Came across this on eBay and thought it looked cool. Paid a lot for it, but it's worth it. The kit says it's a 1:24th scale, but it's a 1:25th scale. There's also extra parts to make the S500 and 600 versions. The kit isn't too bad, but it has some flaws. Like a lot of models there's not much room for the windshield to be glued in. There's also a major fit issue with the dash. If you follow the directions, there's a huge gap between the dash and the windshield/firewall area. I could fit another dash and a half in that gap. I had to rework the model some to make it look right. I was also puzzled that the underside has the engine molded in and that the hood is molded on, but there's an option to cut the hood off and then have a partial build of the engine. Why not just have the hood off and build the whole engine to sit in there? Kinda weird, but it's nice for a foreign model to even have that option. I gotta go back and paint the emblems on the caps, but over all I think it came out great.

"Itasha" means Pain car in Japanese. This could refer to the pain you feel when looking at it or the cost to your wallet after building it :-) Basically an Itasha car is one that is covered in pictures of Anime, Manga, and Pop star decals. Some look really cool. I think the one I built does. Thanks for looking!
Here is a project I have been working on for awhile. I am trying to finish it soon for our clubs big contest coming up. I actually was inspired to build this from a song. The idea here is what if a guy took a 32 Ford roadster and decided to build it to go drifting in. I even have a resin Japanese girl to stand next to it when it's finished.
