This will be a quicky. I want to say a public thanks to Noodles for this RAOK package of Speedeez Corvettes. I love these silly little things!
Shopgoodwill.com isn’t very good at packaging diecast. About 50 carded diecast were thrown in 2 plastic bags. Then stuffed in a box. I love an excuse to DLM.
Mr Moneybags bought a house in the Hollywood hills. Needs some work though. The contractor is over to put on a new garage roof and chimney. The back fence needs to be replaced as well.
I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been bat-crap-crazy-pants busy with remodeling my kitchen, training for a new class I have to teach next year, and also some fun things too.
By request of Noodles (I think), is this really cool knock-off Micro Machine of a VW Schwimmwagen. Thanks to Vdubyajohn for IDing what it was for us.
A quick Micro Monday before bedtime. This one came from the RAOK batch from Pixel last week, featured by request of FryGuy. It’s a knock off Micro Machine, but a decent one, of a ‘59 Caddy.
A while back Pixel mentioned that he had some Micro Machines and 1:144 Racing Champions that had previously been glued to (I think) a car dashboard, and he wondered if I would want them. Loving all things tiny diecast, I said yes of course. Tonight, while trying to figure out what I should do for Micro Monday, I found…
A thousand internet’s to whoever gets that reference.
Ok, so there isn’t really that much special about my CarWeek edition of Micro Monday. I do think this Fiero is a stellar example of what Micro Machines could be. It’s well proportioned, well detailed, and has a clean stock like paint scheme.
Have Datsun. This 720 casting was nearly ubiquitous as the truck of early Micro Machines. It’s a great casting, and I love this tidy 2-tone well detailed version.
Because why not?
What goes better with a Monday, than tiny cars and a hot cup of coffee? Nothing, that’s what!
Last month Nate13 requested to see this Micro Machine. It’s a Chevy LUV with a drop in camper, from the Super Micro Lights series. The headlights, taillights, and camper windows should light up when you press down on it. They don’t anymore, however. Still a really cool model though!
Today we have another 1:144 Racing Champions. This Dodge Ram is period perfect street truckin’. Gotta love it!
This 1:144 scale Racing Champions Matco funny car is from my massive Secret Super gift. It was in a beat up card, so I liberated it. I have maybe a dozen or so of these little guys from Racing Champions, and they’re really nice pieces. They’re well detailed and we’ll proportioned. I wish they’d bring them back. I…
This is such an early Micro Monday, that it’s not even Monday in my time zone yet. I can’t sleep though, so let’s just do this thing now.
A couple weeks ago, I took some requests for Micro Monday. Herr Quatrro wanted to see the German stripe van. This is one of the first Micro Machines I got, meaning I’ve had it for around about 30 years now. It’s a great casting of a 70's Dodge van, and I love this paint job.
It’s been a while. Time to get back on the horse. I just want to apologize up front, because a lot of this pictures are bad. The camera on my new phone positively sucks, and I didn’t have time to go re-shoot this with my old iPhone.
Well, it took me precisely zero days to break my diecast resolution of not missing any Micro Mondays. Quite frankly, I forgot it was Monday. Between winter break and the extreme cold temperatures, I’ve barely left the house in the last week and a half. First world problem, I reckon. Anyways, I figured it out at…
