      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

Platz/NuNu Hobbies BMW M6 1/24 scale plastic model kit

What was hitherto deemed impossible has happened!
A model kit making company has released new model kits, it has emerged.
According to well informed circles this is tantamount to commercial suicide.

Falken version is a minor revision to the first kit which adds the specific fender cooling vents that are only run at Nurburgring regardless to series (VLN, ADAC GT Masters, and 24hrs). 

There is a further kit that will be coming in September with Team Italia Blancpain livery that will add a few specific parts for the Sprint configuration (which adds C/F inserts for the fog lights as the primary visual change).

FWIW these reissues as well as their new tool 911 RSR GT3 were covered in the Shizouka Hobby Show thread as they made their debut at that show.

There are no Le Mans versions. This year's BMW entries were BMW M8s, they did not have entries in 2016 or 2017. BMW made the decision late last year to keep the M6 as a GT3/GTD customer racing platform and make the M8 their LMGTE class car.

Like pointed out, this is a simple modified reissue

'87-'89 would be the mild refresh models. Fujimi made an '86 Alpina as part of their Enthusiast Series 635s.
