Way back when I had my first Tamiya car 'The Fox', I awaited every new Tamiya release with anticipation. I remember when the Avante was released and thought 'wow, this thing may well be the winner Tamiya has been waiting for'. One turned out at my local club and yes, it was a very fast car. It made it onto my upgrade list, along with a Yokomo Dogfighter, Kyosho Optima Mid, and Schumacher CAT XLS. I ended up at that time going with the CAT, but still loved the look of this kit. Now 20+ years into the future, I have added the Avante to my collection, couldn't have been happier when Tamiya anounced this kit as a Re-Re. I even sourced an original mint condition Technigold motor to go with it. For colour I was looking at something to back the 'Lame Flake' base coat, and went with 'Gun Metal' backed with 'White'. As always, comments welcome.

Just love NIB Choices Carbon fibre Check out the Lame Flake All set up to build while watching Bathurst
