The kit looks impressive with 56 stickers to go on the Polycarbonate Body, it is the largest Mini 4WD box I have ever seen. I had to order the Tamiya PS-1 spray paint to make sure the body comes out right.
Building the chassis is the same as any other MA chassis kit, but being all black looks cool. The main difference is having the polycarbonate body. Before painting, I cut the body and the rear fin out as per the instructions. The cutting is relatively easy if you take your time. When painting the body it is done on the inside which gives a nice smooth finish.

Finished TOYOTA GAZOO Racing TS050 Hybrid
It is a very cool little car and should look great running around a track. I am not a master model builder and the stickers could have gone on better for me. But I am happy with how it looks and will be a great addition to my model cabinet.
