haven't had the urge to buy a new kit for a while but this one might have to find it's way onto my shelf.

I saw that yesterday on Hobby Search and posted it in the discussion about the Hobby Design resin street car version coming out soon. Hobby Design really should pay more attention to their customers wants and needs.

I love that manufacturers are coming out with so many awesome GT machines as of late. :biggrin:

Now all we need is a good set of Mclaren MP4/12C GT3 Gulf decals and a photoetch detail set. I am sure Studio 27 will do the decals. I do feel sorry for Hobby Design but they should have figured someone would do the car in 1/24th plastic/diecast sooner or later.

It's kind of ironic, and sad, that there was so much love for the McLaren F1 but it was only done in resin and diecast(street version 1/24)...and the 12C is getting the plastic treatment so soon after it's introduction.

I would love the Gulf livery and some photo-etch. If not Studio 27, then I'm sure other companies like Tabu Design, Shunko Models, Scale Production, DecalDoc, etc. will make an assortment of different liveries.

It's a real long shot but I wonder if the Fujimi version will feature open scissor type doors? Now that would be awesome in my book. :iceslolan

Looks perfect. Only the rims are the old one. The 2012 version looks different. Here my photo from the german GT Masters.

Just preordered mine :)
Does anyone know a good decal source? I would like to build the Nick Heidfeld version of the 24h Nürburgring.

Who knows, decals seem to be coming slow for the BMW Z4 GT3.. but I'm sure eventually we'll be hip deep in decals for both kits.

Hope so :)
I recently got my "Stuck³" Gallardo decals + transkit from last years race.
God knows when I will have the time to put all that together :D

:iagree:

Where are they? Although the z4 without decals and m colors looks great.

Definitely you are a lucky guy, FOLA...:runaround:

You have a good friendship circle, and principally you have a great God-given talent...:worshippy

As a simple mortal, I have to wait for Fujimi version patiently, and I must have a good money to spend on decal versions...:crying:

Yeap, me too!!!!

Even thought you chose a much more difficult and expensive way, I have to admit.... Fola, you certainly did a very very nice job so far! Keep the good work!

How much will it cost these decal sheets and the shipping to Brazil ??? Do you have a list of them ??? Can you answer me on PM ???

Bewdy mates!.

Just ordered two kits and some PE for this.
Now need some decals.
It's an impressive machine. Didn't grab me at first, but the GT3 version and the Documentary on how they make it has swayed me. Awesome piece of machinery!

Cheers
