Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Today I had a little time to make minor modifications to some pending projects.

First up is this Yatming Chevy Stepside, which was made in Hong Kong. It was given to me by my Uncle, who found it in a thrift shop. The front axle was collapsed and the tailgate was missing. I fixed the axle hours ago.

What is cool about this Yatming is that the chrome plastic grille is a separate piece from the metal base. Question now is, should I retain the patina, or repaint it?

Next is this Tomica No. F20, a 1:60 replica of a Volkswagen Beetle. Overall in good shape except for the big chip on the windshield. Does anyone know how to fix it?

In addition, HW Porsche 917 wheels were perfect replacements for the bent Tomicas.

Last is this HW Ferrari F355 Challenge. I intended to reprint it plain red by applying a layer of white paint as base, but the white paint was bad so it was removed. Those 5 spoke wheels were from an old Maisto Porsche Boxster. The fronts are too wide for the car, so the metal chassis has to be narrowed in the future.

Have a great day everyone!
