Shop-teacher apparently has a mind-control ray trained on my house, because he makes me buy stuff, both from him and from eBay. Last week, he posted his '56 Nomad delivery, a casting that I did not previously know existed, so I promptly bought one. That arrived on Monday, so this week, I thought I'd break out all my Nomads.
Some of these have been featured on LaLD before, some have not.
In chronological order, we start with the '54 Corvette Nomad concept.
This is a JL casting, and I feel like the front is not quite right, but it's the only 1:64 casting of this car that I'm aware of.
Mmm, brown wagon.
Next is the '55 Nomad, aka Classic Nomad, which has been released approximately 5 million times in various versions. This version sports an opening hood, RR's and JC Whitney livery.
The newest addition, the '56 Nomad delivery, has a different deco than shop-teacher's, with nice metalflake brownish burgundy paint (I'm sitting here staring at this thing and not quite sure what color to call it - probably doesn't help that I'm ever so slightly colorblind).
The last two are both '57 Nomads, one for hauling the family, the other for hauling ass. These are both from the HW 100% series and are some of the nicest 1:64 cars that I have. Although I purchased them both loose at different times, these could actually be purchased together in one package.
Highly detailed engine bay (I believe the engine/radiator is an entirely separate piece from everything else):
The love even extends to the underside:
And you saw this 2 weeks ago, but here it is again:
Finally, some side-by-side shots just for fun. I love how the HW designers turned the family car into a drag strip monster.
Happy Wednesday, everybody!
