Here is my 2017 Top-10 acquisitions! I decided it would be more fun to pair purchases with trades, RAOKs, etc., and I’ll start off with one of the best RAOKs from 2017, and probably ever. Another is down later on the list, but this one is more recent, so it comes first. This list is in no particular order, just what I…
It’s the whitewalls. How can you NOT be classy while rolling on white walls?
I just finished this shiny black one, and it’s Tuesday, so here are some shots of it!
The 964 Porsche from the Modern Classics collection by Hot Wheels, great color combination, awesome wheels
Here’s my collection of white Porsches! I have a number of others in different colors, but I love seeing all these white ones together.
Flying Lizard Motorsports raced the 911 GT3 RSR in the American Le Mans series with Porsche factory support, with the #45 car featured here winning 3 consecutive drivers championships from 2008-2010 with the team 2 constructors championship in the ALMS series along the way.
Ninth day of the 11th month. Definitely one of my favorite days of the year!
It’s the ninth day of the eleventh month, so post the Porsche 911 diecasts that you have!
A great looking variation of the outlaw 356 Porsche. The wheels look pretty good and the color really makes it stand out (not sure if this is a bluish-green or a greenish-blue, ha ha ha), I still haven’t messed with the stance on this one, I think I will try to get a second one of these to mildly customize detail.
Long time no see, LaLD! Well, that’s not really true. I’ve been checking the site regularly but haven’t posted in a while. But never fear, I’m still around! Anyway, I’ve seen a lot of posts with the new Greenlight buildings lately. I also found a few of these and decided to pick up the STP garage. Not a huge fan of…
Maybe I should have saved this for Tuesday, but I was excited to finish. Pictured below is my teal 964 with camel interior. I posted some WIP on my IG page earlier but now I found some fitting wheels and got it clearcoated. Anyway, on to the picdump.
This is a thank you post to Forgeryfade. He hasn’t been around LaLD lately, but you may remember him from such hits as the Hot Wheels Key, to date LaLD’s most-read post.
I don’t know if you guys are familiar with this car, but the 911 owned by @joshyrobots on Instagram has to be one of my favorite examples of an early 911 out there. It’s so clearly well-used and well-loved that it’s instantly endearing. Plus, it has a killer roof rack.
And he’s very pleased with them. Still a WIP, and I’m still a noob at this (second time ever putting details on diecast) but besides the obvious, they included roll cage, interior, fresh idlers, and rolled down windows:D I hope you enjoy! In the meantime, I’m gonna have to keep practicing, to steady my hand.
Just a couple of Defenders I scored. I’m thinking I need to do another ‘safari’ shoot, soon. Whaddya say?:D
But, it’s for everyone’s viewing pleasure;) I promised a little comparison, so here we go. Tarmac Works and Schuco. Some pretty detailed cars in 1:64 scale. Image heavy!
Thanks philiphilip for explaining HWEP and for this BEAUTY! It turns out I only need the black flake painted one and the Speed Machines variations, and I’ll be caught up. I love this casting!
