After a long time I finally got a Junior Z. I love the design of this Zagato coupé. :)

Thanks David, I think the Kyosho 1:64 Alfa issues are really well made. The cost is comparable to the partwork 1:43. :)

I think the rims are the best part of the model, great detail for its scale.

That looks good Johan! Kyosho really know their cars but I wish the tires were not so big other than that it is a stunning looking car.

Tidy. Only the glass gives away the scale

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

That's a beautiful car and an excellent model, more so given its tiny scale.

I like it when 1:64's look like they are supposed to.
This one really does.

Thanks Paul, stunning indeed - and those tires are big, but they also were on the original car as well, not that big though. :)

Thanks Andy, I have never thought of it that way but I guess that the glass is one of the most revealing details in that respect. :)

Thanks Tom, I agree. I am loving what Kyosho are doing in this scale right now. :)

Thanks Jeff, agreed - this has a much more scale model presence rather than toy car feel to it. I am a big fan of the toy cars as well though. :)

Fiat 500 C (Hot Wheels, 1:64)

ImageImage

This is probably one of the coolest cars in my collection... :D :ugeek:

Image

.... I mean... just look at it... :shock:

I started googling about this kind of car, since this is obviously not a Fiat 500 "Topolino" in original appearance - and I was very intrigued to find a lot of cars with this type of look. Mainly Hot Rods and dragracing cars.

Sorry for digging so far back through this thread the car with Hillbillies on it was built by My Grandads team and raced for many years over here in the UK, Really cool, have really enjoyed your cars like the CM lambos and Kyosho alfas the most

A long time since I updated this thread (or anything at all for that matter) but here is a small (!) addition to my collection of tiny italian cars.

Image

Alfa Romeo SZ (Kyosho, 1:100)

Image

Image

Image


For the size I think it looks pretty good, it is really tiny - here compared with a 1:24

Image



And now I want one in 1:64 as well. The SZ is one of my favorite cars of all time.

A very distinctive 1:1 and an excellent recreation in such a small scale.

Thanks Tom, I agree. No one would call it pretty I guess - but it is one of those designs that you either love or hate. I love it. :)

While on the subject, here is more of the Alfa Zagato - but here as a convertible and i 1:64 scale

Image

Alfa Romeo RZ (Kyosho, 1:64)

Image

Image

I think Kyosho made a fine job on this one. Very pleased with it. :)

Image

Image

And I want one in 1:1 too.... :ugeek: :D ;)
