Hey guys. Its been a while since posting a build here.

I didn't  plan on ever buying a 1/12 nsx as the price are just way out. However this came up for a good price and i couldn't say no. It was a build kit but that's never a problem by me. I stripped the car and fortunately the owner before this only use 5 drops of glue on the whole car. the rest of the parts were just fitted together. The kit itself is a really good kit. Lots of details to it and nice features that make it stand out compared to other kits. As the build goes on I will keep you guys updated about the kit as well as the build.

heres what it looked like when i got it.

the interior had a terrible brown carpet in so i quickly changed it to black.

For the look you are going for, I would look at the Radio Control world for wheels/tires.......ebay has 100's of them even in low profile. Just look for the 1/10 scale drifter wheels and tires.

 

BTW, you are very lucky to have this model.....I want one of these quite badly. I will be following your build.  B)
