First Hwep in a long while

A while ago (like a few months or more I think ) dtg mentioned he was looking for a specific casting in a specific color. I didn’t think much of it but every time I went diecast hunting, I had his request in the back of my brain. It wasn’t until I found it on clearance that I grabbed it and offered it to him for a hwep.

Honestly, I had no idea what I wanted in return; I was really just keeping an eye out for a fellow diecast enthusiast. I requested pink cars (for my kid), but he had none to trade; which is understandable. We then just agreed on a random box of goodies. Boy did he deliver!

First up is the 1/24 Welly Shelby! It looks gorgeous and will definitely stay on the shelf diorama. Ztp junior kidnapped this casting and started crashing it. “Please don’t crash daddy’s car, it’s special to him.” :p.

Next is the GL International flatbed. I really like this one because the color scheme is neutral, at least when compared to a gulf livery or NYC stuff on it. I’ll definitely be using this one.

This 1/18 Maisto ‘71 Datsun 240z is actually my first ever 1/18! Dtg couldn’t of selected a better car, nor in a better color; I love orange! I’m currently brainstorming a diorama for this. It’s literally calling my name.

Some loose cars as well. I found the Red Baron car funny as I’m 90% sure it was Dtg that I talked to about me being one of the few lalders to not have a Red Baron casting, and that I’ll just assume he’s holding onto mine, :).

Cars for the kids. Dtg, you did spectacular good. Junior kept saying “this is my favorite color!” And then asked me to open it for her. She wanted the pink ones, the white ones, then the yellows, then silver, etc. It was a long list, :).

Thanks Dtg! You over delivered, and I’m really grateful! I hope you enjoy your casting as well!
