A 700 horsepower horse to wield in your hands: Porsche 911 GT2 RS
This is a Porsche 911 GT2 RS made by Kinsmart and is labeled as being 1/36 scale
As you probably know by now I am obsessed with collecting die-cast. Primarily 1/64, but occasionally I will go to Walgreens and if there is no new Hot Wheels I might pick up a Kinsmart. At my local pharmacy they cost about $5 which isn't bad as they have lots of detail and have a pullback motor. Kinsmart makes all kinds of cars. Brands span from Toyota all the way up to Porsche. They even make concept cars and vintage cars. Not to mention they also make police cars. Now lets get into detail what this model is all about!
The first thing you notice is the carbon fiber textured hood. It is shiny and looks realistic. Within the carbon fiber hood is a printed Porsche logo. The details are very small, but they are there. The model has plastic headlights with chrome outlining and the headlights on the inside. The headlights are what really makes the GT2 RS look real. Even the headlights washers are present and are painted in black. As for the front fascia, the grill is textured and the skirt has the "GT2RS" lettering on it, just like the real car. Lastly for the front, the black painted louvers give the model an excellent look. Being a track car the aero components make this model exciting.
One of the best features of the car that really proves its detail is the "GT2RS" lettering on the sides of the car. The door handles are painted in white and the mirrors are painted black at the top and white at the bottom. And one of the signature features on a real Porsche is the air vents on the rear fenders where the air enters the 3.8 L twin-turbocharged flat-6 that pushes out 700 horsepower and 553 lb ft of torque! And here it is on this $5 model car!
A guess we can start with the engine trunk. It has carbon fiber textures and has the air scoops. The "Porsche" lettering is printed between the scoops and below is one of the rear brake lights that is painted in bright red. Now we come to the massive rear wing. Sadly the "Porsche" lettering isn't printed on the top of the wing, but the wing is metal and it surely won't snap off like a plastic wing would. As for the taillights, they are plastic and painted red with the silver hue in the middle which makes the model look super real. And in the middle is the "GT2RS" logo and just below that is a detailed license plate with numbers and letters. The rear details are above average and they really pop!

With all the the details on the outside, it would be to expensive to have lots of painted details on the inside and it would have to exceed the price of $5. There is a few textured buttons and the foot pedals are there. Even the bucket seats are shaped to look like the ones in the real car and honestly I don't really car that the interior lack detail. There is so much detail on the outside it makes up for it.
The details of this model are through the roof and for $5 this car is a bargain. I have quite a few Kinsmart models but this is one of my best. Sure its mostly because of all the details, but the fact its a Porsche makes me really cherish this model. I would highly recommend that you collect some if you don't already. There the perfect size and you will likely have enough room in your collection for a few.
So there you have it. I will give it 5 stars because it is highly detailed and very well put together. The quality and detail are above average and the model fits perfectly in my collection. Thank you all for reading and as always if you enjoyed don't forget to bump and follow for more! Have a lovely day!
