Anybody know the story on this one?
That one stared life with now-defunct Nitto Kagaku. Kit has a faux engine insert with incorrect intake runners. ESCI bought the molds for Nitto's 1/24 kits when Nitto went belly up, and when ERTL bought ESCI, some of the ex-Nitto kits found their way into AMT boxes..
Not a bad kit, but typical mid-70s Japanese production. Fujimi's is much better.
