Gary, if the Miura is the ESCI reissue - which I think that it is - then beware! It is clumsy and toylike, detail is sparse, proportions are wrong. This is why I sold mine many years ago. The best Miura on the market is from Hasegawa though it is a late SV version.
I'm absolutely with you on that, Bill. Thankfully I have kept 3 original Italeri kits though I would have bought at least 2 more. The Esci (Ertl) version is awkward - I built 2 of them in the 80's, replaced the wheels with Italeri spokes and tires and tried to correct its biggest flaws - anyway, hand off of this (until you are a box art collector!).
Jim, Italeri has/had several trucks with racing trailer in different liveries - some of them included a metal/plastic model of a racing bike: here is Valentino Rossi's 500 cc world championship contender from 2000/2001 (Honda NSR)
Bring back these sold out resin kits - sports cars 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L "Lusso" (Scalecraft or new?) 1969 Lola T70 Mk III B Daytona winner Donohue/Hobbs (Mini Exotics? Fein Design?) 1949 Ferrari 166 MM Le Mans winner Chinetti/Selsdon (sold under UMi, but cast by Paul Fisher)
maybe issue some new cars 1968 Renault 16 TS 1965 Lotus Cortina Mk I 1968 Lamborghini Espada
or finally some (Italian) dream cars 1965 Dino 206 GT berlinetta speciale 1968 Bertone Carabo Alfa Romeo 1969 Alfa Romeo 33/2 coupé speciale 1969 Ferrari 512 prototipo pininfarina 1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero
Adam, this old rustbucket looks that realistic, if you had not shown pics with a key, a brochure or your hand on the roof, I would have thought this model is real!!! Those rusty spots are totally convincing - the whole van is absolutely amazing !!!
