Aoshima....Same wheels....new color.....

Hobby World.....has pre-orders for the 19" Volk TE-37 in white, Volk CE 28N in silver and Racing Hart Type-CR in Gunmetal facing.

Also for the Nostalgia fans (like myself) they have pre-order for a Ken & Mary Skyline and Corolla. More deep dish rims, more yummy stretchwalls. CLICKY

The rims are scheduled to release in March.

Re: Aoshima....Same wheels....new color.....

Why on earth won't they make those stretchwalls available seperately?

My question is why didn't they offer the TE-37 in gunmetal? I'd prefer that over white.

Also Aoshima always released wheels in 4's. Why only 3 this time?

Good question on both accounts. Gunmetal over white, nothing we all couldn't fix but I hear ya.

The 4th release. Maybe the NT-03M was a real let down for them? I would've been partial to a color change in the NT-03M's myself.

Ok, cool - thought there was something wrong with me, my eyesight or my browser, lol.

So these look like the old school aoshima kits but what, more lowering and stretchwall tyres? I might buy one.
Not the laurel though, I'm not touching one of those again!

I bought 2 Celica LB kits. IMO, it's the best Nostalgia kit. Staggered Techno Sakura's with stretchwalls as well. Awesome.

Cool! I bought the 2 door C110 skyline GT (known in Australia, UK etc as a "Datsun 240K" ), It comes with staggered Hayashi's from the looks, and I assume the stretchwalls are in all the chiki chiki kits? http://hobbyworld.aoshima-bk.co.jp/s...code=ABK135351

It was a pretty close call between the skyline and the Cedric 330 (which has Starshark wheels from the looks), but the skyline won.
Cedric (AKA Datsun 260C) : http://hobbyworld.aoshima-bk.co.jp/s...code=ABK135368

I'd love one of the C10 sedan's with the staggered Longchamp's and stretchwalls.

With any luck, they'll keep making this series of cars - and hopefully expand it/the wheel range. Some super wide, staggered RS-watanabe's with stretchwalls would be 0wnage....

I also preordered a Fujimi "Garage and Tools" (?) "Nostalgic Racer Tuning Parts" set from hlj, but to be honest I haven't the first clue what's coming in that! http://www.hlj.com/product/FUJ11114
