Unlike the past 2 days, where I couldn’t decide what to feature, there was no debating what today’s entry would be. I mean, the car is named Blackbird; how obvious could it be? The model comes from AUTOart and has been featured on LaLD a few times, so lets get right to the pics.
I know I’ve shown this before, but I just love looking at it. Reminds me of vacation.
Thanks to R32Rennsport for finding the new longnose 911/Magnus Walker Outlaw cast for me, it’s perfect timing for us both at the shop with this wonderful late ‘73 911T in...
Last week I showed a Kyosho rendition on the 993 RS, today we’re seeing a newer generation (997) with a turbo on it from Kyosho as well: The 911 GT2RS.
The old Siku is on familiar footing again...
A little while ago I was lucky enough to get a huge pile of Kyosho 1/64s from the Porsche Minicar Collection IV. And I realize I’ve shown way too little of these little gems.
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…
So this showed up in the mail today! Straight from Japan!
I wasn’t a fan of the red base, red interior, or the wheels on the black 911.
Flying Lizard Motorsports raced the 911 GT3 RSR in the American Le Mans series with Porsche factory support, with the #45 car featured here winning 3 consecutive drivers championships from 2008-2010 with the team 2 constructors championship in the ALMS series along the way.
It’s the ninth day of the eleventh month, so post the Porsche 911 diecasts that you have!
Number 996. Not to be mistaken for 666 but still: to many a number not to be adored. Same here actually. At first I was like: What the Fuchs is happening here? Where do the eggs come from????
UPDATE: Starts below... Sticking with my new policy of restricting myself to one “new” item if/when I make it to the flea hotel, I dug deep into the far corners of the indoor section (it was raining today...), and found a treasure:
Don’t worry. I used Google Translate for the title. After all, one does not want the creation of an urban legend at one’s expense. But it is true - I don’t think there is anyone here at LaLD that isn’t a fan of Porsche. I am certainly a big one.
I was SOOOOO excited when Small Scale Sydney announced these to be the new Tomica Premiums: The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7.
The only way I can afford to buy a Magnus Walker Porsche!
Another LeMans post leading up to the big day. This one is as the title states, finished 6th overall and second in class according to Wikipedia.
I surprised my nephew with a blue Skyline GTR (I forgot to take a picture of it) and we opted to open up a few packs we forgot about.
Sorry for the double post, but wanted to share this as well. I nabbed this from the fleabay for less than a Tooney! Even taking into account exchange rate. No, I’m also not Canadian but I go there for work sometimes so and I can’t help but smile when talking about the crazy things you kanucks call your currency.
I finally finished up this little guy! Just a fairly simple strip and repaint job, with new wheels. He was in pretty rough shape. Dinged paint, bent axles, etc. I don’t even remember if this was one I had in my childhood or if I acquired it more recently. It was in need of a full restoration though!
