My local flea market is closed for the season. Needing a fix, we went to one further away that I’ve had mixed results with. I found an interstingly random HAWL this time.
My Target sees this here and there, often enough for me to notice. Today I recorded this egregious activity.
My workspace is a wreck... my diorama is a wreck... my garage is a wreck (and cold). Ah well, here’s a MIF Monday for ya! Fiat 850 Sport that will get a restomod somday.
Yeah, nah, that’s not a Hummer, it’s a “Kohkidohsha” - Japanese for High Mobility Vehicle. Developed by Toyota as a private venture, this military machine is based around components of the Toyota Mega Cruiser civilian heavy-duty off-road vehicle which was sold exclusively in Japan.
Before Car Culture, Hot Wheels had issued some cool premium classic cars from years ago under the Ultra Hots series. On my 183rd post I will show one of those that I dug out from storage.
All told, this bunch costs about Php2300.00. It’s not even the full contents of my wishlist, and they’re all discounted (as indicated).
Good evening, and thanks for joining me.
my son would like permission to be an author of LALD. (Jumping off my couch, throwing the phone down, and raising my right hand)... “He will supervised at all times when writing and taking pictures... And he will only use my phone, which I found is the most kid friendly way to navigate kinja. If this is not allowed we…

Here’s what I’ve done so far over the last day.
Secret Super emails have been sent!
A few of my recent diecasts I acquired on my journeys around the world to far off exotic places. Nah...just kidding. eBay.
Lesney Matchbox time is here again. The last Matchbox review featured a boat, here is the car I pictured towing it. Today we examine Lesney Matchbox 57b, the Chevrolet Impala. This casting entered the range in early 1961, remaining until early 1966, and is a real classic:
高速星団車TakaRanger, as shown here, is the Super Sentai team that I managed to come up with using the Tomica I have. I need a black and white Ranger that can complement these five. Would the Evora GTE and Camaro ZL1 suffice?
If you cant make it to K-Day, but still want to participate, you can order the cases online. A much better experience than having to deal with the mess of the store event imo. If you want one though, you better hurry. These go quick!
I usually don’t do posts like this, but I got so excited that I had to share these here. And since Scott’s title was so perfect, I had to copy that as well. To hell with original content.
Kit building can be addictive, and rewarding, and painful at times.

#16 - Lamborghini Urus, And if you haven’t anything nice to say... Oh wait, there is something nice here. That awesomely awful rear door handle of the actual awfully ugly car is carefully recreated here. Meh.
