Hello All,

Added another LCD model to my collection and this time it is the Lime Green 1:18 Suzuki Jimny Sierra. After seeing a real car on road and LCD doing it in 1:18 i decided to get it, the model is very well detailed, for a diecast model which is priced less this is a gem of a model.

Some of the highlights of the model are:
Photoetched front grill, seat belt buckles
Seat belts feel realistic
Textured Seats
Detailed dash
Foldable Rear seats.
Foldable mirrors.
Detailed lights and indicators
Detailed underchassis.
Working shaft.

Lets do a pictorial review:

Detailed Front Grill and Headlights: Can see radiator behing the grill

Detailed Engine bay: The Engine bay is detailed and well replicated. Also is the real car engine picture from google.

That is a very nice model, thanks for the photos and review! I've been very close to ordering it a few times but never did, when I find the one in baby blue or dark green I will order one.

Congrats on the add! :eusa_clap:  LCD is on a roll, their models keep going from strength to strength on every new release! Also, usually an excellent value for their quality level!

I ended up getting the BM Creations one, but haven't been outside to take proper pics this entire year. :gaah:  Seeing your pics makes me want to and maybe to also add an LCD to do a side by side comparison! :yahoo:
Cheers! :occasion14:

Thank you David. Indeed as you mentioned in your Mclaren thread they should come up with more make and models. At their pricing, they will be surely rock. For the price of 79 USD worth it.

This looks so much better than BM Creations. I know it because I bought one and subsequently sold it.

This seems to have fully functional front and rear suspensions too? That was the party trick of BM Creations but alas, the fascia was not 'Jimny' enough with the headlights and grille proportions not properly dialed in. This one looks very good.

That's what was bugging me too. Once it was pointed out, that's when I was a bit disappointed. However, the chassis is matching more so on the BM Creations one. I can't get over how LCD painted the chassis silver, like on every color to boot. That said, I like that LCD got the facia characteristics right. So, it's worth an add just because of that. :occasion14:

Apart from the engine bay which seems a little underwhelming compared to the rest of the model, it is indeed an another great effort by LCD. And a great review as always :occasion14: :yahoo:

Thank you Chaim.

One of the best budget models i would say. Probably engine details could be better, but at that price we can not complain on the model.

The engine looks quite bad compared with other LCD models and compared with the real car, other than that looks good.

True, but for the price tag it is not bad. May be few tweaks with modders will make it look great.
