Am I The Last To Know This? Am I The Last To Know This?

The Embosser Hauler, an ugly sucker if I’ve ever seen one. I’ve always ignored these and moved on. At Saturday’s K-Day we found these white recolors, and one of the good guys said, “You know what these do, right?” I said no, so he told me, and I was slightly amazed...more because I’d never heard about their hidden…

My K-Day 9/17 My K-Day 9/17

I think* there were only 3 Fairladies found at the whole event, same with the grey GTR. The orange VW Golf is part of a then & now set...does anyone know what the opposite will be? I have an extra set of the red Mazda T&Ns up for HWEP/Paypal. *The local scalper scumball was there; we haven’t seen him in a few events and…

The Weekend So Far... The Weekend So Far...

As my last weekend going to the bigger outdoor fleascapades, I took my time at the airport one. Got a lot of great stuff, but here are a few highlights. More to come...

Is This A $10 Tomica?/Discussion Over Is This A $10 Tomica?/Discussion Over

Plus $1 shipping from Hong Kong...is this a common Tomica, one I can find for a better buy-it-now price? I love tracked vehicles, but I don’t want to overpay. der...

Do I have your attention...?

You ever have that feeling, like it would be nice to finish a small diecast project now and then? NO! Of course not! Everyone else here finishes their projects! I seem to start one, then another, another, etc., etc, and rarely put one all the way back together. So, just to know that feeling of putting something back…

The "R" Word... The "R" Word...

Is this rare? Is that rare? I’ve been looking for a parts car for one of my Yatming resto-mods, and I keep running into the word Rare. Did Yatming make fewer of some cars than others? Were kids harder on certain cars? I did a search for Yatming VW Sciroccos and the few I found are all pretty spendy, and some use the word…

Boneshakers Sought Boneshakers Sought

I’m trying to help a friend down under find a couple of Boneshakers from the Classics series, and I’d like to ask the LaLD community for help. First up, the purple:

Hour (or more) Rule Hour (or more) Rule

I very, very rarely buy this “class” of diecast, especially when the base has crept so far up the sides. But when I recognized what it was, I decided to make an exception. The nose and tail sections of the base do have halfway decent detail.

Next To Last Fleaward of 2017 Next To Last Fleaward of 2017

That...was a lot of walking! One more airport fleside visit this year, and I’m officially done for the year. All you youngins’ better be kicking up your heels while you still can! lol...

Works With Dental Appointments Too... Works With Dental Appointments Too...

Apparently... I’ve had good luck hunting on the way to/from doctor appointments, but this morning I had to see my dentist. I stopped at the same TRU as yesterday to see if I missed anything, and, ...voilà!

The RAOK/HWEP Phenomenon Strikes Again The RAOK/HWEP Phenomenon Strikes Again

I recently had a HWEP with Plasticprints II, and one of the cars I was fortunate enough to receive was my very first McLaren F1 GTR.This one’s already DLM’d and sitting on the work bench, wondering what I’m going to do to it...

T’was this past Sunday, I found myself amid Summers, at the fleaside resort:

MBX Color Change VW T3 Photo? MBX Color Change VW T3 Photo?

Didn’t someone here on LaLD post a photo of the MBX color changing T3 Pickup in color “changed” mode? I seem to remember one, but I can’t find it.

In-SOMA-nia In-SOMA-nia

I couldn’t crash tonight without at least one post from my day among the fleas. Soma 911, this one is now the best Soma in my bailiwick.

Soviet Saturday - Deagostini RAF-2203 Soviet Saturday - Deagostini RAF-2203

This was a gamble I decided to take today, at one of the local flea malls. I may have an expensive desk ornament, or I may have a good deal, I just don’t know. I do know that it wouldn’t have been there next week, or possibly even tomorrow, so I took the chance.
