Yes, the Toyota Harrier is sold in western countries as the Lexus RS.
Great post and an awesome diecast. Walter Wolf Racing is one of my favorite teams. What’s more impressive about their 1977 season is they were 4th in the constructor’s championship with ONE car. It was a single car team with which Lauda finished 2nd in the driver’s championship. And they are tied with Brawn as the…
I have that 2000GT-X and that 2000GT-R, both loose.
Amazing photos! The 917 is my all-time favorite car.
Small world, I’m also working on a Rothmans car! The 1983 956. Yours is looking very sharp.
Maybe we can make this a site-wide group build!
I look forward to never ever finding the Datsun one.
Always thought the Swift and the Renault Megane were some great looking early 2000's hatchbacks.
Oh yeah, these are terrible for actually looking around in store. But I love having a branded display like this. I find peg boards hideous and are only appropriate for garages, so this is my best option.
It’s definitely got some Pikachu face going on.
Daaaaaaaamn that Stratos is awesome!
You have to run it under cold water to get the wing to harden in the right shape. Otherwise the wing will droop again before it cools.
Run the wing under hot water, bend it back into place, then run it under cold water.
Definitely used some illegal techniques when I built this Austin Healer a few years back.
For this one, I didn’t need a setting solution as the decals were nice and thin. I just gave it a coat of Future floor wax after application. When I’m building models, I use micro-sol and micro-set. I find Solvaset to be a bit volatile and can melt fragile decals.
That is beautiful!! That blue is just incredible. I used to work at a hobby shop and we sold the previous generation 5 series by Norev. They flew off the shelf every time, it’s a fantastic value.
I have this diecast in beat up condition with no rear hatch. I have long wondered what to do with it. I'd be happy to give it to you to help restore yours!
Love the shots and that diecast! To clarify, your car the final iteration of the 33/3. This Tipo 33/3 was introduced for the 1969 season and the first Alfa prototype sports racer with a monocoque. unfortunately most chassis histories were not logged and therefore unknown, so we don’t know exactly when your car was…
The split window and raised spine is an homage to Bugatti’s Type 57 Atlantic.
Are you still in search of 620s? I’ve managed to get 3 of them if you’re interested!
