Hotworks - Trueno AE86 (1983 version)















Got this 1/24 die-cast model car at CSC flea market last Sunday. As I am a super fan of Japanese Anime "Initial D", I bought it without hesitation. The model car comes with additional spare parts which can be used to modify the normal version of Trueno into Initial D version. I think the fans sure know who is the young driver for AE86 in one of the most successful Japanese Comics till today. You may view the modified version here and original red colour version here.

This Trueno 86 is super cool with the accessories. I love watching Initial D especially the Stage One. Cool nite race with para para music keeping you on the move.

Ya Dennis, agree with you especially when Takumi performed his drifting skills in the dark night..
