Review : Tarmac Works 1/64 Honda Civic Type R (FK2) Motul

For the first time ever in 1/64 scale thanks to Tarmac Works, the Civic Type R (FK2) made its debut in a Modulo limited edition at the HK Toy Fair alongside the Lancer Evo X Final Concept.

This Motul version is another special edition released at the Toycon 2017 in the Philippines as well as through Tarmac’s website and limited to 2544 pieces.
 

The livery is directly taken from a car running in the TCR series.

Unfortunately the race modifications are not featured on the model, which is the stock FK2.

The model itself is beautiful and the attention to detail once again striking. The rear wing is surprisingly well reproduced at this scale and the brake calipers are visible through the wheel’s spokes. The side mirrors are functional thanks to chrome stickers and there’s even a harness on the driver’s seat !

Somehow the Honda badges seem to be crooked on some of the pictures but not at all to the naked eye. Not sure why, probably the lighting. The only defect visible on our model is the Motul plate at the rear of the car not really straight.

Except for this minor inconvenience this is a very satisfying model. The livery is simple but effective.

Many different versions of the Civic Type R (FK2) are already scheduled in the Hobby64 line: Crystal Black Pearl, Milano Solid Red, Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic, Championship White, Castrol WTCC livery and Advan livery ! If you like the FK2 Tarmac definitely got you covered.
