Trying to do a racing game style in this picture. I think it turns out pretty good. Gotta share it here.
Found the VW MOMO livery so naturally I had to dabble a bit with a few mods.
I received my order from Japan a few weeks ago and on my 177th post for DLM 1/64th or smaller models the first one is a set of racing cars.
Due to recent cost cutting Hot Wheels had to down size it’s “The Heavyweights” line into “The Lightweights”
It’s almost that time of year again. The time where we all try to ignore our extended families by investing way too much time in the Griswolds and binging on A Christmas Story. Oh yea and that whole secret super deal!
Everyone knows the tale of the BMW 507, BMW’s sexy little roadster of the 1950s that took the jet set by storm, to the point that even the King himself owned one. It was a design and legacy that always firmed itself into the history of our favorite Bavarian brand, with only a few concepts from the company holding that…
Tomica time, Land of the Rising Sun-day, is here once again. Today we examine a model that had been on my list, and is now in the hoard. This is Tomica 3-1, the Toyota Crown Super Deluxe. This casting entered the range in September 1970, remaining until October 1974, and is a nice example of the early days of Tomica:
I’m surprised this casting hasn’t been featured yet on LaLD. After sending one off to Doctor Suarez a while ago, we were able to confirm a little something I suspected all along on Friday. I immediately went out to buy one of these the next morning because I just have to have one for myself. Because it’s amazing.
I was wondering about all of the manufacturers who make the “premium” type cars. Tarmac works, TLV(N), Kyosho, etc. So which is the best car for the price? I know the Tomica’s can go for about $30 usd and they make very good quality cars. And I have heard alot about the Tarmac works cars. Dek34 mentioned something…
Today we have a selection of Tomica Police cars - two new ones, including one ofvthe brand new Tomica 4D models - with sound and vibrations! But let’s start with an oldie - the Toyota Corona 2000GT Hardtop.
Hot Wheels Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. What a beauty. And what an underused casting...!
As usual, I went diecast hunting at the collectibles show this morning since I can’t shop on Wednesdays anymore due to traffic. This is what I ended up with today
This is the HW Greenbrier custom. This is the only version that does not have a ridiculous deco. The other two are a snoopy version and a nestle version. I love the casting but hate the sponsorship on them. I know the tampos used to be easy to remove and have read a lot about the process but from what I can tell the…
Those who follow my posts know I have a thing for unusual cars, and especially amphicars. The evolution of this has been to start looking at boats and the two below have been on the list for a long time. The only way I could find them was on Ebay and ultimately I bit the bullet and go them. They have a special spot in…
..with the delivery man. OK, I know, super lame but they are super nice. I think they may be the heaviest 1:64 I own, they feel like a brick. They are a nice addition to my dream halloween Blown delivery aka ‘Graveyard Shift’.
I got this guy off Ebay. Shout out to romkee2006 for the amazing custom paint job. Just a killer combo in my opinion when you contrast the acid green with metallic black. The A1oo lends itself so well to any customizing because of the large surface area. It is the only one in my collection but I suspect a couple more…
Just thought I’d stop by and say hello! I haven’t had any time to hunt, recently, but I DID find a few of the new Car Culture pieces. I definitely need the Bel Air Gasser.
New series specifically focused on Ferrari.
Remember all those Norevs I posted that a couple weeks ago that Diecastmodelswholesale.com had on closeout?
