Amazing: customized AE86 diecast model

At first I could not believe these two diecasts are customized and painted by hand:
Initial D and Drift Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86

But they actually are: Gee is doing a lot of diecast customization and he does it all by himself!

See the details yourself:

First he takes them apart. He uses a mix of tape and gum to mask the panda scheme first before painting the body.

Almost perfect panda scheme!

Here you can see the rear it has got an almost perfect panda scheme: only the black line above the taillights should be much much thinner.

After painting he modifies the wheels and put everything back together. In this case he painted them black but some others received wheels from other diecasts.

You can see the end result well on this picture of both cars:
The finished product: perfect Initial D AE86

Both AE86s look stunning! Almost hard to believe they are only 1/64 scale!

And doesn’t this look familiar?

It is only missing the oil spots on the windscreen and fenders. 😀
