Lots to See in this Miura SV... [PIC]
OK... that was a cheesy rhyme. I have a couple of these AUTOart 1/43s and the amount of detail in them is amazing. It has almost the same parts count as my Aa Jota and with the 1/43 the intake grates on the hood are actually hinged. Anyway, some of you might get a kick out of this Lamborghini Miura SV model.
Auto Art does some amazing work and your pictures show it off well, Rich. I have this one in yellow. I pull it off the shelf, from time to time, just to wonder at the detail again!
It's a great model - I've posted mine here a few times after Dick Browne sold me his review model in 2011.
These were popular subjects for the diecast industry back in the day - almost all the major brands had one in their range. But the two best were by Politoys and Solido, both of whom showed off how many working parts they could incorporate more than 40 years before the AUTOart.
But wait, there's more! Bob Wallace tweaked a Miura even more, creating the Jota, modelled by Minichamps (sadly, nothing opens).
A few well-heeled Lambo enthusiasts wanted their own Jota, resulting in a few conversions. Kyosho made a replica of Miura SVR chassis 3781, originally owned by Heinz Steber. Only the engine cover opens.
Fine detailing, and your good photography does a good job of sharing. Many thanks!
It's a lovely model to spend hours looking all the details. Here is mine, in yellow...
By the way, the Auto Art Countach from the same series with all opening parts is another worth model...

I have a significant number of AutoArt models in my collection due to their magnifient detail and tending to be models of real cars that I love. Thanks for this one Rich and Harv, that is a beautiful selection. I have the Solido and the Politoys. I need to have a closer look at the,.
