Meng has had this kit in the forthcoming pile for a while, and it looks like, from the information we received today - that it may give the Trumpeter kit of the same subject a proper run for this money - the famous Ford GT40 Mk.II from the 1966 Le Mans 24h driven by Ken Miles. A very popular subject (and a movie star to boot), this model has piqued interest with a lot of people who aren't even car modellers.

Here is the information we have from Meng:
MENG announced the plan of releasing model kits of the legendary Ford GT40 officially licensed by Ford Motor Company in 2019. Since then, Meng has received countless feedback from modellers and auto racing enthusiasts from all over the world. After the study and tests by the MENG team for almost one year, the first Ford GT40 product will be available soon.
This first product, RS-002 Ford GT40 Mk.II ’66, is a 1/12 scale model kit prepared for modellers. It has all the features of a classic plastic assembly model kit.
Besides the large size of the car which offers great visual impact, you will get more from this RS-002 model kit. Our design team hopes to present more details and more realistic experience in this large scale model.
This MENG RS-002 Ford GT40 Mk.II ’66 features not only an impressive size but also unparalleled fine details. More exciting news will be revealed later.
This new kit is still in development of course. You can see more info on this kit and others from Meng on the Meng Models Website...
