AE86 with F20C S2000 swap

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first post to this forum, some really great models around here!

Started this kit in 2007 and finally picked the hobby back up to finish it. I scratchbuilt the engine since this kit was originally curbside. Hood is currently awaiting drying and polishing. Also made a few other modifications for realism. Hope you like it!

That's pretty cool.

I love seeing Curbside models that get made into full detail models - the crafting skill is quite amazing.

Its a japanese subway handle. Its a trend in japan to attatch them to your tow hooks on street or drift cars.

5 Years is totally worth the end result! 1:1 looking.

X2!

For sure this is one of the best Corola builds I've ever seen. Love the engine too!

Very nice work, these just look so nice lowered like yours. Glad you cleared up that ring-thing, Ive seen them for years but didnt know what they were.

Excellent work on the engine, detail and paint. It all looks really good.

I imagine that the subway handle is a way for the driver to thumb his nose at the public transit system... sort of an "UP yours! I've got a car!" statement.

Awesome job. I like the interior stripped detailing. Also the engine looks great. Did you scratchbuild the whole thing including the block or use a block from a different kit?
