Found this via Google Japan.

http://tanayan.ojaru.jp/Marcos.html

Apperently it is a 1/24 scale kit model, which basically is just the shell. The rest you use from the Tamiya (http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/list/24car/kit24001.htm) Mini Cooper. This means you can make it exactly like your own car.

Do any of  you know where you can buy it? It is made by a company called RS MODELCARS PRODUCTS.

Hi Dennis,
This is a garage kit from Japan that is long since gone out of production.There were 2 versions, a road going one and a 66 LeMans car. There were also a Mini Jem and a Broadspeed in the Joker range that they produced.

The kit itself is very simply boxed and is designed to use some of the parts from the Tamiya Mini 1275 S Mk1 model kit.
Instructions are in Japanese with hand drawn illustrations and are easy to follow.

The kit includes the body shell with separate floor pan, the bonnet, seats, indicators, petrol cap, dash, boot floor and a lexan moulded sheet for the glass and headlamp covers.
Quality is fairly good but there is a fair bit if flashing on most of the parts.

This is a rare kit, production numbers would have been very low. I was lucky enough to get an unmade kit in France about 10 years ago, since then I have only seen one other kit for sale on an auction site in Japan.
Here are a few photos of the one I have.







I don't know of any other Mini Marcos kit in this scale, but there are a few in the 1/43 scale as well as some slot car models.

Hope this helps,
Neil.

Cheers Mate
Yeah i have found this information, and actually figured out that it is virtually unobtainable.
I'am currently in Japan, and did actually find a kit for sale on Yahoo Japan, but it ended today, before i managed to figure out how to bid.
