I received this the other day, and I have to say, what a piece of sh*t!! The QC is terrible, I've got models from the 90's etc with no problems at all. This thing is worse than a SunStar!!!

The car is very very greasy / slimey, I've never had that before, plus the model smells of industrial cleaner too.
It has various marks & poor paint, plus the decals are rubbish & marked.

The box has a load of grease on it - it was fresh out of the tissue paper too!!

Posted Image

A huge paint run on the rear door.

Posted Image

Some random dig mark in the rear bumper, next the Michelin decal which has a bit missing.

Posted Image

Some random dirty mark on the roof scoop.

Posted Image

Some random Black line in the decal.

Posted Image

Some random scuff mark on the rear of the roof.

Posted Image

Random bubbles in the decal, on the Red & Blue.

Posted Image

Some scruffy paint on the bumper.

Posted Image

All in all, it's complete rubbish!! No way worth the 100 EUR I paid!!

I am going to return it, and not get a replacement.

That's too bad Craig! I had on my wishlist that model... :gaah:  There is no way you can be sure you're getting a good one with that QC. Too bad Kyosho.

It's nice apart from those, usual Kyosho tbh, they don't seem to have made any upgrades.

The inside is slimey on mine, and so are the tyres.

Sheeesh that's terrible.
Thanks for the heads up Craig.
Is this the model Kyosho apparently told shops to unlist recently?

It is yeah. So I don't know why I was sent one. I guess they recalled them as it's complete crap :gaah:  :rolleyes:

- Edit, I got refunded. They will be sending a courier :eusa_clap:

I think that's an old stock pic as it was meant to have that on it, but they released a day version instead.

I just wondered if that's why they recalled them and now they got the pods?
Hard to say with this sellers pics maybe it'll be clearer once more sellers get them?

Wow Craig sorry to see all these issues. The Integrale I bought didn't have these issues or I'm just blind.....will need to check it out again. Hope you can find something well worth it my friend. :occasion14:

There's another one on ebay with the stock photo showing the lamp pod.
Why these people can't just take a photo of the actual item I don't know :gaah:

You were right I sent a message and got this in return.....

"Thanks for your message. You're right, I was using a stock photo and have just checked the model and am sorry to say it does not come with headlights.
I will need to change the photo; would you like me to cancel your order and refund you, as were you only buying it for the headlights?
Thanks and kind regards"

Fair enough so I got them to refund me........

How can they let a photo like that out into the public,do they want to put buyers off for good. :dunno: Sorry Craig to see your model as bad as it was.Imagine you had just started out and this was your first Kyosho model,you would be so upset seeing this.

I just don't understand what they are doing now, it seems that the QC department are on holiday or something  :rolleyes:  it's diabolical. Kyosho used to be a great company & a lot of my Kyosho models are amongst some of my favourites in my collection.
You are right Darren, if you were really into the Integrale etc & wanted the best for the money & that showed up you'd feel majorly deflated.


Sort it out Kyosho!!!!
