AUTOart, a very well-known name in the die-cast models community, is bringing the extremely popular PROJECT.D AE86 to outside of Japan. Yes, that means us overseas Initial D fans can finally get our hands on this beautiful work of art.

For many years, the AUTOart 1:18 Scale Toyota AE86 was made only available in Japan and few selected South East Asian countries. Those of us who are stateside weren't so lucky and had to pay big bucks to get them from auction sites like eBay and Yahoo! Auction.

No more of that nonsense! AUTOart is bringing the tuned-up version of the AE86 to North America this coming January. For a price of $170 USD, it is such a bargain when you consider the details they put into this model. If you have a nice digital camera, you can literally take hi-res photos and fool your friends into thinking you own a real AE86 from Initial D.

Without further ado, check out the pre-order link below if you are interested in getting one. They also have the largest selection of 1:18 die-cast models, be sure to check out their showroom: http://autoartmodels.com/product.web.Showroom.do

TOYOTA SPRINTER TRUENO (AE86) INITIAL D | http://autoartmodels.com/web/product/en/2151

I'unno, a 1:18 model could take up so much space as it is.
1:12? Goodbye desk (or anything, really) space.

1:18 is pretty big already. @.@ For Trueno, that's 23.3 cm (9.2 inches) If we go 1:12, then it's going to be 35 cm (13.8 inches) That's gigantic!!!

1:12 is the same scale as figmas. Thus, a 1:12 Trueno would be driveable by my massive collection of Anime figures. wink2.gif

For $170, it better be gigantic.

I was going to say something like that instead when I responded to Perry, but I figured it'd be best to take the innuendo and run with it.
