Salvaged this Tamiya kit from a lot on Ebay. It was painted an ugly orange, had a broken A-pillar, and was missing the wheels and decals.  I sourced an aftermarket set of decals for a 2003, and somebody gave me a set of wheels from a Porsche. So what started out as a neglected and abused Tamiya kit.....ended up looking like a used and abused Tamiya model.  :D

Nice save Sam, the weathering is very convincing, looks like it's just completed a stage B)  ;)

I have been looking for this kit for awhile to make a scale replica of my 1:1 2002 STI. I love the weathering effects. I'm sad that no company makes this year with a removable hood and engine.
