This is the kit:

Basically a downmarket el cheapo version of the Gunze Sangyo offering with no engine etc.

Overall I'd give this kit 8 out of 10. Virtualy no flash, sink marks or injection pin marks.

Fit was good also, particularly the front and rear bumpers.

I'd have given it 9/10 if it were not for the fact that the door cards had to be heavily modified and the window rubbers are quite a way out of scale.

Don't even think of asking why I didn't replicate the rubber windows seals chrome insert.

One to recommend.
