Builders of auto subjects were delighted when Revell announced a newly tooled Porsche 911 Carrera in coupé and targa configurations. This boxing is of the latter and comes on ten styrene runners, with four solid vinyl tyres. Revell has obviously thought about encouraging new recruits to the hobby, so the styrene is pre-coloured with a red bodyshell, bumpers, light housings and engine cover for those who don’t want to paint their models. The moulding is excellent, with no flash or sink marks present on AMW’s sample, and there’s a beautifully detailed engine and transmission to savour. This last item can be viewed via the open engine cover, while the interior can be built in left or right-hand-drive configuration and there’s a choice of seat types. The colour scheme is for an overall red Porsche and there are 13 different registration plates offering choices for left or right-hand-drive machines.
