14 - Tamiya 1/24 Mazda 787b

December 3, 2021 · in Automotive · · 17 · 1.6K

I was given this kit semi- built and really loved completing it, I'd love to get a new one and start from scratch as it was a really nice kit, the car turned out beautifully. Only had one issue with it where half of a decal for no reason I could see crinkled on me.

Otherwise a really beautiful and fun kit.

  1. Looking amazing, Anthony!
    For me, finishing an already started kit is double the pleasure, let alone when the result is a great as yours here!

  2. Thanks Spiros - I must say I didn't enjoy working on someone else's started work - Even though it was probably better than I would have done, I want to know how and why things were done etc. But it was great to finish it off and it looks good now.

  3. That looks a great kit mate, nicely done. Don't fret about the decal issue, it happens, looks like you managed to square it away ok. Great job!

    • Thanks Tam - yeah I was getting worked up about it - trying to figure a way to get it off and then maybe respray and match the blue - In then end I just thought I'd leave it - was a learning curve and I'd probably mess it up even more trying to fix it.

  4. A wonderful build, Anthony @anthonyricco
    Even better looking than the original one I would say.
    Great pictures.

  5. Very nice Anthony @anthonyricco! ? I admire the skill you car modelers demonstrate, envious and impressed. Much "liked" my friend! ?

    • Hi Gary
      Thanks a lot - I wouldn't call myself a car Modeller - I really enjoy all the different sections of modelling. Thanks for the like and the comments though - and if you want to do it I'm sure you could build an amazing Car.

  6. The Mazda is a really cool car and you’ve made a great job of finishing this Tamiya kit.

  7. I like it, you did a great job. I've been thinking about building one of the Tamiya model car kits.

  8. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    A very satisfactory and elegant model Anthony.
    The decals as you say might have given you a little hassle, but at the end you have a good
    result, those decals give it a dressy look and accentuates the curves of the car.
    Nice one indeed.

  9. Nice work on probably the most outrageous sounding race car ever driven.
