Efsi was a Dutch diecast brand in the 70s and 80s with quite an interesting story. Here are three of their models.
I got his end of our trade yesterday and it was a real surprise! Our HWEP was for two cars but inside I found six! Here are the Teutonic ones, all from that famed town of Stuttgart:
There are only a few castings I really try to get all editions of, but the foremost of them is really the Hot Wheels Porsche 911 (997) GT2. And in honor of a recent addition, here is the full lineup as I have it right now.

This is a Renault 5 Turbo from my youth collection.
As Jobjoris and I decreed last week, the theme for today’s Teutonic Tuesday is the lovely (and frightening) Porsche 917. Let’s see em!
And only because I don’t want Androoo’s Harrods car to feel lonely.
Finally found me some Majorettes last week, so I picked up the three pack containing a Renault Twingo, Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder, and this orange Jaguar F-Type, which just so happens to be one of the prettiest cars on the road today.
I’m going to keep this post small, because Jobjoris already did a phenomenal job teaching, and Sn210 already did a phenomenal job going big with Exoto, so I’ll stick to the Matchbox and Hot Wheels 959s.
If there is one truth I’ve found to be universal in life, it’s that for F1 cars, much like birds, three in the hand is better than a full grid on the track.
One more day to vote! Vote for your favorite and see it in the Swag Shop soon!
Let me introduce you guys to three fine gentlemen who will be piloting some vintage F1 machinery in the VDH Customs Headstarter GP. From left to right: English gentleman Percival Shiftright, Esquire, Italian playboy Nicotini Marlboro, and American moviestar/racing driver Donald Wishbone, who starred in blockbusters…
I finally found some Headstarters today! This is Ryu Asada’s new masterpiece and for a fantasy car I absolutely love it!
I took these photos on Saturday when it was beautiful outside, with every intention of posting them Sunday. But that didn’t happen, so here we are on Monday. And I still want to post them!
One of my favorite parts about customizing HW is just adding lights front and rear. It is sometimes a small touch but makes a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the car.
Inspired by the Amelia Island Porsche Werksreunion gathering I decided to pull my 356s together. I have a few more in the works and in various stages of planning, but this is turning into a nice lineup!
I apologize for not posting the poll yet with the tshirt entries, but it’s been a crazy few days. I’ll try to have the poll up tomorrow. Voting will extend for a few days as well, or as needed. -Philip
I was gonna show more McLaren F1 GTR since, afterall, the engine is Teutonic. But lest you guys get tired of it too quickly, here are some other things I’m working on.
My birthday present arrived Friday night! And it was amazing. Getting a big ol’ box with a Model Citizen Diecast label on it is always a great experience, from the packaging to the hand-written note from Mr. CitizenPatrick himself, and this one did not disappoint.
And I actually found two of them! My plan is to detail them both, then weather one of them to make a pair: one pre-race, one post-race.
