I'll be going there on Sunday. My 4th year going. Everything will have already been seen online by that time so I won't bother to post pics. It's a great show if you can ever make it.

2nd best, get a friend in Japan to walk around with a vidcam on his shoulder for you, in real time viewing! :D

Nice model with great weathering, however how can the front wheel and the engine cover be broken, yet the front wing and the undertray are not broken?

Had the new joint venture of Ebbro and Tamiya showed anything new?

That looks awesome, especially seeing all those 50% off models. Man I miss Japan, had I known about these when I loved there, I definitely would've attended

The picture was great. You got lucky you went. Hopefully I go there next show.

I was wondering what kind engine on FRS on left side:

Cheers guys! I'm glad you like the pictures.
The 50% off sale was very tempting... you have no idea how hard it was not to buy anything.... :uhoh:
I don't have enough time for modeling and I want to finish those kits I already have :rolleyes:

great photos from the show Tom!

the Ford GT engine in a BRZ is unique, but I guess almost any engine swap works when in scale! ;) :)

Even easier when the engine is 1:25 going into a 1:24 body.
Saying that, I remember someone saying that the Polar Lights Ford GT (is there another kit that I missed?) is closer to 1:24 than actual 1:25.

The Jada Ford GT is 1/24. The Polar Light one is considerably smaller.

I think the BRZ/FRS actually has a GT500 5.4L engine in it
