Interested!! What is in the box? How much did you pay, if you don't mind my asking. I have high hopes for these kits, especially hope they improved the wheels...

Nice! Where did you order from? And what colors are you thinking of?

Tower Hobby (Hobbico's mail order). I had a pre-order since February. Was notified late last Thursday they were in.

Color choices are open now. I have several Cobra Colors Ferrari colors remaining and some ScaleFinishes as well. I saw a picture of an Aperta in dark blue with ivory (crema) interior that looked interesting. But the palette is still open.

I also have the F12 Berlinetta (Fujimi) preordered from HLJ as well. We'll see when that pops up.

The SA Aperta can be specified in any colour, any trim. From an article I read owners of the Aperta are able to pick & choose everything from anywhere & anything! You can actually have denim seats!!! Wood grain interior, CF or ali accents, Purple Swede trimed seats. Not that anyone would go to that extreme, Jeremy Clarkson excluded...

The only mistake I've seen so far is that the Aperta doesn't have the brake disc covers like the GTO, but I'm sure a customer could order it that way, and I bet the detail sets to follow will solve the problem.

I don't recollect seeing a photo of such. I agree with you that it may have been available. The air plenum is the same as the GTO based on the photos I've seen. AFtermarket PE for the 599 would rectify that.
