Thanks to all!

 

Indeed quite "entry level": popular model, but also appreciated by 70s "top notch" F1 Legends:

Villeneuve-Fiorano-78-308GTB_zps6433c8ed

True that the 308/328 are in the most affordable bracket of "used" Ferraris, but indeed parts &.... maintenance/labor fees are "A$$$$tronomical"!....Prefer sticking with my "populist" (a bit heavier!) brand new Challenger! :P


In Topic: Upcoming TITAN 90 .....ORIGINAL ED???

The original 1970 edition would have been a better seller, but R2 had to set with the latest mold available in its hands, wich was the T529 Dragfoiler ed.

 

 

The latest ASTRO95 RC2 reissue, a few years back, was also a latest updated version, (same updates as Titan90 + delete of Turbine Engine option). Corner mounted side mirrors have been "deleted" on the chrome tree of all versions since then, but a few original 1970/71 parts have been kept in both Chevy/GMC updated versions: Single muffler pipe, low back seats, etc.

-1970 was the very first edition red/white boxart of the TITAN90 (T-509), AMT did the very early version of the TITAN: corner side cab mounted mirrors, smaller "C" cab grab bars & lower back seats, the kit was available until 1975/76....

 

-1976 Amt "updated" the... "NEW"! TITAN (T-529) with new seats, top "Dragfoil", & new "S" side grab bars, the mold was slightly modified to ad the newer updated parts... so we got this later one in 2008. (the Titan had been out of production since 1983).

 

IF Round2 got us back the very first 1969 "T-500" California Hauler Pete 359 kit...

who knows with the first 1970 TITAN &...1971 ASTRO95 kits ;)
