Busy schedule for Tomytec in the upcoming months :
The late 80′s E30 was popular in Japan despite the fact that only left-hand drive was available.
Seibu Keisatsu #13 Nissan Cedric 230 & 330 unmarked patrol cars set
Another nice addition for the fans of the Seibu Keisatsu show. The Cedric 330 was featured in a car chase in the episode ‘Machinegun Rhapsody’ aired in November 1979. The 330 was a brand new model at the time, so the production team decided to use an older Cedric 230 as stunt double to destroy at the end of the chase. Both cars are included in this set and have the same license plate since they are supposed to be the same car.
LV-79c Nissan Bluebird SOHGO Security / LV-144a Nissan Bluebird Nissan Service
