Miniature car ornaments?

Yeah okay.. These aren't ornaments but they're like Hot Wheels except its from a better company. I have successfully tested them in water, there is no 'strange' substance of coat layering on top or paint flaking. And yes with my choice I have chosen a few that have smooth edges and not sharp ones.

Heres an example

The company is called "Takara Tomy" ~ this is their product line called "Tomica"

Hm, just thought I would present Nomi something that moved him to his new home.

Wow! you're brave! I would be afraid something would leach out of them. Let us know how it goes.

Brave? nope just curious and sometimes smart. With the right thing you could accomplish anything. Just remember to test it before doing it.

I'll try to soak them again just to see.

Have you considered painting it with some marine sealant? Just incase?

I had to file down a few ornaments and the smell was insanely awful. I painted those bits over with sealant and wham bam thankyou ma'am. No problems.

I collect Takara Tomys. They are a great brand and feature fantasy cars from movies and games that are gorgeous.

With that said... I don't really think their products are safer than hot wheels (which i collect as well).

A word of advice, some of these cars have metal parts and screws that rust overtime. Not a good thing to have in an aquarium/fish tank.

There are plenty of ruined/intact car ornaments. I'm sure that you could find a well made one, somewhere!

I don't think there will EVER be, unless you want to make it yourself which would just end up... Cardboard n plastic and.. Color paint all messed up over a car-looking box.

What about those plastic model toy cars that were made to be assembled together with thinner (or also known as thin cement in scale modeling) Yes, I am a modeler but stuck at a point I can't even open up the box and fix the scale model. Search/Google this : 1/72 scale model cars

It could be put together with this "cement" (not really cement but acts like it) The cement is the part where I think is kind of poisonous in water??? I don't really know. But aquarium sealant could be a switch (not so sure either..) You don't have to paint the model but if you want to you should spray a coat of something to keep it from flaking.
