Just got a call from the post office and probably few more TLVs have reached shore.

Regards,
So what are the cars in the package? Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-Xs? Please post some pics of your collection.

This time the import count was huge. I love Jeep Wranglers and other than GL, not aware of any decent makers in 1:64 scale, with such wide range. So it was 6 Jeep Wranglers from US, and 3 TLVs from the US. All purchased on different dates, but all turned up at once, without customs

Below were the TLV purchases:-
  1. Tomica Limited Vintage Nihonsha no Jidai 09 Skyline 2000GT (Silver)
  2. Tomica Limited Vintage LV-162b Skyline 2000GT (Red)
  3. Tomica Limited Vintage NEO Abunai Deka 07 Nissan Cedric (Black)

I am not too sure how the colors Lavender / Green will look on the Skyline 2000GT-X, as the image shown on the page is not confidence aspiring for me. Might be will order one, once I see your post.

Also have to save some money for at least one amongst the Tobu Bus / Hiroshima Electric Railway / Kokusai Kogyo. I think the orange Tobu looks fantastic. What you think?

Nice ones. I also have a 1/18 GT3 RSR from Auto Art. Though I feel that with a rear engine layout, engine detailing is a disappointment in Porsche models, as most of the engine is hidden / covered, and the rear boot-lid opening is narrow. Mine has just two chrome air intakes (I believe), in terms of detailing.

Absolutely agree to it. Would love to see the GT3 RSR

AutoArt detailing is fantastic. Bburago doesn't even come close to them. Maisto and Welly are better than Bburago.

Maisto's 1:18 300 SLR for example

I agree. The Orange bus is fantastic.

I also received AutoWorlds today. These were released in December. I have all the 72 AutoWorlds released so far. I now need showcases.

The AutoWorlds and TLVs are fantastic pieces of sculpture in 1:64. What do you say?

You seem to have a fleet out there. Nice collection. I have one AW but am not too impressed with the paint quality around the corners or the wheel movements. Yes, they are definitely better than GLs, off course.

They say "all is fair in love and war". Fell in love with a Blue GT3 RS 4.0 and made her mine
