Spotted this Mazda 6 / Atenza today...
You can’t change the wheels without opening it ;)
You had me sold.....then I scrolled down and saw THAT IT LIGHTS UP TOO!?!? The details are blowing me away. Very cool.
...even has stickers on the sun visors. Incredible!
///Magnificent! Oh wait we aren’t doing that anymore...
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.
Keep ‘em coming, TLV.
Actually, thanks for the background. I didn’t know any of that BMW history.
Everyone knows the tale of the BMW 507, BMW’s sexy little roadster of the 1950s that took the jet set by storm, to the point that even the King himself owned one. It was a design and legacy that always firmed itself into the history of our favorite Bavarian brand, with only a few concepts from the company holding that…
Johnny Lightning, and the scale is near 1:64
Sounds like I need to start hoarding desirable castings. Or maybe I can just look for more ugly Boost Brigade Integras that deserve a better paint job.
You still have two more strikes to go, use them
You came dangerously close to getting banned for non-diecast activity, but since we have a three strike rule and this is your first offense, we’ll go light on you. Your punishment is you have to complete a custom within a month.
Anything motorized amuses me. That’s why my second “wallet-draining” hobby is that of RC vehicles.
Oh there was a HW I wanted to post all about and then paint a specific color and talk about potential wheel options but didn’t have the time this weekend.
That’s a cool model - and the fact it’s motorized is even better. I come across a lot of 1/24 models while Hot Wheels hunting, but haven’t completed one in years. But the winter is coming so indoor activities like model building do sound pretty good!
I still have a few bells and whistles I may add, but I think this thing is close enough to make its debut.
The Australians call it a Holden Commodore, but you might know it better as a Chevrolet SS. This is a 1:18 scale Holden VF Commodore SSV Redline II in Slipstream Blue by Australian brand Biante Model Cars.
