Footwork FA13 by Modeler's

Hauptkategorie: Reviews Kategorie: Footwork FA13 Mugen (1992)
Veröffentlicht: Dienstag, 27. Oktober 2009

This is an out-of-production plastic kit made by Modeler's.
The FA13 was not particular successful. But this is one of the rare 1/20 plastic injection kits not made by Tamiya.

This kit has many many parts to build a detailed version of the car including the Mugen/Honda engine.
The quality seems almost on Tamiya level, but some components of the car are completely missing, i.e. the intake trumpet...

Kit data
Media: Plastic, rubber tires, decal sheet (Cartograph)
Scale: 1/20
Origin: Japan
Issue Price: 2000 yen

Lotus 109 Mugen/Honda by Shunko

Hauptkategorie: Reviews Kategorie: Lotus 109 Mugen (1994)

This is a resin transkit made by Japanese modeler "Shunko".
It was sold through Japanese Yahoo!Auctions and is also available at Auto Modeler's Cafe.

Obviously, this transkit was made with a Tamiya 107B as base...

This kit needs parts of the Tamiya Lotus 107B and also the Museum Collection Lotus 107C/109 decal sheet to complete.
The quality of the resin is not as crisp as recent Studio27 kits, but I think at least as good as the MOA Lotus 100T transkit.

Kit data 
Media: Resin, white metal
Scale: 1/20
Origin: Japan
Issue Price: 13800 yen (Yahoo!Japan auction)
