But what interests us here is the sweet spot he has towards the Javelin, and more particularly the roll cage body which has proved to be one of the most sought after parts in the vintage Kyosho world.

From the website:

This is the closest to the perfect Javelin rollcage I've ever seen. It was available in classic orange, yellow, green, red, blue, black, gold, glitter gold.
Unfortunately, I forgot to post it here when I saw it first, several years ago. So the rollcage is long sold out, but if there's enough demand, perhaps would he reconsider producing some again.

Edgardo also makes a louvered roof:
