Color: Red / White
Brand: Make Up Co., Ltd. / Eidolon
Part Number: VM222A
Release Date*: Released
It is a model that faithfully reproduces the LMGT1 class racing car "Toyota TS020 "Toyota Motorsport" Le Mans 24 Hours 1998" that participated in the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours.
This time, at the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours, it will be a model that reproduces No, 27, which finished 9th.
The prototype is designed based on the data collected by performing a 3D scan of the actual vehicle. Intricate shapes such as intakes are difficult to release from the mold during molding, and this is the best way to reproduce the exact depth and shape of the carving.
The first to be released is the 1998 Le Mans vehicle, but the splash pattern graphics will be expressed in decals.
In our case, after pasting the decal, the default is to apply a clear coating on top of it and then polish the surface to a mirror finish, but we have taken into consideration that the craftsmen who are actually in charge of manufacturing can easily finish it beautifully. and design. This is the part that we are most good at, as we do everything in-house, from model car design to manufacturing.
The body is made of resin, but white metal parts are used to reproduce parts that are prone to distortion over time, such as the thin wings. Wheels are set by replacing brass cutting prototypes with white metal casting parts.
We are planning to develop various variations of the TS020 model in the future, but it would be nice to collect it together with the TS010 and TS050, which have already been released by us, and look back on the history of Toyota's 24 Hours of Le Mans. Is it not?

About Resin Models:
Although higher in price, resin models offer an extreme amount of detail and precision. The finish is near flawless in presentation, they are limited in production, they offer a ton of photo-etch details and some of the tiniest features are shown. Resin models are especially great when it comes to makes, models and aftermarket styles that we often do not see when it comes to our favorite cars. These are offered in every model car scale and great for the collector minded people that want something unique from every angle.
