S.L.A.B.... Slow, Low, and ... Bratwurst?!
This was my first conversion/custom diecast project in the 1/64 range and a whole lot of fun.
I threw some new tips on the Audi RS6 last night, and I thought I’d pass those tips on to you guys, too.
Every time I go to Target, I see the Galaxy Express with Mad Manga and the Vault Roller (?) badass fantasy carriers. As I already have two of each color of the Galaxy Express, I hold both colors of the Vault Roller, waiting for a good reason to NOT bring them home for my Mad Max/Death Race/anime fantasies.
This is my first post, so I’ll start with a self introduction. I’m a recent college grad now living in New York, where good diecast finds are few and far between. I usually build plastic models, but I’ve lately been getting back into the wonderful world of diecasts.
I don’t know if anyone was aware (I wasn’t, until an article came across my google news feed) that Make: Magazine is holding a custom hot wheels contest, but they are, and you have until November 30th to submit a build.
Probably not, but I had to see what it looked like.
Something something fried eggs....been seeing a lot of 996 around these parts and I definitely approve. I see many hating on them sadly and it’s probably my favorite 911. Well to keep the love going...here’s a Matchbox 996 Turbo I had chrome plated a while back by @ant_hws on IG. I also added monoblock wheels, lowered…
Okay guys, I hope you are ready for a long one. I tallied up all the 356 coupes in my collection last night and came to 26. This includes the stock ones, ones I’ve customized myself, and ones others have customized for me. This does not include the 8 or 9 I’ve customized and sent to new and loving homes. But suffice…
Sorry guys, just three photos today for the Tuesday LaLD Rennsport as I didn’t have time yesterday, but see it as a preview to tomorrow’s post. :D
So yesterday I showed a test run limited to 2mm and 2.5mm washers plus hand-cut sequins. I stopped by the home improvement store last night to pick up some more sizes, got to work, and now have some finished products to share.
A little over a week ago, Philip and I were going back and forth on how to get really cheap and easy disc brakes for customs. Among the ideas for cutting a clean hole in some sequins, Philip also suggested metal washers instead. And voila, thanks Philip!
What a great month this is. Next week Porsche Rennsport week, and this week we have three of the most extreme Porsches as well, the 917, 918, and 919.
Maybe cheating but I’ll just call this a 1969 Porsche 912 with a 911 engine in it for today. Works, right??
You mostly know him as one of the LaLD OGs, co-founder of #Team118, or simply as Sn210. He works almost exclusively in 1:18, but knowing he could use a challenge, we teamed up for a 1:64 photoshoot. And by “teamed up” I mean that I gave him two cars to shoot and he did literally all the work.
Pearl-white 356 + tear drop camper = instand getaway! I mean, what more do you need? The camper even has a stove in the back.
I think Noodles can see into my soul. He knows what I lust over. I got home late at night and in the mail was this beauty! What a friggin awesome custom! Is Noodles a surgeon? The tailights were painted with such precision.
I found the new DeLorean release and I had to share it’s pure brilliance. I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen/owned one of the BTTF models in the past, or that odd livery red one that came out last year. But now there’s a new color!
As soon as I saw the April 5th story on Petrolicious about a 1972 Porsche 911T-turned-911ST, I knew I had to build it in 1/64 scale. And I finally finished it!
