  2. The magazines that come with the cars are very good… if you can read Japanese! But seriously, they appear to be fairly decent. For instance, the one that accompanies the 57 Corona is about 20 pages long. The featured car is the Corona and includes a fold-out page with old brochure photos. Other cars in this issue are a 1987 Honda Civic, 1969 Subaru ff-1, 1962 Suzuki 360, History of Daihatsu 1987-1995, and what appears to be a short article on drive through car washes 1963-1972. I am tempted to get all of the volumes, just for the magazines…

  3. The ones I have managed to get so far have mostly been Nissans but I have got a handful of others like the Subaru 1000, Isuzu Florian and Mitsubishi GTO. It is unfortunate that I this collection didn’t come to my attention sooner as I’ve missed out onsome I’d have liked, such as the Nissan Gloria, Mitsubishi FTO and ’57 Toyota Corona :( You are lucky to be able to get them direct. I have only ever got the models on their own, onboxed. Are the magazines that accompany them any good?

  4. This is a terrific collection! I limit my collecting to Toyota models. While these may not be the best versions available, in many cases they are the only versions available and worth getting! I am lucky in the fact my girlfriend lives in Japan and can get the boxed sets for me. The site she orders from is: Fujisan – http://www.fujisan.co.jp/Product/1281681552/b/list1/ – even if you can’t order, you can keep tabs on what has been released. The last car released was #51 1967 Toyota 1600GT (I’m waiting to get mine). Unfortunately Hobby Link Japan doesn’t offer this collection – but I’ll keep checking if any other Japanese companies might offer them to overseas buyers…
