I am just aware that Mazda Cosmo is now available on Model Space UK!

I have been following this kit for a while from the Deagostini Japan site. IMHO, the engine bay construction of this kit is exceptionally intricate - definitely one of the best among all 1/8 car kits. I speculate that such a sophisticated kit has to be designed by Japan's OEM designer who truly loves auto-modelling - instead of someone else like IXO (their design is good but only deliver just enough details). For example, I am quite sure that the model kit of 1/8 scale Mclaren MP4/4 is designed as an OEM project by Model Factory Hiro which whom is arguably the best 1/24, 1/20, and 1/12 scale racing cars model manufacturer.

Cosmo is the only kit that I'll seriously consider to subscript instead of waiting for the availability of full kit.

The full official build video link here: https://deagostini.jp/co...ity/maz_bbs/support.php

I am just trying to share my excitement.

Cheers

Awesome! I thought about collecting all the issues on ebay a while back, but I was worried I’d end up with an incomplete collection. I would definitely subscribe to a full US release though. I too much prefer the higher quality kits.

The more detail, the more accuracy, and the more tiny pieces, the better!

I didn’t see United States in the Country dropdown when I went to the order screen, unfortunately.

Fingers crossed it makes it across the big pond to you at some stage, but I personally don`t know if a US release is anticipated.Blink
