【 Bringing Back the Sport 】 Released in April 2012, the Toyota 86 is a lightweight, front-engine rear-wheel drive sports car that was co-developed by Toyota and Subaru. It is powered by a boxer 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine featuring Toyota's D-4S direct injection technology.

■Painting Tip for Wheels!
Metal-plated parts are included to depict the 17-inch wheels. Since only the face of the wheel is silver, you can use the below technique to replicate this appearance for greater realism.
1. Paint the entire wheel with Tamiya Color Enamel X-18 Semi Gloss Black.
2. Once dried, use a cotton swab dipped in X-20 Enamel Thinner to remove paint from the faces of the spokes.
3. This will be the result. If too much paint is accidentally removed, just paint the wheel with X-18 and begin again.
