Hi to all:

I've just seen this!

I haven't seen any personally but from what I've been told, their AE86 and the new FC kits are very good (although the FC under body is not correct!!)! I've been told (and I repeat that I haven't seen the kits personally, so I'm not sure of this information) that these kits are quite an improvement over Fujimi's offerings.

For the time being Aoshima has released/announced this 3 kits but I can bet tat some more will follow. I'll try to get my hands on the AE86 and the FC!

Curious... amazing they made a separate detailed construction for the engine. Unlike most model cars where the engine sits inside the engine bay... only the top can be seen... This new engine detailing can be seen FROM TOP TO BOTTOM!!! Its real cool... imagine you can display the engine separately if you want... or you can display the car with it, the hood open, make your own engine hoist, and then hook the engine there... cool!!! laugh.gif For those of you who bought the specific kit hope you can post some "fnished products" pics here... I love the suspension bits too!!!
