News : Kyosho 1/64 GT-R new toolings?

Nissan updated their 2017/2018 official goods catalog with three new GT-R items from Kyosho: 1/64 scale BNR32, BCNR33 and BNR34.

If the promotional pictures are not deceiving it seems like the cars are from brand new toolings. The front grills in particular are much more detailed than the previous models from the GT-R Neo collection and Kyosho Original releases.

The details on the bodies appear to be sharper than before however the wheels just look off, especially on the R34. Too big and too thick. Let’s hope that this is a prototype shown and that the final product will have better looking wheels.

The three new models will be on sale in Japan exclusively through selected Nissan dealers sometime in November.

Update : the cars seems to be retoolings of the Beads editions from 15 years ago. The wheels are not similar though.
