Question Would you pay 4500 yen for an F20C?

Wow! I just found it here. It looks super-detailed.

Now, paying 4500 yen (approx. $45) for it may be a bit out of line. Or is it? Would you pay that much?

The pieces are made of white metal. Does anyone have experience working with white metal? I don't.

(Just in case anyone doesn't recognize the engine code, that's the 2 liter Honda S2000 powerplant.)

Wow. Now that's expensive... As for me, I'd rather buy a couple of 1/43-s from Minichamps

If you have money,then why not

$45 is a lot, but then I could easily spend that on photo etched extras for my cars!

I am trying to get away from that sort of detail now though as invariably a project takes too long, you get bored, start something else and the old projects never get finished!!!

I would just build the S2000 nice and move on!

Nice if you want that sort of thing though!

Calculation:

33.45 x 1.44 = $48.16

That's what I'd end up paying after shipping. I just can't justify it.

Ok, here are the instructions!

I just noticed I said I would pass on this!!! Never mind!!! Only money!!!

Bit dissappointed there seem to be no engine bay ancillaries! Looks like a bit of scratch building needed! I will do a search, see what else I can find!!!

If anyone can translate the Japanese, I would be greatful!!!

Their engine bay looks spectacular!!!

Any of our Japanese-reading AFers want to give Guiddy a hand?
