Modeler's 1/24
Viper GTS-R LM97

Updated on 02/19/99

The body is too small for 1/24 scale.  The actual measurements of the kit body suggests that it's just slightly larger than 1/25. 


beetle12.jpg (33803 bytes)I  saw the Scale Design's GTS-R kit briefly, so it's hard to compare, but the front section around the wheels is noticeably different.  There are two variations, so I think both are accurate.

beetle12.jpg (33803 bytes)The rear is also too small for 1/24 scale, but it's hard to make it bigger except the bumper.  The photo etched wing stays are molded together with the resin body, but this makes polishing work of the area between them harder. 
The other resin parts are as shown.  Chassis, dashboard, seat, and the part under the rear axle are included.  All resin parts are cleanly cast.

The metal parts shown in the picture are adequate to enhance the appearance of the GTS-R.

911gt104.jpg (42450 bytes)There are two trees of photo etched parts, and one is painted black, and the other is chrome plated.
