Printable Diorama!

Printable Diorama!

As many of you may know, I had the opportunity to go to the Rolex Reunion with Michelin during Monterey Car Week a few years ago. It was a mind-blowing experience with the greatest vintage racecars around.

Well, that trip inspired me to work on creating this diorama. It was a complicated build that took me more than a year to complete satisfactorily. I’ve modeled these pit garages on those...

Cool Classics

Cool Classics

My walmart is currently stocked up on Cool Classics. I picked up these:
Ford GT • '69 Mustang Boss 302 • '65 Volkswagen Fastback.

I'm not totally sure if I'll keep them all. I'm not a VW guy, but this one is pretty sweet. I may be willing to trade for the right vehicles.

Pictures from the internet.

Ferrari Friday-crashing

Lamborghini has been shaking up Ferrari for a while. Why should it be any different here?

I really like the blue Polizia version (with great wheels), but my favorite Gallardo is definitely the Superleggera. This thing is so beautiful! I wish I'd picked up the other colors.

Happily, I found one of these today, along with about 50 007 Aston Martin DBS’s. It was the only one in the store, buried in the dump bin.

Kyosho / Displays / Diorama idea

Kyosho / Displays / Diorama idea

For those who don't frequent the Lamley blog, he just shared some images from a die cast store down in Brazil, Curitiba Customs.

Their display is unreal, and you would all enjoy looking through their pictures. You may also get some ideas for your own collections. Stellar presentation.

Throwback Th.

Throwback Th.

I've had these Vipers since my early teen years. The Viper was my all-time favorite car back then, preferably an original GTS Coupe in blue with white stripes. There was no other option.

I don't have them with me at work, so I'm guessing here. I believe the Blue GTS Coupe is a Maisto, as is the GTS-R, and possibly the Silver GTS, though it has better wheels. I can't remember what the RT/10 is....

Many of you who don't frequent Cars and Coffee Central might be interested in seeing this car, so I thought I'd share it to Oppo.

And here's the full album on flickr:

It was a bitter cold morning to be up so early standing around in a parking lot. Well worth it…

Do you have a fix for scratched windows?

Do you have a fix for scratched windows?

I picked up the Gulf McLaren F1 GTR this weekend but didn’t notice the deep scratch in the windshield until I opened it. Is there a fix for this, or would the easiest solution be to drill it and swap the windows with the mainline version?

I'm alive, and still diecasting!

I'm alive, and still diecasting!

Howdy all! It’s been just over 11 months since I’ve posted any diecast. Crazy! My collecting has slowed down, and so has the photography and diorama building. But that’s what I wanted to share today, my most recent car diorama. I built this one over Christmas and promptly took it to work. So the only photos I have are from my phone. Sorry about that!

I’ve posted a couple of my CM rally...

So what's up with MoonEyes?

So what's up with MoonEyes?

I've seen that it's a super TH this year, and also a regular mainline van. But why is it so popular? Frankly, not knowing anything about it, I think it's kind of ugly. So why does everyone want it? Please enlighten me, though I doubt it will change my opinion on its looks.

I love this green Celica!
And notice the weird bump on the rear corner of my wagon. Strange, eh?

1/64 Aston Martin DBR1 by Shelby Collectibles

I’m just reusing images I posted earlier this year. Sorry about that! I haven’t had time to do anything new for this.

This is a beautiful little car. Proportions look great, it’s well-detailed, and has beautiful paint. Both doors open, as does the bonnet. I apologize that there is no engine shot!

I love this little race car! The color is spectacular...

Not necessarily the Trans-Am stuff you were picturing TE71 Xin, but it's the best I could do.
