Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Hi folks! Long time no post. I’m getting very enthusiastic about all things JDM of late. I guess it shows a little bit in my lastest HAWL. I bought some of these a while ago, but only managed to get them out of their boxes on Saturday.

Ottomobile Nismo 400R

I really like this model, it’s a fantastic example of why resin is a great medium for 1/18 scale and Ottomobile prices their offerings really competitively (are you listening Auto Art?). The detail is top-notch and the model is a great example of what I think is the best-looking of all the GT-Rs.

Next up is my Auto Art Wangan Midnight Akuma No Z, this arrived a long time ago but I only made space for it last week!

Next, the Auto Art Wangan Midnight Blackbird 930. I’ve been waiting for this for a LONG time and I was delighted when Model Citizen offered a pre-order for it. I’m no expert on Japanese animated products, however I am a sucker for modified cars in diecast form, so this needed buying!

Next up is Auto Art’s Inital D Trueno. Now if I understand this correctly this isn’t the anime version, rather the one in the movie. Again, I’m not an expert, but it’s a bloody lovely model and it comes with some very entertaining little details.

Then there’s these two, unfortunately there’s no space for them at the moment, but I’ll unbox them eventually!

I lay the blame squarely at androoo’s feet for this one!
