This may be one to reach the main splash page of the site, recently discovered that AutoArt are not the only ones who have been granted a licence to produce a scale model of the Lexus LC.

Make Up Co, Ltd. of Japan have also just been signed off to produce a right hand drive and much smaller 1/43 scale model of the LC.

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

This particular model converts from yen to USD at an eye-watering 292 dollars and appears to only be available from a Japanese Toy Retailer.

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

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.
