An original Taisan body has "Made in Japan" stamped on the base. The re-re body has "58172 1" instead of just "58172". The actual moulding is identical.
Indecently, the body set was re-released twice before the 84399 white GT2. The first time as a Japan only Modeller Gallery show special, I'm not sure on the year. The stickers were sold separately. It came with both the black Taisan wing and the lower white PIAA version:
Then as a globally available but still limited edition in 2011, again with no stickers The stickers don't have a part number like the body, and no English text so they may have been Japan
It's easy to tell if you have one of these bodies without the packaging, as they have no drilled post holes.
