I started this build a long time ago (April of 2016, to be exact), as a second attempt to make a bumperless DB5. The last one turned out nice, but the gap between the base and the body bothered me. Here is the reworked version.

This has got to be THE best HW casting in recent memory.
Pretty nice casting of the DB10 from Aston Martin by Hot Wheels, it’s a nice companion to the Silver James Bond DB5 from Hot Wheels I have in my collection. I love the details and the tampos, specially the tampos on the hood.
Well isn’t this pretty...
It has a color! Whoo! A very nice copper, if I say so myself! It looks a lot more brown in this light, but I promise that it’s very coppery.
I now have a display cabinet. That cabinet has plenty of empty space. There is a desire to fill said space with items of the 1:18 variety.
Sorry guys, I couldn’t come up with a snazzy headline, but here are some WIP Aston Martin DB5s!
As of right now I don’t have an airbrush, so my painting techniques are limited. But sometimes it’s not that bad, and it turns out as I hoped!
Here is one of the great surprises from Jobjoris; a Norev Mercedes-Benz W 196 R Stromlinie. As you can see, it perfectly complements my transporter and now my 300 SL has some company!
This was my first time attending the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Hopefully it won’t be my last!
Many pictures, few words.
Hello LaLD. I really like how people do the custom cars here. I wanted to try my own using the items I have in my makeup studio.
The famous Aston Martin DB5 from the 007 film franchise. The big car is a re-issue of the Corgi casting which has been done a few times throughout the years,it has a few working features as shown in the films, the front machine guns/battering rams, the back window metal shield, ejector seat and tire slashers, sadly,…
Here for Thursday on the Thames is the Aston Martin V12 Vantage by Welly.
Quicky custom time! Here is an Aston DB5, in the best color yet: graphite grey metallic. This car in 1:1 looks so great without its bumpers, I had to make one.
Today is Thursday on the Thames. And what is the big city on the Thames? London. And what is headquartered in London? MI6. And who is part of MI6? Bond. James Bond.
