The model looks good from across the room but is a little less convincing when inspected closely. If you pick it up, you'll be surprised by its light weight. Diecast usually has a distinctive heft, which this model lacks. Also, the door handles and gas cap hatch are indicated by very shallow incision lines. If they actually looked like they were operable, then the car might seem "almost real". That said, when viewed from a distance, the car's profile is spot on and the painted finish (Irish Green) is flawless.
RUF SCR - 2018 - Irish Green 1:18 by Almost Real
Best Car 1:18 ever, thank you very much!
I’ve had this 1:18 RUF SCR for a few days now which has given me enough time to make a proper review of this model.
I’d like to start off with the immediate presentation of the box and packaging. The box is quite sturdy with well placed logos representing the model car brand as well as the automotive manufacturer on all sides.
The model is placed inside a styrofoam shell which keeps the model quite secure during shipment. Almost Real has put logo designed tabs on each side to hold this shell together which is very appealing.
The model itself has a very accurate to name paint which looks very good. The exterior is done in diecast with full openings.
You can’t forget about the interior as it’s done with perfect execution, no details were missed; from detailed floor mats to miniature door stickers it’s all there.
Checking out the engine bay and seeing every small detail dressed in carbon which is replicated near perfectly just seals the deal… you really can’t go wrong with this incredible piece!
There’s nothing I’d say is incorrect about this piece and once again Almost Real are proving themselves to be one of the best in the diecast model industry.
This car is such a beauty with amazing detail….I highly recommend!
This is my fourth Almost Real model. As with the previous three, the RUF is flawless and a welcome addition to my collection.
Absolutely stunning example of my all time favorite beast of a car that RUF has produced. The model was shipped out promptly and tracking provided. Delivery was early- looking forward to doing business in the near future! Thank you again!!
While this is only my 2nd Almost Real model, it definitely won't be my last. The detail on the SCR is incredible as is the paint and fit and finish. If you're a Porsche/RUF fan this is a must have so don't miss out.
