Model of the Day: Aoshima Nissan C110 Skyline 4-door in purple...
Whether you are aware or not, you have looked at the photo above for quite a long time. After about a month of experimenting with styles, we settled on the layout we have now, plus a title with this purple beauty in the background.
Well today we rearranged the furniture a bit, and decided it was a good time to change the photo in the title. We stayed with the same diecast brand, Aoshima out of Japan, but went with a Nissan Laurel to take the place of our valiant 4-door Yonmeri. While unplanned, the purple Aoshima never got its own post. It should have. So as it heads into a time of rest, let's show all the photos we took that day.
And let me say this too. We want to at the front of the line when it comes to JDM diecast and brands like Kyosho and Tomica Limited Vintage. Hot Wheels' push in this direction has been beyond fantastic, and I know of many collectors who have to pinch themselves when they consider the plethora of classic Japanese cars Hot Wheels is and will be churning out (and I have been told by several folks in the know that 2013 will be the best year yet, and then will subsequently be topped by 2014).
And with more and more collectors being introduced to these cars, they will surely stretch to other brands like Tomica, Aoshima, and Kyosho. And in so doing, they will also see the amazing non-JDM models that these brands create. It is our hope that Lamley can be an easy tool for those collectors to discover these amazing models, while our partner Daboxtoys Model Cars will be the place to get them.
So enjoy these models, and pick up a few.
