    Round 2 must’ve known there is a hood fit issue. There’s a note on the instructions to sand on the radiator cross member to lower it

    Yeah, it's raised too.

  2. Been waiting on this to come out for awhile.

    I had nothing to say but good things about the model, to start.  However, when it came time to put the chassis on, there came a fit issue.  It was a struggle to get it in right and the front never did line up quite right.  There's a bit of a gap.  I also found out that the hood is too short!  It needs to be just a little bit longer to fit correctly.  So I had to push it forward a bit and leave a small gap.  However, it doesn't line up with the lines of the car either.  You can see that in the pics.

  3. Came across one a few months back, but couldn't afford the price.  I fell in love with the design and knew I wanted one.  So, when I got the unforeseen money of the stimulus I knew it was the first car on my list to buy.

    The kit itself is not bad.  I just don't like that some pieces are molded in black.  I'd love to get another one so I can do a different color.  I don't think the white color does it justice.  It doesn't show the lines of the car that well.  I saw one in a nice blue color when looking them up online to see what combinations they had. 

    It is a really nice kit for an old Revell kit.

    Great looking AAR. I always liked the hood design on this model. Not sure of the objections you have on this, it looks fine in the photos. 

    IDK, just doesn't look to the right proportions when compared to this one.

    I'm thinking it's narrower and the ride height is higher compared to this one.  Come to think of it; I don't think the back tires were raised.  AARs and T/As are supposed to have raised back ends.

    You did a great job.  Is it old mold (other brand)?  It seems like Testor's did mostly reboxes of other US, Japanese and European models.

    Probably.  I think it was a rebrand of Revell or Monogram

  6. Got this to add to my exotic collection.  I always loved the Daytona.  It's one of the better looking Ferraris.  This kit was a little on the pricey side, but since I got my stimulus I decided to get a few rare kits.  I also wanted to go with the coupe to show off the design.  For an old Testors kit I have mostly good things to say about it.  The kit was actually pretty easy to build and came out great.  My only complaint is that it's molded in Red, black, and silver.
