The smaller, lesser known JDM models are somehow more appealing than the standard mass of Cedric, Crown, and Skyline.
I have opted to add a Mitsubishi Galant to the fold for two reasons:
1) the body colour
2) it is a ‘Bishi – and they are not made that often made as a diecast model.
That colour scheme just reminds my SuperKings K-70 Porsche Turbo. So hence why I was probably drawn to it.
I can’t say too much about it TBH, as it is not an outstanding model – there is nothing at all that ensure that it blows all other models out of the water. Usual Tomica detail applies. Yet, it is essential as an entry within The Garage documenting the JDM cars of the 1970s.
For those who collect TLV’s, this is back fill. Which contradicts what I said about it being an essential collection model. So whilst it should be part of your collection I would not rush out and get it – it can be procured when there is little of interest about in terms of new castings. Get my drift?
