Tomica’s latest TLV Porsche 911S sure is great and a lot of us seem to have gotten it. We’ve all seen those recent posts on it. I got it as well and it’s my second TLV 911S, as I did get the yellow one over two years ago. What I don’t get however, is why those Minichamps64s in fact never really catched on.
Finally all customs work was finished so I could pick up the little Pao this week. The Japanese really ship ‘m without any fuel whatsoever so I had to winch it up on the truck.
Bialbero is a well known name in the Italian automotive world. Alfa had a Bialbero engine and FIAT had one as well. It comes from Bi Albero, or “two shafts”. Camshafts that is.
One of the most distinctive looking sportscars ever. I’ve mentioned it before, as it is the successor of the HBR5 I wrote about a little while ago. Well, successor... The HBR5 was a DB with a Panhard engine, this one was a Panhard developed by Charles Deutsch.
With summer finally taking off over here my nextdoor neighbor took out his Tuscan again. And good lord it sounds glorious. This might just be the best sounding in-line 6 pot ever. Just that rear sticker...
With a Brexit at hand we (“ze Germans”) ran into some Anglo limousines while driving a tour with the local Porsche dealer. One of the Rolls-Royces had “Duchess” as it’s (Belgian) license plate. What a contrast, both in cars and public...
This one might look a bit familiar as it was the one that featured last year’s Paris Dakar post. In a bigger scale that is, that one was a Minichamps 1/43. This one is a Norev 3 inch. Missing a lot of details the 1/43 has but still: a very decent interpretation!
Two weeks ago I showed the 1/64 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale by Bburago and complained about those hideous wheels. One of the best features on those Bburago 1/64s though is... Easiest wheelswap ever. Because screwed underpinnings!
Last week I showed a new color on Norev’s 3" Peugeot 205GTI, today I’ll show a new (-ish) released color of the GTI’s ancestor: The Simca 1000 Rallye. And this bread box might just be the car I’ve featured the most on French Fridays, it even was subject in the first LaLD-post I ever did.
One of my favorite BMWs this one. What a profile. Like a clown’s shoe. Totally. Quite daring of the Bavarian brand to actually produce this one, you either love it or hate it. Although the love nowadays predominates, I feel. Especially on a car-enthusiast’s blog.
Last French Friday Dadurling asked me what diorama I used for the shots of the 205 GTI, I thought I’d share the answer. A bit.
The Lamley Group posted another guest post yesterday by my hand, all in time for French Friday! It’s a bit of a reworked post of one I did over here on LaLD but has additional info/shots I came up with when I found the Highway Patrol R.S.01. I repeat: HIGHWAY PATROL R.S.01! Somebody call the Dubai police forces!
Norev’s new “release” (color) on their 205 GTI. Well, new... I’ve had it for a while and it’s about time I showed it. You might remember the red one I showed before along with some 1/43s. Or not as it was well over a year ago.
During the Europpomeet last March we visited the Musée du Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Stavelot. And there she was, this great Alpine. According to the Musée it was a 1966 A210 M65 but the M65 was it’s predecessor, this is the M66. Which also was called A210. As far as I know. Whatever. It’s gorgeous. And capable…
I had other Teutonic plans for today but when I saw R32Rennsport’s announcement it’s 550 Spyder Day today I decided to skip the initial idea and tag along. A little throwback.
Last week I ran into Bburago’s line of 1/64 Ferraris. Boxed, about 2,50 euros, what’s not to love? Well, I only found one that I wanted to take home actually. This F360 Challenge Stradale. Or did that one officially came without the F360-part in it’s name?
I always felt this one to look a bit like a Coccinellidae. Or Ladybird. Or Ladybug, whatever it’s called over there: We call it a Lieveheersbeestje, freely translated into “Sweet lord’s little creature”. It comes without the black on red though.
As is the Custom is back on Lamley. And in his intro post John tells everyone who shares his/her customs on Instagram to add the hashtag #lamleycustoms. So it’ll be easier for him to gather custom stuff WEEKLY. Guess who showed up in this inaugural post...
