I have the AutoArt 1/18 scale model of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera in pre-order the moment I could write my name down on the list ... but as we all know it still isn't anywhere near to being released at this moment. When I found this DX made 1/18 model on eBay I just couldn't resist adding it to the collection.
My first 1/18 scale model of the LP570-4 Superleggera, and to make the deal even better it is actually an RC model, that's right, I can drive this one ... I'm not going to do that, but still the idea is there.
Another nice premium on most RC models these days are LED lights, and this green lightweight has nice Xenon look LED up front as headlights, and red LED taillights ... so when you are driving you see where you are going, when you hit the brakes and put her in reverse the red taillights come on ... sure this is a toy, but it is so much fun anyway.
Is this a must have scale model? I would have to deny that, it isn't that nicely finished when you look closely, the 1/14 Rastar models are much better ... and I'm not even putting it anywhere close to the 1/10 Maisto made Aventador I also have ... this DX one is just for fun.
One thing to keep in mind : don't show it to your kids ... you'll have a hard time putting it back in the box after the photo shoot and a small 'test drive', trust me, I learned the hard way with this one.
