Die Cast X - - KIT CAR GARAGE -

Bet you thought a snap-to­gether kit meant that you give up some­thing in the de­tail and looks depart­ment? Not so with the Po­lar Lights GT, which comes in the retro-cool Her­itage blue-and-or­ange Gulf liv­ery, pay­ing homage to the John Wyer–run Gulf rac­ing GT40s that won Le Mans two years in a row in 1968 and 1969. But this GT is thor­oughly mod­ern, and fea­tures a nicely de­tailed 550hp su­per­charged 5.4L V-8 and an ac­cu­rate in­te­rior. The Her­itage scheme isn’t just fan­tasy—Ford of­fered it as a fac­tory op­tion on its su­per­car in 2006 (sans Gulf de­cals). The kit pro­vides the de­cals, so you can com­plete the look if you want to, or you can leave them off for a fac­tory look. The en­gine comes with chrome parts, the win­dows are clear plas­tic, the tires are rub­ber, and the body and other chas­sis pieces are mod­eled in blue. This kit has more de­tail than many pre­built mod­els cost­ing con­sid­er­ably more, and you get the fun of build­ing it.
