I will be buying one of the models above but i am torn as it is known that Black Kyosho models suffer from the dreaded paint rash which puts me off.Has the Quality improved with Black paint from Kyosho or do i still have a right to be nervous .
The Black looks the best to me but what do you Guys think,  Black or White ?

Black looks way better to me, the only thing I don't like on either car is the soft top colour, but out of the two if I were to buy one it would be black. I can't comment on the paint rash issues as I don't have a recent kyosho model, but of course my 2 older kyosho models from 10+ years ago do have a little bit here and there but not too bad.

This one is a toughie for sure Darren. I would have instantly picked black before, but having seen some of these white Kyosho Rollers, I'm more inclined towards the white, it's just so much more regal, especially with a light interior. I'm pretty sure Kyosho quality has not changed so black is likely to get paint rash. If white gets it, it won't be visible.

The red top keeps me from wanting the black one. White is the best all around and I think it'll show off well in person.

I'd go with the Black one, the White one looks more like a wedding car :twocents:

The white will look very good in person, pick this one! Don't like the red top of the black.

Black for me... With the red pinstripe and the red roof,

It blends nicely,

As for the blue roof on the white one, doesn't cut it for me...

Wow,such diverse opinions and looks like it is split down the middle.Thanks for the replies Guys.This is tough .......I still can't make a decision,the Heart says Black but the Head says White ?Never felt like this before over what colour to get. :dunno: :yahoo: :occasion14: I only have room for one of them so it has to be one i am happy with and at that price it will only be the one model of it.If they did it in the Blue versions i have seen of the real car that would be an easy option.  :rolleyes:

The white one has no side character line (red on the black model)? I'd personally choose black. Majestic! And white Kyoshos could get paint rash too.
