So here is my latest Kyosho purchase. I paid quite a bit for this but I had to have it. I ended up paying $38 shipped from Japan with tracking. Its a little on the high side but I think the money is well spent. The Martini Livery alone was worth the price I paid for it. This is my 3rd Kyosho purchase, but I have plenty more on the way, a few more Porsches and a few race livery cars.
First things first this car is amazing in person the details on this car are beautiful and everywhere you look you find something else. The headlights are small pieces of plastic set in chrome plastic piece. The windows are incredibly detailed and there's even sponsor decals embedded in the red part of the livery. I honest wish I had a better camera to take some better pictures.
You can some of the sponsors better in this picture and those wheels, I wish I had a 100 sets of these wheels the 5 spoke racing rims are actual 5 spoke rims, there's no filler between the spokes. The tires look like actual race slicks and again that Livery is worth the price of admission.
There is no bad angle on this car, the proportions are perfect the fender flares are perfect and look at the beautiful fin. Speaking of the fin, look at dat ass.
Again the attention to detail is amazing on this car. The tail lights are little pieces of clear red and yellow plastic, the tail pipe nicely detailed and again sponsor logo's everywhere. Here is a closer pic of the rear end.
Once again sponsor logos on the tail fin and look at those beautiful tail lights. As I said in the beginning this car wasn't cheap and the fact there are so very few out there right now I think I got a good deal on it. I'm not sure if they are even producing this care anymore. Overall the quality is exceptional for a 1/64th car the paint is 10 out of 10, that includes all the tampos. The construction is solid and the care has some weight to it. It really hard to see inside the care I really didn't want to open it up but the interior is highly detailed. The only real complain is that the interior isn't painted but I would be hard to detail the interior anyways so it's worth overlooking. The tiny details like the headlights and taillights are a perfect. If I pulled this car of the base and took some photos in a outdoor setting I think it would be hard to tell this small car from the real thing. I am truly in awe in some of these Kyosho cars I plan to keep adding plenty more to my collection. I hope you enjoyed the little review of the car.
