Each month at least one new model is release, These may be in different versions,
e.g. The Lotus 49 : Lotus 49 Early Type - Lotus 49 Late Type or Lotus 49C Works and Rob Walker Version
and the Lotus 77 : Holland Grand Prix and Austria Grand Prix - Japan Grand Prix - Canada Grand Prix. so you can pick your favorite

Multi-media models are manufacture from a variety materials, thus the name, the body are usually cast in resin or white metal, the engines, suspension, chassis and other small parts are also white metal. Photoetch details are used where fine detail is required or where thin flat parts needs to be used, such as wing end plates on F1 cars.

Generally the wheels are CNC machined from aluminium as are other small round parts. All kits have rubber tyres (Model Factory Hiro vulcanise tyres in-house). High quality decals are supplied to finish the models to life like effect.

The instructions are well detailed diagrams taken from CAD assemblies showing where and how parts fit together.

Tips and Hints
Assembly is no different to a plastic kit, but here are a few tip to help you get the best from your model.

Wash all parts prior to painting to remove any mould release agents. If possible always use a Etch Primer/Metal Primer on metal parts, this keys into the metal making sure your paint does on peel off when being handled, you can also primer resin with Etch primer if needed.

Most small white metal parts can be bent with ease, so it is best to test fit assembles before gluing to check for fit, also checking if flash etc needs cleaning off. In some cases you might need to reshape body panels as well, but this is not difficult so don't worry.

Use Super Glue (CA) or 2 part Epoxy Glue on metal and resin as plastic glue will NOT work on these materials, they work by melting the plastic together.

So if you are looking for a challenging model to build or just can't find the subject in plastic, these are for you.

Hiroboy.com has been an official dealer since 2006. We offer customers a 10% discount on all new pre-order (Early Bird) MFH releases.Keep an eye out for the pre-order listings.

We stock a large selection of the models available, but we can't stock all versions of each model all the time. We place orders with Japan on the 25th of each month and our deliverys arrive approx 5th of the following month (sometimes longer but that is due to the time UK customs takes to clear parcels, over which we have no control.)

If an item is listed a Special Order item, this means we do not have stock in the UK and will be ordered from Japan on the 21st (as above)
