Solido E36 M3 Drift Missile

The Solido E36 is a pretty crappy model. But then again it's very cheap so not much to complain about.

The HM Sports kit does look quite nice so I thought I'd build one



It's not a very interesting model so I only took one pic before it went into the paint stripper



Speaking of which



And under the knife it goes. Had to saw out hood, half of side skirts, a little bit at the front and the rear bumper.



Here is the kit from TK Diecast



And a very rough and early mock up before the real work begins







Stay tuned

Why would you say the base model is crappy?

it's just very very cheap. No engine or trunk, headlight lenses feel cheap. I think it probably has 15-20 parts in total. Basic model. Bburago/Maisto level. B pillar window is wrong shape as well
Are you going to add an engine to it? Or just a replacement hood (couldn't see one)?

gonna add an engine. So will have to scratch build either an engine bay or a front drift subframe

I will be looking forward to this build! And I partially agree that Solido "could" have done better. Its almost shades of the UT M3 with a couple tweaks to appear as improvements......but for the price, hey who is going to argue.

yeah exactly. Although I've had some steals on fb marketplace on autoarts that cost me what I paid for the Solido lol

Looking good so far Wes. Can't wait for your build progress updates. Adding an engine will be top notch. Now I am thinking to repaint my solido supra.

Thanks! Will you be getting any of the upcoming Supras from Well/LCD, etc? Can't keep up with who's making what anymore lol

Yes I think it's LCD who is making it. Too many announcements and slow releases
