In the same 18th series, they produced kits of a Surtee's CanAm Lola, a Nissan Group 7 type from the Jpn Sport Proto series and a Porsche 910. I think it was limited to the four.

The 'big' set I guess is a combo of the other two sets, yet it costs about $15 US more? Does it contain extras????

Unless you're in a real hurry, I'd wait and see or at least shoot off an email to HLJ to ask if they know the diff between the sets.

BTW, HLJ answers emails very promptly if sent during regular biz hours M-F, 9-5 in Jpn.

1999/HobbySearch's sites. Both big Jpn onlines and in the know w/ any new releases for the Jpn home market. Anything aftermarket for a kit and it'll prob be mentioned there.
