Acura Integra S2000
Posted by Scale-Master on Saturday, August 29, 2020 1:18 PM
Built from a sectioned & narrowed Tamiya S2000 and a Revell Integra back in the early 2000's.   I found the photos last week while doing some spring cleaning.
It earned a 1st Place in a Custom Clinic Contest. It was spawned from a Common Kit contest at a local model contest. The Integra was the common part.
I purposely used the same size wheels and tires all around because neither platform would be all that conducive for this configuration. The front is a RWD car, and except for the exterior bodywork the rear is a FWD car. I guess it would be better as a RWD, but that's the beauty of curbsides...
I always thought it interesting how so many people thought it should be made in real life even though it could not be done logistically due to the platforms of the two cars and that they were different scales too. 

Build what you want and build it for yourself, the rest will follow... Mark D. Jones

Looks so cool, looks just like a Ferrari 612 with Nissan s15 back or similar, definitely a very different model in a good way of couse
