Might as well have some play time, right?
After a way-too-long hiatus I am finally continuing to build my Porsche race cars in 1:43 collection. In Episode 8 we will explore the #52 Porsche 907, which raced in the 1968 Daytona 24 Hours.
Last week Philipilihp announced on Instagram he’d post a 1/43 Spark Porsche Rennwagen from the Piëch era today. So I really hope he’s keeping that promise and thought: Let’s join the fun a bit.
The first Italian Grand Prix was held in 1921 in a circuit near the town of Brescia, a location that had seen auto races since the early 1900s and was considered to be the birthplace of Italian motorsport.
The stash from Ck Model Cars finally came home yesterday with my friend who is here on a vacation. Originally I thought that it was a mistake to splurge like this, but on hindsight, with the kind of deal I got (with flat shipping), I can’t think of even one of these that I wouldn’t want in my collection. And I am so…
Ah, the start of racing season in America. Here’s to a wonderful 2018! Took this picture of the 2009 24 Hours of Daytona winning Brumos Porsche by Greenlight while watching earlier today.
I got this Ford Mustang Fastback in the mail yesterday. Did Fords in 2008 look a lot like VW Beetles, or is it just me?
The old Siku is on familiar footing again...
Just a couple of quick pictures of a little display I set up with some of my 1/43 models.
918s are like London buses - you wait ages for one, then three come along at once.
A couple of nice surprises at TRU this afternoon! I unfortuantely did not find the Muira along with the Mercedes and Porsche, but the Porsche was the one I really wanted from the set anyway. In spite of the awful color. And I thought I had missed out on the Majorette Porsche hauler, so it was great to finally get that…
Another order from Model Citizen Diecast. I love, love, love Miami Blue, so when Patrick posted this thing on Instagram I knew I had to have it. It’s a 1/43 Minichamps and it’s drop-dead gorgeous.
Digging up a random old picture for your viewing pleasure this evening. This was, at one point, my entire 1/43 collection.
Ok. I am back! December is always a busy month work-wise, thanks to clients in India who want their IT stuff rolled out over the turn of the year. This year with family from the US visiting, it got even busier.
Happy New Year, LaLD! It’s been an interesting one. Fortunately, things have kept chugging along here and it’s been another great year as part of this community. Here’s to many more to come! I love the Top Ten lists that people have been posting so I decided ot get in on the action. 2017 was probably a bit slow…
Snow White... He’s been from Miami to Los Angeles and back, and now I’ve finally put the finishing touches on him (exhaust:D) I’ve shared a lot of pics with this 934.5, I hope I haven’t bored anyone. I’ve finished this GT3 RS, as well. It may be time for a new piece of traveling diecast for my upcoming voyage across…
Just a couple of Christmas hawls in front of the tree. Hope everyone had a good holiday!
Very nice casting from Hotwheels, the Porsche 934.5. I really dig the color, hopefully they will make more versions of this beast with some racing/racing-inspired paint schemes. I like the way the rims pop and the nice tampos, very cool model.
Because it is still day #356 somewhere in the world, here’s one of them.
