Tailess

I love the look of my M491 without the tea tray.......if you look carefully, in the background there's a Duck Tail lurking in the carport........

Time will tell:

I don't like whale tails at all, and to be honest most ducks look horrible. Wish singer just sold their mini duck.

yorkemike,

That powered C2 tail may be the answer, I've toyed with the idea. I've loved Duck Tails since I owned a '74 Carrera Targa in the 80's.

I like the look of the Duck on a widebody but it's so understated without a thing.

Billy, your car is stunning and I'm generally not a Guards fan.

Thanks guys....appreciate it! She came with the Carrera tail but I much prefer the clean lines of the car with out it. Thought about a duck too, but in the end, I just love it so much like this that I couldn't change it.

Just wouldn’t be the same without them. Maybe it’s the colors and the Carrera graphics but I could never imagine these without their tails. I’m leaving them just the way they are lol
