Review by Geoff Coughlin (April 2018)

Manufacturer’s completed model
Take a look at these photos of Revell’s completed model – nice, isn’t it? We are planning a full build of our own and you’ll find that in SMN over the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can feast your eyes on this contemporary monster! Check out too the photos at the end of my review – some ‘supercar’ or what!?
The Revell Kit
This is a recent release from Revell, having its roots back in 2015 when first released and it’s nice to see it back in production once more, sporting a new paint scheme and number plate decals for 9 countries. This is a great feature as you can personalise your model for whatever country you like, within reason!
Although assembly for this model is made easier with a ‘click’ system, there’s good levels of detail making the model one that should have wide appeal.
Box and contents
The Revell box artwork is sleek and appealing although it is designed in their traditional end-opening style.
Let’s go inside
The kit is generally well moulded with the main body chassis moulded in a mid-blue with a hint of metallic effect built in, just in case you didn’t want to paint it. Remaining main parts are moulded in black with brushed alloy wheels.
This kit doesn’t have too many parts at all with no engine to speak of.
No distortion on the main parts – the initial impression is one of parts that will go to make up a nice, simple representative model in 1:24 scale. Parts on our sample are clean and free from excess flash.
The interior is simply equipped, much like the real thing to be honest. Careful study of any reference material will enable you to add some extras like a seat belt/harness plus some other smaller details.
Decals are supplied for the instruments and this will add a lot to the interior look of the vehicle.
