Have a great weekend!
... not if it is human hair on Hot Wheels.
I finally obtained a $uper Treasure Hunt version of the new Ford GT two weeks ago. While the Spectraflame blue looks awesome-it even looks like purple depending on the lighting conditions-the grey interior piece that forms part of the exterior is not so good. The grey Halibrand-style real riders also look bland.…
Is there no better toy for young kids (or adults) than Lego? That was a rhetorical question, of course—there isn’t. Until you step on one with bare feet. Now you can build two legendary Ford race cars, the iconic GT40 and current GT, without going broke!
A review was originally planned for the HW 2017 Ford GT. But subsequent mods and schoolwork made it impossible at this time. Instead, I present you all the Ford GTs by HW and MBX (except for the Lesney GT40 and the circa-2004 casting of the GT40)
What else to do on a rainy Saturday evening but to work on diecast?
... As if the GT-40 was not patriotic enough, here it is wearing the Stars and Stripes proudly!
...on a sea of diecasts.
Happy Thursday on the Thames, everyone!
Considering information from StingrayJake, AlienProbe, jedimario, Camshaft Chris: Skyline Fanboy - Now with more Panther! and with some help from Auto World... I present the GT40 that was actually featured on Car and Driver - June 1965.
Before the second semester starts, the redline-wheeled car was finished. The body paint had to be recoated, as it suffered from scratches on the front fenders and right rear fender.
Some GT40s welcoming their long-lost and quirky sister, the Transit Supervan. Such a smashing cast!
For Whatever Wednesday, I will be entering one of the Crown Jewels of my GT-40 collection: the Amon/McLaren Le Mans winner, done by Del Prado.
Finally time to showcase this Ford GT40 Mk II driven by Ken Miles/Dennis Hulme to 2nd place in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is a regular release by Kyosho from the “USA Sportscar Collection”.
This GT40 has the package abit rough and cut up had a sticker of 5.86 for a vette...scanned the back and it said 4.50....i went ahead and peeled off that stupid 5.86 and paid 4.50...the acrylic casing doesnt lock...annd its cracked side not fully broken but starred
AKA, the Amon/McLaren 1966 Le Mans winner. Out of the box it had fantastic paint. Sadly it had meh-looking wheels and a plastic base. Which does not fit the car at all.
Interior replacement (from white to grey), base swap (chrome to black), and a wheelswap (from a Boo Berry Mig Rig). Now it looks better than the original!
To celebrate this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, and Ford’s announcement of its return to the Circuit de la Sarthe, here is the Ken Miles/Denis Hulme Ford GT-40 (2nd place, 1966) in 1:18 and 1:64.
The big one is from Shelby Collectibles, while the two little ones are made by Kyosho.
Hope you enjoy!
Just this Ford GT-40, which I picked up at school, and DLMed immediately. Enjoy!
