Rennsport Reunion: 1/61 Tomica Premium 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Rennsport Reunion: 1/61 Tomica Premium 911 Carrera RS 2.7

The 911 Carrera RS 2.7, particularly this Tomica Premium casting, is probably an oft featured model here at LaLD. And holding the model in hand, I realize that I should not really be surprised. I mean, this is such a beautiful car. And Tomica Premium has done such a great job with it.

One thing I simply love about LaLD is the sharing of the fun we have. After a little cleaning over the weekend, I stumbled upon this very memorable piece of my childhood. And what could be better than sharing the fun with you guys?

Working Wednesday: Construction Crane Working Wednesday: Construction Crane

Back in the day, most 3-inch diecast companies had a crane truck or two in the lineup. Working features in these small trucks were a lot more common. This here is the first crane truck from Tomica: 72-1, the Nissan Diesel UNIC Truck Crane, introduced in 1973.

Travelogue: Food, Cars and Donut 3 + TRU Travelogue: Food, Cars and Donut 3 + TRU

It’s been a while since I posted the sequel on my travelogue so here is the finale. Let’s check this Jeep lookalike vehicle called the Jeepney which is originally based on a customized version of the WW2 military jeep.

Found the Chevy at Target. I hadn’t seen it on the pegs before but it won me over in person. I also saw the Econoline but just couldn’t convince myself to do it. Just.. no.

Today I got to do some stocking at Walmart:

Detailing with Acrylic Paint to Create Shadows and Depth Detailing with Acrylic Paint to Create Shadows and Depth

I’ve only been here for two weeks but I’ve always wanted to share this with the LaLD community. This simple method is my favorite for detailing diecasts and I hope you guys learn to apply it too.

Look What's New  Look What's New 

To me at least. I got a notice and picked up these TLVs.

And now, for the moment I've been waiting for...

Well no, I haven’t got either one of the actual models, but now we;re seeing the Tomica LaFerrari face-to-face with Mattel’s own.

I’ll start off with a spoiler photo before I bore you with a story. These cases have been shared on LaLD before but I haven’t heard of anyone else use them for Tomica boxes.

iHWEP with TE71_Xin iHWEP with TE71_Xin

This iHWEP was months in the making between Xin and I. We began with a chase trade - his Greenlight Mecum Auctions Mopar for my Auto World Ultra Red Lead Sled. From there, we started talking about what was readily available at stores where we live, and why not expand this to include items that were easy for each of us…

Overseas eBay HAWL - The Most Dangerous of HAWLs Overseas eBay HAWL - The Most Dangerous of HAWLs

The last thing a diecast collector should do is visit eBay in the middle of night. It’s simply too tempting. Pretty soon your bank account will read nil and you’ll be tripping over packages of diecasts, all while wondering why you felt the need to add to a collection that virtually fills the spare room already.

HAWL- Tomica! HAWL- Tomica!

Just a few Tomica! The Hino Profia tow truck is pretty decent, but the little dummy Prelude it comes with is very small. It looks better next to the 1/64 TownAce.
