We take a peek in the box of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 from Aoshima, and are duly impressed.

Rims with the attachment points on the inside. Oooo! How about the rest of the chrome pieces? One of the bad things about chromed parts...attachments points are really thick and...in a bad spot.

Got ta LOVE a 'Gini!!

Mike, the other "alloy plated" parts are for the exhaust and have the attachment points small and hidden.

The only chrome parts are the side view mirrors (ok there) and front and rear light housings. The front lights will be painted black with the exception of the bulbs, so no problem. The rears have them in glue areas where the chrome will need to be scraped off. Aoshima does a good job with this stuff...they actually think!

Thanks Sven, build won't start until the upgrade set is reviewed, and I'm still debating on a color. Thinking yellow since I have yellow laying around

I go to look at a review for a model kit, and end up leaving with an order for the kit and some take out

I have mainly build 60's US cars, but have for sometime been wanting to build something modern. This could very well be it. Thanks for the review.
