Once a year I get to splurge on a 1:18 for my birthday. Because this is a once a year occurrence, I have to make it count. Two years ago I got the Gozzy Kremer Porsche 935K3, last year I got the McLaren F1 GTR “Ueno Clinic,” and this year I went back to my 935 roots and went for the legendary #0 Interscope Racing…
I’m going out of town this afternoon, so unfortunately I won’t really have time to take new photos. So here are some regurgitated ones of a custom silver speedster I made a while back.
An all time favourite of mine, the Porsche 911 Gt1 straßenversion and oh was I so spellbound when I first saw that Kyosho had made one in 1:64 scale for their Beads Collection line that I knew I had to have one!
This is Spark’s rendition of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans winning Porsche 919 Hybrid in 1/64 scale.
I didn’t realize this was a popular one to customize until I drilled mine apart. Since everyone else is posting theirs on IG, I thought I’d share the first phase of my idea. The details aren’t perfect, but I will fix them as I get into the second phase:D
Kyosho has sucked me in (I blame eBay). I’ve been veeeery bad, but it feels sooo good:) Let’s begin.
I’ve shown the 964RS from Kyosho’s Porsche Minicar Collection VI before here. But I have a few of series V as well. Those came in more boring colors. Black, silver and white.
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.
