Salvat is an editorial group much like DeAgostini, and their collections are sold on several news stands in Brazil and Europe. They recently launched a 100-edition Ford F-100 in 1:8 scale. The model is perfect that it has horns, illuminated dashboard, headlights and tail lights that light up when you depress the…
Here are my two first Tarmac Works models and, oh boy, what a great pair of models!
Greetings, everyone! Long time, no post. But, also, long time no hawl. However, tables turned, and I had an excellent mail hawl recently! This pair of beauties here.
Someone just shared this on a collector’s group, and it was too cool for not to share with you too
These things are insane! I had never saw safety belts and rear window defoggers on a 1:64 model before.
Leave it to M2 when the job is making an incredible pickup truck.
I only tried customizing just a few times, but I can safely say this is my best job. A great casting made better by a metal polish.
Also, what a great name for a drag racing car!
No denial about how incredible HW 100%s are!
Sometimes, all we need is just smoke and mirrors...
Just saw this on The Brother’s Brick: This Lego Mk.I GTi is so awesome!!! It’s crammed full of nifty details, as using a tiny lego microphone as the golf-ball gear stick. Joe Perez, the builder, went as far as recreating the slim red border on the grille!
Fresh news from The Brother’s Brick: Lego just teased a Bugatti Chiron Technic set:
I was greeted with sad news this morning. In two days it rained more than what was expected for the entire month in Florianópolis, southern Brazil, and my lab was flooded. I had a few models there, temporally on a low drawer, and this is how I found them:
I’ve got an excellent reason to jump into the Tarmac Works bandwagon, with an awesome BMW M3 E30 just like the one in the photo below. I’ve got my first full scientific paper accepted for publication!
As an astronomer, there’s nothing special about the “new year” on Earth orbit. Bur, heck, we’re human too! So here’s my belated part for the celebration!
Sorry for the recent absence, I was pretty much all the time at the kitchen, haha. I believe this photo represents a good part of us at this December 26th, after stuffing our stomachs with so much delicious food.
I recently found out Alfa Romeo had an amazing little van, so I obviously ran to the Google oracle to see if there were diecast models of it. I’m not disappointed. These are so cute, I want them all!
Slowly, but steadily, the Altaya Lendas Brasileiras do Automobilismo (Brazilian Motorsports Legends) collection is getting to the newstands on my state. So I finally grabbed this awesome Brabham, driven by José Carlos Pace.
Completely unrelated to diecast, but do you like short horror stories? If so, I want your help! I had an idea and wrote a short (2000 words) horror story, and I want your feedback on it. More after the jump.
It’s no secret that I love the Super Van. Simplicity is often the recipe for success, and if this model wasn’t as good as I think it is it wouldn’t be in HW’s line since 1975. This highly detailed casting was part of the Delivery series from some years ago.
