(pics) A couple of seldom seen EBBRO 1/24 Diecasts
EBBRO did not make very many 1/24 models but the quality control and the fit of opening parts makes these 'Premium Collection' models quite special.
Their castings were typically thinner wall than many other diecast manufacturers making the opening various panels look more realistic in my opinion.

The first is a right hand drive Fairlady ZL (modified and marketed by Nissan in NA as a Datsun 240Z) This Japanese version avoids the silly hubcaps used on the export versions.
The second is a Toyota 2000GT...another Japanese marketed limited edition sports car of the late '60s. I first remember seeing one displayed in the Japanese Pavilion at EXPO'67 in Montreal.
