Finally took the camera out after the BMW week, for some serious action. Not many shots, but I am quite happy with the outcome.

The first in line is the Kobelco Rough Terrain Crane. I have a strong bond with these construction machinery, and the RTC was a must-have. Tomica’s recreation is really smooth, with a fully extendable arm and a rotating base, alongside realistic wheels and exceptional tampo work.

I need something to lift now!

The next is possibly the finest mainline Tomica in terms of sheer replication.


The Yanmar YT5113 is so superbly crafted, and in a surprising move, given a set of fully replicated wheels, that it feels so realistic. So much that I consider this to be the best mainline release from the Japanese marque. Sadly this is a very obscure offering drowned in the more popular passenger car models, and most hesitate to pick one up. I am glad I did get one with my mega construction machine haul.

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome weekend!
