Hasegawa's Great static kits of Group C racers are back as 'limited editions'.
 
These kits have sharply detailed one piece bodies and are very suitable for conversion to slot cars.

There are a great number of aftermarket decals to allow you to replicate your favorite team. It's likely we won't see the limited editions in the USA so order from the usual suspects in Japan (I prefer hlj.com). Prices vary from vendor to vendor so I am not quoting them here. SAL postage from Japan is not that expensive so go ahead and order if you want them.

Here are two Hasegawa 962C's that I built some time ago as static models. The Daytona 24 winner replica is a past Hobby Expo contest winner.

This is a Mazda 767B LM-GTP that I built from a Hasegawa kit. It has not been announced as a reissue yet.

 For those of us who don't know, who are the "usual suspects" to order from? I see Hasegawa has them on their website in the US, but they're "chotto takai" (a bit pricey) !

In Japan, their web-store sells them at 2,600~2,800 yen, around $26@ plus shipping.

Also, Hobby Search Japan is a huge online Japanese retailer - carries everything related to Japanese hobbies.

 

Plaza Japan on ebay is also excellent.  I have only used him for train stuff but I have communicated directly with him for special requests for stuff he doesn't have listed and he has always come through.

i have used the Omron Porsche model body for a slot car project about 10 years ago, mounted it on a TSRF chassis. Yes it is a great 1 piece body, so i will hunt down these reissues. thanks for the tip!

This very hard to find version of the Mazda Group C is expected from Hasegawa as a limited edition in July 2018.

Hasegawa will show an all-new tooling Nissan R91CP 1/24 static plastic model kit at the September All-Japan model hobby show. Hasegawa's Group C kits are generally good subjects for conversion to hardbody slot cars.

It is expected to be available at dealers in December 2018.

Hasegawa Group C models make GREAT slot cars.  I race a Jaguar, but I really like that Mazda.  :D
