Chef told us in the course of our cooperation that supercars are a hot topic in the shop and the blog. And as we always do what boss says, today we bring a true supercar, the Toyota Hiace H200. If now one of you get the idea should be noted that this is not a supercar, then we have to say: Yes, it's true. But after all, the Hiace is the most stolen car in Japan, which indeed is a rather remarkable fact. In Germany this hit list is led by the BMW X5; an SUV, no vans. But that is so sought after that can be put into operation since 2012 replaced in production only via fingerprint sensor in Japan. Kyosho any case brought about the sub-brand Samurai a large model car 1:18 scale, the Toyota Hiace simulates perfectly.
This Kyosho have stepped into the material resine plastic in itself because the models for Hiace into black and white colors are made of that same polyurethane resin and therefore offer no opening doors and hoods. But only to be expected as Kyosho is the build quality top notch; the finish of the body lines, the joints and the attachments is better not to do. A look inside the passenger knows how to impress: the dashboard and side panels as well as the seats meet the needs that challenge the collectors commonly to Kyosho. The label Samurai heads up the name Japan Car Premium Quality Resin Model, which is interpreted as meaning that the model car dedicated exclusively in Japan available models.
