MiniGT Honda Civic Type R FK8

Malaysia, despite being car crazy and sporting a healthy tuner lifestyle, is surprisingly low on the scale of places where you can pick up a good die-cast. I did manage, though, and walked away from BMW’s M-Track Days 2019 (story above) with a MiniGT Honda Civic, hastily purchased from the duty free shops at the KL airport.

For a price of RM 50 (roughly BDT 1000), the 1:64 FK8 Honda Civic Type R (mine in Aegean Blue, with Modulo aftermarket bits) carries fantastic detailing and spot-on scale—while it may be larger than every other 1:64 scale from other manufacturers, the logos, lights and intricate details all look scaled to proportion. The paint and interior details are great too. On to the quibbles—the mirrors are rubber, and one of the wheels have a casting issue where its not a complete circle, reportedly a common issue with MiniGT. Another common issue, similar to Tarmac Works, are the larger-than-scale shut-lines. Otherwise, fantastic buy. Congratulations to me.
