I am much more concerned with the overall "look" of a car and not measuring it down to the last millimeter. I'm certain my ultra builtup GT40 has many glaring errors, if you measured it with a ruler, but thats not why I model a specific car. It's the essense of the car that matters.

Hi Mick,

once more what I alredy said: A kit with many etched and resin parts, long awaited by lots of modelers.
Whats not satisfying to ME is the balance between left and right side.
Other things that I mentioned are depending of the modeler of the mastermodel: One sees curves and details in a different way than another.

What I mentioned is, what I will change if I (have the time and the mood to) build this kit, than in MY opinion the model comes closer to the original car.

Everybody has the liberty to correct these things I mentioned, only few of them or some more or just build it out of the box

I just got it!
And it is really nice. much over my expectations. Perfect p/e parts, nice decals and good resin parts. So after my last renaissance kit (360 Modena transkit) it is really good and the quality is much better.

Re: Aston Martin DBR-9 (1:24) by Renaissance - Kit Review

Ive just ordered the kit from Strada and i look forward to it, flawed or not. I love this car and its the only kit availiable for 1/24 so i can live with the oversights. Also i got the kit for $125 at Strada and in my mind this is not a bad price for a full resin kit in 1/24. Im also getting the SP Murcie R-GT trans-kit and the Quik Skins Audi A4 full kit. Ill let you know what i think when they arrive.
