i like the new Vanquish a lot, also this volcano red looks very good on it. this was also my first of the composite models from AUTOart. its a pretty good model all around, but it could be a but cheaper though.

Lovely pics! Can't say I've seen that many red ones out there. I've got the bronze one and absolutely love it. Thanks for sharing!

I think it looks great! But I do agree with Alex, the price could be cheaper. I do quite fancy one though, so if it ever goes in a sale, I'll probably get one.

okay, after having this model for 5 yeas i noticed something.



the door cards on the passenger side is for the selene bronze Vanquish :S
luckily they had a spare door card for the red Vanquish at autoartspares.com which i bought.

now fixed.



while i had it it taken apart anyway, i upgraded the headlight projectors to look more realistic and better.

That Selene Bronze door card is so random. Glad you were able to get it changed - that would have probably bugged me quite a bit.

What exactly did you do to the headlight cluster? It looks like you added material or changed the colour of the black portion in front of the actual lamps. I was also thinking that you changed the lens cover as there is less reflective glare, but that could just be your lighting.

Thanks for the answer, and sorry for the belated response! I was focused on the dark area in front of the lamps, and didn't think to look at the lamps themselves. It's a subtle difference, and it does look a bit better in the photos. I'm guessing that it's more noticeable in person?

they come with the dark area in the front painted from the factory, so you dont need to paint it yourself :)

the projectors on the other hand is just clear plastic and doesnt look like much. having painted them, it is a pretty noticeable upgrade when looking at in person.
