Hi Guys,
Here is my slightly modified Fujimi Prius. The front end was a little bit reshaped, also the rear "wing", used HD rims and some leftover PE brake discs and calipers from my parts box. The body color is some mixed automotive paint topped with 2k clear.

Sharp build...nice to see one with larger wheels/tires than the tiny ones the 1:1s have...I see so many of them everyday, they blend in after a while.

That build turned out real nice. Is a Prius a common sight in Hungary?

You know a Prius is not supposed to look that good?  Here in America people always make fun of them, I know because we have one in our garage, my wifes car.  She loves it and that's all that matters to me.  You obviously must love your Prius too.  Who knew one could look that good?

Very nice job on your Prius..The only thing missing, which would destroy your model, are taxi cab decals. Nice clean build on one of the worlds most mundane automobiles...

Your model looks great.  I was looking at this kit on Hobby Link Japan the other day.

 

My uncle and his sons, my cousins are very into the hybrid thing.  My uncle has a   hybrid Camry and a Prius.  Son number one has a hybrid Highlander and traded his Prius in on a Nissan Leaf.  Son number two has two Prius.  I've driven his Leaf and it's quite different a feel than a normal car.  I used to have an electric Cushman at my work and it felt sorta like driving that.  And they haven't had a dimes worth of trouble with any of the Toyota hybrids and several of them are up over 100,000 miles.

 

And yes I was planning on building the Prius kit as a taxi. That is such a common sight in the USA as we struggle to clean the air in our larger cities.
