1966 Toyota 2000GT by AUTOart
This is my 1966 Toyota 2000GT by AUTOart, this is a nicely detailed 1/18 scale that looks gorgeous in person. The engine has super nice detail work on it, the front fenders have opening compartments with the left side having the air filter and a fluid bottle while the right side holds the battery. The interior detail is nicely done on this release as well. It is my understanding this is a re-release of this car with the original being diecast and this one being a composite body. From what I have read the composite body is an approvement over the diecast cleaning up the body some. It has wire wheels that look very nice. It has pop up headlights that are operated by a small slider switch under the left front side. I am including a photo of the Ferrari 275 GTB/C with the Toyota 2000GT to show how nice this car is design wise to other performance cars of the period. Toyota really did a nice job on this car. I recommend this car for those who enjoy the body lines of the Ferrari's of the era, this Toyota 2000GT displays great with other high end like cars.
Just showing the difference in how Rumble and Youtube will look and work.
What a GORGEOUS model!
Pretty sharp! Engine detail is nice and hose "fender doors" are really cool. 😎 😎
I just gotta ask.... What is that silver "protrusion" above the painted number on the driver's door? A light (because the race was 24hrs )? 🤔 🤔
I do believe its a light @chris.
I want to add that the wire wheels on this AUTOart Toyota 2000GT are real metal spoked wheels. I used a magnet to verify and they are metal and not a plastic wheel.
I don't have a lot of Japanese cars in my collection because they were just beginning to get into international racing during the time period I collect but I do have this Toyota in my collection and Autoart did do a great job with this model.
This has that serious racer look!
I posted the Rumble video of the 1966 Toyota 200GT with the Youtube video so you can see the difference in the videos. A Rumble video might have an ad at the start but you can skip the ad at the 5 second mark, that is because Rumble monetizes your videos from the start unlike YouTube who makes you have 1,000 or more subscribers and a certain number of views before they will monetize a video. I don't care about the monetization of the videos but they are automatically monetized on Rumble when you post them. As you can see there is really no difference in the play back of the videos as you can sync the Rumble and YouTube videos and they play exactly the same quality.
