Both F1s are Senna cars. The JPS Lotus 79 from 1985 and the Marlbro Honda/McLaren MP4/6 or MP4/7 from the '91 or '92. Very cool!

been going over the site...
my best guess is that he makes modifications (obviously) dunno if they sell them commercially but i'm inclined to think so in very limited quantities... they do make decals too... which i figure, they sell as well... any other guesses?

i think they make a prototype then make a mold of the prototype to produce the final product (as seen above)... i think they make them in resin but not sure... the blue box may be the molds that they're using...

good catch...

hmm... couldn't find anything either... i tried posting a comment... asking if i could use the pictures on the website... the page would not accept english text... then i did a google translation... used copy paste to post my comment... it accepted it, but unfortunately it wasn't readable when my post showed up since it showed symbols more than japanese characters...

anybody else try?

akura2
2010.06.07, 01:51 PM
I don't know why there is no email address... that's just crazy to me... he makes these wonderful bodies and parts, ans he wants to sell them, but there is no way to contact him?

crazy...

and the shops that carry the parts (body kits) don't carry the full bodies... it seems that the only place to get the bodies is that "shop" with the track

EGR Racing carries the bodykits and there is another shop called Dor Dor Hobby has them under the name "IMI"... but I can't find any info on the bodies themselves...

He keeps saying that he sels through ebay, but I don't even see any links to his stuff... even on ebay Japan

HELPPPP!

how can you show all your cool stuff at the biggest hobby show in japan, but have no info on how to get your products?

herman
2010.06.07, 10:53 PM
me thinks he puts them up for auction... (from the rough transrashon on googre)...
and auctions them off to a serect few... it must be an honor to be one of the serect few to offer bid must it not?...

it's just my theory through deduction though...
wish somebody else can help us out here...

Look forward for arrival to mailforwarder in Japan and then it will ship items to me.
Unfortunately dealer's service isn't cheap. And maybe I will trade one of kits.

Don't know may be somewhere was this info already, but I didn't see...
So... I found out that Garage Hiro online shop for overseas customers was opened.
Here it is: https://www garage-hiro-online-shop com/ (https://www garage-hiro-online shop com/)

https://image.jimcdn com/app/cms/image/transf/dimension=1920x400:format=jpg/path/s951085f1248d966b/image/i0b99e83f89e555e3/version/1463904533/image.jpg

p.s. Yes, I knew that some of Hiro's stuff sells "for years" via such online shops as rc.kyosho.com, rcmini-z.com, auctions.yahoo.co.jp, etc. but this one (as I mentioned earlier) is from Hiro directly and has huge stuff assortment.

and was delightfully surprised as i chanced upon some of hiro's creations in the shop...

some are quite body kits / parts are quite pricey.... almost as much as an autoscale... wish i got some though...
