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.

HLJ sells the "Japan Only" version, it's the only one they sell.

Yup. That's what I got from HLJ. Think the Japanese kit is number 7 in the plain white box, where the international version is number 8 in the mostly green Italian flag-bordered package.

Bear in mind that the "full engine" is still simplified, about 12 pieces with no representation of the sump or transmission; probably drops in where the one-piece insert goes in the international one. The exhaust manifolds and valve covers uncompromised by draft angle are probably the big selling points.

Even with its body sink marks and its limited use of sliding molds, it's still got a decisive edge over that other Aventador kit. Factor in the price advantage, and Brand X pretty well gets murdered here.

Will you be getting the HRE "Vintage" Wheels from FG Models??

Nope. I don't actually like those wheels.

That is the one I ordered from HLJ and the PE set was a separate item. There was no option.
