Just a heads up that Aoshime Grachan (“Grand Champions”) BEST comes out this week, and it is available to order now at Japan Booster:
If you are not familiar with the Aoshima Grachan series, you really should be. Aoshima is well known for their model sets, but they do dabble in 1:64. We have covered Aoshima before, and explained the purely Japanese style of the castings.
Each set comes with two versions of six castings, with the possibility of a chase car being mixed in. And if you don’t have any Aoshime, then this is definitely the set to get. It is exactly what it says it is, a “Best of” of past castings in new colors. Hakosuka & Kenmeri Skylines, Mazda RX3, Laurel, a 240Z, and the model I am most excited about, the Liftback Celica.
Check them out, and be sure to order a set. Aoshima sets are limited, and tend to vanish fast. This is a great way to get some of the more popular castings from the past…
