Yep, have to say they look good indeed. And as for the size of the Toyota, it looks correct, so for around 8 bucks I would be all over that.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Here is my overseas purchase and they were delivered to me just a few hours ago.
I think the size of the TS050 is correct when the IXO porsche 919 is place alongside with it. There are no paint concern or critical misalignment of decal as far as i can see on both cars. Quality is good in my opinion especially for the Issue 1 which costs only 799 yen. I hope the TS050 is the lemans winner in 2018 instead of 2017 car. What do you think? :P

Thanks Wilson, I thin there are many of us interested to know more about these cars.

Here's my Spark 2017 Toyota TS 050 for comparison.

The main difference seems to be the wheels, but for the price difference I think that's easily justified.

One more important thing is that the models from the magazine are made of diecast but not resin. The chassis and wings are plastic.

But where are you going to get one from for 8 bucks ?

Dont be fooled with the introductory price for Issue 1 , as like all partworks,at least in the UK.... they will get more expensive and by the Issue 3 they will be full price, and that will only be for subscribers .
Newsagents/ Magazine sellers here wont stock a PW magazine past issue 3 or 4 and they then have to be ordered or a subscription taken out .
Being that these are a Japanese partworks (for now at least) unless you live in Japan, youve probably got no chance of getting them unless you resort to Ebay and pay Ebay prices which ive seen as high as 45 - 50 bucks , and at that price surely it makes sense to pay a bit more to have the proper Spark model :?

It may be the same retail price as that sold in japan as long as there is an official retailer for the magazine ? Just like the f1 auto collection sold in italy for example?
