With 1:64 Kyosho models been the talk lately in LaLD, I decided to dig out my only 1:64 model from that brand and share it here. This is the #33 Nissan R390 GT1 in 1998 Pre-Qualifications livery from the 2007 Beads Collection.
It all started from a clearance sale that HLJ was having a couple of years ago, I decided to exploit their automotive section for some good deals. The stuff they wanted out of their warehouse are plastic models, but then this gem showed up after a bit of scrolling through. The discount was huge, the offer proved too great to ignore and it was added to my cart.
I couldn't prepare for what I was in for when this arrived with my shipment of goodies, this is a beauty. Before I got this, I was an ignorant fool for thinking that "Beads Collection" is silly name for a line of miniatures. After a bit of research, I quickly thought otherwise; the Beads Collection is Kyosho's premium line for 1:64 scale models. All models were only sold in Japan market and have become a hard-to-find collection in the collector's market, unfortunately its production was ceased about 4 years ago.
To be able to find a discontinued model and have it on clearance, I gotta count my lucky stars. Race cars have their storied past, so I'm going to omit that and let the images do their work.
Thanks for looking through!
