"Most Precise Model"
Just built this model and it is impressive! It is the toughest one I have ever built, but gives me the confidence ti attempt others that I have shied away from. There are many very small parts and many details not available on other models, but the precision that went into the engineering of this model makes it a lot easier to assemble, because when the parts are fitted together, you know that they are positioned correctly!

"Dream car."
Have been wanting this one for along time. Caught it on sale. The frame may be challenging for some. Engine looks great. Looks easy to add fuel lines and wires. Engine paints are basicly black and silver, i will mix it up with some brass and bronze, maybe some copper. Think there was 2 very faint mold lines. Great details all around. Thinking gloss black and red interior.

"Excellent Tamiya quality, one of their best models"
Excellent Tamiya quality as usual. Parts have minimal flash. Molded in white. Window masks and mesh material (for front air intake) included. Doors are movable, can be opened or closed and have a support tubes to leave them open if desired. Hood can also be opened and has a support tube to hold it if needed/wanted. Bumper pars are included for European or US license specifications. Detailed body frame, engine, cockpit and body. One of the best Tamiya models I have built. Highly recommended!!

"Challenging Build"
I build a lot of models and this was one of the toughest, but also one of the best. The qulity was excellent which is customary with Tamia. The sub frame is not for the faint of heart. When done it is one the coolest looking models.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
