They had a sign below saying prototype.  So that is my guess.

I'd expect a ton of sinkholes nevertheless. Look at the Ferrari California and the Porsche Panamera.  Oddly enough, the McLaren 570 and Mercedes AMG GT were pretty well-molded.

You should see the sinkholes in the Schlingmann Unimog (30 year old version).  Some of them are like craters.  Spending a lot of time in cleaning that up

Not Car related but, glad to see the 1/72 Ju-52 and 1/35 GMC Deuce and a Half, from Heller. Those kits have been going for stupid money lately. This will knock the legs from under that market. And I'll get fresh decals. Some other nice Non-Auto stuff from Heller, as well.

Good Show.

P.S.  Any ideas for a good mail order vendor for purchasing Heller kits in the USA?

Aren't sinkholes from low injection pressures IIRC? Capillary effect fills some but ends up being divit since not quite enough plastic?

I don't know, but sinkholes are depressing. 😁

That is clearly a 3d printet prototype. You can see the "ripples" in the body. Will be interesting to see the kit when it comes out.

HobbyLinc and MegaHobby both carry some Heller kits.  I've ordered from both and never had any problems. Here are their Heller pages.

For many years, until Tamiya did its kit, the Heller GMC was the only kit of that truck with an engine.  I have an old Verlinden GMC 6-cylinder engine in a crate. I'm pretty sure they just copied the Heller engine and added the crate. Pic below.
