My all-time favorite model. I've often thought that if I had all my beauties stacked in a pyramid, this one would be on top. I believe I actually gasped when I opened the box and saw the British Racing Green paint job for the first time. There are some models that I buy primarily for the subject, others for the apparent quality/detail of the models themselves; this one I got because it's an E-Type, but the quality is all there! Little details like the opening filler cap and legible instructions on the wheel lugs are just icing on the cake! Add the certificate, and I call this perfect. (Sorry for my thumb in the corner of the first pic!)

I too agree 100%. One of the best iteration by Autoart. Very well detailed to the smallest part. The seats are made of real leather as mentioned in the booklet. Now I am really not sure if that is the fact.

Funny, I never heard that about the seats! I just checked them and they seem authentic, but it's hard to be sure. I'm happy either way though :)
