LALD ENGINE WEEK 2018 - OCHO CILINDROS LALD ENGINE WEEK 2018 - OCHO CILINDROS

A reproduction of a very cool casting in 1:64 scale from Hot Wheels, The Snake. I remember one of my cousins had one of these way back when, one of the original issue models. I bought this reproduction back in the late 90s/early 2000s (I don’t recall exactly when). I love the paint job/paint color and the wonderful…

Trying to get this one under the wire, (it’s 11:41pm on Sunday here).

I have this puppy in dark blue as well, but this yellow beast really caught my eye (I think the black hood is supposed to add 15 mph to the top speed...)

A family shot for the final day of LALD Car Week, a Wolfsburg reunion in 1:64 (ish) scale . I’m a huge fan of air-cooled Volkswagens, such simple beasts that always put a smile on my face :)

`69 Ford Torino Talladega - 1:64 scale by Hot Wheels. This is a casting that doesn’t look good in all colors, in black it does, specially with the orange and gray bits. No more Fix Or Repair Daily, more like Flaunt or Ride Daily, I could imagine myself driving this down the street, windows down, blasting “Paint it…

LALD CAR WEEK 2018 - SILVER... LALD CAR WEEK 2018 - SILVER...

This little beast is a Deluxe Collection Porsche 911 Turbo in 1:64 scale from Majorette, it’s been in my collection for over a decade, the details on this guy are amazing, I simply love the contrast of the black bits against the silver paint and the classic shape of a rolling work of art :)

This little guy has been in my collection for a long time, this 1:64 scale little insect holds a special place in my collection because it was one of the first models I bought when I moved to the U.S., it has been mildly modified with a lowered stance, shaved front and back bumpers, tinted windows, bare-metal…

The fast and furious Chaparrals are some of my favorite race cars. I had a hectic Monday so this post comes in very late from the West Coast of the USA, here it is, for you consideration, a white-knuckle inducing Chaparral 2D from Hot Wheels in 1:64 scale.

LALD CAR WEEK 2018 - RED BITS AND PIECES AND THE WHOLE HOLY CANOLI. LALD CAR WEEK 2018 - RED BITS AND PIECES AND THE WHOLE HOLY CANOLI.

Ferrari 330 P4 in classic Ferrari red. This is a Joeuf Evolution 1:43 scale model, with beautiful details. I was very lucky to find this model at a model train store for a ridiculous price, I’m not a big collector of models in this scale, but I just couldn’t leave this beast behind, it’s gotten beat up over the years…

FRENCH FRIDAY FRENCH FRIDAY

Alpine Gran Turismo Vision Concept by Majorette, a nice little beast :) The tampos are very nice.

THURSDAY ON THE THAMES... THURSDAY ON THE THAMES...

Lotus Evora by Matchbox. I really dig the headlight tampos on this one, I will probably detail the taillights when I get a chance.

MIURA MONDAY MIURA MONDAY

Lamborghini Miura from the Best of the World series by Matchbox. Cool casting, great tampos and beautifully finished model.

BMW i3 BMW i3

The i3 by Matchbox. One of the ugliest BMW cars ever made, I lowered it a little bit by bending the axles, beauty is is the eye of the beer holder :)
