With all the recent problems HD had with their kits, I have mixed feelings about this, but its great to finally at least have a kit of this. I think I'm definitely getting this one.

Looks tempting.Its smart of Hobby Design to make kits of subjects that major kit makers will avoid.Has anyone seen a WIP or compleated MP4/4C?

Moin Moin,

on EBAY you´ll find this Aston since many days as a diecast.......

I dunno, a 1:27.3 scale model might look a little funny compared to your 1:24 collection....
Looks like a "full kit" so will be expensive

That diecast looks crap... hobby design's one-77 looks very sharp, i never doubt their workmanship, but their casting quality sucks :loser:

To be fair, 'Mondo' do a really nice 1/18 die-cast model of this car in kit form that can be had for less that £20 at present.
It may not be as 'good' (VERY doubtful!) as the resin model here, but it's a million times better than the die-cast one mentioned above.
I bought the Mondo kit and C/F'd it, BMF'd it and re-painted the interior.
It's amazing!
At the money HLJ or whoever will want for this resin kit, don't bother!
Get the Mondo 1/18 kit and spend a bit of time on it.
An absolute gem at the money!

This one looks pretty nice to me , but it will be overpriced. The 1/24th Speedy diecast does look cheap. I would guess we will see this car again in another 1/24th diecast. I hope Welly's does it.

Experience... Ive had multible problems with my Lambo LP640 Transkit & ive ended up with 3 of them, & only 1 was close to fitting properly. But that is a transkit i guess. & others do post their problems with HD products.
But hey I aplaud them for doing some great subjects, hopefully theyve turned a corner & this is a good one!

Quality is high enough. I'm satisfied.
The total price with shipping to Russia was 1510HKD (195$).

The dashboard is symmetry. You can fill in the left pockets and glue the dash and column to the "right" side.
Quick dry fitting.

Back to scale. Absolutely correct 1/24. I checked it by measuring. Comparison with DBS from Tamiya.

Of course, the front and the rear patterns are different, and correspond to the real tires. But, unfortunately, the kit has left side tires only. On the right side they will have wrong rotation direction. Inner sides of the tires have bad quality, therefore there is no chance to turn they to the right rotation.

It's definitely a bodge!
This is an ASTON MARTIN!
It's a BRITISH car - and no, I'm not interested in the 'foreign' money that might be in the company - it's BRITISH!
WHY do kit manufacturers insist on making kits that are ALWAYS LHD???!!!! Grrrrrrr!
Tamiya are just as bad. The amazing DB9 kit - LHD!
For goodness sake, make the kits represent the country they come from!
It really can't have ANYTHING to do with the percieved market - most of these kits are very expensive! They are aimed at MODELLERS who want accuracy and aren't interested in having a kit that just 'looks right' in the major selling markets! (Japan!)
Ferrari, Lambo, Maserati, Porsche - yes, LHD.
Aston Martin, Jaguar, Lotus - RHD!!!!
Is it such a problem?

All I want is the vehicles configured as if they drove out of the factory and onto the road, not as if they drove from the factory to a truck, then loaded onto a ship, unloaded, through customs, another truck, a dealer, then onto the road.

Astons, Lotus, MG's etc = rhd, corvettes and the like LHD. Ultimately it would be fantastic if the manufacturers included both options in a kit, but thats just fantasy.

My point isn't what should or shouldn't be in a kit.
My point is that I thought this was a modelling forum.

We scratch build all sorts of bits to detail old kits. I would hope that switching the position of the steering on a dash that is symmetrical wouldn't be too difficult a task for the regulars here.

Good point, so lets have all kits of cars manufactured in those nations that drive on the correct side of the road produced in RHD, and the rest in LHD.

No problems for those in other markets to mutilate their kits to suit the local conditions.

drunken monkey
11-18-2012, 02:33 PM
No.
The correct solution is to include both dash parts as options like they used to go old Tamiya kits.
Your suggestion ignores that cars sold in more than one market has steering correct for one market but incorrect for another.
In my opinion, the only time when only one dash option should be in the kit is when there was only ever one dash option.

I agree with what you are saying - It's just frustrating that new kits don't arrive 'correct' in the first place.
I actually converted the Tamiya DB9 to RHD and posted a detailed conversion thread elsewhere about it. Most enjoyable to do.
Have fun with the One-77. (I added high-detail to the Mondo 1/18 Die-cast kit and enjoyed it immensely. It's a FAR more detailed version than the resin kit you're looking at - opening doors, engine, etc. etc.)

No, I have a lot of other Ferrari kits in the stash that post date yours, so I don't understand your argument?

That's because you are trying to argue.

That picture is of a kit that never existed.
At the time it was made, there were maybe 5-6 kits of road Ferrari in production.
Hasegawa 328 and 348 were discontinued.
Fujimi Enthusiast kits were most people's dreams but I think their 348 was still available.
Revell only had the shoddy 360 and not half bad Enzo to go with Tamiya's 360, Enzo and Testarossa.

No new Aston Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi, Mercedes Benz or anything else European; just endless re-boxes.

My point is simple.
Model kit builders have never had it so good when it comes to range and up to date cars.
You can choose to whinge about small things like the "wrong" dash if you want and you do seem to want to, or you can do a little bit of modding/modelling to get what you want.

One is a waste of time and energy and doesn't get you what you want; the other is not and does.

Nice red herring there, but my point stands. If only one option is included in the kit, it should be that of it's country of manufacture.

It's not a whinge, I'm not argueing for arguements sake, I'm stating my opinion and will continue to do so in an effort to improve the breed.

There are certainly cars where it is easy to "flip" the dash by doing some modelling, but there are others where it's really not, because it's asymmetrically curved and an integrated, organic shape. In this day and age of computer aided design, though, it's trivially easy for the dash part to to be mirrored in digital form. Would it really add significantly to the cost of an already-premium Tamiya or Fujimi kit to include both left and right hand drive dashes as an option? All the other parts are the same, after all...

I don't think it's fair to make kits according to the origins of the car.
I prefer the idea of having kits with the dash correct for the market where the kit is sold, not where the real is originated from.

After all, an Aston Martin destined for the US will have a left hand dash, just as a Ferrari destined for the UK will have a right hand dash.

Depends on if the kit is engine detailed and how much of the engine bay you can see.
In the classic cars where there is less shrouding, you would be able to see clearly the steering and brake booster and whatnot and having alternate steering would mean new firewall and then by extension, front steering parts.
Compared to say a Ferrari 599 where all you see is the intake plenum, well, you don't really need to have the steering parts on show.

Of course, some car model builders like to have a complete as possible model and so even if it can't be seen, they will prefer to have them there.

We may just have to agree to disagree, I want my Astons with the wheel on the correct side, the Fazzas can have it on the left:)

So, apart from the dash and control column stalks, what else would need to be swapped?
