What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

I didn't purchase the Veneno because I was under the impression the kit was full curbside? This new version you say has an engine? Is it worth buying now? What is your opinion of the kit on a whole??

Cheers & thanks, Cliff

There are two versions of it. One is a Curbside "Plus" - similar to their McLaren F1 where it has a tub with an engine-ish blob inside and some top parts to finish it off. It actually wasn't that bad, considering how much of the engine you can actually see when it's assembled. The newer one (which was announced literally the same week they released the curbside one - I talk about scuzzy Revell moves, THAT was a scuzzy move) is the same kit, now with the soap dish and engine blob replace with a 19 piece engine assembly. If nothing else having a separate engine certainly makes it worlds easier to paint and detail. But much like the curbside kit, you're going to bury the majority of it, much like any Super Car of the past 10-15 years the entire chassis pan is just that, a flat, aero-tuned pan that goes front to back. The kit itself is much like the real car - a pile of boards nailed together at odd angles. It follows their Aventador and Reventon with the doors either opened or closed, but not functional from the box.

The curbside box has the car "driving" from left to right, and the w/Engine kit as seen above is "driving" right to left. Pretty sure that Japanese part probably says something like "Now with Engine SUCKERS!!" too. I believe the price difference between the two is like $7.

I got my B-N-L Resins Rockwell axles for my Ice T build, some rims for my CJ7 build, and some 4x4 wheel sleeves (use them on my So-Real Boggers that I have. I have the Rockwells gluing now, so I can proceed with my build.

This is a highway robbery eBay purchase. Got both of these for less than $20.

This Fujimi Q is one of the "rare" versions that actually has LHD parts & U.S. decals. I've often figured this kit existed in some form since the wiper attachment area was separate from the windshield so you could put LHD wipers on it, but the past 2-3 reissues of this kit have been JDM only with no "silent" parts carryover. Bought the lot mostly for this after getting an Aoshima Q45 and found the LHD parts on the box was just a SATCO bloborific resin "dashboard" without any other parts to convert it to LHD.

This Cima has been SATCO'd -- it has one of their awful LUMP 'O Resin LHD dashes, but no LHD wipers, Infiniti decals, etc. That's fine I wanted it as a JDM Cima anyways.

I hear ya, I did my first one at around 13 years old, came out pretty good for my skills at the time, no idea where it ended up. I also have another version of this kit, has parts molded in pink!

my original build of this kit, I painted the body white and used the kit decals, from what I remember, it looked pretty good [for the time/skill set].

Got an AMT '59 Mercury bumper/grille/headlights from eBay; the headlights are coming off to be used on my Jo-Han '59 Rambler wagon (the hooded part is a much better match to the real thing) and the grille pattern will probably go into my '59 Ranchero as a close match for a '59 Meteor unit.
