I reserve the right to change my opinion. We all do. If you are a collector there are plenty of models in your collection that didn’t grab your attention at first, until they did. And there you are doing an eBay scramble to catch up on all the models you could have easily bought on the pegs a few months or years before.
Maybe those are models you ignored. There are also models you actually disliked at first. That is the case with the Hot Wheels Porsche 911 GT3 RS. I wasn’t as keen as I thought I would be on the casting when it was released last year in red, but over time I started to warm up.
Then this green version was released, and wowzers, it’s fantastic. Sure, things look a little too stocky on the rear side, but that is what has to happen with a metal spoiler. One solution is to break things up with the black deco on the side of the spoiler, and it works well. Of course tail light tampos would be the best solution, and maybe that will happen soon. The other thing, and it is hard to explain why, is how much better all black rims look. Just a tad sportier, lending itself to the overall design.
Maybe I am trying to get too specific. The fact is I just like this casting a lot more now, and can appreciate how well it it made. And I like liking models a lot more than not liking them, so…hooray. I’m going to do it again, on some model in the future, so when I complain again, just roll your eyes and mention to yourself that I am just going to like it later. Flip-flopper.
