Mark43 2015

Postby Rat » Sat Dec 27, 2014 3:06 pm

So, what do we know about this newcomer to the resin world? Did they buy some of their molds from HPI? The models look really nice and they are in the more realistic mid to high $60's range.

Atractive price point... :)

Looking at them very closely i'd be surprised if they weren't off the same molds or had their molds created by the same model maker

but they are not HPIs/Ignitions or the like re-packaged. They don't have the same crispness to them nor fine detail and finish.

Interesting thoug - anyone found a link to a website?

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I just do not get why new brands on the scene copy the same models other brands have already released, same colours too.

A custom Supra with carbon hood is fine but what about some nicer rims?

The 240ZG looks like a more detailed version of my Ebbro.

Yes, I've been thinking that too.

I already have most of the models shown above from Ebbro and Kyosho and wouldn't consider getting these as well.

However, I did buy the Mark43 NA Mazda MX5s in red, white and green because I owned the real car in all three colours and wanted models of uniform quality to replace my Century, Ebbro and 1/24 Tamiya.

Yet surely there would be more sales for fresh subjects like a Mazda RX4 or early Mitsubishi Starion than for yet another Honda NSX or R34 GTR?

I do like the old Fairlady, but there is probably a great alternative for this one. Good reminder that I'd like one in my collection though.

The Soarer models looks wonderful!

I've followed the 1:1 in recent months as a few of them have been brought into the US including the version with the folding metal roof! These were sort of like a cross between a Supra and what we got in the early Lexus cars? Very appealing!

It's very easy to see where the styling influences came from! Interesting subject for collectors of early Japanese motors.
