yes, extremely rare in the US, making Bernard's acquisitions so exceptional. Only since ebay have I been able to get a couple of used vehicles (Doyusha and Tokyo Plamo), both of which somehow made it to the States. As was typical most of it was clones of American production; the Mustang frame looks like a Hawk, with a Strombecker-like drop arm hung off it. And check out the Revell-like controller plugs. Their box art remains my favorite.
