Can't make out most of the ji, but the katakana on the left star says "oo rea" = super rare. Dunno what character it is above the 10 on the right star. And the description says "_________ paint model"

No help, I know. :) Any higher rez of that one? I'll get out my Kanji books from college.

exit poll?


Katakana part of the sign in top pic says "charity auction." I'm betting the bidding starts at 3,000 yen. Bottom pic sign says "miniature model charity auction." Maybe those are bid boxes?

And the sign on the right of the picture says: "this is the exit, please go to the entrance." :)

Great pics, herman. Wish, wish, wish I could be there!

Is that a white Murch Autoscale I'm seeing in there? Is there a re-release in the works? I see it was also part of an exit poll too.

Great pics! Thanks for the link Herman!

It would b nice to have a good contact in Japan, so that we could have a chance to buy these limited edition Mini-Zs that they only make available in Japan. By the time we hear about these limited edition cars, they are already sold out.

Nah, EP on-road guy but he's now more of a Kyosho spokesman

there is more than one thread here that documented limited edition home market only autoscales, of which this is one of them. i think soulstice may even have this one.

also deduced that most of his cars take on this particular paint scheme...

Seems like all ages like this sport if that what it is. Are there many events like this were all the family can attend?

i just heard from kyosho someone was appointed to paint a few bodies the same so they are possibly the rarest out there;)

arch2b
2010.04.16, 12:18 PM
there is a series of hand painted bodies that were released. there are pictures of all floating around here. i don't know that anyone ever really officially documented them and collected images unfortunately. i was told once there are still extremely limited editions that have been released that simply never made internet news thus pictures taken or published. unfortunately we do not have a local source to depend on for this stuff. just members that come and go and travel :) bithed used to scoop for us but he's dropped out of mini-z long ago.

kyoshosan

Kyosho should create a Mini-Z Catalog with all models (including colors and schemes variations) they have produced so far. That would be a nice collectors item :-)
We should all send them an email asking so :-)
