Many modelers wish to achieve such a perfection level that their scale models look like real life miniature vehicles, when everyone looking at them have to rub their eyes and doubt if they have just heard the engine whispering... A fair amount of that magic is achieved through the details. Tubes, wires, rivets, carbon fiber decals... and little by little, and with an insane amount of work, the miracle is finally done ;D

The lads at Komakai certainly know what we love and surprised us with their new issue showing all details about the McLaren F1 GTR Short Tail, although it is also perfect for gaining some inspiration in our builds.

At SpotModel, of course, we also have the scale modeler spirit: we pursue perfection, we put huge efforts in the details, and aspire to give you a little bit of magic ;)

This issue from the Fast Guides series comes fully loaded of photographs of the McLaren F1 GTR Short Tail.
