JapanLexus LC: First Generation

$300 Hand-Built Lexus LC 500 Diecast Model Available in Japan

Lexus LC 500 Diecast Model

It turns out AutoArt will not be the only company to produce a diecast model of the Lexus LC, as the Make Up Company of Japan have just announced their plans to manufacture a right hand drive 1:43 scale LC coupe.

Make Up have built a solid reputation for meticulously crafted hand built models with the utmost of detail. Their cars are made in small numbers and at premium cost.

Despite the smaller size (the AutoArt model will be 1:18 scale), the Make Up Lexus LC will retail for an eye-watering ¥31,968 ($290 USD). Pre-orders have opened at the Kid Box Japan toy store, which appears to be the only retailer.

Looks good, but IMO the AutoArt model is a clear step more realistic and accurate.

Also much larger... 1/43 scale is pretty small. AutoArt's quality is top notch too

More realistic and larger scale...but no RHD version available it seems.

Living in a RHD market and knowing this car spiritually should be RHD being Japanese, LHD feels wrong.

This one can also live on my desk far more discreetly.

Yes, if what you're seeking is an RHD scale model, then this is of course a better choice than the Autoart model.
