Many of you might already seen this model over and over again but here, i would like to re-introduce this stunning model again before i proceed to reveal on all various kind of errors been spotted from first released in 2014 MAINLINE C CASE series til recently. At the beginning when it first released in mid of November 2013, there are no errors or variants spotted until late November 2013. So let's have a look at all angles (front, side, rear & top surface) of this model, shall we. :) I have added all the specifications on the details body tampos for the normal first body color - RED.

TOP SURFACE VIEW

ERRORS: MISSING FRONT HEADLIGHTS, RIGHT SIDE OF SIGNAL LIGHT

The next part, we will be looking at errors on wheels installed.
ERROR: UNPAINTED FRONT CHROME RIMS WITH TOTAL BLACK OH5SP WHEELS.
ERROR: UNPAINTED REAR CHROME RIMS WITH TOTAL BLACK OH5SP WHEELS.
ERROR: WRONGLY INSTALLED FRONT CHROME TRAP5 WHEELS.
As you can see, there's so many errors that sometimes hard to keep track for just 1 car model. So far, there are no error or variant spotted for short card edition. If these errors were to be obtain by just one collector, it would be fascinating to look upon on a view like museum-style collection eh.. :)
One of the interesting part of this model is the side body tampo that Mattel used are real genius indeed. When you look far away, you might not see whether is it just lines or wordings beside the 'DOHC' logo near front wheels. And it is wordings - PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION. Real cool huh.. Not just that, there's another tampo 'VTEC' which consists of very small lines within the wordings logo. If you check real close on those words, it is very detailed!
So, remember to check your collection to find out whether you have any of these errors or variant that could possibly be found, alright. I love error or variant cars as much as the normal ones. If you have any error or variant that you spotted, feel free to share it together, ok. :)
That's all for now, folks. Hope you enjoy my blog and see you all soon.
Take care guyz! :D
