Did you notice the new brakes, and wheel attachment engineering? The engine is a molded upper half deal also. :rolleyes: I guess it will make a decent model, but I'd rather have them spend time and money doing a full engine rather than a brake/hub redesign. :mad:

Thanks for the heads up, Chris... I know where the next paycheck is going!!

Mixed feelings about the engine... Mock-up = meh, but for 'just a mock-up' I think it looks pretty good. The engine hatch doesn't look like it opens anyway...

Wheels look fine to me. The real car only has 17" wheels anyway. You guys are obsessed. :rolleyes:

Looks like they forgot the center console blank-out plate. Looks like thay also forgot the decals for the wing stays...

Interesting that the windshield and side windows are separate... Wonder if the NSX will have the roof pre-scored for the NSX-T.

In any case, I can't wait to get my hands on it. Especially in order to put it next to the Tamiya kit... to see what exchanges may be possible... :thinkerg:

Agreed, it looks awesome, the holy grail for NSX lovers.

I , for one, am eagerly awaiting the release of the RX-8!

And slightly off topic here ; does anyone knows if the RX-8 will also be available from Tamiya? Because there have been some speculations about this car, but for now, the closest I can get my hands on is off course the Fujimi model coming out ...

Looks good but would have been better is there was an actual engine.

2600 yen for a Fujimi kit?!?!? That's the same price as the 360 Modena and nearly the same as the Enzo, both far more detailed......

It doesn't matter, if you want an updated NSX, it's the only game in town. :smile:

What exactly has been updated from the 90s NSX, apart from the bonnet, brakes and headlight area? And speaking of which, the headlights look very similar to that of the 360 modena.

The normal NSX got cosmetic revisions to:
Headlights
Front bumper/valence
Rear bumper/valence
Taillights

Then they added the NSX Type R back into the NSX lineup, which additionally has:
Different Bonnet (c/f, IIRC)
Different Wing (c/f, IIRC)
Paint-matched headlights
Mesh cut-out engine cover
Fancier brakes
'Stripped' interior, featuring:
-Recaro seats
-Momo steering wheel
-no radio

All that, with no major revisions to the engine... :eek: The focus of the Type R is weight savings.
