Probably not, but I had to see what it looked like.
I’ve decided to give up some of my parts secrets, accumulated/earned over years of hunting and digging. You can’t turn thousands and thousands of diecast cars over in your hands without now and again discovering a small piece that will work really well on another project.
I have lots of these, and I probably won’t get…
Well... it’s been a while LaLD! I hope all are well. :)
I’ve got a big 90 project right around the corner so I thought I’d knock this one out quick. Someone local asked me to build a clone of her sons first car - a pearl white ‘71 Riviera. Dug through my box of crap and found the ‘71 Riviera hunt. I haven’t build…
I guess I never really updated on you all on this project. Shes been done for a while, sitting pretty on display in my living room. I love how this came out, the green is perfect, the details came out well (as long as I don’t zoom to closely haha).
Finally!!! I have been working on this custom for sometime and had to redo is a few times. I finally was able to finish the painting and get it detailed last night. The color I used was Tamiya TS-56. I need to take my Gran Turismo F1 GTR home and compare the colors. Over all I am happy with the result, I need to get…
The interior piece and the new window pieces are still jockeying for position, but it will all work out. The wheels have taken a beating during the process, but I have another set.
I have another of the windows from which these were cut, that windshield is looking kind of smudged from all the sanding and shaping and…
I’ve been having fun with Duplicolor metalcast paint lately, so once I opened up a Majorette Vision GT car I had an idea: spray metalcast directly over the factory silver paint for a deep candy red, add some sweet wheels and slam it. Here’s the result!
According to James’ last post, I was eliminated from the S2K contest after the first round. Obviously I’m disappointed as I received an unbelievable amount of praise and support for my work. However, the contest goes on and I was not held in such high esteem by the voters and judges in the contest. I lost fair and…
Like Philip, I made an entry into the S2K Custom Contest. My build theme was a Japanese Police car. It includes operational headlights, taillights, and lightbar. The characters (kanji) on the doors translate to Mie-ken Keisatsu or “Mie (Prefecture) Police”. The AP2 S200 was built in the Mie Prefecture, specifically in…
Yeah I know the title is a stretch but its British and made by craftsmen (& women). Anyway, the most recent release of the One-77 has mind-bogglingly amazing paint. I hope Hotwheels has more of this color coming out because I’ll buy all of them.
In preperation for car week, Im revisiting some old customs to try and add some details, adding rubber wheels, decals that I have, and the like.
I know the title is a stretch, but I just had some spare time for some quick pics of what I’m working on. It’s cold out so trying to clear some stuff off my workbench so I can get to rebuilding some old Honda carbs for my summer project bike.
And it’s a sheet of glass! Thought I’d try it out. Cell phone pics to follow:
Here’s some current project progress. After a great conversation with Herr Quattro over IG earlier, I ended up getting some pictures of what’s on my bench at the moment. Here’s a quick recap.
I have 5 356s in my collection. The middle 3 have been featured here before, but the other 2 are pretty cool.
Just pictures of some progress.
So, I’ve been buried at work, haven’t been home during the daylight in a couple weeks and today was no exception. Except I found the greenlight gas station set and got excited. So I made it work.
