Ah yes. A model courtesy of none other than ModelCitizen’s very own Patrick. This masterpiece is artfully crafted by Ebbro in 1:18. What’s more surprising.. the fact that Ebbro made a 1:18.. the fact that the model offers full opening.. or the fact that it’s diecast and not resin?
This model was initially not on my radar by any means. I knew Patrick had a few available but had no automatic desire to jump on one for the very reason that every Ebbro I have ever seen are all resin... so I thought having a 1:18 diecast version was too good to be true. My god I was wrong.
Although it’s not necessarily the best model or the most well executed, it’s still nice to see this little niche fill in a roll that otherwise would not have existed. I would definitely recommend this to any JDM fans.. however, if you are just looking for the best bang for the buck, this wouldn’t necessarily be the best piece to start with.
