I need not introduce the Hilux to anyone here, I guess. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of miniature models of the successive generations of the pickup, let alone being affordable. Thankfully, Majorette decided to add a pre-facelift eighth gen Hilux to their standard lineup again (they also did a version of…
Happened to spot this GL Foxbody Stang, and that was a no brainer. I could not afford the special CC release Foxbody, so this would be the closest I came to owning one; probably even better.
Another Monday, another week. Duh.
Takara Tomy has been blessing the affordable diecast market with some killer Ferraris lately, along with the uber-expensive TLV offerings. The Dino is the latest release from the Premium line.
Another gem from the 90s. Another boxy four door saloon with a very capable heart inside; the JZX100 Chaser. Happens to be one of my favorite saloons as well. Hence the need to look for an affordable miniature version, and hence the reason to stick with a kit build.
It has been a long while. In the meantime my collection grew up, ever so slightly though. This one is the beginning of a new addiction that is threatening to completely dry my bank balance.
The past few weeks have been quite turbulent, and they have also made a big turnaround in my life as well. Rephrasing what General Shepherd says at the opening cutscene of CoD: Modern Warfare 2, “Locations change, new people, new places, new cultures step in, but the hobby always finds a place to peek in.”
It has been ages since my last post, and things have changed dramatically in my life. Will keep fellow LaLDers updated on that. Hence this post will not be rich with snaps either. Hope everyone is doing great! But first, the new Tomica Hiace.
A little comparison shoot with Tomica Premium Nissan 300ZX and Datsun Z, both Fairladies.
The title might be a little confusing, but at the time of composing this article, my day is also quite similar; in between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Can’t get enough of this Z - Tune madness.
It’s almost Monday. Duh.
Yet another kit build, but slightly better results this time.
A solid one from HW, after the ‘17 Raptor casting.
I was never a fan of these souped up monsters, until the Chevy Bel Air Gasser casting popped up on the radar.
80's had some of the finest looking cars (at least for my eyes), an era where sharp lines dominated, and boxes used to rule the neighbourhood. The F31 Nissan Leopard, the second generation of the Leopard lineage, provides a good example.
A little nip and tuck to the good ol’ casting from MBX.
My obsession with the late off roader should not be a new thing for the LaLDers xD. It only makes sense that I compare a few I have (those approaching 1/64 scale).
Probably. Sadly I don’t own the car I am about to post, and judging by the price, quite unlikely that I ever will. However, like the Bugatti Chiron, I am glad it exists, to show how far these models can go.
