Volkswagen Concept W12 by Matchbox
Because it’s no silver bullet! My first 1:1 was a black one, so years ago when I saw MBX made one, I HAD to pick it up. Here it is bone stock on its first safari. I hope you enjoy!
Hi everyone! I know I’m late to the LaLD Car Week 2018. Thought I’d just share pics of the Matchbox Volvo V60 wagon in Rebel Blue (as I don’t have any new acquisitions yet). It’s a nice blue, don’t you think? :)
Sorry to interrupt the Car Week madness! This is just a quick HAWL update before a big vacation that will hopefully involve some major die-cast purchases. That HAWL will definitely need its own post.
First off, a couple of fantastic 1/43s. The Mazda prototype is a Spark and the Inetegra is from a brand called…
Getting my Dr. Seuss on.
Hey, that’s today! :D I hope you are having a great weekend. Here are a couple of trucks. I had to get the Landy out for a test drive.
Lotus Evora by Matchbox. I really dig the headlight tampos on this one, I will probably detail the taillights when I get a chance.
Lamborghini Miura from the Best of the World series by Matchbox. Cool casting, great tampos and beautifully finished model.
Due to some logistical issues, I got behind on receiving some cars I had ordered from a few people. I wanted to wait to get them before doing a HAWL update. Well, I have them now, so here’s the update!
The i3 by Matchbox. One of the ugliest BMW cars ever made, I lowered it a little bit by bending the axles, beauty is is the eye of the beer holder :)
The 2018 Jeep Gladiator from Matchbox. I really dig the paint color on this beast :)
While cruising through the isle of a Wal-Mart the other day it struck me just how many different 1/64th scale cars are out there. The “Hot Wheels isle” is LOADED with cars ranging from the basic .94 cent Hot Wheels line, all the way up to the $6 AutoWorld castings — and everything in between. I noticed that the most…
January seemed to be the time when LaLD’s finest seemed to be on a spring cleaning spree. And I capitalized, gleefully!
It’s been nearly a year, but I previously wrote a bit about a non die-cast segment of my collection- the trading cards that some companies have included with their castings from time to time. In that post, I teased a part two. I know it’s almost been a year since that post, but hey, I said it might be a while!
Just a couple of castings from Matchbox, the Baja Bullet and the Sonora Shredder. The first looks like it could be a modern Toyota Tacoma truck, while the second one could be an older compact (or even full-size) Chevy truck heavily modified, or an older Toyota Hi-Lux (the joys of models designed to avoid paying…
The Audi R8 was Audi’s first traditional road-going supercar, released for the 2007 model year, following concepts such as the Audi Avus Quattro from 1991 and the Le Mans Quattro from 2003.
This haul is a very special haul for me because it gives me the opportunity to showcase a few casts that I’ve been looking all over for, and a few others that deserve to be showcased. It’s a mixture of new and old.
Just a couple of cars from the eBay seller Surplus Goodies. This is my first Tarmac Works! It’s absolutely beautiful and while cages aren’t cool, I left it in for this picture just because it’s so nice. I don’t often comment on a model’s presentation in package, but this one is noteworthy. Don’t worry, you’ll see…
This puppy makes a nice companion to the Matchbox Mercedes Benz news van I already have, too bad it only has the one antenna on the top. Not too crazy about the plastic body, but at least it has a metal base.
