Can you identify this KITT remote control car

Post by corlando52 » Mon Jun 15, 2009 6:05 pm

OK, my brain cells are dying, I just know it...either that, or I'm too involved in making my real sized KITT to think of anything else.
I have 3 different Remote Control KITTs...The new Hitari, the Aoshima/Skynet, and the last one is the one I can't remember the manufacturer, and need your help. It comes in a tube, and I have a picture of it below, but right now it's packed in a box that I can't get to right now, and it's driving me crazy!!!
So, Can you identify the manufacturer of the KITT r/c in a tube?
BONUS QUESTION: What scale is it? It appears to be a bit smaller than the Skynet, which is also in the picture below.

Thanks!

Thanks! That's only part of it....here's more. I also have the larger 2 RC KITTs and now a life size one I'm working on.
You'll notice in the previous picture, there looks like there are 2 Skynet KITTs, but one I customized into a slot car, complete with scanner, working brake lights and foglights.

And here is the first model I made of KITT out of a 1982 TransAm Firebird model back in 1982. The scanner works, it is sound sensitive so when you speak to it (or clap your hands), the scanner comes on and it says "I am the voice of the Knight Industries Two Thousand...,etc." I used a small cassette tape player for the voice, which I hid in the base. I won first prize in a model contest at a local Hobby shop that year!
