I agree with Grumpy - a very nice review.

Also Kudos to ICM for an extremely well done model kit.
(Rubber tires not withstanding!)

Also a mild criticism: Sadly the doors and the boot have not been cast separately to allow them to be posed in the open position. Not a deal breaker on such a lovely kit as I think the doors can be cut open easily enough. Also I agree with Darren's remark about the lack of posable front wheels. However, here again, I often just partially cut, bend and then re-glue the front steering to permanently pose the vehicle in one turned position or another being careful regarding wheel alignment and camber.

Cheers!

very nice kit and subject.

funny where our heads go - I saw the VH on the number tag and thought 'Australian reg #, why is it left hand drive?!'
no - wait - wat?
