Matchbox Volkswagen Thing

It is also known as Volkwasgen 181 'Kurrierwagon'. This car had a nice history but I will not elaborate on it. Well, I spotted this little diecast hanging around at a local hobby shop and decided to buy a few pieces of it as it is a beauty and a classic to me. Well, the yellow paint is not so well done but can't blame it due to yellow is a hard color to apply. Details are all painted and makes the 'Thing' looks better. It is a must for every Matchbox collector if you ask me.

Initial D AE86 (Customized by Elgee)

Well, I send an AE86 (Hotwheels) to Elgee , a local customizer which specialized in customizing 1/64 scale cars. Well, it took him quite some time and when he send back to me, I am really happy with the results. It's amazing that he can put alot of details in a small scale car model. Well, if you guys need his help, you all can follow the link on the right and click on 'Gee's Garage'.
Thanks again Elgee !

Tamiya 1/24 Honda City QQ.

This is a 1/24 scale model kit. It doesn't require any glue for assembly. So it makes the work kind of easy. Just snap and lock ! How easy is that! I build it two years ago, well how time flies !! The color choosen is pearl purple over red and the effect is quite nice if you ask me. The rear windows are tinted due to reason the masking tape problem that pull out the paint when you remove them.
Well, still I love this car as it's a cute small car... It's the first generation of the Honda City. How time flies, we now have the fourth generation !

Majorette Rally Cars Part 2

I am a big fan of rallies doesn't matter if it's a local scene rally or international rallies. They really abuse the car to the limits and prove how reliable these cars are. Majorette really do some good rally cars for 1/64 scales and I find them appealing although they lack interiors and finishing.
The ones I got are Peugeot 307 WRC, Citroen C2 Andros and C4 Citroen Sports Concept. Well, I need more.....!! So, I will look for more rally cars from Majorette in the future !

Hotwheels Pikes Peak Celica

This is 2008 version of the Toyota Pikes Peak Celica. Well, it's not a new casting and it had been released many times throughout the years. In my opinion, these two color variation for year 2008 is the best ever being released. Well, I painted the front lamps using Tamiya aluminum enamel color. Well, it does have an impact towards the looks of the model. Well, I admit I don't know much about Pikes Peak Rally but I do like this car...

Hotwheels Dodge Coronet Super Bee

Well, I don't know what sparks my interest towards this car model. Thus I decided to buy all 3 color variation. Well, the Dodge Coronet Super Bee was a limited-production muscle car back in the late sixties till the early seventies. It's based on the regular Dodge Coronet. Just enjoy the 3 color variation's in my collection.

Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift Cars

Nissan S15
Nissan 350z Veilside

Ford Mustang with Nissan Engine

Well, I got them real cheap from Steve, a friend from Canada. Thanks pal !
I don't know what scale they are but seems to be between 1/64 and 1/50. Anyway, they are well done for the scales and have openable hoods to reveal the engine inside it. Enjoy the photos.

Initial D Mazda RX-7 (FD3S)

I had always been a fan of Initial D. Spending a great amount of time and money on the arcades, buying the comic's (some only) and models. This is my first 1/24 Initial D model kit. It's from Fujimi. Well, it is quite decent to me. Although it had a generic chassis but overall it still looks great.!

Color is chrome yellow the decals are sealed under a clear coat. Well, some of you might find the panel lines are dark and I do think so. Maybe I shold tone them down. As it's too contrast with the yellow body color. The only thing I did was drilled holes for the side mirrors so I don't have to glued the side mirrors to the body and cause the paint to melt. So from one photo, you can see the side mirrors is retractable. (Thanks to zenlim for the idea).

I am building an AE86 for a friend and it's 60% complete. Soon after Chinese New Year, it will be completed !!!Enjoy !
