Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. On my 58th post is a small but great looking black Käfer from Greenlight.
Sunday my partner and I made it to the diecast show I posted about last week. It wasn’t huge, but there was a nice variety of vendors, as well as the hosting store’s own stock.
The Torque Truck and the SP4 will be trading wheels. Due to axle length, I just put them where they fit for now.
AHey guys! Finally i got access to my account! I miss posting here at LALD! What’s up? Here’s a 1/24 S13 build for all of you to enjoy!
Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed your collective weekends!

I’ll be posting some photos over on Oppo from The Mitty! I had a blast down at Road Atlanta on Friday watching the vintage racing. Great stuff! Anyway, check out the first post here:
Guys, I came across something you may like. Do you know about the Kinder Surprise eggs? I found something way cooler, directly from Japan. The Furuta Choco Eggs.
Once in a while I’m hugely intrigued by the scaled engines by CMC. They’re 1/18, come on a nice wooden stand and share a lot of detail. It’s just that they’re, well, expensive. 125 Euros for a Bugatti 57SC engine. On Ebay often even more is asked.
Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. Have you ever resisted getting a model since it is not something that you truly desire or collect but yet made you change your mind? For my 57th post, this is how it came about.
This week’s edition of Lost Diecast is Corgi’s Kojak’s Buick sedan diecast. If you watch the series Kojak, Telly Savalas’ main vehicle is the Buick Century but the diecast model is the Buick Regal. The front end is different.
Test fit, held there by blue tape. Not such a good job of holding, but you get the idea. I may cut up another 934.5 and do it again taking what I’ve learned so far into consideration. I think I can get a tighter fit.
I recently acquired my third Kyosho 1/43. All three of my models are from “The Circuit Wolf”. This has become my grail series to collect. I obsessively check eBay for this series and when this on popped up I had to jump on it. Here is the Nissan Fairlady 240 ZG.
It’s gorgeous outside right now in Southern Vermont. We hopped in the billion mile Xb and did a quick grocery store run. Thankfully, the trip took us close to some of my favorite antique mall haunts.
Today I took my daughter to her first silver screen experience: the latest movie on il Puffi, the Smurfs. The Lost Village. Had a lot of fun doing so and I thought I’d take a small Italian diecast with me to shoot in front of the screen for Spaghetti Sunday. Epic fail. My phone couldn’t handle the backlight, whatever…
Made from a few old Monster Jam trucks, a couple of Road Champs monster truck wheels and tires, and some paper clips for the grille, I give you Grave Digger #2
In regards to The Bell King’s post I shared, Greenlight isn’t actually releasing a GT40. A later update said that it’s the new GT done in GT40 liveries. I wanted to clear that up just to be safe.

Today’s swap meet journey was largely uneventful, save for a few randoms.
Tomica time again, also Land of the Rising Sun-day. Today we examine a car that represents the era. This is Tomica 13-4, the Nissan Cedric 280E Brougham. This casting entered the range in July 1980, and remained until February 1984. This piece shows many Tomica qualities of this period:
