I don't mean to rain on your guys' antique parade, but I'd really like to see Hasegawa/Tamiya or Fujimi punch out a McLaren F1 road car.
Although I do like Bill Geary's choice's as well. I'm just more into modern exotics at this time.
As great as the Hasegawa 250TR looks, I'm passing on it. The car does nothing for me. Although I know the importance of this car to Ferrari, *gulp* I don't care for the lines at all.
Maybe I need to see a real one to appreciate it much better as the 2D pictures I see just do not flatter it at all.
And hey, that's just my opinion. I really look forward to seeing some stellar builds out of here.
I hear you! I don't find the TR to be particularly attractive and it's far from my favorite Ferrari, but I am wanting to build it, and have at least one on the way. I'd jump on a new McLaren F1 like there was no tomorrow! There are a lot of exotics not kitted that I'd like to see, and many other vintage Ferraris that I like much better than the TR. I saw the kit today @ Brian V's and it looked good, but the body wasn't as crisp as their newish 240Z, which gives any Tamiya kit a run for the money. The wire wheels in the TR are nice; they're see-through and when stripped/painted and black-washed should look great. Not sure if the P/E will look any better, I'm picky when the spokes look a bit flat.
