Guys, I'm working on resin kit of Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM '98 based on rare Sakatsu kit. https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/4713/1310603.66/0_bec7e_59d9a690_XXXL.jpg (https://fotki.yandex.ru/next/users/firun/album/112713/view/781438)

I will cast other parts in a week or so and prepare decals in a month. The price will be 60-70 USD. What do you think?

The main difference is on the front
LM on the left, GTR on the right

CLK LM had M119 V8 engine instead of M120 V12 which powered CLK GTR.
Dexter models is absolutely right about different front parts, and additionally roof on CLK LM is lower and air intake is different to CLK GTR.

Oh, looks nice, and decals look good too. I want one as well. But I've spent far too much money this year. I'll have to hit you up after New Year's and hope you still have some left.

Constantine, hello. And that means your words 'based on rare Sakatsu kit'? You have something altered? Change?
Or simply stolen and copied? You know what it's called piracy?

Respected community. This is a pirated copy Sakatsu kit. If your conscience allows you to order it, I must warn you about the seller.
He does not sell a quality product. Terrible quality. Here are the pictures to prove. Some are made by me. Some of the other people with whom I do not even know.
But that, too, he bought kits. And also there is his own photographs. Because of his own albums.

Do you think he will cherish his name seller and sell you a high-quality copy? Are you seriously think so? The man who is engaged in piracy?
Still want to check it out for your money?
Thank you.

Barabakin, my dear Israeli friend, you can call it piracy, but you can't buy Sakatsu kit, until I've copied it. BTW, thanks for Porsche photos – i've published them here and fellow Automotive users have already received it.
