Just saw this on The Brother’s Brick: This Lego Mk.I GTi is so awesome!!! It’s crammed full of nifty details, as using a tiny lego microphone as the golf-ball gear stick. Joe Perez, the builder, went as far as recreating the slim red border on the grille!
Fresh news from The Brother’s Brick: Lego just teased a Bugatti Chiron Technic set:
I was greeted with sad news this morning. In two days it rained more than what was expected for the entire month in Florianópolis, southern Brazil, and my lab was flooded. I had a few models there, temporally on a low drawer, and this is how I found them:
I’ve got an excellent reason to jump into the Tarmac Works bandwagon, with an awesome BMW M3 E30 just like the one in the photo below. I’ve got my first full scientific paper accepted for publication!
As an astronomer, there’s nothing special about the “new year” on Earth orbit. Bur, heck, we’re human too! So here’s my belated part for the celebration!
Sorry for the recent absence, I was pretty much all the time at the kitchen, haha. I believe this photo represents a good part of us at this December 26th, after stuffing our stomachs with so much delicious food.
I recently found out Alfa Romeo had an amazing little van, so I obviously ran to the Google oracle to see if there were diecast models of it. I’m not disappointed. These are so cute, I want them all!
Slowly, but steadily, the Altaya Lendas Brasileiras do Automobilismo (Brazilian Motorsports Legends) collection is getting to the newstands on my state. So I finally grabbed this awesome Brabham, driven by José Carlos Pace.
Completely unrelated to diecast, but do you like short horror stories? If so, I want your help! I had an idea and wrote a short (2000 words) horror story, and I want your feedback on it. More after the jump.
It’s no secret that I love the Super Van. Simplicity is often the recipe for success, and if this model wasn’t as good as I think it is it wouldn’t be in HW’s line since 1975. This highly detailed casting was part of the Delivery series from some years ago.
I may had stretched the theme days rule a bit too far, but I guess it’s okay for this awesome MBX Best of the World Dodge pickup. The tampos, the wheels, the colors, everything’s so good about this casting!
Back in 2010 when I saw on the internet this Ferrari 288 GTO was part of the Phil’s Garage series, I looked everywhere, but couldn’t find it. It was only on a collector’s meeting that I finally grabbed this grail. And what a grab! For me, it’s on par with some of the most detailed HW 100% models, probably one of the…
Often, delivery vans are boring, but this ‘55 Chevy Panel from the 2010 series Hot Wheels delivery sure brings the party in the back, with a wicked diecast motorbike!
A true workhorse, when Chevrolet designed this they probably hadn’t the looks as their first priority. They achieved, however, a true gem of a design in form of this 70's stepside truck, marvelously recreated by Matchbox in a period correct color combo. What a great cast!
This may not be the most detailed, the most expensive or the rarer diecast F40, but for me it’s the best. In my 9th birthday (almost 18 years ago), in 1999, my parents gave me some diecast models, and this was the beginning of my collection. Among these cherished models, this sweet Ferrari F40, one of my favorites…
Part of the Auction Block series, apparently this ‘69 Chevy C10 fetched high numbers in the Barett & Jackson auction house. I have this model for several years, but I think I’ve never showcased it here.
Greenlight absolutely nailed this one, down to the very license plate! The only thing missing on this incredible model are the infinite hubcaps.
For me, one of the best castings ever made by Matchbox. The colors, the tampos, everything’s perfect! Plus, what could possibly go wrong with an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA?
Let us let our imagination run wild: Which special series would never get approved by Mattel? Some suggestions after the jump.
Saw this today on my university parking lot. Seems legit to me.
