FIRST LOOK! Kyosho’s 1:64 Racing Ferrari Collection!

Feb 16, 2012 1 Comment by

1:64 is going to get just a bit hotter this summer thanks to this new lineup of 1:64 Ferrari  F1 racers from Kyosho, arriving soon in the form of pre-decorated kits.

Each kit contains approximately ten pre-painted and tampo-decorated pieces, and comes with an included screwdriver – everything snaps into place and final-fastens with the screws, and as we see from these advance factory images, the ease of assembly is matched by a super detailed display piece sure to please F1 fans and 1:64 collectors alike. The cars also come with a display base.

Why kits? It’s a long story that has to do with licensing and regional distribution of the Ferrari brand. Here’s the best news: unlike many of Kyosho’s 1:64 selections, this one’s got a sure pipeline into the US – DaBoxToys, an online retailer specializing in these hard-to-find models since 2003.

Check out the lineup card – pretty promising. We’ll have samples in hand soon, so stay tuned.

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
