Tamiya Toyota Minolta 88C-V | Model Kit Index

Tamiya Subaru XT / Alcyone

Tamiya Toyota Minolta 88C-V completed 16th April 2017.

Background:

This is a car I've used a lot in Gran Turismo over the years. I love the Minolta livery and as a shape this car just looks right to me. One of my favorite car/livery combinations from the Group C era.

Pros:

The usual Tamiya attention to detail, and it has an engine. Ripe for adding extra details to. Decals were easy to apply.

Cons:

None that I can think of, aside from the engine could use a few more detail parts within the box.

Verdict:

Very recommended if you're looking to build endurance cars from this era.

Build notes:

I added a few details to the interior and then quite a lot to the engine bay, mostly in the form of hoses and cables.
