1/24 Fujimi Astro "Mini-me"

Postby bobcardone [OP] » January 26th 2013, 12:04am

Finally got around to building up a 1/24 Fujimi Astro model kit I received as an Xmas present.
I tried to make it as close to my "real" Astro as possible.
The only differences are the model is AWD, has Dutch doors and seems to represent an export version.
The kit has a different exhaust routing, front side marker lights on the fenders and a different rear bumper with some kind of backup lights in it.
It is a really high quality kit with good detail and parts fit.
I'm getting some custom decals for the license plates and bass clef to match the big Astro.
Here's some pics...

I want one!
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.

Cool!Especially the outdoor pics!
Does your van have the rear pillars painted black like the model?...I like that. And I really like the emblems, first I've seen them. You've done some cool work to your van(s)
