Honda City Turbo. Update 3-28-13

Posted (edited) · Report post

This will be my next build. Not much to look at I guess but there is just something about it that looks cool to me. This should be a quick build as it is a pretty simple kit. At some point there must have been a electric motor in some version of this kit. Parts, what there is of them are nice and clean. It is a curbside kit so no engine. The wheels seem a little undersized to me but once built they may be ok. Feel free to laugh ! : )

I think it's a cool car and would probably be a blast to drive!

Pretty sure it was once motorized - at least the stock City had that option "back in the day".

Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I can't find any plastic car kits on their website. ".com" seems to be all diecast and ".net" seems to be all figurines.

Seriously cool little cars....enraged rollerskates. Needs a V6 sitting sideways in the back seat, sorta like the Ford Festiva Shogun.

Tiny cars. They never sold them in the US, but I did get to see one in person, Its about the same size as the old Ford Festivas.

That would be cool . Doesn't Jay Leno have one of those Festiva's ?

Got a little done on this wip. Body was painted using metalliac black. Center of wheels were tinted gold. Wheels still look too small to me but we will see when finished. Interior side panels still need another coat of paint and body has not been cleared yet.
