So found this little gem on ebay once. Ordered it last week and here it is.
More pics soon!
I have one too .. they are really small !
Base and buildings
Trees, lamp posts, etc
The doors to the customer's area open with a button at the top
Service bays that also launch the car when the red buttons is pressed
Oh, what is that turning up for some work?
Small scale, but I think quite good details on a NSX-R
The showroom has a door at the back, that work as a ramp
At the top there's a thumbscrew you cna use to rotate the car on the display
And here's Mr. Honda
For size reference I put it next to a 24 inch LCD and a keyboard
The whole set looks quite nice and will sit on my desk for now.
Subarashii desu yo!
Is there an Accord in the set ?
That Honda man is the exact uniform all service operators in Japanese dealers wear. Uniform in Japan is an obsession it something else which we will never get to grips in England.
There is which uniform to wear for each ocassion what purpose and for which staff.
Caps always on indoors take hat off outdoors.
Meeting jacket has be crease free no black marks two pens in top pocket , name badge on.
Honda whites have to be white no matter what..if it dirty you are going to be frown upon.
its an obsession, In Japan I was constantly in and out of these robes and etiquette
There's another set with S2000 in it, plus few more cars. I'll find out.
In the meantime, I found 2 nice details inside the reception
Leaflets and logo on the wall
Current line-up in Japan:
Found the following:
No. 81 - Honda N-ONE
No. 83 - Honda Insight - Patrol Car
No. 118 - Honda CR-V
There's a few more on ebay: S2000, Civic Type-R, Jazz, Beat and some older models. Unfortunately no Accord. But if I find another one in same scale (1/64) I'll buy it.
I bought another on Rob this will remain in the box in a dark room for a long long time.. Will pass it down in 60-70 years it will be a bob or two.
You should get this as well
Tomica 78 Honda Accord CVCC HM29 EX Silver HDC Honda Direct Marketing Corp Japan | eBay
geeez seen the body gap on the door that toy is damaged.
I think it's just an old toy. You could restore it and paint it white!
