TSM En­ters the 1:64 World

Die Cast X - - SHOWROOM -

1:64 | $18

The col­lec­tor scene is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a re­nais­sance in 1:64 mod­els, and new brands are be­ing cre­ated to meet the de­mand. One such brand of palm-sized model is Mini GT, mark­ing the first foray into 1:64 scale mod­els by the mak­ers of TSM Model. Fol­low­ing the re­lease of FK8 Honda Civic Type R is the wide-bod­ied LB-Works Nis­san GT-R (R35), avail­able in light blue and matte grey. LB-Works, bet­ter known as Lib­erty Walk, is a Ja­pan-based firm that has made its name around the world with its way of re­shap­ing cars with elab­o­rate body kits, most no­to­ri­ously for their wide “over­fend­ers.” This sub­cul­ture in the tun­ing scene has es­tab­lished its rep­u­ta­tion, love it or hate it; Lib­erty Walk’s am­bi­tions are not wan­ing. This GT-R em­bod­ies the spirit of LB-Works, and it will be pro­duced in both left-hand drive and right-hand drive to cater to the Asian and Amer­i­can mar­kets. Know­ing TSM Model, these Mini GT mod­els won’t be light on the de­tails.— Xin Choo
