First of the Celica castings that I have reworked. Two tone repaint and custom made decals. I also painted the rims white.
I thought this scheme (and number) was bit more fitting to a Toyota than a BRE scheme.


But isn't that a BRE scheme?

Well, I finally found the 2000GT, FR-S, and Hilux. Of all places, at my local Ralph's market in their abbreviated toy "section". I never found the green Celicas but I did find the later, yellow versions.

Thanks Scale-Master!!

Today I miraculously came across the laser decal paper I wanted in a shop, so I wasted no time getting started on the decals. (I was originally planning to order it online)

WOW!! Lots of very cool diecasts here!!
Went through the whole thread and loved it...
But does anyone know if there exsists a model/diecast/toy of the Toyota Trueno TE47/TE61 (based on the KE30 Corolla)??

it's probably been asked before (maybe by me), but does anybody make a model of the 76 Isuzu Gemini? closest I can find is the Opel Kadett, but there are minor differences between the two. I think it would be cool to get a model of my car.

I didn't see the Datsun, but I grabbed 3 Deloreans. also wouldn't ring up. I got a matchbox, too, so the lady just rang up 4 matchboxes.

I got it at FAO Schwartz in New York city a few weeks ago. They had so many Boulevard Brats that they were practically falling off the hook.

Yup had the same experience at a local Toys R us a couple of weeks ago. A ton of Brats, no 510 wagons. Supposedly, some have been found at TJ Maxx and Marshalls.
