Fujimi Honda CR-X del sol

Fujimi Honda CRX del sol 1/24 completed February 17th, 2019.

Pros:

No real fitment problems, easy to assemble ,well proportioned. Easy conversion to targa top as allowed for in the kit's engineering. Lowering ride height easy due to flex in the floor pan. All mould lines are in thoughtful and/or easy to remove places.

Cons:

Curbside, no engine. Ride height (as usual). Weak mounting of side mirrors, interior lacks detail in the doors, no pedals, front suspension is easy to break. Number plates are not in keeping with the height of any other 1/24 JDM plate I've encountered and the hole for the rear one is impossible to change. Headlights lack detail and are moulded in. Boxed wheels are probably the correct size but feel a little small.

Verdict:

With some correction of many of the the cons above and some additional details, comes out very well. There's no reason to avoid this kit, especially if you like Hondas and/or the del sol.

Build notes:

Changed wheels to Modulo. Scratch built front lip, radiator, seat belt retainers, all the "stuff" around the back of the targa top roll hoop, speakers, side windows. Added seatbelts and PE buckles, added PE pedals, alcantaa carpeting, aerial. Made better mounting points for side mirrors, lowered entire car, added cables and details to underbody. Dark-tinted the rear lights, added front headlight light bulbs and indicator bulbs with plastic rod. PE Honda bages on front and rear, new front number plate. Removed automatic gearstick/area and converted to manual. Painted with Tamiya TS20 Metallic Green.
