The Navi Miniature Car Collection is a promotional offering thought to be associated with Kyosho and a Japanese beverage company named DyDo. The castings made in 1:100 scale represent decades of Japanese Automotive History. Their bases note "Navi Dydo". The are from a series called "1/64 Scale Mini Car Kit' available in 2004. Each car came in two colors with many depicting actual Japanese race cars. Each casting was packaged in a cylindrical (?) display box. Visual images show the dis-assembled parts of the casting on a bubbled flat sheet with a screw driver provided to attach the base plate. The reverse side of the blister card (?) features a historical image and printed specifications of the car provided. One example is the Mazda R 360 Coupe that itself is a scarce 1:1 to find.

A series by Kirin packaged similiarly is also known.
