    New old japanese "tin" from HPI (rc car content..)

    i like the quality much better than the ABC cars.. sadly, i will probably be getting the 73 Carrera RS instead of the 510 or Z.. but hey, they are just body sets right?


    if you look in the "calendar" section, you can find a sneak peak at the porsche and a some sick pictures of the 510/Z..

    really nice..smaller than the usual 1/10 kits..that means great to get carried around inside your nostalgig Jtins...

    I dig that smaller-scale Levin.

    I've got an S15, R34, FD, and some other bodies for a Tamiya TTO1 chassis. Removed the front drive setup, so it's RWD instead of AWD.

    I don't have any old school bodies for it. The closest I come to that is this Hako (Tamiya 1:24th) GT-R:

    And a Levin...

    ...and a bit newer, but my Silvia on my Silvia...

    Sweet thread!

    So many cool models to build. I stopped when I realized how much $$$ I was spending on fake cars, while my own cars were left largely unmodified.
