Iconic Japanese Transportation in RC

Felt like every time I looked out into the fields while on a train in Japan, there was one of these parked on side of the road.  On my last trip to Japan, I was looking for a model of this aside from the Kato or Tomytec model and couldn't find one.  I searched up and down the isle of the hobby shops at Akihabara and couldn't fine a single model.  I finally asked Nariichi to look for me and he found a 1/24 scale model kit and it was a modern Subaru version and had it built.  I'm done building plastic model kits, haha. I've recently been more involved in RC cars and then this came along.  Check it out, I've already pre-ordered mine.

My WPL D12 Kei Truck has arrived and it's really cool and all the rage right now.  Oh man, I love it.  Nicely detailed body with front independent suspension and rear leaf springs and it's rear wheel drive.  Already seeing different modifications of the truck.  Gonna keep mine stock and it'll mainly be a shelf queen and will be driven out in front of the house every so often.  Now I have a 1/160, 1/24 and 1/10 scale model of the Kei Truck.
