When Hiro released their long tail 917s the kit instructions included a template of the chassis so that builders could ensure that the multiple pieces of white metal framing were assembled correctly. Here we have the parts but not the drawing, but with care and using the floorpan to locate the lower level things should work out well. There’s plenty more white metal for the engine and suspension parts, the body is thinly cast in resin and there is semi-opaque yellow resin to replicate the transparent fibreglass used on the rear of the car for inner wheel arches, engine cooling ducts etc. Two decal options are offered, with either car #20 or 21 from Le Mans.

High detail, multi-media kits for the more experienced builder. Also a selected range of excellent accessory parts for use with resin and plastic kits. Always pushing the latest technology.
In larger scales (1:12, 1:20 & 1:24) bodywork typically in extremely crisp resin with the mechanical parts usually in white metal and plenty of etch and machined metal also included. 1:43 kits made with similar level of detail and precision as the larger offerings, but here the majority of parts are white metal, although in some cases we also see 3D printed resin chassis frames! Also an excellent range of photo reference magazines for a wide range of subjects. Made in Japan.
