Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador Just Arrived

Recommended Posts

Here are the photos of what is in the Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador kit. I haven’t examined for sink marks or tree connection issues as yet. The kit has a lot more in it than the Fujimi, including metal pins for the doors and (I assume) hood as they all open. The optional PE set sure looks like it was done by KA models (who also do the Fujimi ones). But I haven’t checked that out either as yet.

Here is what is in the kit.

Who would have thought that Aoshima would become the Japanese model company to beat these days... just look at those crazy door hinge pins!

I've got my paint coming from Scalefinishes. Arancio Argos is the color I chose:

Same color I am going to use, and getting it from the same place :lol:

I am not sure if I am going to use the kit wheels, or go aftermarket

Like they say, great minds think a like ;)

This is what I would like to do with mine

I agree on casting the tires. What aftermarket wheels are available for the lambo? I have looked but havent come across anything. Jada makes a "players" lambo or "big time" version (cant remember what they call it but I know it's jada for sure) of the murcielago that has some really nice deep dish wheels that I have thought about hijacking for my lambo build.

Thanks Gerry, one more question. Does the PE set come with model?

No, needs to be ordered separately. I also have the Fujimi Aventador (sorry I got it given the Aoshima) and Hobby Design PE for it. I will eventually explore how good the PE aimed for the Fujimi works or complements the Aoshima set

I think its HLJ has a P/E set for it around $10 or so, that is one of cheaper ones, I think the one Gerry bought was around $50 IIRC for it.

Aoshima's PE set that exotics has, should retail for between $20-25us.

Dan

Dan, you are correct, I thought the one he bought was a different one, my mistake

this is the one from Aoshima

Here is the one that cost about that the same as the kit

I can't seem to find anyone who sells the "Japan Only" full engine version. I've e-mailed HLJ and they didn't have any info.

I wish Aoshima offered just the full engine sprues as an upgrade for us. That gives us the option.
