M2 Machines unveils it’s latest 1/24 scale Datsun 510. I wish they would stop making me want these larger scale models.

I've said it before, and the rule continues.  I am ALL IN on M2 Machines Auto-Japan.  As space for my collection keeps dwindling, I have to be very specific in what I collect.  And with M2's prolific output, I need to be extra picky.

I opened the M2 Machines Auto-Japan models (Chases too), and they are even better.

There are two questions that come up with M2, and they have definitely come my way with the new Auto-Japan series: How do they compare with other small scale models size-wise?
