After seeing yeesoo’s post yesterday of his Tomica diorama, I had to post mine. I don’t have a tenth of the cars he does but this little set is my absolute favorite. Pic heavy.

It’s called the 40th Anniversary Tomica Craftsman and it has 10 cars of ‘craftsman’ with each one having a paperboard building belong to their trade.

The vehicles and buildings also are weathered to look used. Below, a description from a site:

“Tomica body, in order to reproduce the car which craftsmen continue to use for decades, the body color and the like paint is peeling, and be expressed as with mud, dare to look to contain the car seasoned devised.”
