Feeling nostalgic Feeling nostalgic

I’m longing to take new photos of my models, but getting time to it is still a bit hard. At least I have thousands of old photos! On the last few days, I’m lusting for my RLC vintage trucks! So, enjoy these again with me!

I only tried customizing just a few times, but I can safely say this is my best job. A great casting made better by a metal polish.

Insane VW Golf GTi Mk1 in Lego Insane VW Golf GTi Mk1 in Lego

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!

Diecast Horror Story - The Flood Diecast Horror Story - The Flood

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:

Awesome news and a HAWL to match Awesome news and a HAWL to match

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!

Congratulations on one more completed orbit around the Sun!! Congratulations on one more completed orbit around the Sun!!

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!

Merry belated christmas!! Merry belated christmas!!

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.

LaLD crew, assemble! LaLD crew, assemble!

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.
