Lamborghini Huracan Performante, Aoshima, 1/24

Recommended Posts

A generally nice kit from Aoshima, but there are a couple of things that need fixing shapewise. Aoshima has moulded some strange pinched shapes at the front edge of the doors, and at the top of the rear flanks there's a sharp wall on the kit bodyshell that doesn't exist on the real thing. The back end is also a real dog to get together, and KEEP together as you try to get the body over the chassis. This one was built to represent a real one I see around here every now and then, which is a bit more elegantly turned out than the usual bright Lamborghini colour options!

Nicely put together Matt, and it sounds like it wasn't an easy build. You have done a fine job on it, and the colour is far more subtle than bright orange or gold-plated! The only Aoshima model that I have built is a Mitsubishi Pajero Metaltop Wide XR-II, also in 1:24 scale, and it matches the vehicle which is my daily drive.... a Mitsubishi Pajero 2.8TD SWB MKII.

Thanks very much for the kind comments, everyone. It’s really only the back end that’s a pain, and with luck the notes in my build thread will help someone else to learn from my mistakes! The colour is stunning on the 1:1, and I think using the real paint does it justice, though it’s hard to photograph to reproduce the shade and richness accurately. I am very pleased with how the alterations to the body to accurize the shape came out, and those you CAN appreciate in the photos. 

Thanks again!

All the best,

Matt

Very nice. I love Lamborghinis and that color is really nice. It doesn't scream out like a red or orange, but it still stands out in its own right.
