Kyosho Javelin.

Restored this car a few months back. The car was in quite good condition just needing some elbow grease after a full strip down to cleanup. Perhaps the worst part was the frame body that had been painted red but the Tamiya paint stripper did the job and now its nice and orange again. We got some rep...

Kyosho Diecast RC cars

Got these two diecast RC cars for my birthday-just love them the detail is fantastic.
I have put a photo of them with the Hirobo Alien Mid4 which now has its MCI Racing decals on to give you an idea of their size.
They were released in 2006 by Kyosho and it seems they only did these two.

Kyosho Lazer ZX-R

This project has taken 2+ years to complete as it was missing many parts but finally gathered them all in and with the arrival of the TBG body and the MCI Racing decals she can now join the collection. The shocks are the Ultimate shocks that were fitted to the Lazer ZX-RR as i could not find the W-5...

Re: Ultima Pro

No just the front tyre problem which may never be solved.

Kyosho Rocky 4wd

I rather like the old Rocky with its bright colour scheme.
This somewhat under rated car got a lot of people into the sport of rc racing.
Glad to add it to the collection.

Ultima Pro

This project has been dragging on for some time trying to find parts but is now finished.
The only problem i still have is the front tyres which are not correct should be W-5074 pins but are difficult to find and very expensive when they do turn up.

Optima Mid Custom Special

I have never been sure if i liked the body on this version of the Mid but now finally having done one i rather like it. It looks better in the flesh than in the photos. Seems impossible the find the normal yellow versions of MA-17 rears and OT-21 fronts and very expensive when they do turn up. I had...

Kyosho Triumph

Being wanting one of these for a while now and finally one came my way though the condition was a little sad. I could see it had potential and a lot of hard work and some help with some parts i needed it all came together nicely. We will get the usual TBG body and MCI decals to finish it off. Though...

Hirobo Alien Mid4

Been hoping to find one of these for a while now. Can't afford the $2000 plus they seem to be asking for NIB examples. When i got the car it was a little sad and needed a lot of TLC. After i cleaned away the dirt and grime of many years out popped a rather mint car. These cars where released in 1986...
