I've been looking for this model for quite some time, then i realise that it's not available, unless it a resin kit that will cost me a bomb, so i decided to scratch build and use Toyota Levin Te27 from fujimi as it base. I start this project from Nov last year,This is the progress so far.

Welcome. :)

And.....WOW!

That has to be the best transformation I've seen in a very long time. Two thumbs up my friend, GREAT work going on there. B)

If you had posted saying you made it from a Toyota (without pics) I would have called you on it. Simply incredible the work just to get the correct shape. Bravo! :)

This is a great conversion! I would've had a hard time believing it started as a Toyota either without the pics. Someone really needs to make this as a kit.

Are you doing the gold wheels and rally lights like Brian's Escort in Fast and Furious 6? If so, it could sure go with the F&F community build.

Thanks,

F&F 6 was what inspired me and the death of Paul Walker made me started this build. And yeah, i agreed they should have made this kit in 1/24.

Can i ask? where is this F&F community builds?
