Kyosho Mercedes Benz 190E 1/20th mini stocker.

When working for Hobby City in the late 1980's i built this particular car for display in the shop. Would you believe after all these years the car turned up again and i was able to add it to the collection. It was in great condition and just needed a good old clean. Oops look at the steering rods c...

Kyosho Turbo Scorpion and Tomahawk

A couple of cars we have been wanting for the collection for some time now when the opportunity came up recently to get them. The Tomahawk is an original one that was a bit tired and needed a full restoration while the Turbo Scorpion was a reproduction kit but the wheels where 2.2 inch in those kits...

Kyosho Optima Celebration Gold Edition

Got hold of an Optima a while back that needed a good old clean and tidy up. When Kyosho sales of the Optima reached 100,000 the decided to bring out a limited production run of a Gold edition kit using gold parts from the Option House range and fitting the low profile chrome wheels and OT-66 tyres ...

Kyosho Ultima and Marui Ninja

Two restorations i have just finished leading up to Xmas.
The Ultima was in good condition and just needed a good cleanup,new body and decals.
The Ninja required a bit more work including new body and decals.
The tyres are a bit perished but will have to do as they are somewhat difficult to find.

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...

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.
