This is the McLaren 675LT in 1:18 from Kyosho’s Ousia line. It’s not resin, but a sealed diecast model. What does that mean exactly? Kyosho decided to compromise with the diehard diecast enthusiasts who are resisting the resin take-over. High levels of detail, fit, and finish that you’d expect from Kyosho but none of…

We had very special visit this week from the great, crazy people of the Pub2Pub Expedition, driving their TVR Chimaera from Svalbard, Norway to Ushuaia, Argentina. An odd drive, right?
