DEVELOPMENT OF 1986 1/18 SUBARU BRAT 2ND GEN
Subaru Brat in its 2nd generation is another DNA Collectibles exclusivity.
We will focus on the process to develop this iconic Subaru at scale 1/18 and try to show you some hidden details and story behind this model car.
Thanks to the success of our 1/43 Subaru Brat developed in 2018, our community requested us to do it at the bigger scale. However we wanted to offer something different. Therefore we asked you in a poll if we should copy the little sister or go with the generation 2 of the Brat. So here we are.
On the first step of development while working on the 3D rendering, we tried to add as many details as possible in order to give you the most realistic scale model. For example, on the cargo area, which is quite simple without the seats, we asked the engineer to include the shape of the six little handles located on the sides. Also reproducing the tiny seat belts fixations between the Jumpseats was complicated, as we hardly found out that they are inverted when comparing to the usual fixations in the cabin.
Let's have a look on the unpainted samples, called Master in the scale model car industry, and you can have an insight of the final model. You can see the proportions and all details and spare parts included in the sample.
