One more of the Hako. I can’t get enough of this thing.

NISMOnday: ToyCon Skyline NISMOnday: ToyCon Skyline

I decided to play around with the light tent a little more tonight. I’ve been staring at this ToyCon M2 Skyline on my shelf for a while and finally decided I had to let him free. Viva la DLM!!!! All of these were shot and edited on my phone this time though. No fancy DSLR. I think they turned out pretty well, if I do…

On my 109th post is another beautiful Skyline. But not just another Skyline but was based on a Hakosuka owned by one Roy De Guzman whose kaido racer graphics, a livery he created himself became popular during it’s first appearance in JCCS (Japanese Classic Car Show) in 2015.

This was the highlight of my storage HAWL last week. Sure it’s a little cartoonie but the brilliant purple and the simple tampos make up for it. Its really a shame Muscle Machines aren’t around still. They made some interesting diecast. Plenty more will be seen from this HAWL but for now enjoy this lovely Hakosuka.

If you’ve ever read my full screenname, you’ll know I’m a big Nissan guy. So when M2 announced their Auto-Japan series, obviously I go excited. I don’t normally collect M2, so this was a nice way to add some to my collection.

I was really excited to have found some of the M2 JDM and here’s a look at our 2nd model for my 87th post.

Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. Continuing the history of the Skyline in celebration of their 60th anniversary this year, it would be incomplete if I did not show you the most iconic image of the Hakosuka so my 72nd post is the often seen Skyline model in its white racing…

Happy Veterans day. Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. Continuing the history of the Skyline in celebration of their 60th anniversary this year, my 71st post is about the C10 known as Hakosuka.

How small can you go? How small can you go?

Picked this little gem last week from a nearby Japanese Surplus store. Unfortunately I have no information about it, except that it is part of a 9-car series of a “Japanese Excellent Car Collection” by ”Lawson Limited” featuring cars from the ‘60s to the ‘90s.

Very little work was done here: filling the grille with black paint, painting the trim and mirrors (although this is hard to see), and redoing the taillights. The Halibrands on this are temporary, as I plan to get real riders steelies instead.

This Hakosuka is a remarkable casting from Matchbox. Surely, it will also be a sought-after piece, it being a classic Japanese car. But, there are other reasons why this car is desirable.

Matchbox’s first foray into the world of Japanese Domestic Market-cars gave us collectors this Hakosuka-or “Box(y) Skyline”. Finally, I found one yesterday!

Cool little ride, I like the wheels and the license plate, 1971, that was a very good year :)
