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!
First of all THANK YOU PLASTICPRINTS for making this comparison happen in the first place. Thanks to you I finally know what it feels like to own a TLV.
Once in a while I’m hugely intrigued by the scaled engines by CMC. They’re 1/18, come on a nice wooden stand and share a lot of detail. It’s just that they’re, well, expensive. 125 Euros for a Bugatti 57SC engine. On Ebay often even more is asked.
I got his end of our trade yesterday and it was a real surprise! Our HWEP was for two cars but inside I found six! Here are the Teutonic ones, all from that famed town of Stuttgart:
A couple of weeks ago I shared a Micro Machines R5 Turbo Shopteacher sent me for a iHWEP. But next to that awesome MM he put some others in the box as well, all of Teutonic descent.
One by me, and one by the great @5pudly on instagram.
Daytona, 1966: The Ford/Ferrari wars are just hitting their stride, the Ford GT40 MkII vs the Ferrari 250LM & 365P. The eyes of the world are on this clash of titans. For the first time, Daytona’s high banks and infield road course would see 24 hours of racing, the duration having been increased to that of Le Mans…
I did mention before I got a surprise-box a little while back from the USA. Next to those Alfas I got (totally unexpecting), there was a gem inside that box just waiting to be shown on a future Teutonic Tuesday. So this week I’m putting it on display. An epic one.

I wasn’t able to get very good lighting or get my camera settings right for some reason, but I did promise more at 11, so it’s 11:35, here ya go! :P
