Where to buy a replica model of my civic?

Sounds a bit sad but i have a lot of spare time in work and would love to build myself a model of my civic. I used to build models when i was a kid so it would be nice to see if i can still do it.... Anyone got any ideas where i can get one? I've looked a lot but no luck. Close but none yet. It seems a little specialist as it's just a boring old civic. (But not to me!!)

1/25 Honda Civic Hatch 2 'n 1 (rmx852389) Revell/Monogram Plastic Model Plastic Model Car / Truck / Vehicle 1/20-1/29 Scale

I use it to try out colour schemes for my hatch before I do the repaint.

Actually it's quite surprising to me that Civics are so hard to find. Civics are one of - if not THE most popular car to tune for street racing, have been featured in The Fast & the Furious series of movies, and are arguably an 'iconic' car , just as a '69 Camaro was twenty years ago.
I too have had a hard time finding my car as a model, yet see that there are several cars that have been made into pre painted , fully detailed scale models such as .... a 1974 AMC Gremlin ( ?????! )

I have a 5th generation Civic hatchback by the way.

I can't even find it as a 3D model , and have resorted to building one from scratch.
At times in the past I was going to create a 1/5 scale model of my car for small scale wind tunnel testing.

What year Civic do you have ? I have seen a R/C version of a third generation Civic and the 6th generation models posted above, but not much for a 5th generation - just a little hard to find one that is all of about 6" long.

What year Civic do you have ?

I have an 88 hatch and a 90 CRX HF. The model I found is not an exact match, in fact I think it is a 5th gen, but it has been close enough for me to get ideas of what paint colours would look like on mine. Lot cheaper than painting the real car and discovering that I don't like the paint after all.

Sorry about the delay. My civic is a 1992 with an EG-8 chassis. Its the saloon version. Still no luck finding it but i don't devote too much time to that.
