Yerp....it's true, Tamiyafier has finally sorted out his cache of photos taken in Shizuoka. Because there're 60 odd photos, I will try to upload around 5-8 photos a day. Enjoy!

The way there was a tad rocky, as we tried taking the bus....which had no English translations of the destinations written ANYWHERE.

First sight:

Entrance...complete with koi pond. Shweet.

And what lay inside? It's The Bug Box Scorcher! This was really quite amazing to see. Can't believe I got to see it in person! Built in Germany, this thing is quite a stunner. The level of detail is just awesome....

A collection of older F-1 cars that Tamiya keeps for reference.
You can even see the kit box of the F-103 version of the Lotus at the bottom-left corner of the photo...
Behind is an old Honda (?), a Honda Life Step Van ( again, ?) and a Porsche 914, I believe.

The famed Tyrell P34:

That's all for today, folks! Many more to come.

Thats SCHWEET!!!
We do have a lot in common- The same earth, the same air, the same sky... maybe if we started looking at what's the same rather than what's different... well who knows.

Errr.....no. They used to have a full scale Doraemon solar car and a full scale Mini 4WD though.
