There are probably a dozen or so decal sheets for the M1 Procar from at least 3 different makers. Makes sense, let someone else deal with all the team & sponsor licensing (or lack thereof).

Yes...one site listing says waterslide decals, so maybe it comes with a minimal set.

Welp, speaking as someone nearly dragged under by the MFH Delta Integrale, I'm delighted about the Italeri kit.

If past is prologue, there will be full engine detail at least. If it's like the Fiat 500, there'll be opening doors, operational steering, and working suspension too.

Now MFH is also supposed to have a factory-stock 1/12 Ferrari 365 Daytona coupe on the way.  If Italeri would kindly beat that to market with an announcement of their own...

or nearly ANY 1/12 classic Ferrari really, assuming licensing isn't the issue.

It's ALL of it looking decidedly not bad, though.

Licensing is the issue or Italeri would be walking around printing money reissuing the 250 SWB, 275 NART and whatnot.

I think RoG was supposed to release the 250swb a few years back but for reasons unknown the deal fell through. As cool as the Delta is, I would have been all over a 1/12 Stratos or Miura. The big scale releases are very encouraging and it's great that Italeri is recognizing that adult modelers are willing to pay for big scale kits of unusual subject matter.

Interesting that the 40' container and chassis is going to be on the market as both Italeri and AMT.

MIURA!  Yes, Miura.. that'd be the ticket. 😎

If you feel like shelling out a couple hundred, Otaki/Doyusha made a 1/12 kit of the Stratos (the rally version) back in like the 70's. They aren't bad kits, but have some design quirks that are due to them being designed to be motorized.

Was gonna say, I've had my eye on one or two of those Doyusha kits. You'd still be paying a couple hundred for a new-tool Italeri, but perhaps a smidge less.

Yours, that one? Very nice!

Revell (and in hindsight I blame Hobbico for it) announced that kit around the same time the licensing for Ferrari needed to be renegotiated, and in the end they decided it was too expensive and the 250SWB project went up I'm flames and took the rest of their Ferrari kits with it.

Nope, not mine! Just a picture from Google! It is really nice though!

It is frome a Japanese guy who goes by Pocherman. I've been trying to figure out who he is, but I am affraid he either passed away or just stopped, since he didn't post anything since 20xx.

That's right, I remember looking through his pictures of some other builds he's done since he did quite a few large scale kits.

Wow, I really hope that W 196 kit has some good detail as I'm likely to snatch that up as soon as pre-orders are up

Pretty sure it's the old Protar mold. No. Find old Strombecker W196. Here's old thread.

I would have preferred Italieri invest in a renewal of its Ferrari license or created new kits, because most of these reissues are pretty crude kits, as most of them are from that era. Remember their Porsche 993 models?  They used a bunch of leftover parts from the 964, including the interior and suspension, which was wholly inaccurate for the 993.

Was the Revell supposed to be a new kit or a rebox of the Italeri?

I'm wondering how much of the Revell 300SLR one could use toward updating this kit...  engine, suspension, wheels, etc. It might be worth the effort.

Rebox of Italeri. They have had over the years a working relationship of doing that with their large truck line.
