1984 Mitsubishi Lancer EX Turbo GSR

Going back to the 80's, this Lancer is one of the most famous car here in the Philippines. I am happy that at last, Aoshima reproduced a very detailed JDM version. This particular model was done in resin and is immaculate in design and details. I am fortunate to have one already because its price is now quickly rising in ebay.

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.
