The photo also don't show how small the tires are, they're like the size of a nickel, but look at that sidewall detail...Aoshima is magical...or a certain American company is cheap and lazy...

I was hoping you guys would post pictures of these kits. I'm fascinated by such subjects. 

 

Thanks.

Look like cool little kits and take up way less room in the display case. : )

As they said about the 1:1's on Japanese roads!  :)

 

Nice to see what these kits encompass

These kits are amazing. They are so amazingly well engineered! Hope Aoshima keeps up this excellent quality in all the future releases.

Those are really cool.

 

Jonathan - aren't you missing a sprue or two?  Where's the drivetrain?  It looks like (Hobby Search-wise) the trucks are all wheel drive and include the lower engine detail?  

 

Thanks for posting up pictures.
