    Roadpacer would be awesome :gtpflag:

    I’d even settle for an Isuzu Statesman

    I could think of worse cars, they were pretty close to the Familia GT-Xes of the tome due to their Mazda partnership.

    Basically a foreign importer in general - I see them on a lot of Mercedes as well.

    Here they are, part two and three of three of part two of two of Ferrari month goodness. Even though it’s now April I bought these last month so still counts, right?

    Beauty. 246GT is my favourite of the two.

    Is there anywhere to buy bulk, crappy 1/64 scale metal vehicles to use for war gaming scenery? I don't want to by anything 'good' because I'm going to set them all on fire.

    Would eBay be worth a look?

    EDIT: My bad, seems I should be looking at 1/34 scale.

    Shem appears, and is gone again. :lol: Gorgeous shots of the Ferraris @domalorite :tup:

    Here to share my blogpost on GroupB's latest acquisition: 1 of 25 Tomica Limited Vintage chrome car.



    Thank you so much for the opportunity! @GroupB
    I think it was the same car they sold as Ford Escort in the States. Sold real well.

    What series is that Back to the Future car? Was Retro Entertainment replaced?
    Sorry about that, old username of @W3HS :D

    I think it's called "Replica Entertainment" now. Came in the current set with the BTTF Ford Convertible with manure on it, Gray Lambo from Dr Strange, the Advan NSX GT3 and I think the gold Corvette from that Monkey Garage TV show. (or whatever it's called :p)

    I definitely prefer the new card/blister over the oversized Retro series.

    Not GT but NFS. Last RWB release by Tarmac, for now.

    I have just the Apple one on order. Not big on Porsches, but vintage Apple livery appealed to me. Amiami has that, TLV F40 & one of those Ignition Model RX-7 on hold for me. I hope to get them shipped out to me soon!

    Good selection of cars. Didn't know amiami sells Ig 1/64. But I've gone cold on Ig now. Not interested in them anymore. I bought the Civic and white and blue RX7 in last months Tarmac sale. Only opened the Civic. The RX7 are still boxed.

    Browsing the amiami site I saw this

    https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=TOY-SCL3-03030

    Says it is from One Model. Yet we all know it is just an OEM make that is suppose to be limited to 999 pieces. As you can see in the photo it does not have the name plate on the base. This I think is really cheap, as in really bad. That means our limited 999 pieces version is not actually 999 pieces. Be careful when buying no brand stuff!!

    They really need to do the classic vintage cars already. To me, that's what made them special in the larger scale market.
    Oh wow. You need to blog this stuff, inform the people! :crazy:

    Underrated casting. Living under the shadow of Bugattis and Paganis in the box set where it came from.

    Some good stuff coming down the line. Too bad I quit collecting basics.

    It annoys me to see that you have this car and the F40, whilst I don't:lol: I combined them in the same order with AmiAmi, and the Porsche isn't in stock yet whilst the F40 is. HOPEFULLY I don't have to wait too long.

    On a roll these few days. Maybe cause I’m approaching my endgame and I’m getting as much as I want beforehand. I preordered two yellow F40 and still waiting on them, and in the meantime I went to the grocery shop and came home with this lot

    That hauler scene just got more epic.

    The TLV book is nice. @GroupB has posted some images of American cars, but there are some other eye catching stuff too

    Mazda RX500 anyone?

    Is that a blue hanamidai loader at the back?

    Another loader!

    Don’t know anything about this. A silhouette variation?

    Someone in Intsagram commented that the fitment on the TLV F40 is "so bad".

    What the hell?
