Still not sold on this 25th Anniversary Countach! I love the early cars through the 1988 model and own several from different makers, but I've never thought any of these 'add-ons' looked very nice on the 1989 version, am I the only one? This 1:43 doesn't help matters to my eyes :oops:

That's cool Scott! If you look closely, 3 doors, sort of like your Element :P

These Russian/Eastern Bloc cars are great, but good thing I can resist ;)

Green does it for me too. Colour scheme looks just like an old Southdown (local company) bus.

That's funny, the reason I like the red better is when I was growing up, our trams, trolleys and buses were painted in those exact colors. BTW, I think I might have the Southdown bus by Corgi... :mrgreen:

Guess who is reputed to have designed the 'bodykit' for the Anniversary Countach..... He went on to set up a very successful business producing exquisite supercars..... Give up? it was Horatio Pagani whilst working for Lamborghini!

I've yet to be convinced on any Premium X models of cars that i know. This Elan does little to improve that situation. Just looks too tall and dumpy

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I like the looks of the 1:1 a lot more than the 1:43 but I think more pictures of the model are needed.

I would think that if the top comes off on the Lotus, the model would look much better.

The model looks like it's been in an accident and welded back up badly. I'm with you Andy it just looks looks very off.

X2 . Compare the model to the reflection in the glass it is really off in the windscreen rake. Keep my old Maitso 1/40 from the Shell Collection for a while I think. It can't be any worse! Ian

I've got the Shell 1:40 too. I note that Premium X are doing red, green and yellow in roof-off form according to a 'The Diecast Company website". Shame they're resin.
