Modeling Tokyo taxi cabs
Here's a comparsion of the 3 different models. The TomyTec taxis have all the same great detail of their other recent vehicles.
Both TomyTec and Kato taxis even had green license plates like the taxis do in Tokyo. The TomyTec taxis all came with the same rooftop lantern but the Kato set came with a variety of lanterns as separate parts.
So now I have the beginnings of a Tokyo taxi fleet. During the subway construction period I model there was no proper taxi stand at Musashi-Koyama station. A short distance from the station the taxis would line up along the street.
