The F90 kits are system injection, have no waists and have the air of Rally
cars about them due to the color and detail combination. BUT, they are damn
good in the sense that they are quite nice to look at with all the extras tacked
on them. Unfotunately, the proportions of the basic kit is not very nice, almost
