I like your version MUCH better. Closer to an actual representation of a JGTC car. I have the Bridgestone Toyota MRS JGTC poster up in my garage. Love what you've done, very tasteful. The import racers by jada where a little ricey.

Great model conversion Technica, love the vented front hood, so tough. The only thing I would have changed was the rear wing legs, so that the wing blade sat further back over the rear of the car. Just my opinion, nothing against your workmanship. Still love it. Great job.

Thanks Wazabi! The thing I like about this model is the hard-top. Autoart made regular MR-S road cars but they don't come with soft or hard-tops sadly... And yes, the original Jada model was too ricey, especially the thick side skirts and massive 22inch rims! :omg:

Thank you SIR! It means a lot coming from a model master. I did not pay too much attention to the rear wing. Will take into consideration on the wing position for my next mod. Thanks again Rob! :occasion14:

The hood is stunning. Do you have an AutoArt MR-2? I would like to see them both together for a size comparison.

Thanks for the comment Sebastian :occasion14:

I do have AUTOart's MR-S. Although I do not have pictures of them together, the length of both are quite similar. Only thing is Jada's is wider, because it is based on JGTC. That said, it should be properly scaled at 1/18 or close.
