I have the complete collection of all AWs and about 150 TLVs. Building a display for them.

Btw, did you get the orange Erga bus in March?

What started as toys for son has now become a collection, since he is a child who does not break anything. Question I have is what kind of storage does one buy/build via carpenter for such stuff? Name:  ImageUploadedByTeamBHP1506855440.440942.jpg

Nice regular imports definitely. I got the world tour porsche only but did not go for the buses. The next one that is expected is the 5000 km Datsun Bluebird.

Saw some pictures on the facebook and seems some new trucks are expected in the near future.

I was expecting to see your complete TLV collection, the way you have probably displayed it some place.

My toys are all stacked up in the almirah.

Mine are in 2 plastic storage boxes. Will try to put them out on Sunday for you . Still building a display for them.

The upcoming trucks are lovely. Did you get the LeMans Mazda 787B? Expensive..

I will be waiting eagerly. Cannot afford the LeMans as the pricing seems to be outrageous to me. A white version is also coming up in the near future.
Sometimes I wonder, that if I had a local contact out there at Tokyo, who would only charge me the actual car price plus the shipping at actual, would that be a clever deal? But then I observe that AmiAmi already sells them at a reduced premium of at least 20% off. Are you aware of any other online seller, which can work out at even cheaper rates?

For my 1/64 cars I use these cases which are originally meant to store sewing reels. Have 7 of these right now. Available in the US at all Hobby Stores. You can even buy them at HobbyLobby for 40% off using their daily coupon system.

I would be glad if someone finds a way to import them here at reasonable prices since getting these from the US is no easy task.

Looks just like this.
