so I guess that it's over for these from Kyosho??? if so rats... I was so wanting a Lewis Hamilton and maybe a new Alonso... man the new 2007 cars would look awesome as mini z's! oh well, looks like I will pick up a few 2005's and run those... rats...

Where did you hear that it was "over"?

There was a break in production for a while, but then they got back into it with the '05 cars that just came out last fall, and are the current production.

so the 2005 cars are all we are geting this year??? that's crazy, I would of hoped they would at least offer stickers/bodys to at least upgrade to the current racers... I had read some articles about no more F1's for Kyosho, but could be wrong... I will pick up one each of the 2005 mclaren and ferrari for now, and either custom them myself, or wait for the new bodies... I am sure they will come out... eventually anyway... :mad:

f1's have alway sbeen slow to come out. unless tim has mentioned something i would have to assume the answer would be no new team cars. or unless you've seen images from overseas....

they do have unpainted bodies which they never had before so that should help

I wouldn't call it crazy– I'm sure it takes them a long time to obtain the proper licenses and put a new body into production. The JGTC cars all come out a year late too (and the Nascars for that matter).

I read in a magazine that it can take Kyosho over a year to produce a die-cast car (license, manufacturer's approval, etc), so probably similar with mini z.

I hear ya though– it'd be nice to have last year's grid to select from.

so where can you find unpainted bodies??? also, I am sure I am at least 2 years away from a hamilton body... I guess I can attempt one myself...:) now just to get vodafone logs etc made... any ideas where I can get stickers for these made up? I can always use the mp-20 as a start for this years :eek:
thanks!!!

Those are truely amazing Herman. I'd like to pick up a white F1 and have a crack at it.

I only have one guy I can race F1 with. My son has recently expressed interest and he's starting to get good enought. I wish there were more teams to choose from.

The proportions of the side wings are a bit exaggerated on the mini-z, it looks a lot better in real life. The Toyota with the wings and spoilers all over the place on the other hand... :D

HI,

BMW Sauber bodies haven't been produced. Kyosho currently only make the Ferrari and Mclaren, the latest of which are the 2005 season.
