Thanks for the comments.
The price wasn't to bad at just over $750 for car and spare motor.The later models are bit too pricey
The car is just on 60cm long(23.5'' in the old scale)
here is a photo with a couple of 1/12 Tamiyas

that looks incredable, does the kit come painted or do you have to do it yourself?

did you modify or increase the detail with yours.
I have one too, that I'm building for my old man but I'm not happy with the wiring harness they give you so I'm redoing that for starters

Icon was supposed to follow this up with a 1:8 HT Monaro - wonder if it will ever be done?

Hey, love these kits, I have built four but all for other people Crying or Very sad the first one was built straight from box, the next I re-made the plug leads and detail painted some items, the last two I dismantled chassis and removed seams from exhaust etc, painted sway bars, shocks etc, like you would on a regular kit, the accuracy and value of these cars makes it all worthwhile..... Enjoy!
