Hitari Japanese voice 1/15 RC KITT is out in Singapore!!!! Key differences with the English and Japanese version: - Japanese and English sounds - Faster scanner speed on the Japanese version - Fuel cap "Try Me" button does not gives the scanning "whoosh whoosh" sound on the Engli...

They did have a radio-controlled KITT several years back, but I only saw it one time. As for your question, I think making the die-cast into a radio-controlled KITT would destroy the resale value of the model. I suppose it could be done if they (ERTL) used a plastic body for KITT. That might be a g...

I am damn impressed with all your customising to make KITT and KARR looks more accurate... I do not have the courage to do it...

A black base?!? That certainly is strange. Hang on to it, perhaps its an error in production which may fetch a high sum one day. Or it may just be the second batch production run. I wouldn't mind it, I think it looks cool when KITT is displayed on it. Please provide some pics. ...dunno about that, ...

It's a clever angle to create an effect of the horse jumping over KITT... You never know if the horse will fail... Why risking hurting the animal and damaging KITT?

I really don't recommend using an eraser to get rid of the white lettering. The friction from the eraser rubs off part of the rubber on the tires and leaves scuff marks on the originally glossy tires. I recommend using paint thinner and lightly rubbing the paint off with a soft cloth. In certain an...

Anyway I found the tyres very glossy... After using eraser won't the tyres be matted?

Ok... Just to express my "uniquity" here. Does anyone get overly bothered by the paint app or any defects? I am a perfectionist and always want my toys/collection to be of perfect condition. I checked through this KITT when I got it and yet when I reached home, 2 scratches, one on the left door and ...

Also... How do you guys managed the removable top on KITT? It does not stay in place and keep dropping. I had to resort to putting both pieces into the boot! I would suggest putting a thin piece of black electrical tape right down the middle part of the t-top brace. Looks cool and the plastic cover...
