News : 1/64 at the Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

More news than last year at the Shizuoka Hobby Show ! Here is a recap of the 1/64 thanks to AmiAmi News and Hobby Search.

Tomytec showed off their RX-7 FD3S, a retooling of the Subaru 360 as well as a few prototypes for upcoming models.


Infini RX-7 RZ / Mazda RX-7 RS-R / Subaru 360 / Subaru 360 Convertible


Nissan Prince Royal / Prince Gloria / Toyota Mark II Hard top (X81) / Nissan Cedric/Gloria (Y32)

Ignition Model had quite an impressive display and their Pandem 86 V3 just looks fantastic !

Ebbro is trying a comeback to the 1/64 scale, unfortunately without much originality with the same Honda NSX that Kyosho did pretty well last year and the Civic Type R that literally everyone is doing.

The new 1/64 models from Inno made their first public appearance. More Civics with the EF3 Mugen Motul and the EG9 Jaccs.

MiniGT brought their big display at the show with all their prototypes and we get a closer look at their Porsche models.


LB Works 997 / 911 Turbo GT2 RS

News : All Japan Model Show 2017

All the Japanese minicar and model kit makers are showing off their newest items at the All Japan Model Show this weekend. Unfortunately for us only Tomytec brought 1/64 scale cars.

All pictures are from AmiAmi News.

The Mazda 787B is back with the 1991 LeMans #18 livery.

Big news for Civic fans with the production samples of the EK9 on display ! Beautiful stuff from Tomytec once again.

You like 1/64 trucks? Hino HH341 tractor unit, Hino Ranger KL545 and Nippon Fruehauf FPR239 wing roof trailer are coming.

And another Datsun Bluebird SSS Safari.

To finish the Tomica Limited Vintage tour, a quick look at the Nissan Gloria Y31 Gran Turismo prototype.

And that’s it. Only a handful of 1/64 cars at one of the biggest japanese model and hobby show. Aoshima didn’t bother to display their coming GranChan collection, F-Toys had no cars, Kyosho had many cars at every scale imaginable except for the 1/64 and Oversteer was not even there. What’s happening?

Make sure to check out the amazing reports by AmiAmi News for bigger scales cars, robots, military and everything else !

Gallery : Tomytec 1/64 September 2016 releases

The Lancia Delta is finaly here and as you can see this is one of the best miniature Tomytec ever made. Even if you already own the Kyosho or the CM’s versions, you can’t miss that gem by Tomytec, it surpasses them in every possible way. This amazing release almost overshadows the other cars for September that are quite well done as well. The police version of the President is impressive and the civilian version of the Skyline is spot on. We also get new colors for the Mazda Luce Legato initially released back in 2009.
