I figured, “hey, let’s put some pieces of wood on the diorama”. I thought it turned out pretty well. What do you guys think?
Got gas and saw this truck filling up on diesel. It apparently belongs to a dealership called Cauley, which is near Detroit. Still, I was surprised to see this truck out in the sticks, aka country.
My parents are visiting from Florida and took my family to the museum. Apparently one of the curators was a good friend to my younger brother, so we got to hang out with her for half the visit (until her job called, that is).
My birthday is this Saturday, but I got to open a few presents early, hooray!
I’m proud to say that I now have two cars, totally paid off, sitting in my driveway! For me, that’s a personal accomplishment!
I got this blue AW Ford GT40 a while ago... just now posting it. I picked it up because it was on clearance, and would look good on the track diorama. It’s a shame it has the same number as the red GT40, but it’s still a nice casting.
My year old boy is sick, I got incredibly sick and called out of work last Tuesday. Wednesday morning I was feeling well enough to go to the office (I have to get those hours in)... ended up backing up and breaking my side view mirror when I side-swiped a tree. Broke the motor inside of it, broke the color-matching…
It was the first time I’ve ever gone to one; it’s best described as a country-themed Walmart. I went because mrsztp said they had a set like this (link below) at the store; an awesome Ertl Harvesting set, which appears to have a true scale 1/64 Combine Harvester (and everyone should know I LOVE true scale castings).…
I got this Motor Max 1/24 ‘79 Ford F-150 Custom a few weeks ago, but haven’t had time to share. It’s a pretty simplistic model, nothing special about it, but I absolutely love old Ford trucks; especially the ones with square bodies. So when I saw this, I had to have it.
The newest addition to my collection is this GL ‘39 Chevy Panel Truck. What a awesome little casting too! The cool factor is dialed up further when I discovered that Krispy Kreme donuts was founded in 1937! Which makes this truck a real-life, period correct casting! Idk, I just thought that was really neat, :).
It happened last night returning home from work. Not entirely sure what happened, but I lost control of the car when it tried to fishtail and I tried to correct it; the car fishtailed worst as I over corrected it. It did a 180 spin and landed in a ditch; the force of the impact apparently turned the engine off.
I had the Ram 2500 and the Ford with the heavy duty trailers; and I just bought a second Ford with trailer earlier today. Namely because I love these trailers, and they are extremely cool! :D
Hey guys, I just wanted to share what I got for Christmas this year! I got quite a hawl!
I’m sure everyone is aware that legos hurt when stepped upon, right? Well, I’m pretty sure I found something to compete against it. Ztp Jr. was playing with this shark casting in the middle of the doorway. I stepped over her and my right foot landed right on top on this car. Wait, it gets better.
I figured I should take some diorama picks, since it was always a care-free activity that I enjoyed. Which pic and casting are you favorite?
Hey everyone! Just wanted to remind you guys that I’m not dead, and to share that I got this cool AW hawl! It seems to be a limited edition run. I haven’t opened it yet... been a bit busy, :p. But I plan on it later today.
This year ztp junior and I decided to carve a pumpkin; for the very first time ever. It turned out pretty good! Junior requested a happy pumpkin, not a scary one. Also, she named it “Savvy Pumpkin”, because she has a knack for giving weird names (she wanted to name the new dog ‘Popsicle’). What kind of…
Our usual setup is that we have a table over the dog kennel. But now that we have two dogs, I figured I should just make a new custom one.
A sheltie to be precise. Her name is Wing Gundam; Wing for short. Ten internet points if you know the reference. She’s a year and four months old.
Clever GL. While looking for for a car part in the house (still can’t find it...), I stared at the Grand Am long enough to realize “hey, that looks like it can separate”. Lo and behold, it indeed separates and the Grand Am has a engine compartment. Pretty neat GL.
