Calsonic 350Z

After such a long search..i got it! not that its very hard to find but the prices set for it are always high and ridiculous...luckily found it at amcorp at a good price. Before i was aiming for the Tomica Limited version but that was pure impossible now so this one will do. Actually, this one is even better IMO. Enjoy the pics!

Then i found out that there is actually a variant for this car..mine was a release from 2006 while the other one is from 2004..the one in 2004 has decals at the tires but lack the windscreen decals.

New Speed Machines Additions!

It has been quite a while since my last Speed Machine post..not that there is rarely restock but the thing is i rarely buy variations..i prefer having one variant that looks the best compare to other variants.
anyway these are what came during the 7E sales last month (year) lol

This is the second variation i have..this version imo looks even better than the first one..
like it even more because it follows the theme of the original 1996 Mclaren GTR prototype

Custom Cars

Car customizing is becoming popular among collectors nowadays.
since the manufacturing cost is getting higher every year..there are less and less tampo and details given in the original design of the cars sold in the market..thus customizing is the best option to get the variants and designs we collectors like most.
below are some custom cars that i had my friend Andrew@cham did for me..they are quite cool.

 it is hard to find the red color of this car, i asked for it to be repainted in red

i got this from amcorp in a very bad condition. straight away sent it for restoration.

love the blancpain gallardo..luckily hot wheels came out with the casting 

another car that is not available in red so i have it repainted..
i like the normal red that most FE Ferraris have more though :P

some brands like hotwheels, tomica and even fastlanes have really good and accurate castings but sometimes the lack of details put me off from buying..customizing keeps the hobby alive and fun.
the only things hindering me from starting this new venture are the lack of time and tools.
hopefully soon i'll be able to join the fun too :)
