Kyosho Honda Minicar Collection - Honda Integra Type R




This is a 1/64 scale Honda Integra Type R from "Kyosho Honda Minicar Collection" series produced by Kyosho.

 The card containing information about the car in Japanese text :-(




Honda Integra is a compact luxury sports car, produced by Honda from 1985 to 2006. The sporty front-wheel-drive car was able to carry five passengers with a two-door coupe or four-door sedan available. The Integra was included on Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list six times: in 1987, 1988, and 1994 through 1997. The GS-R model was called out specifically in 1994 and 1995. It made a return on the Ten Best list as the Acura RSX, in 2002 and 2003. The Integra Type-R (DC2) was named the "best front-wheel-drive drivers car ever" by Evo Magazine in 2006, and has a pedigree descended from Honda Formula 1 cars.

So let's have a look at this Integra;







Paint job quality is very good, the detailing and marking are equally impressive.




The tail lights/brake lights are made of plastic parts;



The same goes to the head lights/front lights;



The interior is sealed so I can't really show you the whole interior area but from the very little that I can see, I can safely say that the interior detailing is very good;



Overall, I think this is a very good die cast car model of Honda Integra at 1/64 scale. Everything from the casting, sculpt, painting finishing, marking and detailing as well as interior set is at top notch level.

  1. I always like the rear design of Honda Integra Type R. Nice of you to keep the miniature.

  2. the Integra has for me a quite average design, like most of the japanese, european and even american cars from the 90’s in this segment, specially those derived from a sedan... i mean, it’s nice, curved and everything else, but is not as distinctive as the models from the 80’s and previous... but this could be a advantage for the customizers, so that explains its presence in the world of tuning...

    now, the model itself is very well done, nicely detailed, i like that yellow and even the white wheels which give it more sportiness... looks really good along with the NSX !!! by the way, Kyosho began to poison me !!! =OOOOO
