INNO is a newcomer in the diecast world. I previously gave an introduction to their 1:64 line on LaLD a few weeks ago. Here are a few more details about the product:

The display case is about the same size as Tarmac Works and other premium 1:64 brands. The edges of the case are more rounded and a lot smoother. The case quality is a lot nicer.

The base is see-through. But the edges around the bottom are a bit thicker than other similar 1:64 cases. You can stack a Tarmac Works case on top of the Inno but you can’t stack the Inno case on top of the Tarmac.

Looks like it comes with two decal sheets. It turns out one of them is actually just a piece of cardboard with decal designs printed on them. There is also a small separate sheet with a metal Honda emblem decal and latches.

The base is very plastic but also very detailed and can be screwed off.

After screwing the base off, I wasn’t able to remove the chassis from the body. Maybe it’s just stuck but I don’t want to force it. I wish I were able to because it has some gorgeous red seats with seat belts in there. Very hard to take a picture of. The wheels also come with disc brakes and calipers that are held in place by a notch.

Does it roll?

A few other FAQs to answer: The mirrors are hard and fixed, not rubber. There’s a mirror decal on them but they’re not affixed perfectly on every model (this one’s perfect). The QC is overall very good. There are some extremely tiny paint flaws, approximately the size of a speck of dust. Not a big deal. You can see the points at which the rims were detached due to some missing chrome but it’s very minor. Windows and clear parts are are all affixed cleanly, nothing even slightly out of place. Front and rear wipers are visible and casted into the windows. The exhaust pipe is colored and has a hole for depth but there’s a visible mold line on the side. License plates also have a tiny speck of plastic hanging from the frame it was detached from. TLV has this problem to. It’s quite a bit to compare to but I’m putting this almost up there with TLV in terms of quality.
