My man Witheredcustomz and I are in the middle of a custom-for-custom trade, and his end came in on Friday. There was a TON of amazing RAOK stuff in the box that I will share later, but here are the two customs, because they are insane.
I had a MoonEyes 8Crate laying around when I came across a Bizarro 8Crate with real riders. So a new set of shoes was in order. Enjoy!
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.
Found some goodies at a couple of antique malls. Enjoy!
I finally found the latest batch of FF cars today, and apart from the missing (read; scalped) Johnny Tran Honda S2000, all other cars were present. Including this lovely blue Porsche. It’s also the only one I bought.
Story time (fictionalized for your enjoyment)
Haven’t been hawling much lately for various reasons, but I found some things that pleased me today. Came away with more fantasy cars than licensed cars, but whatever.
It’s all smoke in mirrors, really:p I like to take cool shots on IG of the cars in my collection. It makes it a little more fun to do something different. Since I don’t have the space to make actual dioramas, I have to improvise, for now. Maybe that’s just another way to be creative. The DoD Garage is located…
I finally finished up this little guy! Just a fairly simple strip and repaint job, with new wheels. He was in pretty rough shape. Dinged paint, bent axles, etc. I don’t even remember if this was one I had in my childhood or if I acquired it more recently. It was in need of a full restoration though!
Just a couple of big-box store finds today. Pleased to find the Scorpion and F&F Porsche. Anything in that bright blue color is good in my book!
This little fella from the Hot Wheels Car Culture ‘Air Cooled’ series is so tiny! I absolutely adore it!
SO... I went on another safari, recently. This one was a little shorter than the last one but the post is still kinda image heavy... ok, maybe a few captions:) After this one, I had a few ideas for the next one. I hope you enjoy!
The Lamley Group posted another guest post yesterday by my hand, all in time for French Friday! It’s a bit of a reworked post of one I did over here on LaLD but has additional info/shots I came up with when I found the Highway Patrol R.S.01. I repeat: HIGHWAY PATROL R.S.01! Somebody call the Dubai police forces!
Here is the requested close-up of my modified wide-five wheels.
First, I showed my gold DeLorean. Now, I’d like to show my time machine DMC-12 from the classic movie ‘Back To The Future’.
No, not the Pontiac, although there is a Pontiac Firebird in here. And plenty of Mustangs of course. :D
This is pure 80s excess.
The Baja Hauler by Hot Wheels. Pretty cool off road truck, I put the tiny mini cooper in the back because I thought it looks good in the box. I’m digging the wheels as well. Another cool feature is the off road suspension, pretty cool for a plastic model :)
This is a cool casting by hot wheels. I’m a not big fan of huge wings, but this one looks good on this car. I’m also digging the diffuser in the back. I will have to dig out my GT-40 and do a side by side photo shoot...
The Roller Toaster by Hot Wheels, I’ve been looking for this guy for a while, not a lot of die cast metal on this guy, pretty much just the base and axle...
