I posted a review back in April 2018.
Basically my verdict was that it is a very good model, accurate in scale, and despite what photos appear to show, the front and rear grillework is proper bright chrome and not silver-grey painted plastic, and looks pretty crisp. A black wash would improve the definition, but the depth of detail in both grilles is sharp enough to take a black wash very well if you feel inclined.

I reluctantly resisted the burgundy Neo version because I thought charging double for an essentially identical model with the roof chopped off was too much of a rip-off to swallow (but it IS very pretty!)

Here are links to my original review and some close-ups if you're interested. In the second thread you can also find my "Black Wash for Dummies" instructions, and illustrations of the difference it can make. Ah, but even as we speak I've just noticed it was you who asked for opinions on these models and advice on black wash in the first place, so you can ignore this (or you can read my instructions again!)

Jack, I have both.- Fear not, the body is straight on both models. No blackwash on either grille. (EOM) by Stanton Lyman #25275.1
What I feared was that the grilles might be too bright silver, even by Jack Dodds #25275.1.1
