That Type 934 is a NICE kit! I don't know about the rest...................dont' tell us you paid less than $100 for everything!! :shock:

I have an original Gunze Daytona, and I know on eBay they can go for $150+........

That would NOT make my day! :D

I heard on CNN that the Daytona kits were infected with a particularly incidious strain of avian flu during the trip from Asia. :shock: They call it General Tso's Chicken fru, er...flu and it is VERY contagious. I suggest you wok, no run to the post office right now and mail it to me for disinfection. I and my trusty lab assistant, nurse Geary, will then see it is disposed of properly.

I'm only thinking of you and your family's safety.

All kidding aside, I can also tell you that Honda is an outstanding kit.

Dan, is that the 1/20 or the 1/12 scale version?


It was the 1/20 kit.

I didn't even paint the wheels for the most part. I just held a paint brush dipped in silver paint in place while I spun the wheel on a cordless drill to highlight the rim.
