One of you rascals sold me a green Hot Wheels BMW 2002 with the body already drilled and half the tampos removed. Guess it fell to me to finish the job.
UPDATE: 180SXE joins my custom club.
There was only one car that made sense next to Christine.
Weeks and weeks of pileup from Doug finally came crashing through my mail slot. What a hawl!
I took the parking garage off my table. I have other plans for that space and it was just too big. Instead, I want to use it for this:
After all the buildup and stress and procrastination, I have finally taken the next step in customs. Behold!
It’s a nice Falken truck! I ordered the case just now. Definitely keeping the Z and one of the Falkens. Unlike last time, I think I’m going to keep this gasser, though if someone really wants it I am open to making a trade there too.
This stuff isn’t doing a thing. I even sanded the paint and tried again. Still nothing. Did the guy at the hobby shop lead me astray?
Got to spend most of today hunting, drilling, and painting. Hunt-wise, I turned up a few mainlines just for kicks, and the Fast and Furious Mustang, which I wasn’t going to chase but hey, nice to find in the store.
Boy did I mess this one up. I found out that Gundam markers have wonderfully fine tips and not so wonderfully aggressive pigments. I managed to turn a tiny correction into an absolute mess.
I keep promising myself I’ll build a whole pit lane/Goodwood Speed Fest thing, and then I don’t. Well, today, I did a little.
Seeing all the 4th of July posts, I thought I’d offer up my own take.
I haven’t posted in a while, though I’m still collecting faster than I can put them away. But I missed sharing my luck with you all.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that the original Z has a special place in my collection. So now they need a special place... in my collection.
I have these two spares. Happy to part with them for $5.50 each plus shipping. Email is scottganz at Gmail.
UPDATE: I have buyers for both.
Well now I’ve gone and done it.
I got the display case. I am not a truck guy. If anyone wants to swap for this, I’d be happy to work a deal. Some more pics:
I had to call in sick today. No, it is not a case of St. Patricksitis. I didn’t spend my weekend carousing. I spent it putting these together:
Remember when I detailed that black and blue 2002? Well I decided to finish the job today. As usual, it was a mess. As usual, I like what I wound up with.
