This is a little departure from the normal realm of 1/64 TLV-Neo’s that I acquire.
I have been a fan of these, but never really taken the plunge to get one as one of the prohibitive things is the price – which is hitting almost 1/43 category.
But as with all things TLV-Neo, this is a bit of a no brainer. First it is 1/64, and second, it fits in with the rest of the collection.
It is a beautifully detailed cab and flatbed – and you can see why this hits the near £25 mark. They Toyota Town Ace fits in superbly.
There are two things that really stand out with this model.
The undercarriage is exquisitely detailed – you don’t even get this kind of attention on a Corgi Vanguard at the same price.
Also the tyres are all individual. And that includes the spares. This is quite something as it would have been easier to just do a moulded version and be done with it. But that is what sets the standard with TLV’s from the rest and a benchmark.I have yet to get a Oversteer, but these are on order…….
The only flaws I would comment on are the lack of detail within the wheels. I would like to see hints of black added to them to emphasise the steel rims that are standard on such vehicles. Now with a very steady hand, I think it could be done – but that would mean mucking about with an expensive casting………….HW’s are OK as they are cheap……………
Very pleased with this one – now looking for a good deal on the Nissan Civilian from Japan Booster…………
