Might be too good of a deal to last but if anyone is interested this seems like a decent price for a reasonably hard model to come across.
And all this BMW shenanigans for a little Thursday on the Thames project announcement.
UT Models 993 GT2 in 1:18
Haven’t had much luck lately in hunting. I did pick up these 1:24 M2s for my Snap On friend tonight though. Pretty cool but he collects 510s so I’m passing them along.
One more grail/hunt piece checked off the list. Hot Wheels Ferrari 156 in the very rare Belgian Grand Prix yellow, only available in the 2002 International Ferrari 5 pack. I’ve literally been on the hunt for this one for years. This mint loose one came up on Ebay.uk last month for a steal!
Sometimes perusing Craigslist pays off. In this instance it netted me a brand new UT Models 993 GT2 for a whopping $10 from an obscure thrift store in the next town over. You read that right, it’s not missing a zero.
I’ve been absent the last few days, lots going on over here. I will throw this last one in the ring as my wildcard from back in 2016. Though not a popular cast to work with I really enjoyed the frustrating challenge of masking compound curves. If you look close enough those really are Shell decals on the axle ends!
The original Porsche GT2. The epitome of automotive design and mechanical perfection combined? It’s debatable but in my opinion Porsche checked all the right boxes on this one.
Did you really expect me to post anything different today? By far my biggest and best accomplishment in the world of small cars to date. It’s probably responsible for the highest amount of foot traffic for a single post on this site, mods correct me if I’m wrong.
I really love digging into the archives for some of my favorite builds. Those of you who have been around for awhile will recall the Super Fly builds from back in May of 2016. This was my entry, the combination of a HW bus and a MB Blizzard Buster to make an Alpine Ambulance. If I had more time I was going to deck it…
Since I have no time to play I’ll bring some old posts/customs back from the dead. This guy is from July 2016 and is still one of my favorites...
Went to Target for milk and came home with some soup. Luckily there was a Skyline left out of 4 sets and absolutely no VW buses. Plenty of Hondas, Supervans and Vanagons.
Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. Going through some life growing pains and struggles at the moment. In that same train of thought I’m preparing to move into what will most likely be a much much smaller space then I’m currently in and inevitably this means downsizing in many ways. Unfortunately, this also means I won’t have…
By the numbers. 16 people, 5 boxes>20 cases, 4 STHs. No super for me but plenty of other awesomeness. Good luck hunting!
If you haven’t noticed it has been a wealth of opportunity around my work this week. Today delivered. Belongs to a friend of mine. Will easily light up tires rolling on the gas in 2nd gear. 👍
We had this come through the shop today, sadly it has the horrible first generation auto trans, not as bad as a BMW SMG but pretty close. Nevertheless not a bad car to look at, similar V8 4.2 that’s in the same year RS4 sedan that sounds mean.
NASCAR BMW CSL. Been kicking around my project back lot for quite awhile now. Just kinda dig the look, doubt I’ll ever do anything else with it. Because wheel lettering.
It’s been a gold mine around the shop lately. Here are two that I meant to post up yesterday. Word on the street is an R8 is on the schedule for tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Thanks to SN210 for hooking it up. A lot of stuff I’ve been looking for ages at prices that made my eyeballs fall out. Too generous man! I love this community!
If anyone has a soft spot for early beetles it’s definitely myself as I’ve owned three in my short life span, everything from bone stock to full Cal-look/resto mod. When I saw that M2 was coming out with a 1:24 scale of a 1952 split in this pastel green it immediately struck a cord with me as my 1956 beetle was the…
