  1. No mention of the colour of engine sprue so I'd expect curbside. It would however have separate chromed parts for the window frame.
  2. Highlight Model Studio also makes photo etch ones in 2 styles, with or without holes. https://www.highlightmodelstudio.com/en/product/11872852 https://www.highlightmodelstudio.com/en/product/11872852
  3. Tamiya has posted product information. The window moldings and headlight cover frames will be separate chromed parts, and the wheel covers will be in 3 pieces similar to how it was done in the new Supra. https://www.tamiya.com/japan/products/24360/index.html
  4. Model shops in here are taking pre-orders for around US $42.
  5. Speaking of Volvo, they hinted an S40 on Facebook last year. There is also a Vauxhall Cavalier hinted but Opel and Vauxhall are no longer GM. The last car hinted was the Alfa 155. I am hoping the Peugeot license would lead to a 406 down the road. And maybe a Primera or Pulsar GTi-R for the Nissan license, if Hasegawa doesn't do it first.
  6. Surprised me that they haven't done the 190E Evo 2 yet. That thing has cult status as far as the Guia race is concerned.
  7. Orange Wheels. Chromed: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10402388 Plain: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10402384
  8. The Watanabes from the Skyline will work just fine, and they are the de facto wheels on most 240ZG. My guess is they would be metal stickers like they did with their classic car line before. The front and rear windshield trims would be tricky; in real life it is a chrome strip sandwiched between the rubber trim.
  9. The European fielded cars were the pre-facelift version and would need an entirely new body to change the side molding and rear license plate housing, I doubt Hasegawa would go that far. The post-facelift version as made by Hasegawa seemed to have raced in Spa in RHD config, and can be easily produced from the existing tooling.
  10. Really didn't see this coming. All new tool with a "realistically depicted engine" and hinged hood, plus plated metal parts for window frame and headlight covers. Featured release for early 2021. https://www.tamiya.com/japan/featuredreleases_early2021.html
  11. There are free SSL certs, which this site already uses. By all means use HTTPS, it is already here. It is probably ok to not encrypt what kinds of paints we use, or what our latest model purchase was, or photos of our models. But don't forget your password also get passed along to the site when you login in. Even if you only use it for this site (which you should), it would still be terrible if someone steals it and uses your ID to post something you normally wouldn't.
  12. Japanese modellers have posted the inside shot of the Hasegawa body on Facebook, the recess lines for scribbing out the targa top are there.
  13. I expect separate wheel nuts for ease of painting. Hasegawa has been doing this for most of their recent kits, even when it is not entirely necessary.
  14. Makes sense as this particular scheme of 1993 Taisan was never released before and Tsuchiya "Drift King" Keiichi drove it to victory. It also helps snag sales as people who cannot wait for the Calsonic version will get this first and get the Calsonic one afterwards anyway. If it is done the other way round a lot of people will stop at one. From Hasegawa's web site the kit will come with proper single wiper, trunk lid with the fuel filler holes opened as well as brake ducts, race suspension, aero mirrors and proper interior bits. http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/hc41/
  15. First saw it in Facebook, supposed to be an all new kit. I can't read Korean and all the words are embedded in the pics, it would be great if someone else can get more information out of it. http://www.academy.co.kr/1p/1p_plaview.asp?pView=PLA0000005&pCode=1985&pScale=PLA0000005
