Here’s my latest purchase: the Tomica Honda Civic Type R in white. I had to get this white version first. I might get the black one, but not so soon.

A very cool model, this one. Usual Tomica; black ‘racing’ wheels for the ‘sporty’ vehicles and suspension. Rims get a red outline paint job to mimic the real Type R wheels. Nice touch. As is the case with most Tomica models, there is an opening part. Only one, and the said part is the hood/bonnet. Also, there are headlights ( clear, probably linked with the window piece), logo tampos front and rear, and even a separate little black plastic piece for the rear wing structure! Very nice touch. My only problem with the Civic is the rear windscreen is painted black instead of a cutout of the metal body. Another cost cutting measure typical of current Tomicas... Apart from that, everything else is fantastic.

Anyhow I'll let the pics do the talking. Thanks for dropping by to read! Have a great Sunday, everyone!
