just received this interesting info from Hobby design.
they just finished the TK for the SLR 722 GT, imho the nicest version ever of the mclaren mercedes slr.
I took a TK from ebay some yrs ago (think a clone of the Meko),but was missing in decal sheet that I redraw by myside.

Also the Hamann Volcano is a cool version,surely less boring than standard versions from tamiya.
From pics seems they did a nice work, with a lot of PE parts and a full rollcage (I look mostly at the version I like more..the Gt :iceslolan)but also the hamann livery is pretty cool.
This Tk has a nice roll cage inside and the main parts to convert the tamiya kit.the resin seems really well moulded.
I love these badboy versions.. :tongue:

Yeah, lots of great products, but they struggle with quality. Resin shrinkage, sometimes inaccurate parts, etc. HD would be just grand if they fixed the issues!

I've got that 722GT trans Kit in my stash. Its a nice trans kit let down on my one by a warped bonnet. I haven't been able to square it up and am worried a replacement may warp over time as well. The best option I'm seeing is to just modify the Tamiya bonnet to replicate the Hobby Design one.

yes,probably is the best choiche.also the Meko tk I had suffered the same problem. asked for a replacement and arrived...warped again:(
Suspect it is due to different temperatures they have sending resin via airmail.when they are so thin,it can happens.
just my 2 cents.

Lovegt40, you built the 722GT? Is somewhere a WIP to see?
