Review: Yo Engine Start × Peako Mitubishi Lancer Evolution
This is a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution made by Yo Engine Start in collaboration with Peako Models.
Ever since Yo Engine Start unveiled their first Evo I've always wanted one. So, when I found this one at a hobby shop during my trip to California, I had to get it.
It is incredibly detailed inside and out. That includes the nicely modelled 4G63 engine under the removable hood.
There's even detail under the rear bumper, which is also removable. If you haven't noticed already, this model also comes with it's own mini diorama.
Though there's only one mistake I could find, it is quite large. The Mitsubishi logo on the front bumper is lopsided and off-center.
Here it is with all the parts removed. These parts include: bumpers, wheels, spoiler, hood, engine and exhaust.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this model. It doesn't roll, but that's forgivable since this is really meant for display only. The lopsided Mitsubishi logo is mildly annoying although I'm sure that's not a common error. It provides a high level of detail a fairly reasonable $65 price point.
What do you think of the Yo Engine Start × Peako Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution? Is it worth $65? Is there anything that you like or dislike about it? I'm interested in seeing your opinions on this model. Thanks for reading!

@HotWheelsAndFriedChicken So many removable pieces! Can you swap bumpers, engines, and tires out to modify your Evo, even if it's inoperable?

@HotWheelsAndFriedChicken That offcenter logo is weird... Is that a sticker, or was it cast/stamped like that?
What scale is this?

@Prince-Sidon yes! They in fact make tuning kits with aero parts and wheels for these. I've got Blue #1 and Blue #2 tuning kits coming sometime soon.
@facw its 1/64 scale like pretty much everything in my collection. The logo is a photo etched sticker maybe?
@HFV Para64! I've heard nothing but good things about their stuff. Especially the Ruf Yellowbird. TLV is nice as well but sometimes their paint can be of dubious quality from what I've heard.
