Kyosho Reveals Beetle Re-Release at Tokyo Hobby Show

Kyosho has another re-release on the way, as these shots from the Tokyo hobby show (via hobbymedia.it) reveal. The original 1983 Beetle was based on the Scorpion, which makes it fitting that a Beetle re-release would follow the successful Scorpion re-release. Predictably, the car looks fantastic, and you can count on the improvements Kyosho made […]
