Last purchases of October

   Good morning to all of you guys! Unfortunately, as you may have seen in recent weeks I have not been able to update the site: I'm changing job and during the last weeks I had to focus only on this aspect of my professional career. Now that things are "bedded" I am ready to return to talk about diecast models: I decided to celebrate this return with 2 new purchases, one inspired by the cinema, one dictated by the heart. I'm talking about the Trauckster Wagon Queen (produced by Greenlight) used in the movie "National Lampoon's Vacantions" and the BMW Z1 (produced by Minichamps), spider car that has always fascinated me, with its angular lines but especially to the particularity of its retractable doors, feature never seen on other cars. Next week should already be at home, so it will not be long in presenting them as it should be! Have a nice weekend!

Lancia Delta S4 road version by AutoArt

   Finally, the work week is over, but before the weekend I wanted to show you another new model of my collection. New is not really the correct term for this model since I bought it six months ago, but since I never shown it, consider it like new. Today I want to show you the Lancia Delta S4 road version produced by AutoArt in metallic red color. The model does not refer to a model used on the cinema or on TV, but I bought it because have always been a fan of this car ever since, as a child my parents gave me a model of this car in scale 1/24 produced by Burago. Of course, the level of that model was very low, but it was enough to make me appreciate the lines of that car ... then the sporting exploits in the World Rally Championship did the rest! When earlier this year was presented dall'AutoArt the scale road version in 1/18, I felt the need to add it to my collection, exposing it near all the other most beautiful and most famous Lancia models. The model close to perfection: the painting is spectacular with those metallic reflections, every item in the car is done with great attention to detail (engine, interior, trim, etc.) I do not know if there is any among you loving Delta S4 but do not miss this masterpiece ... in the picture is beautiful, but live it even more! It's just a treat for the eyes! But now enjoy the pictures! Have a nice weekend!

"Romanzo Criminale" Lancia Fulvia Coupè HF

   The holidays are a distant memory, September has come almost to its half, then it's time to resume talking about modeling. Continuing what we started in August, I want to continue to show you some of my purchases in recent months: today it's the turn of Lancia Fulvia Coupè HF used by Dandi (Alessandro Roja) in the TV series "Romanzo Criminale". I have always loved this car, even more when I saw it was used on this Italian TV series. Okay, the car does not play a major role in history, but identifies perfectly the character of the protagonist who uses it and perfectly reflects the period of 70 years where the series is set. Loving this car, I could not take the opportunity to add it to my collection: I chose the model produced by AutoArt that, as you can see from the pictures, is incredibly detailed, both outside (car body, lights, etc.), both within (passenger compartment, engine, trunk, etc.). I honestly do not find flaws: in my personal scale rating, I'd give it a nice 10... together with the DeLorean (always produced by AutoArt) close to perfection! If you love this model so do not miss it: the prices start to rise and you risk losing a really cool model that surely will acquire prestige over the years. Now I leave to the pictures, have fun!

"The Persuaders" Ferrari Dino 246 GT

   It is almost the end of my holiday, so today you must took the last programmed post in which I show you another new model. Unlike the others I showed you a few days ago, this will suffer a heavy change in the next weeks, especially in the paint layer. To be more precise, it's the 1969 Ferrari Dino 246 GT produced by Anson and I want to make a replica of the car used by Tony Curtis in the TV series "The Persuaders." Of course, to do that, I'll have to completely repaint it in orange and will take advantage to add some details on it: I could also take the model produced by Hot Wheels Elite, but because I must completely change it I preferred to focus on a cheaper model, adding the ability to add some transkit to improve the final result. Of course the changes will begin in September and will document step by step as I have always done in the past. So stay tuned ... we will see some good!

"Smokey and The Bandit" Pontiac Trans Am by Greenlight

   Today we go on a cult: those unfamiliar with the Bandit? I guess you all know who I'm talking about! In this case, I'm talking about the second movie in the saga of "Smokey and the Bandit" and then today I will show the legendary 1980 Pontiac Trans Am led by Burt Reynolds. To be more precise it is the model produced by Greenlight Toys and I must admit that it is made quite well. Only negative relative to this model are the T-Tops, which unfortunately are fixed and it's not possible to remove them from the body, as it does on the Pontiac Trans Am produced by ERTL (but htis model is about the first movie). I recommend to buy it? Absolutely, but I must admit to being very biased ... I really love this version of the Pontiac Trans Am, ever since I was a child and I saw it in the movie "Rocky II" (though in that case it was a 1979 model) and then in front of this model I can forgive it some flaws! But now I leave you to the photos, enjoy with them!

"Velocità Massima" Lancia Delta HF by SunStar

   After a break dedicated to a Ferrari, we return to a model on the theme of cars used in movies and TV series. Today I will show the Lancia Delta HF Integrale used in the movie "Maximum Speed". The version that I propose you today is produced by SunStar and overall the model is not bad, but still has some flaws. The proportions and lines of the body are correct, the painting is well done (apart from the rest today it's hard to find the red version in my possession), but on the level of detail they could do a lot more. We start from the engine: bad ... devoid of any detail, is made with a single piece of molded plastic! Then we go to the interiors: in my case I had to re-paint the gray dashboard with a black paint. I have also taken measures to remake the decals relating to the dashboard instruments since even the original ones were made ill. The seats, then, had an absurd flaw: they moved back and forth as if we were in front of a car 2-door ... I then proceeded to block them immediately. Finally, the last defect concerned the height of the front wheels: originally the distance between the wheel and the wheel arch was much more pronounced, making almost seem the Delta a jeep! I proceeded to lower the height of the front sospesioni, applying a procedure similar to that which I used few years ago to lower the General Lee suspensions. To complete the changes, I then applied replicate plates used in the film: to complete it, I should also change the rims, but for now I could not find suitable ones. But the search continues! If you have any suggestions, do your thing!

Ferrari F50 by Hot Wheels Elite

   It just ended mid-August and I hope you rested and enjoy it! But now, after taking a little sun and I did a little swim at the beach, you have to go back to talk about modeling. So today I want to show you the Ferrari F50 produced by Hot Wheels I purchased a few months ago. As surely remember, I am not a great lover of this Ferrari, but having in the collection the F40, the Enzo and the LaFerrari seemed obvious also buy this model. As you can see from the pictures it is the Elite version, more detailed than the basic version: the realization is not bad at all, although in my view seems a Burago version of a quality a little higher. I do not know if my opinion is little not objective because I do not particularly like the F50, but certain details like the wheels, the engine and the interior in my opinion could be more detailed. It is certain, however, that it is a good model, and together with the other Ferrari definitely makes its scene! But now, enjoy the pictures!
