SHOWCASE

This is a pretty old Revell kit reboxed by Tamiya for Japanese distribution only in 1990. They changed the wheels in the box made by Tamiya but everything else is the Revell kit. The kit is very rare and difficult to buy nowadays. The quality is not the best. Window part is smaller than the place where you have to insert. The original wheels are crap and the exhaust end pipes are very small. These parts went to the trash immediately. I used 21 inch after market wheels, made exhaust end pipes from plastic and re organized the suspension for the new wheels. The bonnet was twisted it was really a hard job to make it correct. Made seatbelts and wires into the engine bay. The work was around 150 working hours. Used Tamiya primer and Zero Paints for the final color. For chrome parts I used Molotow chrome. Finished with AK Gloss lacquer.
