This model is approximately 230mm in length and features movable parts, including an opening hatch and rotating components. The kit uses five runner molding colors and includes some pre-painted parts, allowing assembly without the need for painting.

The model is equipped with a specially designed LED light-emitting unit. It starts emitting light when the included magnetic switch is brought close and can display multiple light patterns, representing different states like the starting sequence and cruising conditions. The kit includes a dedicated stand, a die-cast nameplate, and a water transfer decal.

The model is made from ABS plastic and does not require adhesive due to its snap-fit type assembly. It began release in May 2024, with a limited quantity of 900 pieces available in Japan. The price is ¥6,050 (approximately $44).

The finished product is assembled, and some parts have been painted. The image is under development. Detailed specifications may differ from the actual product.

This product is planned and manufactured by Orange Cat Industries and imported and sold by Wave Co., Ltd.
