I ran across this little beauty in the hobby store and just had to have it. I recently finished (and posted the article for) the Cutty Sark clipper, and after all that tedious rigging I decided this would be a nice break. It is a snap-togethe[...]
My latest build, A 1991 Honda Beat.
You won’t find one of these on your local used car lot. The Beat was never sold in the USA. A few have made their way here as grey market cars.

Great kit with perfect fit.
