I realize this is an OLD, OLD post, but I was hoping to get a couple clarifications from you.
I have been away from the hobby quite sometime and only recently returned early 2018. I picked up one of these kits and according to the info I have gathered, Studio 27 claims it's a new tooling. This kit was released in 2002. I witnessed Davy Jones win with this real car at Mid Ohio, that after a short stay in a gravel pit to boot. I have a few pictures, mainly with a long lens and not real focused, also NOT the car I was there to see at the time. When you stated that a few things were not added or missing from the Bud Light version as opposed to the European based Silk Cut version would you mind elaborating on just what they were other than the roof "hump" and side exhaust tips? Considering the amount of cash I paid for this kit, I would really like to nail it best I could and anything you can recall that may need some care would be greatly appreciated. Your version is a real beauty and I cannot see anything out of order from the #2 when I saw it displayed at Mid-Ohio.
