New Die Cast

M2 VW Bus WreckerHaven’t picked up any new die cast for a few weeks, but saw this little beauty at Hobby Lobby the other day and couldn’t resist. This is a very nicely detailed M2 VW Bus Wrecker. It’s a nice addition to the collection!

I’ll be starting on a 1:24 scale VW Beetle model in the near future. I want to do the model to hone my air brushing skills and work with different mediums. This custom truck was more of a filler to try a new rust/weathering technique. Overall, I’m pleased with the outcome, but it’s nothing special. I look forward to doing more of these over the winter months, but this will be the last for a little while.

I had to take a few days to step back and rethink what direction that I wanted to go with it. I’m still not convinced that this is what I had intended to accomplish when I started this custom, but in the end, I did complete a new custom, used new medium and created something original. That’s what I had intended to do from the beginning. It’s certainly not my favorite custom, but it was fun and I learned some things along the way. I hope that you enjoy the video, be sure to like and subscribe for future updates. The next custom is just around the corner.

First my drill bit slipped off the pillar and I drilled through the base, I broke my drill bit off in the pillar when I was drilling it out to tap it, the first attempt at paint turned out horribly, so I decided to start over! Even from the beginning, I wasn’t sure what direction I was going to go with this one. I wanted to try to incorporate a new medium into this project so I decided to use poly styrene. After stepping away for a few days and giving it more thought, I’ve got a better idea of where I’m going with this one. The video below documents my failed first attempt. Part II will be available shortly and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprise at the outcome.

Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt Found

Super Treasure Hunt '69 Corvette RacerWe were recently roaming the aisles of our local box store and came across this little treasure on the pegs. It’s been years since we found a Treasure Hunt on the pegs, so we were both surprise when we came across this Hot Wheels ’69 Corvette Racer Super Treasure Hunt hanging on the pegs. It was a great find and we shared the same excitement as we did when we found our first treasure hunt many, many years ago.

Out of the blisterpack, this is a really cool car that looks great just as it is. I just wanted to change it up a bit and give it a little more detail. I’m very pleased with the way that it turned out, check out the video and be sure to give it a thumbs up if you like it!

Unlike the previous custom using this casting, I removed the bed rails on this one and made my own bed using card stock. The wheels aren’t the wheels that came on this custom, they’re spares that I had floating around and the center caps are made using the heads of nails. This one was a lot of fun and is probably in my top 3 of favorites. More details are included in the video. If you enjoy the video or find it useful, please be sure to give it a “like”. More customs in the near future!
