Not to bad.

My only nitpick would be that the rims/caps look really small compaired to the tires.
They looked normal in their prototype pictures but they since changed them by the
looks of it...... and not for the better.

Like they are 13" rims. Other than that, a pretty bang up job. Back seat even folds down.

Looking good and very well detailed, looks like it's got the 1st season solid red voicebox, chrome L-trim in the doorpanels, interior roof painted in the correct colour, etc. great details :)
There wouldn't happen to be any new information about 1/43 KITT model?

I agree about the tires. Looks like too much sidewall compared to the rims. I would love to see if they fixed the scanner...

Way too much sidewall/tiny rims and no fog lights behind the vents? Other than that it looks pretty sweet.

I know I mentioned this in the first thread about the rear privacy protector but if you look between pic 6 and 7 you will notice something going on in the trunk space.The end is supposed to be attached to the back part of the rear couch head area and the other end to the trunks rear but i'm not sure how its working there.

Perhaps they watched the episode "Speed Demons" when designing the tyres :D
Slightly bigger rims and thinner tyres might improve the look, perhaps tad lower stance as the Hero car was lowered 2 inches or something like that. Front nose could use a bit rounder corners.
Small adjustments like this and it would become pretty much perfect as it basically look already really great model.

Hi,

i just wanted to tell that i'am very disappointed with the nose of this model.. :(
i already pre ordered it, but if this the nose that will be on the final product, i will think of cancelling it... :cry:
i will wait for more pics, but it seems not right to me, and at that kind of price, i can't accept that. :?
See the comparaison with the real kitt, and with the custom model from mvgs2011 (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17800):

i really wish they will change the shape of the nose, and make it more the custom model above..

They are a bit all over the place regarding the look.

It's a season 4 nose (Hence why it is shorter) with season 1 grills and a season 2 overhead console in it.

The nose looks like the model kit from MPC.

I got my pre-order from Entertainment Earth @ http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodi ... BlhjaNvCsY

Don't know for sure if they ship to your country or not.

They need to lengthen to nose,lower the body,and fix the rims/tire scale.They also.need to attach the privacy protector to the right mounting spot.like a stock trans am
