Fujimi Mazda RX-7 Spirit R 1/24

Fujimi Honda NSX-R 1/24 completed October 30th, 2018.

Pros:

It has the top half of an engine. Proportions are good.

Cons:

Terrible to fit some parts, especially the windows that have no mounting points whatsoever. Bonnet fitment also only so-so. Underside details very soft.

Verdict:

Not recommended for beginners due to the fitment issues mentinoned above.

Build notes:

I built this one back in 2010, and in 2018 I stripped it apart and redid much of it, including the entire exterior which was paint stripped and resprayed. I was never happy with the original build and it had sat in a dust gathering place bothering me with it's crapness. I always was happy with the interior but never the outside. Amongst other problems with the original build are that I used two types of paint from different manufacturers for the black (I don't recall why) and they interfered with each other, giving a really crappy finish. Not easily visible but the door mirrors are that bad too. I also used poly cement and then super glue on the headlamp covers, because I didn't know about Micro Kristal and also, the damn things don't fit well at all either. As you can see in a later image, these transparent parts are not in a good way. These were pretty much unrescuable in the restoration so the remain as before. Aside from that I've done many little improvements and took the opportunity to make the bonnet white this time. Further information on the original build here.
