So, uh, who wants a Kyosho 787B? I might not be needing mine much longer.

The Toyota Metropolitan police set looks very interesting. Trying to figure out the police Nissan Gazelle?

Rob.... if you're serious, I might be. ^_^

John... the Nissan Gazelle is from a fictional TV series, so a lot of cars were not what you'd expect for real life service.

66alfa... me too, even though I already have LV-N144 a (white)

Where'd we leave off?

Oh yeah,

As much as I love TLV (it is my favorite brand/line), I wish they'd find a work around for the rivet post that can be seen through the rear window in most of their wagons. I can live with it, but it's annoying as heck. :rolleyes:

The only place I've seen I could get these models is from Amazon, and as beautiful as they look, I don't think I could ever justify spending 20-30 on a single car :(

If you like Greenlight or Auto World, I think you would really like one of the TLV or TLV-Neo.

Deals can be found if you look.

I buy most of mine from AmiAmi - they usually discount 15-20% off the retail. Don't know what the prices are in , but in USD they are good. Sure, they are still more than GL or AW, but I think the quality is better too. I think shipping will be the worst part of getting one.
