To celebrate here is a quick and dirty custom E30 M3 for a Teutonic Tuesday!
Sorry everyone, I’m not ignoring you. Didn’t get to die casting this weekend, had family to attend to and was working on the 1:1 Volvo project. I’ll review the lists and send out emails tonight so we can finalize trades.
Same rules apply here as in the previous post. If you missed it it’s about 4 posts down on the main page. These are all loose cars, previous post is carded cars.
Cleaning out my coffers of wheel donors and general hoarding before I visit the Target returns desk.
I’m really loving some of these 1:24 scale VWs that M2 is putting out lately. This one was already fairly modded out of the box with it’s color matched bumpers and somber two tone. It came riding on gold American Racing 5 spokes but I thought a set of Fuchs would dress it up nicely with a slight drop to match. Wanted…
Following up to Plasticprints post. I don’t collect M2s but I do like the Hako Skyline and Type 2 buses so I have a couple that I like. Had to adjust the height on these but overall stellar little casts.
I thought I’d fire up the photo booth and share one of my favorites. The sadly one and done Hot Wheels Mk2 Audi TTS from the Speed Machines line up. Why this was never put into the mainline baffles me.
To recognize that today at Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb, yes that was also today, that the overall record set just a few years ago by Sebastian Loeb and Puegot was shattered by Romain Dumas and Volkswagen Motorsport in an all electric Unlimited Class vehicle. Ladies and Gents we have a new 7 minute club!…
The poster car of the late 80s/early 90s. The Ferrari F40. If a Lamborghini Diablo wasn’t hanging on your wall then this most likely was.
Iconic car. Iconic livery. Le Mans is upon us.
Another R32rennsport exclusive, proper photography to follow. I love taking cheaper, entry level 1:18s and kicking them up a notch and this one turned out particularly well with relatively little effort.
Might be too good of a deal to last but if anyone is interested this seems like a decent price for a reasonably hard model to come across.
And all this BMW shenanigans for a little Thursday on the Thames project announcement.
UT Models 993 GT2 in 1:18
Haven’t had much luck lately in hunting. I did pick up these 1:24 M2s for my Snap On friend tonight though. Pretty cool but he collects 510s so I’m passing them along.
One more grail/hunt piece checked off the list. Hot Wheels Ferrari 156 in the very rare Belgian Grand Prix yellow, only available in the 2002 International Ferrari 5 pack. I’ve literally been on the hunt for this one for years. This mint loose one came up on Ebay.uk last month for a steal!
Sometimes perusing Craigslist pays off. In this instance it netted me a brand new UT Models 993 GT2 for a whopping $10 from an obscure thrift store in the next town over. You read that right, it’s not missing a zero.
I’ve been absent the last few days, lots going on over here. I will throw this last one in the ring as my wildcard from back in 2016. Though not a popular cast to work with I really enjoyed the frustrating challenge of masking compound curves. If you look close enough those really are Shell decals on the axle ends!
The original Porsche GT2. The epitome of automotive design and mechanical perfection combined? It’s debatable but in my opinion Porsche checked all the right boxes on this one.
