Product description

Verty rare resin kit from Japan 

As Arawasi told us:

In the 80s-90s a series of most interesting home-made models was released under the name Raccoon Models, based in Kagamigahara, Gifu prefecture. Most were in 1:48 resin with some metal parts and included many aircraft, especially Japanese X-planes, that have not yet been released in that scale. Interior details were non-existent, the quality of the resin was so unsatisfactory that if you left the model under the summer sun it melted and deformed but they are so highly sought after that they are usually sold at very high prices when, if ever, appear on Ebay. In Japan some of them are fairly easy to find and at reasonable prices. They are those that have been released as injection by major manufacturers like Tamiya. The rest if they ever appear on the Japanese Ebay are sold between 100-300$US or more, depending on the aircraft type.
