Here are the photos of what is in the Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador kit. I haven’t examined for sink marks or tree connection issues as yet. The kit has a lot more in it than the Fujimi, including metal pins for the doors and (I assume) hood as they all open. The optional PE set sure looks like it was done by KA models (who also do the Fujimi ones). But I haven’t checked that out either as yet.

Here is what is in the kit.

Who would have thought that Aoshima would become the Japanese model company to beat these days... just look at those crazy door hinge pins!

Same color I am going to use, and getting it from the same place :lol:
I am not sure if I am going to use the kit wheels, or go aftermarket
Like they say, great minds think a like ;)

This is what I would like to do with mine

I agree on casting the tires. What aftermarket wheels are available for the lambo? I have looked but havent come across anything. Jada makes a "players" lambo or "big time" version (cant remember what they call it but I know it's jada for sure) of the murcielago that has some really nice deep dish wheels that I have thought about hijacking for my lambo build.
