Been there, done that.  Order is in at HLJ.  Nice part is that I will have probably forgotten about and when it gets here, it can by my Christmas present to myself!

Yup. Pre-ordered. I'm fairly (pleasantly) surprised at the price point, given what Tamiya's been charging for the Lexus LF-A and Aston DBS kits. I would have thought $70-80. That's money I can spend on CF decals!

Hopefully it's up to the standard of the carrera gt, enzo or lfa. A bit disappointed with tamiya's brz.

Actually this price is about the same as the LFA in yen. 4800 vs 5000. The good price has more to do with the exchange rate that anything else. I just hope this rate holds. Makes Japanese goods very desirable.

The LFA was only $70-80 stateside, I bought mine from HLJ right after it came out for less than $50 shipped.  With the exchange rate as Peter mentions the kit is actually priced at $40.43 today.
