Found this Fast and the Furious Supra at a local swapmeet/show for $10 unbuilt. Always wanted the car so I bought it. Not to mention, I am building it for the FnF Community build thread. We all know the shortcomings of the AMT kits and this was no exception! The body was full of pitmarks and you-name-its. I wasn't too worried though, because I had prepared myself for the worst. First order of business was to (of course) open up the hood vents. Next, took to the the horrible pits all over the body (which was so thick anyway) alot of them were just easily sanded out With that behind me, I was able to get on with the show and do some fun stuff finally.......! The engine, which was mostly ok (and I do only mean mostly) got the first attention last night. The problem with it is the turbo setup made no sense at all....! So I redid it based on the actual pictures of the real car. The turbo was made from solder and the couplers are heatshrink tubing with BMF clamps. Seats are next! (No they aren't like this out of the box!......)
