Don't know if I'll disassemble and rebuild
" So, this might be a little different if a review because I find that the fun of Lego is the building, because the accuracy is never going to be that of a scale... airplane-glue model. When I buy a Lego set, I build it, take it apart for my kids to build, modify it to suit my own tastes, or put its parts in the bins to be used on future MOCs.
This is the largest set I've ever built. The detail is amazing, and over 5 days in the evenings, I built it with my 14-year-old son's help. The are so many "greebling" pieces that taking it apart again without having separate inventories for each of the 15 bags seems very undesirable. $200 does seem like a fair price, but I'm not sure if I'll get $200 worth of "play value" out of this set when the play value for me is in the building process. So I give it 4 bricks out of 5. I otherwise agree with other reviewers here... it's the most accurate Lego Y-Wing yet, and the building techniques are revolutionary.

Detailed but Boxy
" I am a huge IMSA fan but I have been hesitant to buy the Speed Champions sets because they look boxy compared to the prototypes. This therefore is my first one. I think the wheel base should be 6 studs wide instead of 4; that would really help make the Lego model wider and sleeker, giving it the proper stance. Also the nose could be 1 stud longer in front of the axle. Otherwise I really enjoyed the building techniques, indicative of most modern sets, especially making the 3-D details of the ground effects and the air intakes behind the driver door.
Nielson and Balzan were such an incredible driving team for Scuderia Corsa the past two years, and definitely the authentic 2016-17 livery stickers and the minifigure of Christina Nielson are what sold me on getting this kit. The trophy looks similar to what they won at Daytona, and is a fun detail.
Overall I enjoyed the kit and I will buy more Speed Champions. Make the C7.R!
