The Avante for me is the ultimate Tamiya model, the one I most wanted as a teenager. So when the Black Special was announced I knew I had to make room in my collection. I was supposed to sell some models, but I just shuffled some kits around and hey pesto, room for a box of two on top of my display cabinets.
Supplied by Stellamodels who are excellent, especially the attention they give to packaging.
I now have an original UK version NIB, two 2011 releases (one NIB and one built awaiting paint) and now two NIB Black Specials. I will probably build one to display, but for now I am just going to admire them.
