Tamiya Honda S800, Racing Version


Recommended Posts

Just finished up this little racer. The color is Tamiya TS-23 light blue with a nose done in some orange/red I mixed up a long time ago. I'd originally painted this in a dark blue and I really didn't like the look. I had some light blue on hand after finishing up a paint job on a different kit and gave it a try. I love it on this car. I was trying for a weekend vintage race look. Pretty much box stock, some foil, but no other extras.







If interested, more pictures can be found here:

Nice! I used to vintage race with a guy that had one of them. His wasn't a drive it to the track type of car though. It was a full on race car. Here's a couple of pics. It's in the background pf the first one. It was really fast!

what brand is this Kit? Tamiya? The frame looks very interesting!

It is the Tamiya kit. The frame, or chassis I guess, gets added to the body/interior assembly at the end of the build, which is kind of cool because you can show it off like this.

I love IT! I just can't get enough of the old Hondas. The 1:1 cars are super hard to find, as are the 1:24 kits if you exclude Ebay :P .

I really like this era of Honda, too. I built the Fujimi kit of the S600 and I hated it. This one is much better in every possible way. By the way, I'm auctioning this kit on eBay right now. I'm not really interested in building another one.
