Recommend the Enif Corolla/Levin if you don't already have it.

Great collection and very nice unique models! I was also surprised to see the Hiace race support van..

Any concept car models, too? :mrgreen:

It's a unique collection indeed, the first one with this subject I have seen so far.

It's also surprising because usually when I think about Toyota (or should I say Toyoda?), reasonably priced cars is what comes to my mind. But this collection reminds us of how rich and wide is their history in the automotive industry and how they have always been in vanguard of motorsport through decades.

Back on the old Autobahn 1:43 forum, we had a forum member called 'Toyotageek'. Obviously 1:43 Toyota's are a more popular than I thought.

Welcome! Seems to be an impressive Toyota collection! Quite opposite to what I'm collecting (coachbuilt & streamline of the 1930s), but I'm always interested in "how to" of other model builders. Would be nice if you could show some pictures of how you're making your model cars :P

Unusual collection and nice handbuilts! Great to see this stuff, the dedication is impressive.

I myself have a couple of different 2000GTs and an Ignition Mk III Supra. Maybe I'll add a Mk IV one of these days.
