Big things with little cars

Tomica Limited Vintage Neo: Mazda ɛ̃fini FD3S RX-7 Type R

This is the other “FD” “Type R” that my dad brought back from last month’s trip to Hong Kong. And installing those mirrors was oh such a pain.

But they look beautiful

You too?

I’m guessing this is a haiku

Sorry Dream Tomica, I’m dumping you for the slimmer, sexier version.

Oh I am not doing these mirror again

Here’s the painful process:

Unfortunately quake putty does not work. And these things will fly if you grip them the wrong way with your tweezers.

Woops, that doesn’t look right

Advertisement

That doesn’t look right either. I can live with it.

Hmm, now I can’t fit it back in the blister. Time for a lighter and needle to melt a hole in it.

Opps, I broke it off while trying to put it away. At least I can fix it this time. Oh wait, Oh no! I chipped the paint!

This doesn’t look good.

Oh well, I always display from this side anyways

May as well grab the silver Sharpie

I give up, you’re going straight in the display case and not into the box again where you’re gonna lose your mirror again

Okay, it’s Monday, I have time to #makeitfit

And some glamour shots before I find a permanent place for you in the Tomica display

And before I forget, Merry Christmas LaLD!
