    BMW Z8 Minichamps Stratusgrau/Elfenbein

    I was very lucky this weekend, I finally found a Z8 1/12 Kyosho this for years I was looking for. I also found this little Z8 two colors. I did not know it was a model. Someone had heard?

    I am always hoping to see a Topaz/Crema Kyosho in 1/12 but I've only seen it in Black/Red and Silver/Black in the big size. I see a lot of those Minichamps models on EBay, and have a couple on my shelf, but have never been to their website to see which ones they do.

    There were a few of those "Shamu" two-tone cars made. They are all "BMW Individual" models and none made it across the pond.

    I was thinking you were talking just about the Minichamps model cars, the real two tone cars can be seen here.

    Andrew,

    There is a person who is well-respected in the diecast community who specializes in custom diecasts, repaints, etc. His name is Paul Kravchak, and his business is KNS Models

    http://www.knsmodels.com/

    I've been meaning to box up my 1:12 Z8 and send it to him to have him redo the interior in black/crema.
