PICKING THE COLLECTIVE LaLD BRAIN... PICKING THE COLLECTIVE LaLD BRAIN...

I picked up a few beat up old Matchbox/Lesney castings over the weekend. I usually keep them as they are if they haven’t been painted on by brush with nail polish or the like, I have grown very fond of the chipped paint and imperfections on them.

CUSTOM IDEA...

Just throwing a little custom idea for the master customizers we have in this wonderful community (My apologies if I’m breaking the rules by not posting pictures of die cast models)...

LATEST FINDS - PICTURE HEAVY LATEST FINDS - PICTURE HEAVY

A few of my latest finds staged on my Gulf gas station plus a couple of experiments in adding an intercooler to a couple of nice castings from Hot Wheels. I also stripped the VW T2 again, not sure yet if I will leave it as is, or maybe add some wooden stakes to the bed.

VARIETY PACK!!!!! VARIETY PACK!!!!!

I hadn’t posted in a while, I’ve been pretty busy with work, plus I didn’t have my camera. This is a long post that includes a few of my finds during the past few days, a custom I finished and a “restoration” I’m about to finish. Cleaning the paint out of the crevices of the Jeep Gladiator is truly a pain in the butt.

I went to a nearby antique fair this past Sunday and I picked up this little guy (among some other die-cast items). When I was a kid I had the same casting but in a beautiful metallic green color. The stance is not the greatest on this guy, but you could say is rally-ready.

WORK IN PROGRESS... WORK IN PROGRESS...

I decided to try my hand at a mild custom, even ventured to take a car apart (I haven’t done that in quite some time). I picked up the ‘70 Chevelle SS Wagon in an interesting livery, kind of a demolition derby theme going on. Not too thrilled with the red tires, but they will have to do. As of now, I’ve only…

RIDE ON... RIDE ON...

Another one on the Hot Wheel Ride On series, the castings are designed to allow Lego minifigs to sit in/on/hold on from them. I have 4 others of these, this one isn’t too bad.

MARTES DE MAZDA... MARTES DE MAZDA...

The Mazda Repu by Hot Wheels. Nice casting with a lot of details. I really like the tampos on this puppy, specially the taillights and script on the back.

A little experiment... A little experiment...

I’m not big on complete customizations/taking apart models, repainting, shaping and modifying them, what I do are minor enhancements, like painting certain parts, stripping paint from other to make the metal stand out or lowering stances by simply bending metal axles.

Busy day at the station... Busy day at the station...

A few old models I had plus new finds, a nice blue Corvette, the Honda City and the speed detector thing are new to my collection.
