Not only the beauty of the model, but also the differences in variations are a must-see!

Therefore, variations such as differences in letters, designs, and colors that are created depending on the time and place of manufacture are also posted. Welding, bolts, the thickness of sheet metal, etc. are full of charm of being a “thing”.
