Since car week is all about the visuals, I’m gonna shut up and let the car do the talking. Let’s get it.
Another LaLD Car week, I really loved those in the past. Not sure if I’ll make it the entire week because how on earth am I gonna find a purple car in my collection?
CM’s Rally Subaru. 1/64.
I haven’t installed all the antennas yet. But I will! I just had to shoot something when I pulled it out.
But I can’t read the boxes.
I’ve shown the 964RS from Kyosho’s Porsche Minicar Collection VI before here. But I have a few of series V as well. Those came in more boring colors. Black, silver and white.
Moaaar custom jobs by moi.
Last week I showed a Porsche 908 while I knew Philipilihp was gonna show a 907. And I didn’t have a 907. Or at least: I thought I didn’t. But I was wrong. And that’s a good eye-opener: I have too much casts. Probably.
In the past couple of days I have been going through my Jammer cases trying to bring some organization to my loose 1/64 collection. Previously, they were all kinda randomly thrown in there. At one point, my kitchen island (perks of being single!) was literally full of cars and I figured I would take some pictures. …
As you guys know, I have an irrational love for the International Scout II by Johnny Lightning. The Desktop Rock Crawl Crew (DRCC) is now up to 8 members, and will hopefully continue to expand. My other irrational truck love, though, is for the Toyota FJ. I’m so not a Toyota guy, but I think I’d make an exception for…
Last week I showed a Kyosho rendition on the 993 RS, today we’re seeing a newer generation (997) with a turbo on it from Kyosho as well: The 911 GT2RS.
So, I did a thing... 99.9% done... it rolls... maybe ill try to clean the rims up a bit. I’m considering ONE more thing: a thin racing stripe from the badge down the middle back to almost the end of the roof, in the same orange... What do you guys think? How do you like it?
I know it’s a bit late, but a Happy New Year to everyone here on LaLD :) .Feels good to be back! I have been busy with life stuff and shifting my diecast cars and worktable to my new “Man-cave” or as I prefer to call it my “Die-Cast Cave” which means I can now finally work on my cars in utter solitude (which also…
A little while ago I was lucky enough to get a huge pile of Kyosho 1/64s from the Porsche Minicar Collection IV. And I realize I’ve shown way too little of these little gems.
So, I made my own “Then & Now” and turned them into art cars. I need the practice and I had the sort of Jeff Koons/ Benetton idea, so... why not? I tried to make it a real ACE (All Custom Everything), and I DO MEAN EVERYTHING;)
Where the customer is almost right:) I had a lot of fun getting this started. I’m still hoping to add weathering, dyno and several other things, but, I hope you guys like it!
2017 was the year where my collecting ‘focus’ really spread everywhere - plenty of firsts in both scale and brand joined my collection. Normally, a dramatic increase in variety would be a negative - usually it means your collection has gotten out of hand, but most of these represent the new focuses of my collection…
Here is my 2017 Top-10 acquisitions! I decided it would be more fun to pair purchases with trades, RAOKs, etc., and I’ll start off with one of the best RAOKs from 2017, and probably ever. Another is down later on the list, but this one is more recent, so it comes first. This list is in no particular order, just what I…
Most of us have these two, but I haven’t seen many images of them together. So here they are! They’re a great pairing and would go well together in some multi-millionaire’s garage.
I’ve kept my eyes open for a Bullitt Mustang if I ever chanced upon one. This one was hanging at ToysRUs a week or two ago, so I picked it up. It’s nice, and definitely something I want to have in my collection. This one is from Greenlight.
