CC In Scale – Part 5: Japanese Cars Gallery – Taking a Look Around

You may have been wondering what my house looks like with all these models. Here’s one display area.

This is my “Japanese car park”. I haven’t painted the white lines, but there is a food van (a little Suzuki kei truck) parked diagonally, with a Suzuki Cappuccino in front of it, and an ever-changing array of Japanese cars.

The building at the far end is a lovely piece I picked up at a church fete about 30 years ago. It’s an extremely fine carving of a temple with a nice twisted tree and a couple of sacred cranes;


Parked out front of the temple is a little Yamaha Vino 125 scooter;


Let’s wander through the car park and look at the other sights. Are you hungry? Here’s the takoyaki truck. Michiba-san is in the kitchen, ready to serve. How will you have yours?

Wow, there’s an old three-wheel truck back here. It’s a Mazda K360. Must be over fifty years old!

No, I don’t have a Niedermeyer-spec Toyota bB, but I could.

Our own Tatra found one like this Crown about a year back. I just had to build it;

That concludes today’s tour. Next time, perhaps some Fords? Mopars? Something from Europe? We’ll see!
