    It looks nice.

    But in this photo, is it me, poor lighting in the photo or did Kyosho make the bumper (the upper piece, above the body-line) black?

    Peter, I saw the same thing! Gosh, I hope it's just the lighting. I'd hate to think they would really paint it black!

    Like many have asked, when will there be a 308/328 GTS???

    I am going to buy one, but this has too many issues - shipped straight from Hong Kong, no returns/exchanges, $29.99 shipping to US.

    The bumper top sure looks black. But I went out and looked at my 328 and that part of the bumper is black on the real one...(failed attempt at humor).

    I wish they would've done a better job on the wheels. Those look almost as bad as the Anson's.

    Anson wheels are waaaaaay worse IMO. Too bad they did the '89 version with Monidal-wheels, otherwise I only would have needed to paint the spoiler. Still, the 308's were great so what else could this be?

    Anyway, mine's black anywhere below the waistline usually, until I give it a wash. I would love to get one of those on my desk...

    The wheels look much better in the later picture, but the top of the bumper is still black. The Anson wheels always looked flat, like a cross between earlier and later cars. These look like ABS wheels. I really like the wheels from Dana's page. They look like F40 wheels. Don't know about the mirrors; they look like 308 mirrors, but still good.

    Now that we have nit picked this to death, anyone know what colors it will be? Just red, maybe yellow, hopefully black?

    I went back to Eric's page and noticed that the 328 does indeed have the F40 wheels from mattel.

    The 308 GTS is actually an Anson 328 body with a Kyosho 308 nose and a 328 rear. Notice the side louvers. ie. 328 GTS.

    Hi guys, I noticed your talking about my Ferrari pics.

    I was playing with Photoshop with those images. The rims on the 328 were from the Mattel 288 GTO and the image of the 308 GTS is infact a Kyosho 308 with just the targa top section and window louvers Photoshopped into the image. :)

    I done a lot of Photoshop work with my images to enhance the pictures.

    Eric,

    I guess the final touch to make it completely convincing would be blurring in DES as the driver :)

    Has anyone received theirs yet? I ordered two of them pre-production back in Oct. and I haven't seen anything yet.

    The door mirrors are a good sign Kyosho might follow with a Boxer 512i or a 412i.

    Dave, sorry, this is a chat site, not a store; you're going to have to browse the internet or call hobby stores in order to get pictures and prices...
