Always loved the butch looks of the 1970s through the 1990s Aston Martins. Bonus points for having pictured it so well in the movie 'Johnny English Strikes Again' where Rowan Atkinson actually used his own Vantage to great effect. Didn't waste a moment to add this model when a fellow collector and friend decided to thin it out from his collection.
I was reading here that the model is not true to the original, especially the front end but I am genuinely having a hard time to see what is wrong. That put aside, it is a genuinely well made model. Great engine and chassis detailing. Everything that could have been scaled down and displayed has been replicated on the model. Love how the engine is wired and there is also the lamp to light up the engine bay. The interiors are all black. I wish they would have been a lighter color but that is a minor gripe. Love the wheels and and chunky tires with well detailed treads. One visible issue is that the chrome trim around the door windows is patchy. Simply evaporated and has exposed the black plastic under it or dulled and looks like matte silver.
I am very glad to own this Aa, my second in almost 5-6 years now.
