Aoshima Seibu Keistatsu Machine RS-1 1/43 diecast

One of my favorite postings at Japanese Nostalgic Car blog is the Friday Video. Most of the time they feature the old Japanese police cop series, from which Seibu Keistatsu the most frequently returning series is.

I found pictures of this perfect Aoshima 1/43 diecast of the Seibu Keistatsu Machine RS-1 (????RS1??) on a Japanese blog:

All (fog)lights in the front valance are correct!

And I love the tiny details: a rear wiper on the rear window!

This model is so detailed, even the stickers on the side have very very tiny decal saying 4 valve DOHC next to the bigger RS-Turbo letters! And even the window mouldings are silver! ??????

And of course the inside of the car is just as detailed as the outside! The big computer console is just like in the series! ?(ยด??)?

Compare the pictures above to this video footage of the RS-1, RS-2 and RS-3:

It may not be as detailed as the perfect AE86 by AutoArt, but think of it this way: the AutoArt AE86 is 1/18 and this is a 1/43 diecast! So this diecast is more than twice as small and the total length is about 10 centimeters! Then think of all those tiny little details on it! Now that is small!

According to the blog this new detailed diecast is available since April 2009! Now all I need is someone outside Japan selling this diecast! ?(????)
