2003 Toyota Matrix (Any Scale)
Posted by Geistygal on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 7:57 AM

Hi there, should preface this by saying I don't know jack about cars or car models. I normally build lots of Gundam models and I wanted to make a birthday gift for my father of the 2003 Toyota Matrix he used to have when I was a kid. I can't find any models of it anywhere; do they exist? Any scale is fine. If they exist, please let me know!

I don't know of anybody who produces a 2003 Toyota Matrix in model form or as a promotional model.  Maybe you could check out Hobby Link Japan and see what they have.  Good luck!

There's no Matrix that I know of, but the Pontiac Vibe was available as a 1/24 diecast. It shouldn't take too much work to do a conversion from that.

Hi,

 

So, I was able to find a 1/18 model, but it's 70 dollars and it's a diecast model. I should clarify that I'm looking for a MODEL KIT,  something I can assemble and put a lot of hard work into.

 

I don't think they make any model kits of this car, but I think I can modify another model kit to look more like the Matrix. Does anyone have any recommendations of model kits of cars with similar shapes that can be easily modified?
