Fujimi Toyota MR2 AW11 1/24

Fujimi Toyota MR2 AW11 completed September 23rd, 2017.

Background:

This is my second favourite MR2 after the SW20, which I've also built. I do like the whole "two tone" colour scheme from Japan and this car seemed like a good one to take it, despite knowing it'd be a more tricky masking operation around the curnved wheel arches.

Pros:

It has a partial engine, which is great. Proportions look good to me. Ride height is OK. Considering this kit is from Fujimi's "It's only OK" era, it's surprisingly good.

Cons:

No side windows in the box. Front windscreen doesn't fit all that well and the general fitment of some parts is kind of "soft". If you've built Fujimi of this era you'll know what I mean.

Verdict:

It's the only AW11 you're going to find in 1/24 form and it builds up into a good depiction of the real thing with no real problems or excessive reworking. Pretty much all the same comments as applied to the Fujimi MR2 SW20.

Build notes:

I changed the wheels, deailed the engine, added the side windows and a few other bits and pieces. It's half Tamiya silver and half Tamiya gun metal.


Kit bought in Tokyo, 2016.
