This is a review of the NuNU Mitsubishi Lancer Turbo ’82 Rally of 1000 Lakes race car by Platz Hobby.
Disappointed that there’s no engine. It is curbside kit.
Interior is wonderfully engraved and fits extremely well. Very little, if any, flash needed to be cleaned up. Did not even have to paint some of the parts.
Body was crisp and clean with no flash. I used HOK snow white pearl on the body, applied decals, and then sprayed 1 coat of clear to protect the decals. While the instruction sheet for the decals was available, I found them to be lacking in sufficient detail to apply correctly, especially on the door posts.
The suspension parts are separate from the chassis pan as is the exhaust system. Some of the parts are pretty small and care must be taken when working with them.
The instructions are several pages long with sufficient detail in most areas.
This was a very enjoyable kit to work on. There are more positives than negatives, the only negative being that there is no engine subassembly included. Thank you to Platz for providing this kit for reviews by IPMS, and to IPMS for allowing me to review this kit.
