For those of you that have been following my collecting of the Kyosho Optima series - it is finally done. The last car in the puzzle has taken me nearly 10 years to find. Thanks to all for emails and messages on eBay, I really appreciate all the extra 'ëyes' looking out for me.
The hardest to find was the Turbo Optima Mid SE. I missed one a couple of years ago on eBay - it went to a friend in Hong Kong.....
I wasnt going to miss this one. Unbeleivably it came from Peru! I have gotten most of my collection from private trading and Japan, very few of my cars have been purchased on eBay. I was nervous at first - but the seller was very honest and trustworthy.
The culmination of all these kits together in one place is really special for me. Interestingly I only just noticed that if you go by the kit number on the box, the Javelin was actually released AFTER the Optima Pro! And that the last kit in the series was the Optima Mid Custom Special.
Kyosho sure have some strange ways of doing releases - however they made an excellent product and I am proud to have them all.
I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed getting them all together again.
