1986 Toyota Supra
A friend gave me this kit 30+ years ago for being an usher at his wedding. He chose the '86 Supra from Testors/Fujimi because, at that time, I owned a 1987 Supra. The model sat in its box until earlier this summer when I decided to build it.
This kit is one of those half toy/half model kits. There's no "engine" under the hood because there's a holder for two AAA batteries. A metal rod used as the rear axel has a large gear press fitted that would engage with an electric motor mounted under the cargo cover. The model didn't come with any of the wiring or the motor, but it did have two sets of bucket seats, two dashboards (RH and LH drive), a roll bar, and parts for building the headlights in the open position.
I spent a fair a mount of time sanding down moulding lines in the body and filling in various dips in the body surface. I was going to make the Turbo version with the rear spoiler, but it was so badly molded that I decided to delete the spoiler, just like the real Supra I used to own.
Building this model brought back old memories of my "Super Car" from the late 80's and some of the big Tamiya F1 cars (a Brabham and a John Player Special Lotus) models I built as a kid.
