I have the Carmine Red coupe, and as much as I want to love it, I also noticed the oversized wheels and was a bit disappointed. More unfortunate, however, was the QC on my example. There's a glue spot underneath the mirror on the passenger side on mine that's really obvious. It sticks out like a sore thumb on that paint. Too bad, because it's otherwise a brilliant model. I probably should have shipped it back and asked for another model, but I was really busy at the time and didn't follow up on it in time.
I think I actually like this Targa better for what it's worth. I especially love the blue paint. I wonder if there is any chance that Schuco would rerelease the model with properly scaled wheels? Doubtful, but it would sure be nice.
In the meantime, all of these pictures of the early Targas really make me want one of those. Wow!
