It has been a long while. In the meantime my collection grew up, ever so slightly though. This one is the beginning of a new addiction that is threatening to completely dry my bank balance.
This is the 1/30 Toyota Vitz Jewela (Yaris),
in the color code 3S7, which is Cherry Pearl. The color matters here so much, in fact the little car exists because of the color.
It is a very faithful recreation of the actual car, and there is a good reason; this is a color sample given to customers, to see how the color could work out on the car.
The good thing about these models is that they are really well detailed, and (although they are not for sale, interestingly) you can find quite a lot in both eBay and Yahoo Japan auctions. Furthermore, you can practically find all the new (or recently released) Toyotas in this form, including the massive Land Cruiser and the Prado. The bad thing is they don’t come cheap.
That is why it is a very dangerous addiction, lol. But then again, the entire hobby is a very dangerous addiction to your wallet. xD
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week (crap it’s almost Monday) ahead!
