I wanted to do this one as a paint excercise when I aquired the new Tamiya LP line. So it is mopstly box stock. Color I chose was LP44 Metallic Orange. I added a coat of LP53 Clear Orange and finished with the clear LP9. Kit is quite rare as Nakamura did not do too many cars. This car was a concept car built in 1969 by Pininfarina on an Abarth 2000 Sport Spider SE chassis. Car is powered by a 4 cyl engine but due to the extreme light weight of the car it was capable of 175mph. There was only one model built and it is currently in Japan on display in a museum. More info on this site: https://www.motor1.com/news/128077/fiat-abarth-2000-scorpione-concept/ An unusual subject for sure and i hope you enjoy it. See specifics below. I only added a few extra details like those turn signals in front. Rear veiw shows the single exhaust from the rear mount 4cly engine. I understand it was quite loud. Rear glass had a nasty flaw in it and had to be replaced with sheet styrene. Scorpion and script were from the kit decals but the stripes are vinyl tape. Surprisingly 50yr old decal came off the sheet. Rear deck hinges backwards and the entire windshield comes up on the real car. Car was supposed to be motorized so most of the interior is taken up by battery housing. Entire chassis is removable so at a later date I could add a real interior...but for now...I wanted it done.
