I had always been interested in
building a model of this topic. Back in 2013 I learnt of a large scale resin
kit of the Bladerunner Spinner yet the cost was prohibitive - something in
the order of £500 I recall. Then I missed the launch of this Fujimi kit and
only learnt of its existence at the end of 2014. I got one for about £35 off
Amazon via a wholesaler in Hong Kong. This remains a ludicrously expensive
kit for what it is. As you can see from the photos you do not get much for
your money if you pay the UK recommended price which is
I checked out a few reviews and
then purchased both the kit and the Paragrafix photoetech set. I
had used Paragrafix on the Millennium Falcon and was happy with
the result. However, try as hard as I could I could not find an
LED lighting kit for the model. Astonishing! There are generic
kits available for model Police Cars so we might get lucky.
Oddly enough despite the use of the word "Spinner" the Japanese
don't seem to use the word "Bladerunner" in connection with the
kit. Other than the photoetch the only aftermarket accessory are
the two figures for the cabin that are only available from
under the name of "Future Detectives". Yet the figures are certainly those from the movie.
Deckard is even holding his pot of noodles!
In 2018 the chap(s?) at "Miniature Universe", who
sell resin accessories over on EBay France, started selling
street-scene diorama items for this model. So I snapped them
