This coming soon from Aoshima/Beemax I presume..?? The gravel version is already on it's way to me from HLJ as I speak, however the tarmac version will also be a 'must have' purchase for me. One can only hope that this partnership between Aoshima/Beemax continues and they keep producing some of the 'older' rally cars. If they are reading this or anyone has contact with them, I'd love an accurate Lancia Delta S4 in 1/24th plastic. I'm sure it would be a good seller :smile:

Good news !
If Beemax is on Toyota maybe they'll go on with the ST205.

That would be great..!! Forgot that one Phil. I built the S27 trans-kit a long time ago (Tamiya base kit) but was never quite happy with it. I would love an accurate ST205 kit in plastic :)

The fuel tank on the pic is totally wrong.

If they make this kind of mistake on a 1991 rallye car imagine on a 80´s car...:naughty:

Same for me, I have two Studio27 1994/95 transkits for the ST205 version and also a Studio27 Transkit for 91 MC ST165 version. :iceslolan
I will for sure buy the complete plastic model if they are fine. The key part of the model would be the rims IMHO as Studio27 did right in his transkit whereas Hasegawa (with the ST185) was completely wrong !! :sly: :eek7:
I'm a bit fed-up to have to buy kits or transkits just to get correct wheels to complete models !! So I hope this time everything will be correct, even if this time I may have some advance as I already have the transkits and eventual spare parts ! :runaround: :cwm27: :lol:

I agree Phil. Wouldn't it be nice if a company would release all the different wheels and tyres we require as separate items for purchase. It sure would save lots of problems. I wish there was a transkit for the Hasegawa Mitsubishi Lancers (rally) to give the correct size wheels and tyres and also lower the suspension as well. Renaissance did it with the Subaru Legacy and Impreza, but never with any of the other Hasegawa kits. Wish they would do a few more different ones..

I´m talking about the 91 Monte Carlo Version that they will release not the 89 Austrália already released.

Another mistake is the seats. They look like the child seats.

One more mistake is the body size. Tamiya's body looks much closer to the original.
Original car: length 4365 mm , 1 :24 - 181.8 mm , Tamiya -181мм , Aoshima- 178 мм .
width 1710 mm , 1:24 - 71.2 mm, Tamiya - 72 мм , Aoshima - 74 мм

Hi Steve....

Just noticed your post -An easy solution (and probably cheaper than a transkit would be) is to use the Tamiya Evo 5 / 6 chassis under the Hasegawa body...

There's a bit of mucking around with to fit the Hasegawa dash, and the cage might need revising, but the Tamiya chassis has nice big wheel arches to take their typically oversized rims, and the 'stance' is much better.... The chassis just needs some trimming around the extremities to allow the Hasegawa body to fit over it... Use the 5 for tarmac or the 6 for gravel..... And as a bonus the 6 includes the tarmac rims and suspension parts from the 5 too

This also addresses the 'skinny' look that the Hasegawa Evo's all seem to have....

The master 'Ken' has used the same process here:

The seats have been mentioned previously in a facebook post by Beemax - They will be addressed in this version apparently....

I have the Australian version which I'm building as Dai Llewellin's RAC Securicor car, but I'll be waiting for the Monte Carlo one now, as all the other ST165's I want to do are tarmac cars.

Does anybody know if the Monte Carlo version will be released? It is a quite long time from the last announcement and there are no new informations about progress.

I wonder too. I am not very inclined to buy 5 gravel versions with integrated front lamps and as many conversion TK's to represent tarmac cars with opened lamps...

They have answer someone on Facebook yesterday that the target release date is around September.

I guess their priority right now is on the WTCC Chevy Cruze.
