Arii Owner's Club 1/32 '63 Honda T360


Recommended Posts

I will be building the Arii 1/32 Honda T360 for this group build. This is the most recent boxing, but it was first releases in 1988.

The T360 was the first car produced by Honda. It was a mid-engine "Sport Truck", with a 354cc engine, producing a whopping 30 hp.

 

These Arii kits are quite simple, and easy to build. This is all there is in the box, in a nice green plastic.

Instructions are all on one page, with Gunze aqueous colour call outs:

Some decals, metal axles and rubber tires are provided:

This should be fun.

I added the front end to the main body and sanded the bumper smooth. The driveshaft was added to the lower frame and axle bit. All the bits were then given a coat of Mr. Primer Surfacer 1000. I then painted some of the bits with their appropiate colours, Gunze 45 blue, and a Tamiya mix of black and grey.

So far so good.

A neat little kit, indeed. Also quite basic, thus a quick build.

 

The body has been painted now. The bumper has been sprayed with some Alclad dull aluminium. I hand painted the rubber seal around the windows with some Revell aqua paint.

The interior is pretty much done. Not much detail, but good enough for a cheap kit.

I'll put the clear parts in next and then I can close it up.

Well, I got a bit carried away, so it's all finished now. :blush:

 

Another enjoyable quick build. These little Arii kits are no high tech, super detailed kits, but just fun to build. This was my third one, and I plan to build some more in the future.

Hi Pete,

 

That's a very nice model.  Planning to build more, where do you get your kits?  I have been looking for a Daihatsu '57 Midget to build.

 

cheers,

 

Mike
