These two micro-trucks were built 'box-stock' from two different 1/24 Fujimi kits......same vehicle but different box-art and with a couple of different bed and spare tire options.
The 1/1 Daihatsu MidgetII vehicles were manufactured between 1996 and 2001 but evidently still have a cult following in Japan and
since my brother and I have a passion for 1/1 microcars, building these kits was a 'Must Do'.
Paint is custom mixed automotive basecoat/clearcoat to match a photo that I have of a 1/1. Although the pics show a bluish color, the models are actually sort of a turquoise but, for some reason, my camera doesn't pick up the added green.

Different alright and wonderful. I'm assuming you did one and your brother the other, so the talent runs in the family.

To quote Tom McCahill, "so cute, you don't know whether to pinch its cheek or swat it."

It is a cute little truck, that's for sure.

There are a few places that import them- there are a couple of these (and other microtrucks similar to these) in my area used on farms.

Great job on these, Cliff!
