Protoform used to make an Accord a long time ago, also a couple of the specialist apanese manufacturers have made them too, like ABC Hobby, but these are not easy to get outside of Japan.

Look on e-bay. If you are going for display or drifting, Tamiya made a gorgeous Civic and Accord bodies for the FF01 front wheel drive cars in the late '90's but the go for good $$. There are some aftermarket made ones on e-bay also. If you want one for touring car racing, Ride or Rayspeed are the way to go.

Ok, I thought they were the same, since I've seen them both, only not side by side. Are you sure?

hey civiceg, Frewer(Distibuted by Schumacher-about 3 years ago)had a honda civic Hatchback.....I had ordered a "acura Integra" body from them three years back-regretably, I had given it away. Tamiya also, makes the civic Hatchback "ala JDM Racer"
From previous photos seen in the Magazines, Tamiyas 1/10th renditions of 1/1 scale car are highly detailed[ie. mirrors,wiperblades,etc.]

I'm 100% sure, they're different in a big way, the Rayspeed Accord does look VERY similar to the Ride MKII Dodge though

There is a mail order out of Australia (rchobbies.com.au) that has some of the older protoform bodies still available as well.
