I searched this forum, but I can't see any reports on this kit yet. Has anyone seen the  1/12 scale Tamiya Porsche Carrera yet? I'm talking about the full assembly kit - not the semi-assembled one. I guess this is the next in the series after the Ferrari Enzo kit (which I'm the process of building already).

 

I saw it at HLJ here...

It is out now in the US, but if you thought the Enzo was pricey, this one is about $150 more. Waiting to see if they do the Ferrari 288 GTO personally.

The kit works out to about 260 GBP delivered in the UK. Thats about 390 dollars. I paid about the same for the Ferrrari Enzo kit. Yep - they are price kits, but probably the nicest I have ever seen. I would love to see a 288 GTO!!

Thanks for that link Ron. Looks like another one of those 'Must-Have' kits, just like the Enzo. Time for me to raid my savings account!!

Looks like I will need to budget for a load of carbon fibre decals too.

I saw the instructions on hobby search. Compared to my Ferrari Enzo the Porsche GT is more complex in terms of metal parts.
