Been waiting to start working on the Aoshima version of the Toyota FT86, the Aoshima kit gives you five different building options, you can build it as the Scion FRS (US) the Toyota 86(Japan) GT86(EU), plus you get ride height and camber options as well

I am still unsure what version I am doing this one, but the color will be Toyota Hot Lave Met, (think orange), I have the paint on the way from Scale Finishes, so far not a lot as been done, just got the body and chassis in primer

Joe, havent done a lot, but its just like all the rest of the new Aoshima kits, everything fits fine, very little , and I mean very little flash, you wont be disappointed with the kit
