So, after much digging through the stash I have whittled the choices down to 7 kits I want to build so im throwing it out there to let the community decide which kit will be my entry into this upcoming GB.
I decided to challenge myself and leave the certainty of Tamiya kits in the stash for this one and give some other manufacturers a bash.
The poll will run for 2 weeks giving me time to grab any extra bits that maybe needed before we get underway.

So the choices
Lamborghini Countach by Fujimi - A (Tamiya) Countach was the first model kit I ever built as a kid, so it would be nice to have one back in the cabinet.
Shelby Cobra by AMT - This is the 1/16th scale version that ill do with the 427 motor. Getting a nice finish over the surface area will be the main challenge here.
Chevy Nova by AMT - Never need an excuse to re watch Beverley Hills Cop but herre is one anyway. Axel Foley's infamous ride. Time to try rusting etc on a car?
Pontiac Firebird by Revell - One of the Foose kits that offer a couple of extra parts over the original kits, will probably need some tweaks to the ride height etc.
Road Warrior by Aoshima - from Mad Max this is asking for some chips and dust all over.
Delorean by Aoshima - From the original Back To the Future movie including fluxx capacitor and lightning rod.
K.I.T.T. by Aoshima - From Series 4 of Knight Rider, includes LED chaser and nice detial on the interior

Mad Max FAN me . . . . go for some extra detailing under that bonnet and else where. Perhaps even do a wee Road base to mount it on . . . :whistle:

When I was younger I actually used to own a black XA 351 Coupe and drive it to work every day! Now I am much more sensible. I vote for the Lambo :lol:

At the moment I can't see the results unless I vote myself, and if I know which one to pick this thread wouldn't be necessary :-)

Thanks fo the input so far guys, they all have their pro's and cons but each will hopefully teach me something new.

Maybe I need a vote for that as well :-)
The red is also very appealing

So the votes are in and they all go back into the stash cupboard except for the Cobra.
One bonus is no aftermarket parts that I need to buy for this one.

Thanks to everyone who voted or commented, I hope those of you who voted for the cobra are happy with your votes once its done :-)
Ill keep you up to date with progress once the GB kicks off.

D1, funds etc will be put across tomorrow.
