation and detail my impressions of these kits. Here are the subjects [Profil24 base kits]. Both will include extra detailing. These will be available for sale so contact Mike if interested.
Maserati 450S Le Mans 1957 Kit Preview:

The 450S arrived yesterday and I will go over it it more detail but overall the castings are very clean. I am thinking of fabricating the chassis over in brass to give it a more durable platform to build off of.
Clean up and initial dry fit stage has begun on the 450S. I can see lots of changes being made...especially improving on the panel fit, rivet details [removing cast in place ones] and chassis as already noted. I can also see the use of real aluminum will be a vast improvement here.
Overall the casting quality is very nice and general fit is acceptable.
