I was going to sit this one out but couldn't resist.
I shall be arming a Hino Contessa 1300 Coupe.
It's a 1/32 kit which was a prize at a Ballarat show.  Body detail's not bad but it's lacking on the inside and like a lot ofJapanese car kits is engineered for batteries and a motor.
Contessas were assembled in Israel from '63 to '68 so that gives me some ideas for a back story.
Kit will now tells his connection with Hino cars... ;)

I will?  :-\

I'm not sure I've ever SEEN a Hino car, a few of their trucks, yes, but no cars.

That one looks like a smaller Tatra, presumably it's rear engined, is it?

Rheged:
Is it just me, or is there a faint trace of VW Karman Ghia in the Contessa's ancestry?

JoeP:
Does it come with the bride and groom figures?   ;D

Renault.  Hino built Renault stuff under licence. The Contessa powertrain was developed from the 4CV.
There is a wikipedia page here.

I have posted this same answer previously but it disappeared.  Cheques in the post Chris...

Unfortunately not.
