Lamley Daily: Kyosho Nismo 400R

Kyosho's Nismo 400R is must-have for a multitude of reasons, and even in small scale it punches far above its weight class.

There has been a TON of Nissan GT-R released in 1/64. None of them can top Ignition Model’s offering.

Is there such a thing as overkill in the 1/64 world?  Probably. Some might argue the JDM craze we have seen hit almost every brand is overkill.  Not even close.  Maybe some ELEMENTS of the JDM craze, but in general Japanese cars are just filling the gaps that have always been there. Earlier this century, …

No matter what you think about the latest Honda/Acura NSX, Kyosho’s replica is pretty brilliant.

So what do you think of the new Acura NSX?  I seem to get mixed responses.  Some love it.  Others think it shouldn't share the name of Acura's 90's era gem.  I have even heard the Audi R8's ugly stepbrother. I don't know if I fall in any of those camps.  I don't see the …
