Thanks for the info.
Actually I read from time to time the official mini-z blog but it mostly depicts the mini-z cup and this doesn't interests me Though this subject indeed is very interesting, the pics are sooooo small it's really a pity!

yeah, i wish we had the opportunity to interview a kyosho product developer about mini-z history, production, etc. i don't have those contacts or level of resources to reach those kinds of people though.

I don't understand why Kyosho publish a yearly catalog for diecast and nothing for autoscales??? They could easily publish a yearly catalog for mini-z as they did in 2005 with the small one they gave away with autoscales.
