Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

It's great that you have listened again and made changes, but it leaves me in two minds now about buying KITT, knowing that there are corrected versions on the way.

Will the Super Elite and Heritage KITTs be based on the corrected mould, or are these changes exclusive to KARR?

How can the colour look cheap? It's just black paint?

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Thank you for the high-res photos. You can see some very nice detailing in them - they fixed the wiper blades from the prototype, there's mesh in the vents behind the front wheels, indicator repeaters are plastic parts and not just tampo prints, mats in the foot wells etc. It looks like a superb mod...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Thanks for posting the pics - is there any way to view them at a larger size? 1:18 looks very good overall, just the wheels that are a little odd. The 1:43 seems to be mis-shapen though, and a red decal for the scanner is a little disappointing compared to the Aoshima 1:43s. I guess everyone though ...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

This is still the prototype model - it says on the HW Elite website that these are "Deco Master Pictures - Not Final Images". I wouldn't expect huge changes - these are due out in about 13 weeks, so they're probably being produced now to ship before Xmas. Nice shot from the front though, w...

Paint the rims with Artists Gouache - it's thick water colour paint. If you get abit messy, you just leave it to dry and then wipe it away with a damp Q-tip or tissue. Should you ever want to reverse it, you *should* be able to, as it's water based. Might just have to be VERY patient in doing so tho...

I've only modified the rims on mine - I'm happy with the rest as it is. The new scanner does look good, but I'm not paying more on the light than I did for the model! I might try the red film over the scanner though - we'll see. Does anybody know anything more about this KITT replica, or have any mo...

I generally tend to use the preview button, and it's been pressed at least once almost every day since I got the car on December 5th. Still on the first set of batteries.

Nice work on the foglights.

I've just cleaned my KITT and put him away - picked up an AUTOart display case yesterday at ModelZone Bluewater for £8 in their sale, so he's clean and protected from dust now. :)

When I get my roadcars I look for all sorts of faults - scratches, decals applied straight, wing mirrors straight, lights pushed in correctly etc. This car is no different - you can't get every example 100% correct. The grappling hook I'd say is flawed, but the other faults aren't uncommon. And in E...

I've not seen anything stating it's a limited edition run anywhere - if it was limited, the box would mention it somewhere.

The pedals should just clip into place - there's a hole in the footwell for them.

Watercolours work fine on my model aircraft - I use them for weathering.

Photography is one of my hobbies - I spend alot of my spare time taking photos of Aircraft. You can see some of my aircraft photos here.

I know. This was discussed when I first posted photos of the car - they're supposed to be sending me some replacements.

By the way - HondaSiR, just looking at the pic you posted, and I noticed your wheels. I've done the same to my wheels, and it looks really superb. It's a tiny detail that makes a hell of alot of difference to the appearance of the car - thanks for pointing it out. I painted mine in water colours tho...
