Thought I'd share, I finally found my car, might not be rapid red but its red with black stripes and has the CF Wing which I am still waiting on, Got lucky on ebay from a chinese seller, couldn't believe it. Now to find either tape or something in white to mask up the car and pinstripe it :)

Less than $70 and stuff opens not like the 1/12 that doesnt and cost $300+

Nice, I look forward to your tweaking of it.

I kind of want to pick up a FPB one, but I don't wanna send it to SA for the wide body lol

I just have to find what will work best considering how thin the pinstripes have to me due to scale. And sending ti to ge a wide body the car would be gone for months, I dont think I could handle waiting that long again considering how long it took already. :D

I hear ya! Ordered 7/2/19 and delivered 12/6/19 = 5 month wait

Had possession from 12/6/19 until first week of September 2020 = 9 months

Sent to SA first week of September through todays date = 5 months of waiting

At least 3-4 more months of waiting = 13-14 months total waiting.

Self inflicted I know, but man am I running out of steam.

At least your not on with NA or then you would have had the trifecta :crackup: But then again you probably wouldn't be able to afford the car LOL

i'd say it's race red.
Yes thats race red, where the one I got from China was a much deeper red, more like rapid red or ruby red. Mine looks lighter due to the camera adjusting the lighting.

I have been hunting white model, all the models I find have the blue stripes. My next step is to find one and take it apart and repaint it. The maisto models are well done, so I may go with one of those.
That or I can add the blue stripes to my real car and be done 😂 except I prefer no stripes.
