Nicely done Ronny!

 

I also have this kit in the stash so it was nice seeing it built.

You should build it. Easy, quick work unless you start customising. But painting the window details is a bitch. Where I'm form, we don't even get good quality thin masking tape for modelling. Had to make do with 3M scotch tape.

 

I've got one I partially started years ago.The black window trim isn't so hot on it so I have to re-do it.

It's interesting to compare the kit to the Fujimi offering and see just how different they are(The Tamiya being much more accurate).

And,yeah,Tamiya seems to enjoy leaving out major portions of under hood detail(take a look at a Soarer kit with engine,for example, and then look at the illustration on the box top-most of the fuel system is missing).

 

Missing detail is annoying. Only Fujimi piece i got is a AE86. Looks pretty accurate but not sure. Curbside model though so sadly no engine awesomeness.

Cheap rattle can paint? Looks terrific. SO what does it matter, eh?

Am i the only one who had a defective Tamiya R32? It had one A pillar coupla millimeters shorter than the other, meaning the glass would never ever sit right. So i had to cut the shorter A pillar and lengthen it to make everything fit. But yeah, rest of everything is brilliantly detailed and accurate.

Wow. Amazing kit. Hard to tell if it was the real thing or not.

Sometimes simplicity is best. Brilliant.
