„Handsome on the boulvard, speedy on the open road „ read the brochure for the TR 2 in the USA in 1954. The car was a success in Europe soon but the success was realy big in USA. The production was hardly able to satisfy the claims.

The model was built from a Gunze Sangyo kit nearly OOB. There was altered the screenwiper to lay on „glas”, the dashboard covered with oak micro-veneer, some switches are added and doors are opened. I changed the construction of door hinges – so is the door move more similar to the real one.

Very nice! My uncle had a white TR3 that looked just like this, what's the difference between the TR2-3?

Cracking build, I really like the GS kits, although to date I've only built the one, a A-H Frogeye Sprite, I have the TR3 in my stash ...

The TR3 had a front grille fitted and a slightly more powerful engine than the TR2

Very nice. Is this a curbside? If not, please include some engine and chassis pics.

That's a great build, especially the opening doors.

The model is in 1:24 scale and it`s a curbside one. I highlighted the bottom of car by some painting only. (sorry, it seemed I can`t attach any photo here)

The really "frog eyed" car was the Austin-Healy Sprite.

Nice build. I love the GS kits and have built several and they often do cars that no one else does. I wish they're reissue all of these small sports car kits.

I did the GS TR3 a few years ago after giving up on building the Minicraft version. My most recent Gunze build was to convert their Citroen 2CV into a 2CV panel van.
