Testing out my new Pixel 2 with some Beetles. I understand Philipilihp is doing the same, Beetle photo battle! My old LG suffered the Bootloop of Death, and I had a mind to just get a flip phone and forget phone smartiness and interwebbing, but didn’t want to give up toy car pictures. Or real car pictures. Or kid…
I ordered this bad boy exactly a month ago from Amazon on a whim. It was through the Amazon Marketplace from a seller in Japan, so this purchase did not come with tracking, just a delivery window of April 20 - May 7. I then kinda forgot about it, but it finally came! Whoo!
I don’t remember the blister looking this bad. Oh well. Lets get this Targa outta there.
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.
How do you know a company is serious about racing? When they double up on the name. Rennsport Rennwagen (motorsport racecar). Hell yeah.
Legendary. Red. Flat-12. 4.9 liters. Fuel injected. Dry sumped. Normally aspirated. 600 bhp. 563 Nm. Fiberglass. Tube frame. 220 mph(!!). Porsche.
Sorry guys, I’m going with the obvious choice here. And I’m even reusing photos as I have not had any time this weekend to take new ones.
This was a previous build, but it fits pretty perfectly in what the custom contest theme is, so I’ll throw it in the ring.
Forced, get it? Like the induction!
Well, really it came in the mail yesterday, but still on time for Teutonic Tuesday.
I made these last week. I’m still working on my freehand and detailing. I also made a mistake with the stances and ride height, but, oh, well... I hope you enjoy:)
Tonight Lloyd, Ryan and I will be recording another episode of Live and Let Diecast: The Podcast. Our guest will be Patrick Strong of Model Citizen. Some discussion points will be about Model Citizen, of course, but also about AutoCult Models and much, much, more.
First time doing a 993. Simple wheel swap and details. I did a couple others, too. More pics to come, next week:) Cheers!
When I showed it last week during Car Week I didn’t have much time to write proper words to accompany this awesome car or take the photos it deserves. But what better day to try to make up for that than Teutonic Tuesday?
Just one photo of this one. I wasn’t convinced, when I first saw pictures. When I was handed a couple by my buddy, they looked really good irl(:
The year: 1974. The race: British Airways 1000KM at Brands Hatch. Drivers: Gijs van Lennep and Herbert Müller. Car: 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo 2.1.
