What a GREAT early tip off!
For me, The Daytona is one of the absolute all-time, clasically beautiful shapes.
Priced not badly, but do you SEE the price of the three car P4 set just above it?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaarghhh!


That is
!!!

Where are my
Beta Blockers?

Ta 4 the links!

I am shocked at the maclaren gt40 mk 2 - fly have made the same mistake that scalex did on these with the engine detailing
- these mark ones had a single glass carburetta pot that you can see through the back window, and the mark 1s had the 8 steel puts with a cover. Neither fly or scalex have bothered with an authentic engine thing for the mark 2s. Deffo not bothering with the fly gt40 mk 2s

And I hate Ferrari.

Good work on bringing us the link there, friend.

Daytona..... All time beautiful shape? Wha???

Nasty bulky pointy nosed thing. Melt it down and make P4s from it. On a scale of arousal from Kathy Burke to J-Lo, the Daytona ranks somewhere aound 'Hobbit'

Just gratuitously trying to start a lively 'Debate'

Happy New Year

Now the Howmet TX Turbine.....seriously sexy car

OK tx your on,

all time great, front engined stunning Supercar I have wanted a 1/1 one for years. better looking than 550. Very fast got just about everything going for it.

It's a little like a MK11 Jag (I had five) still never beaten for looks in a saloon car especially by any of the later Jags.

Not another peep out of you, Mr John 'so-called' P until we get a few more views of your Lotus.

Speaking as the owner of a Volvo estate (not sure what model number or engine but has extra fold down seat at back for children to make threatening gestures at lorry drivers) I feel perfectly justified in passing down judgements on overweight Ferraris. All modern (post 250 SWB?) Ferraris are too big, too gross, and just plain ugly.

And if that Lotus is about, surely...yes! Is that a Batmobile hovering over West Hamley?...and is there Jam still for tea?

I'll bite.

I don't think J-Lo is at the top of the scale. Nope. Not no way no how. Ugly plug. It's a toss up betwixt Liz Hurley or Nell McAndrew.

P4s, good idea but I'm going to have to make space for one of these Daytonas. I'm weak, too weak.

Depending on your views and/or financial status, the following is either, good news, or bad news...

The FLY Ferrari 364 GTB/4 Daytonas are in stock in the UK @ Sean's and GS

Message ends....

Received the Daytona this morning courtesy of Getslotted - Despatched very quickly, top notch packing - fantastic!


About the cars appearance, particulary the roof line (some people mentioned looks too low) when comparing the car to the pictures of a 1:1. The roll cage Fly have fitted seems to enhance the perception the side windows are smaller than they actually are, helping create the impression of a low roof line.

The car does give the impression that it is a smidgen on the wide side, mind you with the flared wheel arches and huge rear tyres (they literally fill the rear wheel wells, certainly a tight fit!) i'd imagine this is rather hard to avoid!

Build quality, on my example the front spoiler was slightly askew, highlighted further by the livery. The good thing it was easily repaired, I just pushed the bits back into place and now looks fine, I admittedly tend to be abit fussy, liking cars to be perfect.

Regarding the livery, as Scott mentioned, the decals do look like they will scratch easily (mine has a small mark where the print has been missed - luckily, not easily spotted). However on the flip-side, the not-so-shiny finish certainly creates a diecast appearance, adding an air of solidity to the car which is no bad thing.

To sum up, I think it is one of Fly's best releases to date.

Looking forward to the second livery.

Makes me smile when you consider the amount of Fly bashing recently. They bring something out that makes us go daft (witness the Phoenix lads handling this model on Thursday) and all is swiftly forgiven! We are all suckers when it comes to something new and different. For what it`s worth I reckon in the flesh it looks really low but it also looks realy good. But does it race well? Anyone?

Daytona...Gorgeous looking car! Not at all Hobbit-like. In case you think I'm biased, well, yes I am. The Daytona must have inspired the Rover SD1, especially the front and the 3500 SE Auto I owned for over 4 years was the best car I ever had.

Cheers,
Mark.
