Well, I've had this kit since about '99. It was originally $25. So when I decided it was time to build it I researched the car on the net and came across the kit on Ebay for about $150. And I also came across a PE set for it. I sent away for the PE set and got it in four days. Amazing for a collector kit that's not in production any more. Lots of photos. Thanks for looking. Here is the box art first:



Here is a walk around the chassis with the engine and transaxle installed:













I now have the interior tub finished and I also did the insulation under the hood which came out realistic looking using that alum. duct tape. This kit may look as good as a Tamiya kit when you open the box but it does not go together as well. So here's the pictures:

Excellent job!! The Fujimi enthusiast range gives you some fantastic details. I wish they would start making the EM range again.

Thanks guys. I'm going to paint it Ferrari Red. I have the Tamiya lacquer for it. I'm just about ready to paint the body now too.

Nice chassis, tranny and engine combo Mike. Interior looks sharp too!!

A nice touch is replicating the grey HT lead covers.

I didn't know the Fujimi kits of that era were so good! By the looks of it there are no weak spots. Of course, we weren't there when you had fitting problems. Big congrats!

Just out of the paint booth. Actually it's the 3rd and final coat that needs a little polishing and then waxing. And I just finished of the spray can. I usually airbrush but I used Tamiya laquer on this one and that comes out beautiful right out of the can.
