Kyosho’s 1:18 Rolls Royce is getting some company in 1:43, thanks to this pair of extended wheelbase variants. First up is the 1:43 Rolls Royce Ghost, in “extended wheelbase” form, wearing a color called “Darkest Tungsten” – a fitting scheme for this more sporting Rolls. We like the added pieces all over the car – done in photo-etch and hard plated plastic, and impeccably put onto the casting.
The second car is the more formal – and luxurious – Rolls Royce Phantom, seen here in “English White”. Again – clean, crisp, and great looking, with solid proportions and a believable stance.
Both models will come in upscale packaging, and will have high parts counts; Wayne Moyer had a sample of the first car in hand for the Spring 2013 issue of DCX, and liked the model just fine. We’d have to agree – these are great looking little barges with full interior detailing and very well done chassis castings, and Kyosho’s usual fine quality build. Roll on, fellas, roll on.
