Beemax BMW M3 '91 Deutschland Model
Posted by scalecar on Monday, January 01, 2018 7:01 PM

Just finished the BMW. There are some areas Beemax have done well for easier building:

1. All windows are individual pieces installed from outside like the real car. Each window comes with a window frame edge for easy masking and painting.

2. Mirror comes with location pin for precise and more robust installation.

3. Real spoiler comes with location pins for precise and easy installation.

4. Racing seat side holes for seat belts are pre-drilled, making it straightforward to install your own seat belts.

There are some areas they can improve on:

1. Part B11 for rear wheels does not seem to fit while still allowing the rear tires to be installed. 

2. It is real tight to fit the body onto the chasis in final assembly. I ended up shaving/sanding off some of the connection pieces to pop the car together while holding my breath.

All in all, it is still a very good kit offering something unique that the major players are not releasing.
