Conclusion

I’m happily surprised with this HW Elite release, as the detailing is really fantastic. I don’t know why they made the decision to use some decals/tampoes/stickers, but if those had been fixed, along with the brake problem, it would’ve been an almost perfect model. As of now, it’s still leaps and bounds better than the other HW releases, and if you like the 1:1, pick one of these up, as they were going fast at the local store. In a span of around 1 hour, the store sold 3!

Summary and Scoring

  Exterior
Very, very good, damn those stickers though.
 

8.5

 
  Wheels and Tires
Rims could be better, brakes are nice but wrong, undercarriage is boring (not HW’s fault though).
  7.0  
 

Interior
Fantastic interior, but what’s with the passenger seat?

  9.0  
 

Engine
Engine looks really good, on par with most AA’s.

  7.0
