Hot Wheels – McLaren F1 GTR

Another recolour for this casting which I forgot I had bought before! Not too brash I think, it does well, but not necessarily one that you would have on display as an immediate entry to your Garage. Little people would take to this in an instant. It looks like some space age vehicle in their…

Hot Wheels – ’95 Mazda RX-7

The only other RX-7 I have is the Matchbox version. This one looks a little Fast And Furious which is the appeal somewhat. Good casting, I like the licensed tampos, however I have seen the blue version and thay looks a lot smarter stock as per this Instagram pic from Kiwidiecastcollector The first 2 mainline…

Hot Wheels – ’82 Nissan Skyline R30

What a choice of a casting!  I really don’t know if Mattel have the adult collector in mind when choosing these castings, but this is brilliant. JDM has made an entry into HW culture but often they are charactures with bad paint schemes aimed at the core market. What is delightful about this is that…

November’s Order

Well, I am now getting back into the swing of things again with TLV, so here is November’s order from Japan Booster: the Gloria Brougham is rather splendid.

Hot Wheels – McLaren P1 (2017 Then & Now)

Quick look at the recolour of this one for 2017. I think that this is a very smart colour scheme – not sure if it authentic, but is does look rather svelte. I totally forgot that I did pick up the 2015 release in that gorgeous ornage paint job – Which one do you prefer as…

Hot Wheels – 2017 Honda/Acura NSX

Opportunity in Poundland means that I can sometimes pick up cheap diecast. It is well documented that the Mattel situation in the UK is shite. They seem to be doing their best to stop the sale of such things. However, as I have mused before, Mattel can produce some blinders. The 2017 Honda NSX is…

Disney Pixar Cars: Jack DePost

Having just watched Cars 3, I am now starting to see quite a few models be added to peg space. So I will be having a look at these models on a on-going basis as the majority of them are stored in the UK and not with me. Going forward, where I think that one…
