It is finally for sale at HLJ, man I can't spend any more money cause that would be insane! Seriously though I think it looks pretty sweet buy I don't know about fujimi's typical little ass wheels. Too bad the Rx-8 is still not for sale yet cause when it is I will probably break and buy them both.

I guess that's cool. :wink:

I wonder if Tamiya will be making one?

Dam! Why don't they make another kit!

Is the Enzo the last kit they made?

The FW24 was after the Enzo too, I think. But the enzo is the last 1/24 Sports Car Series car. You're right, it is time for something new......

Oh, and the Semi-assembled stuff that's useless for us.

Looks pretty nice, but still it's Fujimi :( I hope Tamiya makes a version!

Nice photos, but I only said about the photos. The kits could be crap. Reminder: it's FUJIMI.

Nothing to do with the model but that scoop it very aggressive. My GF drives a Subaru and with out the "Subaru Eyes" (foglights) it doesn't look right.

I've always had bad luck with Fujimi... specially their lack of detail on the wheels they include. Anyways lets see what you guys can turn it into.

What the hell are they doing with parts F1 AND F2.
I dont even want to start thinking how the fitting of those two bits will look like !!

Possibly designed like that so that custom effects can be added later in other versions. Looks like that area is recessed though, so they should sit flush with the rest of the bumper.

Looks like an interesting model.

But with the bonnet, it has a little recess to put the front facing scoop on, but could you dremel out the recess and have the scoop facinf towards the car, then carbon fibre it....i made up the idea on the spot...i think it would look pretty cool.

Also looking at the box contents...the wheels look small....real small...

Check out the pic of the real car as that is how they fit

Looking at those photos, and considering I just finished the Ver.5 Fujimi kit, it looks like Fujimi cheated and used some of the molds from the original Impreza molds they had and just updated the body and maybe a few other things.

The whole chassis and interior tub looks the same as the one I just built, to me at least.

Unless somebody can prove otherwise, I don't see me buying one of these kits....

Yes, but why the need to have them as seperate pieces when it could easily be just one molding with relevant panel lines.
