I hit up a local Walmart tonight, hoping they’d have a 180sx or some newer casts, but that search left me empty handed. However, they did have a new shipment of matchbox, so I picked up some. Maybe too much...
I got all of the Dodge Charger persuit cars, because I’m a sucker for cool cop cars. I also got a Tacoma and a Ford Raptor, because why not. Sorry to anyone who wanted a persuit car!
Also, if anyone has been wondering, the Evo project isnt quite done. I didn’t like how the old ones bay looked uneven, so I bought another one and carved the hood out of that one. The pic below is with the old body on it, the new one has fresh primer on it and is drying.
I also got the wheels sorted out, along with a piece I’ll use for an engine.
See that tool box?
It’ll do nicely...
Along with finding a piece for the engine, I’ve also decided to add a front splitter, which I got from a 24/7, and will be painted what ever color the car is.
(It’s the grey piece ;))
Also one more thought about the Evo... The livery on the car was based off of this car, an Infiniti G37...
...so why did HW decide to put the livery on an Evo, instead of their G37 cast?
While a bit small, it’s still a nice cast, and I haven’t seen it around in a long while... The world will never know the mystery of the misplaced livery I guess.
And here’s a Civic Si that I repainted from an ugly purple to a nice green, in case you didn’t like the above content. :)
