The mail call is a bit more of a rarity these days in my household. Bills, mortgage, food. Day to day life means the diecast collecting (especially for the more expensive brands) is sporadic at the very best. But sometimes I have a little bit left over to treat myself and given Tomica just released one of my favourite Kei trucks of all time, I decided now was a good time.
You may recall seeing this in my earlier post on the Schuco BMW Isetta, where I had used this in a comparison with the German "bubble car" and vintage Kei trucks from Tomica. Given it's such a cool little car, I thought it's about time it gets space for itself, and given that it's the only R360 in this scale, the new Single File feature is a perfect platform.
I've been looking forward to finally getting a Majorette into my writing. And what a place to start.

February 17, 2020 - by Doug Breithaupt The overwhelming lack of comments on my last Road Champs contribution to the Lamley Group should have probably convinced me to change the subject for this week. However, since it is not possible to have any less response and I’m enjoying this subject, I’ll press my luck. It …
