HAUL: Tomica TK exclusive Truck

HAUL: Tomica TK exclusive Truck

Toy Kingdom is one of the toy stores here in the Philippines, found only in a certain chain of malls. Luckily for us, Tomica made a bespoke model for the store. Luckily for me, I snagged one just today!

[WIP] HW Jaaaaaag XJ40

[WIP] HW Jaaaaaag XJ40

This is one of the ex-Corgi castings Hotwheels released in the 1990s. Awesome cast, with the front and rear detailed out of the blister. This particular car donated its mesh wheels to a CSL.

In the works are lowering the ride height (as pictured) and painting the interior. Maybe after November :)

Enjoy!

Also, Happy Mother’s Day to our awesome moms!

The Grani & Partners Cinqué with the Motormax C12. The latter is slightly bigger than the 1:64 G&P Zonda.

Altered Ego

Altered Ego

This is from the Real Riders series released a few years ago. Its name is a word play of its Class of dragsters. Per wikipedia, “altereds were essentially stock gas, alcohol, or fuel-class cars with parts removed or changed. The Altered category originated “for cars with moderate changes”, according to the rulebook. It developed from out of the Hot Roadster, Fuel Coupé, and Fuel Sedan...

Too much work and errands to participate in ROTB. Maybe next time, I’ll set them free!

Here is a 1:64 Dydo/Kyosho Ferrari 250 GT SWB I tried restoring some months ago, wearing a day-appropriate color.

Have a great day ahead!

... never finished. It is always a work in progress.

I have a question, guys. Do the mesh rims fit the GT-40? While they look nice, I’m bothered by the fact that the real cars never used them, as the style was far in the future.

What do you think?

Thank you!

AutoArt Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec II: Hello again, LaLD

AutoArt Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec II: Hello again, LaLD

For the past year or so, I have been just lurking around LaLD. Let us change that with this 1/18 Tuned R32 GT-R by AutoArt.

At HKD 980 (US$ 124.90 or 6,583.88 Philippine Pesos), this is the most expensive model in my collection. The details and quality, however, justify this price.

What do you think, LaLD?

Thank you and have a great day!

Edit: Kyosho 1:64 Ferrari 512M. Just about right for Radcast, methinks.

Why u hate me, kinja?

Why u hate me, kinja?

Was supposed to review this car, but kinja kept crashing on me (around 5x already). Alas, I have to study for this week’s classes. Too bad; I have to postpone it until the weekend.

Teutonic (Engine) Tuesday: Too late for Engine Week

Here is a Pagani Zonda Roadster Cinqué in 1:64 by Grani & Partners. A detailed casting of a lovely car; if you have an opportunity to get one, please do so. I have been waiting for so long for a proper 1:64 model of the Zonda, and this one does not disappoint.

My only complaints are, first, the red stripe on the intake is off center. Second, the Mercedes-AMG seems to depict that from the...

Two of the hottest new cars, masterfully done in 1:64 by Tomica.

Which one would you have?

As for me, I know my priorities:

Have a great day everyone!

I’m quite busy at the moment, so all I have is this potato pic. Hope you are not tired seeing GT40s (this time the Amon/McLaren car) yet again. At left is HW’s Auto Milestones, at the right is Del Prado’s 1:43 version.

No time for even simple mods due to schoolwork, so here are (again) my GT-40's in the meantime.
Hooray for real riders!

[Review] Kyosho Beads Nissan Skyline GT-R

[Review] Kyosho Beads Nissan Skyline GT-R <BNR32>

Not a toy, ladies and gentlemen, but an accurate scale model. Let us see if it walks the talk, then. (And let’s see if Kinja will be kind to me this time).

Packaging: The Beads Collection is the premium line of Kyosho, and it shows on the packaging. The regular releases come in a blind box (you don’t know the exact model you are going to get), which yields a 1:64 casting attached to a base and...

[Custom] Hybrid HW Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera 

[Custom] Hybrid HW Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera 

This was RAOKed to a sister of my friend, who had a 2GB SanDisk flash drive. The flash drive was small enough that the V10 need not be removed; thus it is now both petrol and electric-powered!

Hope you like it!
