All of the "basic" Fujimi 250 GTOs are the same, the only difference is the decal sheet. There was also a kit that came with a fret of K.A. Models Photoetch, and another that had turned aluminum wheel sleeves and P/E spokes. Fujimi also at one point sold that wheel set separately. At the current moment in time only the red box/red car kit is currently in the catalog.
The only difference in KIT contents is the OAS has pad printed drag slicks. Beyond that the OAS is molded in white, comes in the bigger box with all the Art Series debris. The Teal one comes in a regular sized box, that is a white background (the OAS is a black background). Without sounding intentionally mean if people can't tell the difference between the bigger than Tamiya OAS box and a regular sized Round2 box labeling "Molded in Teal" probably isn't gonna help anyone either.
The 250 GTO has never been part of the Enthusiast Series. There are a couple of racing variations that are OOP at this point that tend to sell for more. Otherwise it's just people miss listing the kit trying to overcharge for it. The only Ferraris in the actual Enthusiast Series are the 288 GTO, the versions of the Daytona, and the Dinos ( arguably not a Ferrari in some circles)
Fujimi's is the newest (tooled in 2008), and arguably most accurate one available surpassing the older RevellAG kit. It's not quite an Enthusiast Series kit, but it is 180+ parts and full detail. If you self-import from HobbyLink Japan or Hobby Search it's running about $23.
Mine has a noticeable rise behind the passenger door, so I guess the roof is depressed rather than their being a hump in the roof. The window trim on the passenger side roof is also all wavy. At least you didn't get one of the ones short shot on the passenger's side inner fenders where the entire area from the bottle (not sure if that W.W. Fluid or Coolant) down to the radiator brace is AWOL. As far as the heads and valve covers being molded together that's how the Monogram G-Bodys were cast, just part of that 1986 in 2016 flavor that makes me shake my head.
It's there, but in typical Revell "good nuff" fashion they molded the entire thing on one vertical plane like a set of airplane throttles, whereas in real life the stick on the left is "regular" auto transmission and is bent out towards the driver a bit and when in park is significantly further forward than the other two sticks.
I love that shade of green! The reason this kit is constantly rising in cost is RevellAG forever changed the molds when they made the Convertible version. So there's never gonna be another made unless they were to go do some substantial retooling. Unlike that ESCI Transit Van which Italeri is reissuing this summer.
20160430_150800 by James Duff, on Flickr 3 Mercs are for my substantial GT3 decal collection, the '05 Toyota Crown Athlete finally completes the "collection" of these twin pair kits that Aoshima has released 5 sets of since 2003. This one had been avoiding me for about 18 months now. Lastly the ICM Opel was on sale last weekend for $13 (yes THIRTEEN) at Squadron. I've had the Convertible version for awhile and I've always thought the steel roofed version had a period hot rod, or LS powered modern street rod lurking in all that Ukrainian molded German Das Auto.
The tires are the worst part of this kit being the bias ply tires out of the '70 Cuda. A real head scratcher if you ask me. Sure they didn't have a tire in inventory to use for this kit, but considering there's at least one other version of the kit coming and the potential of doing other 1980/1990s cars down the road (a Grand Prix to round out the G-Bodys would be nice for example) investing a couple of bucks into a new appropriate tire tooling would have been a smart investment in the long run.
