Post any interesting ITACHARI on these pages! Now if only someone can do this with a minibike!

The following is a DIGITAL LED system that can display animated graphics on your spokes….it is quite amazing—but 200$!

Here are a few pics i have found that are pretty nice:

something different….check out this macross valykyrie 1/100 model itasha styled!

…if you want a model car at 1/24….look towards AOSHIMA for one….or just buy a ITASHA sticker kit which can be had for 5$. Below are some AOSHIMA Models
