Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment: The Punisher Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment: The Punisher

Along with the couple JL casts I grabbed yesterday, a newer Retro Entertainment series seems to have debuted. There were a dozen Ghost Rider Dodge Chargers which, I guess if you like GR that’s cool, but I found the cast to be ugly and have no real love for ghost rider. The Punisher, however, might be the only “super…

Saw these at Walmart and had to grab them. I like the Demo derby series a lot and the Project car Camaro was different.

Here’s some garbage.

Kyosho BMW E91 Touring Kyosho BMW E91 Touring

Hi my name is pillarless coupe and im a big dumb dummy-I mean this is the E90-91 generation BMW 3 series wagon by Kyosho. The model sports 4 opening doors with no ugly dogleg hinges. The hood opens to reveal a N52 straight six and the trunk opens as well (although the tailgate won’t stay open likely because of its…

1/43 Lincoln Town Car Landau Hearse 1/43 Lincoln Town Car Landau Hearse

Here’s a GLM model that I’ve had for a few months now but have been too afraid to DLM it. My other 2 1/43 scale hearses have gradually deteriorated after being removed from their packages (one I fear I’ll need to replace but it’s a costly model) I took this out after noticing it was screwed on too tightly which caused…

BoS 1966 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser BoS 1966 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser

I’ve had this model for a while now but never got around to taking pics mainly because I’m not too thrilled with it. The front end looks good but the sides and the rear are very flat with no real window trim, just flat tampos to denote where the trim would be.

Used HW Lot Used HW Lot

I have a ton of HW and MBX cars sitting in a tin. I’d really like them to go to a better home. Ive split them into 18 lots of 5 cars. If you see a car you want, call out the lot and number its placed in (from left to right, 1-5 so if you want the second car from the right, say Lot 14 Car 4.) 50 cents per car plus…

1/18 Volvo V60 1/18 Volvo V60

I shouldn’t be buying models but a killer deal came up on this Volvo V60 and with ebay bucks AND a 15% off coupon, I couldn’t pass this up. It goes nicely with my Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series touring. 

Best Of Show Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Best Of Show Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

I’ve been waiting for this model for about a year now. Pillarless Coupe shared pics of this model lacking white wall tires and I knew it would be a must have. Diecast Society reshared it at the beginning of the year with white striped tires and I began checking weekly. Of course the week of my townhouse closing…

Crack it Open Crack it Open

Friend of the blog and podcast guest Andy Hawker sent me a regular TH that I’ve mildly wanted for while now: So Plowed. Even though it’s fantasy I really adore this casting.

Location Scouting II: Chevy Nova  Location Scouting II: Chevy Nova 

Tried again this evening with less direct sunlight. And a not black car (black cars are hardest to shoot imo)

Location Scouting... Location Scouting...

With the new place means I’ll need a new spot to shoot. Because I didn’t uproot the stump. I should do that. Anyway, my mini patio is decent because I still get a good amount of natural light but shooting a black car was not the best car to start with. This was one of my last 2 acquisitions before moving, a BMW 3…

...but I found this while cleaning out my old bedroom. Stashed under my bed for probably a decade and still mostly assembled. Brought to the new house and put the last few pieces on.

The Model Room is coming together The Model Room is coming together

Got my desk set up with station wagons and a bonus Maybach Pullman (still need to set up shelving units for the limos and some other oddball things).

First Display is up... First Display is up...

Ive been absent from LaLD for an exciting reason. My waifu and I bought a townhouse. Its a decent little unit but it was built in 1991 and is pretty much all original so the past few weeks have been spent painting and updating but yesterday the guest bedroom (aka model room) got fresh paint so I brought my old…

Liberated Supers (Discussion) Liberated Supers (Discussion)

These 3 Super THs were gifted to me at various points during my time with LaLD and to me, I couldn’t sell a gift that holds substantial value. I occasionally troll eBay super TH postings (I’d like to find the 8Crate, Nova Wagon and RS6) to see how various Supers have risen or fallen in value. I searched the 510 wagon…
