Default FS: 1/43 Make Up ( Japan , handbuilt ) Porsches


Hi Guys ,
After years of collecting mostly 1/18 ( a few 1/12 sprinkled in ) I decided to try out some of the incredible handbuilt resin models in 1/43 by the Japanese company Make Up . These models tend to put even nice 1/18 models to shame with their level of detail and beautiful clear coated ( over the decals ) finish . They are little works of art . I went on a tear sourcing models from all corners of the globe finding some of the hardest to find models they've done in the Porsche range . Now I've decided after a couple months that I'm going to stick with the 1/18 and 1/12 scales and sell these models . There might be some who are familiar with Make Up ( I wasn't until very recently ) and know that the level of quality doesn't come cheaply so won't be too surprised by the prices .They are some of the best models made in any scale . I have them listed here by their Make Up # and priced them at what they cost me . Prices are plus shipping and you can use Pay-Pal if you pay the fee or use F+F . Some of these just arrived in the last week or so and haven't even been unwrapped . Inquire for details / pics .
Thanks,
Bryan

Wow those are really cool. I was wondering what sort of 1/43 you were talking about when we messaged a few weeks back. I am sticking with the 1/18th also but would love to see a couple close ups of the #6 on top if it is not to much trouble. I ended up buying the1/18th pink pig. I like it so much I sorta wished I got your 1/12 version after all!

Hi Scott ,
Here are some pics from Make Up which are far better than any I could take . The close up shots of the models are incredible - most have detail better than comparable 1/18 models . The thing with Make Up is that it reminds me of what it costs to get to this level on audio equipment , watches etc ; you spend 3 -5 times what a Spark or comparable model would cost . The law of diminishing returns kicks in , but side by side they make a Spark model look pretty pedestrian . Some of the details require a magnifier to see . I placed the '74 Martini RSR Turbo RSR 2.1 alongside my 1/18 Autoart Porsche dealer edition and it made the larger model look like a toy . The paint finish and graphics are on par with Amalgam - just staggering .

Scott I know what you mean . I'm having a hard time looking at some of my 1/18 models in the case because they don't measure up . I've collected brass model trains for many years in a few scales and one thing that is true for them is also true for scale model cars ; the smaller the scale the more jewel like the model comes off . In the the strict sense there is the possibility of adding more detail to a larger models , but things being equal the smaller model is more impressive . I'm having one of those moments now with trains - thinking of collecting some HO and HOn3 instead of the O scale I'm heavily invested in .
