Looks pretty nice! Too bad I'm not a Porsche fan...

Would rather like them to make a full detail 917 or something else more exciting from the Porsche history!

I wish I liked that car. I hate the Carrera GT. Seems like the next one will be the 288 GTO if they keep going with these. That's one I'd be interested in.

Is it mighty impressive kit, imho. Look at scans of instructions here http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10205955.
Great base for super detailed project. I like the car, so got this kit and have no regrets.
But I would agree with others - 1/12 kit of racing car would be much more exciting.

I can see it having a spot next to the Enzo, all they need to do is a nice Aston in 1/12 and I'l be a happy (if broke) man:)

Bring back the Caterhams too.

I have the kit. It's quite impressive. Will be doing something detail-oriented for it for Scale Auto Magazine.

I sure hope Tamiya does the 288 GTO next :sunglasse

I'm not a great Porsche fan either, but out of ALL the road cars they've made, this is the one I like the best. (or at least, the one I DON'T like, the least... if you get me...)
HOWEVER..... It's Tamiya, it's 1/12, it's new -
It's ordered......!!!
UK price is 185-ish which is HALF the price of the similar Enzo kit. (Which I've already got too)
But I have to agree - a 1/12 full detail Aston Martin DBR9 would be bl--dy AMAZING!!
C'mon Tamiya - make one!

Your a Lucky man Bob!!!! Cant wait to see it! Was rather disapointed with their 1:12 Enzo review (not your review), a kit like that needs a multipage feature not a kit review rightup with 3 little photos of the outside!

That's current UK conversion price on the HLJ website (link at the top of this thread)
Postage extra...

That was actually my review in Scale Auto and was for the reissue of the 1/24 scale kit and not the 1/12 scale as noted at the top of the review. I had several people in my club ask about it too and had to explain. There should be an upcoming article of the big kit in the near future.

Bump - anyone else messed with these? I wonder why it doesn't seem like there are any detail up kits like there are for the Enzo.

Enzo is a more popular car and more interesting to detail, especially in the engine bay.
