from what I understand, it will not be made available to distributors or online, only if you physically go to MFH in Japan.

I just bought a similar item from a private seller, 1/24 Ford GT LM 2017

This is the first truly beautiful Ferrari that’s been made in a long time. Hoping Tamils will make the stock version of the 488. I’d buy 3.

Re: 488 GTE 1/24. new model by MFH

yeah, thinking the same here. I am now used to make those beautiful racer by my own, but if I find a decent looking model as a mfhkit should bei gladly pay for it.
ANd I also noted final price of the materials i achievefor my models is not sofar away from the one to pay for those ones. Justthe effort togive it a proper shape is incredibly harder.

Have you received your 1/24 Ford GT LM 2017 yet?
Just curious to find out for sure that these (the 488 GTE as well) kits really exist. Since the only mentioning of them I can find is some private sales and the pictures do not show the scale on the box I really would like confirmation that the scale actually is 1/24.
If true I know there is a Santa after all :-)

I think it’s truely a 1/24, I did saw a on site picture in Hobby Forum showing this, but can't remember where. Also a private dealer has pics showing they are1/24 proportion kit.

This is one of the pics from the seller that shows the scale on the instructions. it's been shipped with tracking, so hopefully I have it soon. I will post pics once I have it in hand.
