Have a great weekend!
There are only a few castings I really try to get all editions of, but the foremost of them is really the Hot Wheels Porsche 911 (997) GT2. And in honor of a recent addition, here is the full lineup as I have it right now.
Another well know movie this time with 3 getaway cars. The original 1969 movie stars Michael Caine and 3 Mini Coopers. The 2003 remake with Mark Wahlberg uses 3 modern Mini Coopers with extensive chase scenes. My take on this is to use Italian cars with 3 Fiats instead and maybe call it “The Real Italian Job”. Godere.
Such a pain to detail, but it was all worth it. Black paint was applied on the bumper, window trim, mirrors and vents. The base was also painted black. My orange paint was horrible, hence the turn signals turned out badly. Will fix that soon, too.
Have the 1933 Ford Low-Boy from HotWheels in my collection for a while. The look is nice, but it wasn`t cool enough. I decided to paint the beige parts in a flat black and detailed the front and rearlights. It looked way better, but it seemed that something is missing..... so i built a quick and dirty version of a…
Holy crap, I NEED to do this. How is this not a Car Culture release? It’s amazing beyond belief. <3
It’s perfect. Absolutely perfect. I need it. Now.

Not my favourite colour choice for a Lotus Esprit, but I guess it works...?
So I was cruising eBay the other night and spotted a few redlines I really liked — namely the orange McLaren M6A.
....or is it a modified diecast?
Got this beautiful HotWheels NSX yesterday and I think this colour fits perfect. I am not that ricer-fan, but this one is stunning. So i tried a few things with a new backdrop and with the Prisma-filter as well. I can`t decide if the “normal” or the “Prisma-picture” looks better.... Enjoy it!
I’m definitely done for a while. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. Hope you enjoy the eye candy...
Cut down a mulberry tree this week, so now I have a stump. All the cool kids are taking pictures of their diecast on stumps (at least, I’ve seen a few here and there), so here’s this sweet HW livery Baja Bug I got from dtg11 a while back (thanks dude!).
Some collectors strictly collect a certain brand, scale, or even make/model, but I like to collect every thing 1/64th scale — including carrying cases, accessories, retail displays, tracks and playsets. I don’t know how many of you collect or even buy playsets, but it’s hard to have thousands of cars sitting around…
I like big butts and I cannot lie, but not when they’re ten feet wide... *Edit* The rapper must be angry right now because I had an idea for this Fatbax Mustang that goes against everything he stood for.

I don’t normally pay attention to errors, but these two jumped out at me. They are definitely new on card, from the factory this way. And most oddly to me, the car colors match the card art!
If there is one truth I’ve found to be universal in life, it’s that for F1 cars, much like birds, three in the hand is better than a full grid on the track.
