What supercar kit would u like to have?
Posted by JeroenM3 on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 9:53 AM

Yes i know there was a thread for this, but the last post was made in 2012 i found through the search option, and as im a HUGE supercar fan, id thought lets see what others would like to see. Im just going to post the ones id like to make myself. I have tried looking for a few and couldnt find them if they are produced id like to hear it please (preferrably with a link to buy it)

Here goes my list:

  • Pagani Zonda (prefferably the Cinque)
  • Spyker Zagato
  • BMW E46 M3 (ok not really a supercar, but one of my favorite all time cars)
  • Koenigsegg's
  • Maserati MC12
  • Mercedes CLK-GTR (road version)
  • De Macross Epique gt1 (respect if you know what car this is without using a search engine first)
  • Gumpert Apollo
  • RUF CTR3

I can think of many more, but lets see what cars you can think of ;)

To be honest, most of the modern supercars don't do anything for me.  One I saw recently (if it counts) is the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake, and I would love to have a kit of it. As for older supercars, most of those that interest me have been kitted. One car though, of which I would really like to see an accurate and full detailed kit is the Mercedes Benz C-111. The C-111 was an engineering and design study and was not a production car, so maybe it doesn't fit your post, but it sure was super (and gorgeous).

There are still a number of 60s-80s high end sports cars that I like and have not been kitted, but I wouldn't class them as supercars per se.

I'd like to see more of Aston Martin's lineup in 1/24, regardless of material. No 2001-05 Vanquish? No DB10 or DB11? Some of the most famous modern Aston Martin performance cars are totally unavailable, but we can get a 1/24 Cygnet...

Cygnet!! Haha!!! It's just crazy what they do and don't do. 4 companies made Citroen 2cv kits but no-one thought to make a Triumph TR6 or a Morris Minor.

I'd love a Bugatti Veyron and a McLaren MP4-12C (and a decent F1,can't believe we waited 20 years for the POC Fujimi gave us) and a Maserati 250F too please!

There are plenty of F1GTR kits made by AOSHIMA, and than i mean the different liveries that the car was driven in,  but also as a road version, i just got mine in the mail 2 days ago, looking forward to build that :)

It's a shame that Aoshima didn't do the F1 short tails, I think between Fujimi releasing their very inferior short and long tails, that Aoshima probably didn't make much if any profit on their long tail. I far prefer the styling of the short tail, and I took way too much time making a quartet of Fujimi F1's look half decent. 

A Bugatti Chiron would be nice...of course there are already two 1/24 diecast models of it and no plastic kit on the horizon...

Thats for alot of cars, im a huge fan of the Pagani Zonda model's, they are made as die casts, but as far as my knowledge goes, not as a plastic model.... Same goes for the E46 M3, and alot of other nice cars sadly...

So i've just been browsing the heroboy website, and found quite a few cool models, although u must admit they are VERY expensive...

1 of those kits is a F1GTR, and from what i can see they are shorttails instead of the longtails like AOSHIMA makes...

They have alot of cool cars at Model Factory Hiro, its just the prices are skyhigh in my opinion...
