REVIEW: LCD 1:18 Suzuki Jimny Sierra a Pictorial Review

Post by channabasanna » Mon Nov 30, 2020 7:16 am

Hello All,

Added another LCD model to my collection and this time it is the Lime Green 1:18 Suzuki Jimny Sierra. After seeing a real car on road and LCD doing it in 1:18 i decided to get it, the model is very well detailed, for a diecast model which is priced less this is a gem of a model.

Some of the highlights of the model are:
Photoetched front grill, seat belt buckles
Seat belts feel realistic
Textured Seats
Detailed dash
Foldable Rear seats.
Foldable mirrors.
Detailed lights and indicators
Detailed underchassis.
Working shaft.

Lets do a pictorial review:

Detailed Front Grill and Headlights: Can see radiator behing the grill

Detailed Engine bay: The Engine bay is detailed and well replicated. Also is the real car engine picture from google.

It looks great! What don't you like? Also, the question needs to be asked, why so many brands are bringing this to market? :scratchhead:

Yes KRAFTIG, it is indeed a good model. For the price point i have very less negative. Probably a little wobbly front right wheel in my model is the only negative. Which probably can be fixed if i inspect it carefully. But other than that there is no real reason to don't like.

Exactly, it is quite popular in Asia given its size, ride height for pot hole filled roads :D

Very good.

BM Creations created a beautiful model too, back in 2019. More than enough detail here to satisfy the market:
