Model: NSX (NA2)
Brand: Make Up Co., Ltd. / Eidolon
Part Number: EM585
Release Date*: Released
It is a model that faithfully reproduces the "NSX (NA2001)" that underwent a big minor change in 2.
In producing the prototype, as with the NSX-R, we performed a 3D scan of the actual vehicle, and based on the data collected there, we aimed for a plain model that does not involve any subjective deformation such as intentional emphasis on shape.
The basic body shape of the standard car is the same as the NSX-R, but the details are different, such as the lack of ducts for the front hood and the rear under diffuser, and the rear wing is also a standard design. In the actual car, the differentiation is based on whether or not parts are installed, but in the model car, the body is integrally molded, so the entire body is redesigned anew and a new prototype is produced.
The fixed headlights, which are characteristic of the late model, have a housing molded in white metal, chrome plated on it, and an ultra-thin transparent cover is covered with a realistic configuration similar to that of the actual car, giving you a realistic finish that makes you feel the power of the eyes.
At first glance, the interior looked similar to the already released NA1, but since there were differences in the upholstery of the seats and leather and the texture of the gusset, we decided to design it newly based on 3D scan data.
The wheels are painstakingly painted on white metal cast parts that can be sharply modeled to create an atmosphere just like a real car.
When it comes to NSX model cars, attention tends to focus only on the NSX Type R and NSX-R, but the standard model that stands out for its NSX-like sleek is also really attractive.
After the first NSX appeared in 1990, the Type R, which would later become an icon of Honda Sports, was released in 1992, and in 1997 (Heisei 12) (2000) As a response to exhaust gas regulations, the engine displacement was expanded from the old 3.0 liters to 3.2 liters (AT cars remained 3.0 liters) and shifted to a mid-term model.
Taking this opportunity, 3.0-liter cars are generally called NA1 and 3.2-liter cars are called NA2.
And in 2001, major changes were made to the previously unchanged exterior, and the retractable headlights, which were promised equipment of supercars, were abolished and replaced with a fixed type in the late model. It is said that this has led to improved aerodynamic performance when the lights are on, improved collision safety, and reduced the weight of the front mass. In 2002, the NSX-R was released with reduced weight, improved engine response, and enhanced suspension, and was produced until 2005 while maintaining its marketability.
Our make-up was born in a room in "Central Apartment" in Harajuku, Tokyo in 1978.
Its history begins when our representative Hideyuki Uemoto was inspired by the model culture of his area at the annual "Model Engineer Exhibition" held at Wembley Park in the United Kingdom.
Here, we will deliver the history of our company by interweaving Uemoto's own recollections.

About Resin Models:
Although higher in price, resin models offer an extreme amount of detail and precision. The finish is near flawless in presentation, they are limited in production, they offer a ton of photo-etch details and some of the tiniest features are shown. Resin models are especially great when it comes to makes, models and aftermarket styles that we often do not see when it comes to our favorite cars. These are offered in every model car scale and great for the collector minded people that want something unique from every angle.
