It's already Wednesday again and oh what a week we have had. The LALD Facebook page seems to be bustling with all type of posts being made. Themed photo of the day has been drawing some new commenters and they have definitely been bringing their A-game. The blog is also hot with activity and there have been many great posts on a variety of subjects, scales, media, ect. So without further delay, let's get started!
Like last week, I want to start things off with my overall favorite photo for the week. Last week is was a dramatic shot of an Alfa but this week I chose a very fun, very loud shot by Tony Suzta of a Custom Firebird redline covered in paint! These are toys and we must not ever forget that. Take a look!
Do I have you attention now?
Now, I want to get straight into the Facebook POTD winners in all their glory. Themes have been all over the place and everybody is having fun which is what this is all about. Here they are from last week until yesterday.
Wednesday the 18th: theme – black and white – winner – Jonathan
Thursday the 19th: theme – fantasy cars – winner – Philip
Friday the 20th: theme – cop/rescue vehicles – winner – Xin
Monday the 23rd: theme – generations – winner – Muhammad
Tuesday the 24th: theme – 1980's cars – winner – Jeff Simmons
As always, killer shots. I strongly suggest checking it out if you haven't already!
Next up I want to showcase some features from the week on the blog.
Jeff Simmons started a discussion on Redline cars and featured a picture he took of an old Nomad, it just speaks to me as I love Nomads. Be sure to check the comments for other fantastic shots.
Otaconmutasim get his creative juices flowing and actually made a fake Mercedes advertisement using a 1:18 scale SLK55 and a bit time messing with some fonts to create what you see. This easily passes for a real ad. VERY VERY WELL DONE SIR!
Apparently this hobby is addictive (who knew?!) according to Enginerrrrrrr as his eyes have been opened up to the world of 1:18th scale and is now very worried about the state of his finances. Dat 917 tho…..
Up next is a newer commenter on our blog by the name of Skyfire77 and his showcase of some of his custom Transformers. Everything is extremely detailed and well done. Definitely check this out!!
Continuing his showcase of some of the Retro Entertainment cars, TE71Xin brings us the almighty Charger belonging to Dom's father. No explanation needed here.
In a post from Jared East Photography, he gives us a large shot of the engine bay of a scale stockcar. I love the detail this model has!
Monday brought the Mopars as TE71Xin requested. Great theme and always great shots!
In a post by iDSi_guy, he give us an amazing shot of a group of Nissans with the Calsonic GTR taking center stage. Check it out!
Lastly, I want to end with a shot by Denver_80222 of a Fiat 500. Just a downright cool shot. He is also suggesting that OPPO and LALD be friends…I think that is a possibility ;)
So, that is it for this week, look out next Wednesday as I know it will be great as well. As always, last week is here
