Not a very well detailed kit from Fujimi. The less said about the underside the better, and the interior is well out of proportion too. Having at the time of build a 1:1 scale RX-8 to refer to in the garage, I can see that the parcel shelf is too long, the interior too short and the rear seats therefore too far forward. I corrected this with some plasticard. I also shaved off the much too big inner wheel rims. However after a lot of hacking about I was pleased with the final result, especially when photographed on the real RX-8 that served as the models inspiration.
