A little over a week ago, Philip and I were going back and forth on how to get really cheap and easy disc brakes for customs. Among the ideas for cutting a clean hole in some sequins, Philip also suggested metal washers instead. And voila, thanks Philip!
What a great month this is. Next week Porsche Rennsport week, and this week we have three of the most extreme Porsches as well, the 917, 918, and 919.
Maybe cheating but I’ll just call this a 1969 Porsche 912 with a 911 engine in it for today. Works, right??
You mostly know him as one of the LaLD OGs, co-founder of #Team118, or simply as Sn210. He works almost exclusively in 1:18, but knowing he could use a challenge, we teamed up for a 1:64 photoshoot. And by “teamed up” I mean that I gave him two cars to shoot and he did literally all the work.
Pearl-white 356 + tear drop camper = instand getaway! I mean, what more do you need? The camper even has a stove in the back.
I think Noodles can see into my soul. He knows what I lust over. I got home late at night and in the mail was this beauty! What a friggin awesome custom! Is Noodles a surgeon? The tailights were painted with such precision.
I found the new DeLorean release and I had to share it’s pure brilliance. I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen/owned one of the BTTF models in the past, or that odd livery red one that came out last year. But now there’s a new color!
As soon as I saw the April 5th story on Petrolicious about a 1972 Porsche 911T-turned-911ST, I knew I had to build it in 1/64 scale. And I finally finished it!
I’ve only been here for two weeks but I’ve always wanted to share this with the LaLD community. This simple method is my favorite for detailing diecasts and I hope you guys learn to apply it too.
It’s a package. It’s from Malaysia. It’s overpriced. It’s loose. And it’s got rubber tires. What could it be?
This is definitely my favorite fantasy casting. It’s fun, with just enough realism, motorsports, and iconic liveries.
Seems a lot of people are posting about haulers today, so I’ll give a progress pic of mine. This is that maisto I showed a week or so ago. Much better colors though. I am enjoying this one.
Well... it’s been a while LaLD! I hope all are well. :) I’ve got a big 90 project right around the corner so I thought I’d knock this one out quick. Someone local asked me to build a clone of her sons first car - a pearl white ‘71 Riviera. Dug through my box of crap and found the ‘71 Riviera hunt. I haven’t build…
Been a long time since I made a custom. I decided to take Matchbox’s SLR Mercedes-McLaren and make a 722 roadster. The 722 is referring to the racord setting SLR driven by Stirling Moss at hte Mille Miglia in 1955.
When I decided to embark on Project: Screentime, I knew that a few of my favorite screen cars would either be too expensive or simply unavailable. Well, today I sat down and made one for myself.
Working on a little ducktail action for a very special commission. Nearly there!
Months ago I did some detailing and minor customizing on 2 of my Datsun 620. On my 160th post I decided to give the matte black some gloss over.
Beads! (not Kyosho). I commissioned this incredible piece from an Instagram user with American Indian heritage, after seeing her Mooneyes and NHRA logo beadwork. Custom zamac drag car with custom letter tires by @socaldiecast562
It’s a Matchbox Porsche Boxster that is a replica of a guy’s 1:1, complete with roll bar, and dark blue rear bumper, which is impossible to see.
