Like the TLV-Neo castings, it seems that there is a re-occuring theme here. Take a casting and amend as necessary to get the most out of it.
Such an example is the Y31 Gloria, re-created twice more as part of this excellent 1/43 series from Tomytec.
This JDM is very difficult to distinguish between LV-N43 18a to LV-N43 21a. So it may be the case I just pick one and be done with it. However, if it is anything like the Cedric taxi, then I am on a winner, for sure. Both models are to be released in October 2017.
LV – N 43 – 21 a Gloria Sedan V 30 E Braham (gray)
Y31 type Cedric / Gloria celebrating its 30th anniversary in June 2017.
To commemorate it, TLV is under active development on 1/43 scale.
This time we will add 6 lighter body late type 4-door sedan.
“V30E Bloam” after the minor change in 1989 was reproduced.
Three number bodies unique large bumpers, thick side molds, as well as lattice-shaped grilles and tail lamps, which are features of the latter type, were newly produced.
Of course, the difference between Cedric / Gloria is also expressed. Body color is dark blue metallic (cedric), gray metallic (gloria) are two colors.
