I had a bit of a mail call this week. I’m really impressed by the Charger Daytonas from Ertl and their opening trunk feature. Anyway, this fed my muscle car appetite... for now;) Oh, and I made a shovel, too:D I wanna start making some more things in 1/64 scale. I’ve always been fascinated with miniatures.
Just a harmless little fish called a Barracuda :D
Many weeks ago, news of the release of the next Car Culture probably got most of us excited. Lamley reported it appearing in Target and Walmart. People posting pictures of their finds. But as for me I never expect it to be the beginning of one long struggle.
Found all these nice shiny things at Walmart a couple of days ago! I was afraid I wouldn’t get that purple Skyline. I had to look through 5 smaller dump bins before I found one buried.
A pair of Acuri
We have some great guests lined up, but they are upcoming, so Ryan, Lloyd, and I are going to record an episode tonight. We’d love your questions. Our topics are going to be:
It’s been a busy day, and I almost forgot to post a pic. So here’s my last minute improv!
So it turns out I only have one 510 handy.
Just a few of my favorite Hot Wheels 510s on this May 10th!
Another one on the Hot Wheel Ride On series, the castings are designed to allow Lego minifigs to sit in/on/hold on from them. I have 4 others of these, this one isn’t too bad.
I don’t remember the blister looking this bad. Oh well. Lets get this Targa outta there.
These are finally hitting Walgreens and I was able to get my hands on a camaro, which is the only one that interests me. I love the color on this one and had to crack it open. I am debating if I want to drill it and do a wheel swap to some old school five-spokes. Let me know what you all think.
A new brand joins my collection, and it’s a good one! This is Neo Scale Models’ 1/64 Lincoln Continental Mark V. It’s a sealed resin model in true 1/64, so it’s quite large but also quite light.
It’s about time I posted something on Teutonic Tuesday again, so here is the latest custom I’ve completed, a Porsche 964 with a sunroof, in dark grey.
Let’s try this again. Hopefully Kinja won’t eat my pictures. Here are my first attempts at taking decent pics using a light tent. I can already see I need to work on my zoom/focus to make more of the car visible and not blurry. And the edits might be a bit much with the saturation and brightness, but I like bright and…
Just some test images using my new light tent. These are all unedited, so bear with me. I’ll do some editing tonight and hopefully make them look a little better.
I’m not big on complete customizations/taking apart models, repainting, shaping and modifying them, what I do are minor enhancements, like painting certain parts, stripping paint from other to make the metal stand out or lowering stances by simply bending metal axles.
I got the Gran Turismo McLaren F1 yesterday and already drilled it. Changed out the wheels, painted the spoiler and removed a few tampos. I’m really happy with the outcome and the wherl figment, once I get a new dry erase marker I will remove the rest of the tampos.
A couple weeks ago I just happened to be searching the bay and came across a guy selling cars from the new yet to be released Gran Turismo set. All I really wanted was the McLaren F1 so I stayed up late to win a few. Well I got them in the mail today and they look awesome. The first thing is that they went back to the…
Kowalski got two upgrades this past week, and that leaves me with one more thing to add. Here’s how it looks, for now. I’m no diorama expert. It’s a WIP, but I hope you like it!:)
