#Makeitmicro Monday

Alfa Romeo TZ2 in 1:100 by Kyosho.

It even fits sideways.

The wheel in the back window is nice.

I’m digging this tiny car.

Here’s the giant shipping crate it came in.

I kinda want a Sportwagon and a 75.

Thanks to dek34 for finding me the #makeitfit.

It only holds a Kool Kombi right now. I'm trying to change that. If I make it long enough to hold a wagon... It’s too darn long. The bug is a little shorter. It still looks silly. I’ll find something that works. Off topic but I got an eBay package that was actually boxed up correctly. Great looking cards. But,...

Mail call 1970-something Citroen CX Mail call 1970-something Citroen CX

I’m gonna start with the package. No one here would ever send a car in an envelope. We’re box people. But, I was pleasantly surprised with a little hand made box inside. I’m so glad the paint didn’t get scratched in shipping. I didn’t feel like it was worthy of breaking out the light box. Because it’s such a nice...

The 1985 Air Rover 90 The 1985 Air Rover 90

One of the biggest British blunders in Automotive design. The brainchild of professor Nigel Fartybutt. It never actually left the ground. Poor Nigel never got to see Farty Rover fly. Mostly because it’s shaped like a loaf of bread. With a drag coefficient of next to nothing.Wait I’m holding this chart upside down. It is in fact a loaf of...

And now for something completely different. And now for something completely different.

I’ve been waiting for an id car that I wanted. I really just wanted one but couldn’t pull the trigger on a car I didn’t want/have. Looks like I forgot to crop that last photo. I kinda like the larger rear wheel. I normally don’t like it when Hot Wheels enlarges the rears. Not bad though. It is 90's day...

2000s: No, not that one 2000s: No, not that one

Yes, yes, it doesn’t have the pop culture cachet of its track-only twin. But it’s the same car, street legal bodywork and added creature comforts asides. This 1/43 Kyosho M3 GTR is certainly no slouch in the looks department regardless. It’s also a fair bit more rigid than the backdrop, but the lightbox collapsing onto the latter repeatedly was...

LaLD Car Week: A 5tep Above the Rest LaLD Car Week: A 5tep Above the Rest

For my first ever LaLD Car Week entry, I’d like to start off this week with one of my favorite 10s model: my Kyosho 1/18 BMW 540i M-Sport (G30) in Sophisto Grey. I’ve shown this car before, but I had the opportunity of taking these pictures at Florida State University in Tallahassee a few months ago and figured I’d save...

Rising Sun Mail Call, Plus Kyosho Goodness Rising Sun Mail Call, Plus Kyosho Goodness

Last week I put in a low-ish bid on a Kyosho Lancia Delta that had free shipping from a seller in Japan. On Saturday, to my suprise, I snagged it for about $13 shipped (these tend to go for $20-25 shipped) maybe because white is not the most popular color? Eh I don’t know, and I don’t care. To my...

I feel like a fried dog turd today. Here’s a picture of the current contents of my Micro Machines display case. What strikes your fancy for future features?Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s nearly 8pm local time, and I’m going to bed. The end of the quarter is Wednesday, so staying home tomorrow is not an option. ...

Unexpected Arrival Unexpected Arrival

This lovely Museum Collection Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R showed up on my door step today. I would wager that this is a Secret Super gift. Well done who ever you are! I’ve had this on my watch list for far to long. IMO the green livery is the best livery. This was immediately liberated from its cube and photographed and...

Micro Mini 356 speedster I’m not sure how this little guy survived my childhood but I’m glad it did. I found it in the bottom of a box of gi joe parts that I’m sure were blown apart when I was old enough for fireworks.

Micro Monday: a Datsun truck Micro Monday: a Datsun truck

I didn’t get a chance to take any Micro Monday pictures until just now. Sorry it’s so late!Anyways, the Datsun truck is one of the earliest Micro Machines. I believe it was the first pickup truck in their line. They made a lot of different versions (one of these days I’ll pull them all together for a mega-Datsun truck post!),...

Tonight we’ve got a ‘78 Pontiac Trans-Am, Bandit edition. I got this in a trade with Vdubyajohn. It’s pretty freaking great. Shame it has the big tab-butt, but thems the breaks. Here it is with my Smokey and the Bandit set from Greenlight, which I also got in a trade with LtotheG. For any you youngins who may have not...

Micro Monday: micro micro edition Micro Monday: micro micro edition

Life and such got in the way of me posting any Micro Monday content the previous two weeks. So, to make up for it, here’s a whole lot of micro. I got this set of Micro Machines micro cars in a HWEP with frosted. It came with the five cars in back as well. Here they all are up close,...
