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.
Everyone loves Lego, right? Of course you do; you’re not some kind of monster. I’m sure that anyone who’s ever built a Lego car has wondered, at least in passing, say, wouldn’t it be great if I could just build a real car out of Lego? Just in case the weight and cost calculations didn’t wise you up about why that…
Tomica’s latest TLV Porsche 911S sure is great and a lot of us seem to have gotten it. We’ve all seen those recent posts on it. I got it as well and it’s my second TLV 911S, as I did get the yellow one over two years ago. What I don’t get however, is why those Minichamps64s in fact never really catched on.
No teasers for me. Just Tomica Limited Vintage goodness. These two came out last month or thereabouts and are superb. On the left is a Honda Prelude XX and on the right is a Porsche 911S.
So to start getting into the spirit, I took out my old friend, the Gozzy Kremer Racing Porsche 935 K3 that DNF’d in the 1980 version of Le Mans.
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.
Last month I completed this pair of Tomica Porsches 911 (991) for Ziggurat Stardust as a birthday present for his father. They are meant to mimic his Lava Orange 1:1.
Sorry for the double post, but wanted to share this as well. I nabbed this from the fleabay for less than a Tooney! Even taking into account exchange rate. No, I’m also not Canadian but I go there for work sometimes so and I can’t help but smile when talking about the crazy things you kanucks call your currency.
I was going to wait until Tuesday, but what the hell, it’s Friday! Have some silver topless Porsches!
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!
First of all THANK YOU PLASTICPRINTS for making this comparison happen in the first place. Thanks to you I finally know what it feels like to own a TLV.
A few 934s for today, then! I think I’m missing a blue Falken livery. Maybe I’ll find it somewhere, sooner or later;)
Here is the requested close-up of my modified wide-five wheels.
This is just a mock up, but I attached the cowling yesterday and thought it looked pretty good so I thought I’d show the progress!
I only found out this morning that it was 550 Spyder day, so I quickly grabbed the only model of it that I own, a 1:64 Maisto with terrible wheels that look like they are wooden wagon wheels, and took some photos in my car on the way to work.
I had other Teutonic plans for today but when I saw R32Rennsport’s announcement it’s 550 Spyder Day today I decided to skip the initial idea and tag along. A little throwback.
I finally added some detailing to this beauty. I like her much more now.
The Outlaw-iest of my custom 356s! I have to still finalize the stance, after all this time, but I love the look of this ratty Outlaw.
