Not a comprehensive build diary as such, just some in progress pics.This is the best Deagostini kit I have ever built.Fit is perfect,detail is outstanding.Very enjoyable so far.

Hi Carl,

Looking great so far. Love That engine is a beast. I am building this as well as the DeLorean. The engine is twice the size of the one in the DeLorean kit which is the same scale. Must be an impressive thing in real life.

Getting closer to finishing now.Once she is done I will be tackling Pochers Aventador.I am sure this will be much more difficult to build.I have Paul Koos CD to help me correct all the errors and add extra detail.

So far the Lambo has been a trouble free build.Everything fits perfectly.
