In other news, I still can’t afford to go. But enough about me, we’re all waiting to see what news comes for 2019, and when to expect some of the stuff they’d announced during the 2017 Gathering. :)

Today is 18/7, post your 1:87 casts!

Radcast: Silvia Turbo Radcast: Silvia Turbo

Pop-up headlights, angular shape, Turbo graphics, and a red interior. All are hallmarks of the 1980s, and this cast has them all.

Radcast: 白 Radcast: 白

It’s fairly surprising that there haven’t been any more 90s Skyline GT-R castings shown over Radcast Weekend.

Working Wednesday: Capable Car Carrier Working Wednesday: Capable Car Carrier

Since there’s no Konami car transporter, this’ll do.

LaLD ///May: E34 5-Series [1:64] LaLD ///May: E34 5-Series [1:64]

The third (E34) generation 5-series, introduced for 1988, brought BMW’s midsize range into the 1990s.

LaLD Engine Week: 8-Cylinder - Opel Diplomat A [1:64] LaLD Engine Week: 8-Cylinder - Opel Diplomat A [1:64]

This here is probably the best engine casting done by Lesney, and certainly for the pre-Superfast era.

LaLD Engine Week: 4-Cylinder - BMW 520 [1:43] LaLD Engine Week: 4-Cylinder - BMW 520 [1:43]

I’d already featured Schuco’s vintage BMW 520 earlier this year, but I’ve been busy the past week, so I shall bring it out again to feature for LaLD Engine Week.

Diecast After Dark: Trying New Stuff Diecast After Dark: Trying New Stuff

Just a few phone test shots of a black car in the dark.

Working Wednesday: ... And In With the New(s)! Working Wednesday: ... And In With the New(s)!

Last week, I showed the Canter Refuse Truck, here to remove the old, and here is the truck bringing the new(s)! This is Tomica 107-1, the Nissan Caball Newspaper Truck.

Working Wednesday: Out With the Old ... Working Wednesday: Out With the Old ...

The Mitsubishi Canter is a mainstay of the commercial truck lineup of Mitsubishi (now Mitsubishi Fuso), first appearing in 1963. The Tomica Canter is quite a mainstay for Tomica, with many variants released over the years - box trucks, tow trucks, TV trucks, refuse trucks, and dump trucks, among others.
