That Lamborghini Miura looks sharp.  Is the kit any good?

Well that's actually a Jota (although they call it "Miura Jota", but imho that's wrong). The Miura released by Italeri around 2 years ago (with the yellow car on the box) is  the old ESCI kit which is totally out-of-proportion in the door-area. Compare that to a Hasegawa kit and it's pretty obvious that it's just a very bad kit. AFAIK there has not been a Jota by Esci so there is hope that this could be an Airfix kit, for example. I would stick to Hasegawa anyway, Miura and Jota are goods kits from them and easily available...

The 300SL Gullwing is probably Italeri's own kit.  Which hasn't been available for a while, and according to Internet Gullwing fans, is the best 1/24-25 kit of that car.  It was first released in the late '80s or early '90s, based off Italeri's 300SL roadster.  The Heller kit dated from about 1979. 

I recently got a package deal on 2 of the Heller Gullwing kits on eBay for a good price.  They don't have the space-frame detail of the AMT 1/25 kit, which is OK. I want to build a barn find, and I may drop one of the engines into a hot rod or something.

Caveat emptor. As I’ve mentioned before, the Italeri Gullwings in any scale are based on the roadster, which has more pronounced fenders and a larger grille than actual Gullwings. In 1/16, the Minicraft version has a more accurate body shape. The Italeri roadster kits are very accurate except for the windshield shape.

I want that Revell (ex-Aurora) 250. Maybe the Italeri kit, if I can find one. I'd rather have the unloved oldies, rather than a new super kit.

I have an Aurora 250 parts car if you are interested.
