Churning the rumor mill here, but looks like there maybe a soon to be released kit from Tamiya in the 1/24 Race Car category.
Breaking news! Tamiya will be releasing the new Acura NSX (or is it still a Honda NSX) in 1/24 scale later this year. The new NSX is the successor to the original although a lot has changed in the last 2 decades since the production of the original first started. This time around, the NSX will be AWD, a Hybrid and an automatic only. However, these differences do not hinder the car's overall performance and enjoyment at all.
Tamiya has a good record with their car models and the latest one announced is a 1/24t scale Mazda Roadster (MX-5. This kit has a release date of November 2015, but no recommended price has been released as of this time.
Tamiya has released a 1/12th scale Tyrrell 003 this month. This model does use parts from previous releases, but new mouldings have been added to accurately replicate the Tyrrell 003 as seen at the Monaco GP of 1971.
This thoroughbred late 1980s monster was developed for competition racing, namely the Group A touring car races that were considered the pinnacle of their era.
As such, the Skyline GT-R (R32) was fitted with a powerhouse 2,568cc inline-six DOHC, 24-valve, twin turbocharged and intercooled 280hp engine. It was loaded with cutting edge technology such as Nissan's original ATTESA E-TS variable torque-split 4-wheel drive train, and a SUPER HICAS 4-wheel steering system.
For those who wanted to take its performance (and looks) to even greater heights, there was also a healthy market for customizing parts; principal among the suppliers were Nismo, Nissan's racing arm. This precision plastic model recreates a customized Skyline GT-R (R32) fitted with a bevy of after-market parts including Nismo offerings.
