For some unknown reason, I gave myself the goal of making a post every day this week. But I ran into a problem, I didn’t get a chance to prepare one yesterday, and I won’t have time this evening. So since this is a lunch-time post, I need to be brief. Which gets us to the Lexus, as it is a vehicle I have absolutely nothing to say about. I guess I could credit it with creating the luxury crossover niche, but thone few words alone are making me sleepy.
So how did I end up with a model of this snooze fest on wheels? That’s what happens when your collection theme is essentially “buy all 1/18s”.
The model is an early AUTOart, but it can still hold its own against a lot of newer models. It’s really only lacking a headliner and newer door hinges. Somewhat unusual for the brand is a working spring suspension. Of course being an AUTOART, it also features a hood and tailgate that don’t stay open on their own. And if you think their models are too plastickey (plasticy? How do you spell a word that doesn’t exist?), look elsewhere as the entire lower half of the body is made of that material. The tires look a little high profile to my eyes, but the model displays well otherwise. Now excuse me, I need to take a nap.
