This is a project that I am doing as a tribute to Paul Walker and the first 3 cars (Eclipse, Supra & Skyline) driven by his character “Brian O’Conner in the films “The Fast and the Furious” and “2 Fast 2 Furious”. The 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS was first seen in the opening clips of the movie “The Fast and the Furious”. The bright green paint scheme got my attention right from the start and like others, I was an immediate fan (of the soon to be franchise). The Mitsubishi Eclipse model was soon produced by both Revell & AMT. I wanted to build the best version of this vehicle with the most accurate & detailed parts. The solution was for me to use the Revell kit as the primary and combine parts from the AMT kit as well as a bunch of after market parts and photo-etched goodies. The rear interior of both kits did not accurately show what was behind the front seats, so I decided to add all the missing details to this model and used the AMT’s rear interior and amalgamated them both. I will remove the stereo amplifiers and place them in the rear hatch. The back seat mounted sub woofer wall will be converted into a sub woofer box and will also be moved to the back hatch area with the amplifiers. The rear seat wall and hatch cover will be repurposed into a deck that will cover up the rear seats and provide a place for the two NOS bottles to be mounted to.
