From what I've seen so far it appears pricing will be similar to the M-03. Tamiya USA is showing the M05 PRO on their site at $240 (USD). The M05 will probably be about the same as any other current kit.

Like the old school bodyshells? Just because what you want isn't necessarily made, sometimes you can improvise. Like this awesome BMW 2002 from our good mate Dave Bain. How cool does it look!



Worked out what it was to begin with yet?

Now?

A Colt NSU TT shell.....

One body that I would love to see made to the M03/05 would be a 1970 Honda 600 Sedan!! My parents had one throughtout my childhood. I believe it was fashioned after the Mini Rover & it is very scale,being FWD. I remember a family friend had one that he had souped-up the 600cc 2cyl air-cooled engine. Very cool car.
