Fake HW Ferraris?

Fake HW Ferraris?

According to an article at T-Hunted (link)... there’s a batch of Laferraris being sold out there. The card looks similar to a HW card... which I think its meant to imitate.

I must say, for a bootleg, this looks good. The wheels look a lot better than the wheels of the 1/64th Bburago Laf, which seems a bit ironic since it is the brand which holds the Ferrari license. The extra...

A pair of fast cars

A pair of fast cars

Picked this up some time ago... they’re from the same brand, Siku, but sporting different car styles and paint schemes. :)

They do have rubber tires... but the wheels and style are not as refined as those of HW’s real riders. The cars themselves are a little larger than 1/64th.... if I were to guess, they’re around 1/55 or something. So looking for a donor car... to make a wheelswap, is...

A red Lykan

A red Lykan

Finally got myself a Lykan Hypersport by Jada. Its bigger than most 1/64's, probably around the same size as most Siku’s? But thats about the only turnoff for me, overall, I think its a good and detailed cast. It has rubber wheels, which surprisingly rolls nicely (for a Jada)... detailed grills at the front and back, and complete tampos. The interior is plain black but its held together by...

A pair of Beetles

A pair of Beetles

Got this pair from a trade. :) Its a little smaller than a 1/64, that is, if a ‘regular’ 1/64 is the size of an MBX or HW. I couldn’t make out the brand name though, its in either Japanese or Chinese, that part was scratched. But looking at the cast, its very detailed and proportionally correct. The headlights are glass (not tampos), and the wheels are rubber. My best guess... that I found in...

The Bronco revisited

The Bronco revisited

With the rumors of Ford bringing back the Bronco heating up (link, link)... I figured I’d pay an old cast a visit.

The old tan-and-black paint scheme looked great... but I wanted to see somethin different. So I took the body off... and gave it a matt black finish. Then I thought, it looked new, “why not give it some weathering?” So I took a fine grained sandpaper... and scratched off some...

A sporty Toyota

One of the nicest cars from Toyota, one that’s known not for its speed, but rather for its excellent handling characteristics - the MR2!

The cast is an old one from HW (pic ).

An Astro Van

An Astro Van

I really miss the Boulevard Series. This van, imo, is one of the more memorable casts from that series. I love the lowered stance, the wheelie bar at the back, the blowers at the front, the wide tires... it just screams “dragster!”.

Film Friday: The Batwing

Film Friday: The Batwing

One of the new vehicles featured in the movie ‘Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice”... this is the ‘Batwing’.

The cast is from the Retro Entertainment series of HW (pic)... its almost totally all-metal in its construction, the only plastic parts are the engines at the back. It comes with its own base (stand)... and is I think a bit more detailed than the version from Mbx.

From some...

A colorful Squareback

A colorful Squareback

Sporting one of the most intricate tampos in recent casts from HW... the Custom 69 Volkswagen Squareback looks great! :)

It had no headlight tampos... I just ‘sharpied’ those in. Then I did the same with the tail lights..:) Also, to have that effect of looking ‘used’ or ‘weathered’, I smudged a little black on the side vents... to bring them out a little.

Christine's Camaro

Christine's Camaro

One of the nicest casts to come out of the Retro Entertainment series from HW recently... the 67 Camaro from the horror movie ‘Christine’ is just brilliant.

Little details like the blacked out grill, the tampos on the tires and tail lights, the silver lining on the windows, all make for a good cast. My markers stayed in storage coz I didn’t need to ‘touch up’ anything on this, it looked...
