The Japanese toy company Shinsei is best known for two ranges of diecast models produced in the 1970s and early 1980s. The "Jet Machines" series consisted of contemporary sports cars in 1/37th scale featuring opening doors and pull-back action. The "Mini Power" series included a wide range of trucks, fire engines and construction vehicles in various smaller scales from 1/48th to 1/130th with many movable parts. The particular scale depended on the size of the original vehicle and was always indicated on the box. In North America, these models were marketed under the Cox name. Later issues of this series were not only made in Japan, but also in Singapore. After production of the "Mini Power" series had been stopped, Shinsei concentrated on detailed models of construction vehicles in more common scales such as 1/50th, 1/64th and 1/87th. A 1/40th scale model of a Mitsubishi L300 minivan in a similar finish like contemporary Diapet and Tomica Dandy models was also released in the 1980s.
