so this is my first post here. ive been building models since i was like 6 but they were straight out of the box. this is my first attempt with styrene so instead of starting with something easy, ill be building a whole body kit and extras.

I wish I still had my 1:1 1985 Corolla GTS Coupe. It would fly for a 4 cylinder.

Nice work so far, I like the idea of giving the back area the look of the seat down.

I dig it man. Got some good things going. 86 owner approved. :D
Just some advice for them rear seats. This version doesn't have a "T" shape when you pull the seats down. It's just a square shape with a seam on the middle as they are a left and right side.
If you want some great reference pics go to www.club4ag.com there's a section where people post their builds of their cars.

Check out BNA models or The Parts Box. They have a resin 2JZ, 13B rotary, and the SR20... all popular AE86 swaps.
