Tomica just landed

After a massive farce with Swiss Post which led to Japan Booster sending through duplicate parcels for me, I managed to sort out the return logistics and then re-order for August 2018. So these three have been added to the TLV-Neo Garage – I have been really slack in getting the photos up and a…

TLV – Neo for August 2018
