First is the HW Collectibles GT-350 in 1/43 scale and it is beautiful! I love the color. I love the year. And I love the details!

Edit image caption (optional)In the back, mounted to the roll cage is a well-detailed fire extinguisher. I might pull this one out to get the bands off of the paint (don’t want that ruined).

Next up is a pair of 1968 Shelby EXP 500 C.S.S. Black Hornets, based on a car that pays tribute to the original Green Hornet.

The Green Hornet served as a test mule by Shelby and his engineers to improve the Shelby Mustangs for the various racing endeavours they would face. The results have spoken and these days, the Shelby name is synonymous with performance and speed. Not too shabby for a chicken rancher.

The Green Hornet is a one-of-a-kind car and is a beauty to see.
