Murc Monday: Maisto Murcielago

A thought out for all the LaLDers who are living close to the potentially threatened areas of Dorian; stay safe everyone. Sincerely hope thatthe hurricane will lose energy quickly, and cause minimum, if not no damage.

Warning: Image - heavy. I had so much fun snapping this one.

I have been very biased towards the Murciealago as the ultimate Lambo, of all time perhaps. Maybe it is the shape, maybe it is the name (Diablo will probably remain the most badass name given to a car IMO, this comes very close, along with its little brother Gallardo), maybe it is the behavior, or maybe it is the engine sound. There are so many reasons to haul this one right up your bedroom as the ultimate poster boy.

I also wanted a 1:18 model in my collection. And then I came across a very good deal for this.

It is standard Maisto fare; you get (a bit more than) what you paid for. The details are on point (except for a mediocre door sash finish on both sides, and headlights) the steering works well, engine detail is pretty decent and it feels somewhat solid (when everything is shut).

Hopefully I’ll be able to muster an AA or Kyosho. Till then, this will do.
