Maybe it's perspective, but the wheels look HUGE. The Cobra looked a bit odd in that department too.

Must stop trying to criticise. But that's NEXT years resolution.

Howmet, I concur, but it sould be the angle of the photo?? It's not so mush that they look large as they are not tucked far enough under the bodywork. I will but every one they do though.

I am hoping that more work will be done on these before release.

I would like the Cunningham car to look more like this:

Wow! A low-drag coupe and a lightweight! And there was me waiting to see which one they did! Good work Remonovellgram

I agree with the view that the wheel/tyre size is inaccurate and I'm not sure if they have quite got the subtle blend of the original car from the hardtop to the rear wing on the low drag version but I keep reminding myself these are plastic toy cars and I'm sure I'll buy one. A few years ago we would have killed to get slot cars like these.

How did I manage to survive without these two beauties? Absolutely stunning. I'm trembling so much I can barely type. Now I'm going to have to go get a job

Hmmm, guess I don't know squat about racing Jags but the noses don't look too pukka to me.

Still, the most tempting offering yet from Revell....

HHHMMM,even the rear wheels on the Coupe are of the deeper dished style compared to the Hard Top car.

They are trying that's for sure.

I think it is more a tire issue than the wheels,they look a bit like overly large Hockey Pucks,and I think that is what realy makes them look so poor.

Yeah, that's certainly true and shouldn't be forgotten.
