Big things with little cars

Teutonic Tuesday: Zum Fledermaus Wagen!

There I complain all the time it’s hard to get HW’s and MBX’s over here in the Netherlands. And yet I’ve found a lot of the HW’s I wanted actually. The entire BMW series. The entire Gran Turismo series. The Escort RS. Just the Outlaw was impossible to find. And the Japan Historics/Euro Styles. Last weekend though I stumbled upon...

The CSL! Way sooner than anticipated. That Z4 underneath it I found in Italy, just after getting the R.S. 01. So it isn’t that bad, just MBX’s are impossible to get. But what I found a bit disappointing was...

The quality of the CSL. You see that paint-chip in the blister already. Those tampos/details are definitely a subject for improvement. Let’s zoom in a bit.

I do get it’s hard to get all those small lines appropriate, especially on small curvy car as this. And I know it’s just a 2-euro (these are 2 euros over here) toy. But this way it’s bound to end up being customized in the first place. Or shoot it on a darker background, maybe that’ll help.

Hmmm... Not really. Okay, strippin’ it is! I’m just afraid it’ll be more than just removing the paint, the cast seems to have some flaws as well.

So a relative short Teutonic Tuesday for me. Still recovering from recovering. I need a holiday. Or next time getting an extra week off. Irgendwie: Tschüss!

P.S. For all European LaLD’ers: Derrick loves the CSL as well...
