Event : All Japan Model & Hobby Show – Oversteer and Kyosho

Oversteer products could be found with 1/43 Hi-Story and Modeler’s, all of them being distributed by Interallied.

After the beautiful Toyota 86 and Mazda CX-5 (both amongst the finest 1/64 cars ever released in our opinion), the third model will be the Mazda Roadster RS. It is very similar to the 25th Anniversary edition recently sold by the Japan Post in Hiroshima and now we know it was Interallied who produced it. The RS version will be available in white, red, black, silver, gray and blue.

Oversteer also announced the Nissan GT-R Nismo and Nismo N-attack Package, exactly like Tomytec did. It will be very interesting to compare the final products from the two best 1/64 diecast makers. The prototype already looks very nice.

In contrast to Interallied’s tiny booth, Kyosho’s booth was huge and, as usual, focused mostly on RC models and slot cars.

In 1/64 scale the incredibly hard to find 2013 and 2014 JKB86 were on display but unfortunately not for sale.

The new Kyosho line consisting of recycled models from the SunKus collections was revealed to the public for the first time. All models come from the Ferrari Racing 2 and Lamborghini 5 collections, with new colors and an acrylic display case.

The first car to be available will be the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster (in red or gray). This one will be released in October with a booklet in collaboration with Model Car magazine. Release dates for the other cars are unknown (if they ever make it to the shelves). So far, it includes the Lamborghini Huracan, Miura P400, Jota, Gallardo, Murcielago R-GT, Countach LP500S and Silhouette, and the Ferrari 512BBLM, F40GTE and 599XX.

 

Another 1/64 car on display was the 2014 Toyota Hiace Super GL. As usual with Kyosho little is known yet.

And that’s it for 1/64. The resin line scheduled for a release last July has completely disappeared from Kyosho’s planning.

 

Not much things to see in 1/43 scale either. JKB86 and a new Savanna RX-7.

At least there was the prototype of the 1/18 Lamborghini Veneno and the new Fiat 131 Abarth.

Everything else on the quite large diecast corner in the Kyosho booth came from other manufacturers like FrontiArt, Ertl or Premium ClassiXX.
