Well I already have the vastly superior (sorry it is, and always will be -- just compare any Tamiya and Revell AG Ferarris) Tamiya LaFerrari, but sign me up for the Golfs and the Trabant WAGON.

The Trabant wagon looks very similar to a Volvo 240 wagon, a model I wish they would do.

I just wonder about the reason to do 1st gen VW Golfs. I'd like to see some present day VWs.

Can't wait for that GTI. It's a new tool, too. Kind of gives me hope that a BMW 2002 might be in the offing some day...

That is what I'm hoping, too, Jason, bu until then there is a solution in 1/24, though only as a die-cast

(which might be a possibility when there are no resin or plastic alternatives available - at least at affordable prices).

I have the Fabbri/Quattroruote release from ca. 2008/2009 : BMW 1600 ti from 1968 in dark blue with cream interior, which is actually available from white Box in a period typical orange with black interior. Both doors and hoods open, but the gaps on the hoods are hardly visible at all.

Well while there was a 1/25 Rabbit, and Fujimi did a curbside 1st Gen Golf, neither was European -- the internet has shrunk the world, but I can see them wanting to do their own, I imagine these will be strictly German/Euro version cars much like the Beetle kits from this year. 1st Gen Golf is (at the newest) a 30 year old car now, and 38 years since the introduction of the GTI in 1976, and 34 years since the Cabrio first appeared in 1980.

I like the Trabant…well, I like a model of a Trabant wagon...

What is the difference between the Golf and the Rabbit?

It seems ROG is in the process of tooling up new kits of kits that have already been tooled before…Mini, 2CV, Beetle, Rabbit/Golf…not complaining - just kind of interesting. Also, is that front bumper on the convertible from a different year? Or why does it extend back vs. the other version (and Rabbit bumpers)?

Rabbit is what the 1st gen Golf was named in NA. These kits are the European spec--smaller bumpers, round headlights, etc. The differences in the bumpers in the kit illustrations are because they are different model years, I assume....the Mk I Golf had an MCE somewhere in it's run...the GTI was added in '76, the Cabrio in '80.

Yeah especially Tamiya's 458 and F12 just kidding, but seriously I wonder how Mr. T decides which to do? The La Ferrari was an obvious no-brainer.

I think they missed the boat big time when they passed on the 458.

Seems like since the 360 twins Tamiya has focused on the Hyper Car end of the Ferrari line-up. The Enzo, the FXX, now the La Ferrari.

Still waiting to see who's gonna be the brave ones and take on the Ferrari FF...my guess would be Fujimi, but it might be no one at this rate.

That Golf GTi Mk2 was a re-release of an '80s / '90s kit, rather than a new one, so based on the quality of the recent new tooling car kits from Revell AG, it is very likely that the Golf Mk1 kits will be well detailed and engineered.

That looks pretty good! If a kit version is a must-have, then Air Trax do / did a resin BMW of this shape, but I'm not sure exactly which version. However IIRC, it was a transkit to be used with the old Revell BMW 3 series (first gen - E21??) kit.

I think it would have been a better bet for them to make a 458 spider, SLS convertible or Ferrari FF, especially given some of the tooling has already been done for the 458 and SLS.

New tooling of a MkI GTI? Yay. Been eyeing the reissued Tamiya race car, but its pretty pricey for a curbside. . Maybe they can do a Scirocco later, half the work is done.

Absolutely for the 458 spider but not the FF

I'm surprised they didn't do the Porsche 918 being German. I'm surprised it wasn't kitted before laferrari considering its on the road first.

All about licensing, as Revell AG obviously has a current license with Ferrari. Unless I'm forgetting something, I don't think they've kitted a new Porsche (or an old one either for that matter) since the Porsche 911 kits in the 1980s. Fujimi and Tamiya seem to hold the Porsche licensing right now.

Hopefully a 918 is in progress then. The Laferrari is lonely.
