Fujimi Mazda RX-7 Spirit R 1/24

Fujimi Honda Civic Type-R EK9 1/24 completed December 24th, 2018.

Pros:

It's the only kit of an EK9 Civic Type R, and it assembles easily. It looks right once the ride height is altered.

Cons:

Curbside. Interior doors lack any detail. Ride height is too high, boxed wheels seem a little on the small side.

Verdict:

It builds up into a nice model kit of te Civic Type-R with only a small amount of effort. Recommended.

Build notes:

It took me about 3 months to complete this one, mainly due to work travel commitments, and two of the panels on the car got black paint leaked into them whilst spraying the winder surrounds, needing a lot more masking and respraying of those panels. Alterations to the boxed kit are: Scratch built seatbelts retainers, Rear seatbelts, interior carpets, door cards and some other interior details added. Ride height lowered by about 1mm. Wheels exchanged for Aoshima Rays 57Xtreme 18 inch. Moulded front mesh removed and replaced with real mesh. Red Honda badge decals replaced with shinier ones from Hobby Design (HD01-0045).


Kit bought in Tokyo, June 2017
