There’s not really much more to say about the model itself at this point (Parts I and II cover that nicely). I will say that the quality is excellent, as always.

The set is complete!

This aspect that stands out the most to me is the paint: it is absolutely stunning in person. I believe it closely resembles the Japanese paint color Red Mica. That color was never available in the US, which is a shame. This color was also available in Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Europe, where it was called Swiss Ruby Mica (a much better name, in my opinion).

It’s such a dynamic color; it’s quite vibrant and pops in the sunlight, but it looks a lot more subdued in the shade.

The elephant in the room, as usual with this model, is that Swiss Ruby Mica is supposed to have a black roof and trunk. However, I’m working on a more permanent but reversible solution for both it and the Pearl White example on the left.

That’s all for now.
