I believe this is my first review post of One Model. There has been a buzz these days about their 1/18 NSX-R NA2. Well I just received a few of them in my collection. All I can say is WOW...This car looks amazing. The packaging make this model look very highend. The pictures that One Model released does not do it justice. IMO this has to be one of the best 1/18 NSX NA2 models available.
One Model released the NSX-R NA2 in White, Red, Yellow and Sliver. The paint quality is definitely one of the best I've seen so far. It is almost close to perfection. No orange peel present. For the price One Model is charging for this car ($340.00 CDN), you better expect a good quality paint finish. For me the Red and Silver versions are my favorites.
Although this car is a sealed resin model, it is very detail. The interior of the NSX is very visible. I was very impressed with the finish for the two Recaro racing seats. One Model did a great job recreating the seat finish. PE seat belts are clearly visible.
The dash board and instrument panels are well replicated. One detail, One Model did really well is getting rid of the plastic parting lines on steering wheel and steering columns and switches as you can see in the pic. The Honda "H" symbol on the steering wheel is also very visible.
Another detail that I noticed are the base window trims. Instead of printing the trims on a flat acetate plastic sheets (ie GT Spirit style), One Model actually modeled the base window trims with a raised NSX logo. Speaking of windows, the plastic used to simulate the glass windows are super clear. No signs of any waves in the plastic or any excess glue.
The NSX-R's 3.2L V6 DOHC VTEC engine is very visible along with the engine mesh. The engine is well painted. I only wished One Model actually place some engine wires and hoses. Not a deal breaker, but I am very satisfied. If you are brave enough, you can take the car apart and add these details and enhancements.
Another detail that really stands out on this model, are the panel lines. They really standout. The panel lines are sharp, and deep and looks to scale.
Other details about this model are the 3D Honda logo on the front hood and on the rear trunk.
The rims and brakes have been replicated to scale really well. And you should expect this. One item not too many model companies include are tire valves. Nice job One Model.
As you can tell, I really like this model alot. The NSX is one of my dream car. When I first saw the NSX at the Toronto Autoshow back in 1990, I fell in love with it.
BTW, One Model is releasing a NSX NA1. I wonder how well it will stack up against AutoART?
