As you all know, I collect Lamborghini model, no matter if they are mere toys or high-end collectibles, so when I found this 1/64 scale model from Tarmac Works I just couldn't resist adding it ... or I should say, them, because I actually bought all four liveries made, an Indonesian Police livery, the famous NFS Police livery, the well-known Dubai Police livery ... and this Rosso Bia one that comes with a Tricolore stripe from front to back.
I really like the Rosso Bia shade in real life, it is a 'glittered' red, not just a metallic shade, and it really sparkles out in the sun ... this Tarmac Version does seem a bit darker than the real shade however, and that isn't the only flaw on this small 1/64 scale model.
When you look at the rear wing, it is quickly obvious it is too high and angled incorrectly on this model, add the rubber rear view mirrors, and I just can't classify this as a Collector's Item ... and it isn't really a toy either, so I just listed it as a Diecast model, which is fair I think.
Still, have no regrets adding these four models to my collection, but at €13 each you can't call them a bargain if you ask me. Also, keep in mind nothing opens on these Tarmac Models, hence I gave a '1' score for the engine detail ... as there is no engine.
