Tomytec has recently unveiled the Tomica Limited Vintage releases scheduled for April 2019.

Both releases scheduled for April so far are recolours of existing Nissan castings.

Around the same time, Tomytec also announced the first Ferraris in the TLV lineup - the F40, Dino 246GT, and Dino 246 GTS, which has been covered by Small Scale Sydney. In the excitement over the F40's opening features, it appears that the opening engine cover on the Dino has been overlooked.
