VERY cool!

 

The game has evidently moved up a bit since the Ferraris...

Yes I agree...I hope the transkits are more affordable...I would love to super detail this..    I like how Scale Auto Works allowed me to pay for the car in small payments...or I wouldn't be able to get the Aventador.

Bianco Isis pics on Pocher's facebook page....I'm wondering if we can adjust the ride height...I think she's riding a little high...(for my taste)

For anyone who hasn't visited that link in the past week, there are many new pictures. The engine is amazing.

I'm also hearing of a possible DMC or Novitech Tornado transkit for this....   but a Mansory Carbonado would also be killer!

I've checked with my wife. She's asked me, "Is it over $1000?" To which my reply was "nooooo." She seems half keen as the body work doesn't need painting.

The half-molded differential and shaft boots are a negative surprise in an $800 kit...

Where else did they skimp?

Its there if you look at the Parts layout...the top half is on the same sprue...they might of just left it out for demo purposes

It's a shame because none of this will be seen once its all put together...except looking through the cutout on the floor pan....and between the wheel wells... the attention to detail is amazing....

Is there a need to paint any of the components? Some of those pieces look like aluminium.

Some parts will need detail painting, gloss/satin/flat, black wash, etc. if you want the model to be as authentic as ppossible. Not everything is the "correct" color right out of the box.

Agreed....You'll have seam lines/gaps that might need putty and sanding...so painting might be needed...I'm going to paint everything anyway..it looks a bit too "plastic" for me...

I pre-ordered mine from Scale Auto Works...They are expecting to get their shipment of (white) kits in late October - early November...So I'll expect my (white) kit mid-November by the time it gets to my door..The (orange) kits will be produced 2-3 weeks after the (white) is all complete...

I'm going to wait until some aftermarket/transkits come out for this before I start my build...besides it'll probably be to cold to do any painting (garage) by the time the kit arrives,
