-SHK-D492 is an optional decal that collects logos that were not included in the base kit decal.
The popular SHK-D472 is a luxurious full decal set that includes decals for 10 versions of 5 races from 1972 to 1973, and is compatible with kits from the time when photo-etched parts were not included. This time, it is only compatible with products released in September 2023, and is limited to 2 races and 2 versions, which are the same as the base kit. The color of the gold is also yellowish to match the decal included with the base kit, making it completely different from SHK-D472, which matches Mr. Color No. 9 “Gold”.
The base kit is a late model based on the individual preserved in the Honda Collection Hall.
Therefore, it does not completely match the shape of the car that actually competed in the race.
There is also a mistake in specifying the paint for the earlier model. For this product, we have prepared decals that are closest in shape to the base kit and reproduce the Japanese GP version that was the championship deciding race. Most of the decals that come with the kit have the wrong logo size. Even if we release optional decals, this problem cannot be solved. Therefore, we only released full decals and changed the size of almost all decals. We also used bright fluorescent red ink and plating to make it as faithful as possible to the actual vehicle.
