@astro - this is a complete new bodyshell, just like the real thing. The problem was that the real Viper changed a while back, but of course it would have been foolish to try and put recent liveries on the older-style bodied car, which is why we have not seen any Viper releases lately. Now, with the new model completed, accurate models can be made of the latest real-life liveries.
Yes it has a full interior. I think it was one of the main reasons for the new car.
Among the upgraded features, you'll find :
- a full interior (it was the only FLY car wiythout that feature),
- front lights as used in 24h races (and yes they have to be yellow like they are on the model),
- a more detailed front bonnet (witness the different holes, especially the ones between the sides of front bonnet and the doors),
- an updated body (different rear wing, new air intakes and so on),
- exhaust pipes on a new place,
- working headlights.
I guess (though I'm not sure) that the chassis will be updated as well.
It should be great and I can't wait for more liveries !
Not a bad looking model. Those front yellow lights look a bit odd (are they stuck on right?) and the bonnet stripes don't match up. The last Fly Viper is the best slotcar ever made in my book, and I'm sure this one will run like a rabbit on a rocket.
That rear wing looks delicate. I hope the spare one don't cost a bomb (but it probably will, knowing Fly).
@screwneck - yes, your observations are quite correct on the lights and stripes, but to be fair to them they did rush this one through for me so that I would have some pictures for this forum. I would expect them to be more accurate with the real models. As for the rear wing, there are now two varients, prices and details here
