Ancient History Porsche 911 CRX Honda
Russell C posted a topic in Model CarsNext one in the 'ancient history' series, I built this one over the span of time from July 1990-May 1991. I had a spare Fujimi 911 Carrera kit laying around, and for some reason I thought its front clip ought to be on a Tamiya Honda CRX. Don't ask me how my mind works on such thoughts. Porsche wheels and the remnants of a Porsche whale tail lip on the back. Naturally, this would be an impossible car if it used the too-tall Honda engine, but out of sheer laziness, I just built the bottom side of it box-stock. More of the chore of this thing was converting the right-hand drive dash to left-hand, moving the pod over, filling in the passenger side, swapping the gauge decals and other bits. Being my own harshest critic, I should have taken a very thin vertical slice out of the front clip to shorten the width of the wheel opening just a tad. Looks too gaping to me, which I cover up here by not showing a pure side view. The taillight lenses could have used some reflectors behind 'em to give 'em less of a lifeless look, and I should have run a bit of a black wash into the panel lines.....
