I just had to throw a diecast in here; but as many of you know, I myself am an automotive photographer when I’m not collecting diecasts or doing other projects.
Walked up to a fairly ravaged dump bin and came across a pile of regular Driftsta’s sitting on the top and hanging on the sign. Thought “wow someone must have found the Super” and immediately saw the super sitting tucked away in the corner of the bin fully exposed.
Focus RS or Escort RS 1600? I’d have to go for the Focus, but I would modify it to be like the Escort (rally lights, livery wrap) Maybe my first custom? We shall see.
Which one would you pick, and also which track would you take your pick out on?
I’ve finally got all 4 after finding the GT at Lime Rock over Labor Day weekend.
After hunting for weeks, a Hot Wheels Miata has been found! I love the roll cage and the little tow hooks on the bumpers!
I came across a few of the Race and Play Ferrari series at TRU today. Here’s the 4 I found most appealing to myself, the 599XX, LaFerrari, 250 GTO, and 250 Testarossa “Pontoon Body.”
Yes. Yes it is. Photos taken with my Sony RX100
I found this at my local Walmart and decided it was probably an error, upon further research, it is!
Tonight I stopped by Walmart and found a dump bin that looked mostly picked through, I still managed to sift through the remains and find the 3 cars I had been looking for, the silver 356 Outlaw, the RS .01, and the new NSX. Lots of pics below, enjoy!
I recently picked up a few “toys” for shooting 1:1 cars, but I figured I would give them a try on diecasts. Pictured here is the Sony RX100, and the Streamlight ProTac 2AA model.
After hunting for this cast for a good amount of time, I finally came upon a few of them in an end cap at my local Target. One had a decent card, another was completely destroyed. I picked up both and DLM’d this one. The tampos look to be fairly accurately placed which I was surprised by.
It’s been far too long LaLD, but I am back! It’s been an action packed past few months and I just haven’t had the time to post on here, but I’ve got a great post for you today.
I’ve been trying new techniques with my diecasts lately, and the most fun I had was with water. After setting up a few small LED’s and a rather large workshop style LED, these were my results. (All photos taken on iPhone 5S)
After seeing a couple of the Then and Now sets, I decided to unite two that should go together, the D-Type and F-Type Project-7.
This is one of those cars I bought, opened, then realized it had an error. The front splitter is bent pretty well in the middle, so I always put this car off to the side.
As some of you may already know, my hobby aside from diecasts is photography. I went to a local show a few weeks back and only now found this post and decided it was time to share before I forgot again.
After carrying around this little guy for the last few months everywhere I went, it began to look a little beat up. To start, the red on the wheels almost immediately wore off, and some of the “sponsors” were showing signs of wear too. I broke out my trusty silver sharpie and got to work.
