The Toyota Corporation owns many, many things. From shares in well known brands including Subaru, Daihatsu, Isuzu, Mazda, Suzuki, Yamaha and Panasonic, to telecommunications, housing, steel manufacture, and even broadcasting networks.
Since the 1960s they’ve also invested in trucks, via Japanese commercial vehicle and engine maker Hino, and now wholly own the company.
This is one of the brand’s products from those early years, the Hino HE, as constructed beautifully in Model Team scale by TLCB newcomer TsungNing Lee.
Featuring working steering, a tilting cab, opening doors, a superbly detailed chassis, and some really inventive parts choices to recreate the HE’s curvy shape, TsungNing’s Hino is well worth a closer look, and you can do just that via their ‘HINO HE’ album on Flickr.
