Last Updates: January, 7 2023!!

I do not sell these models. This site is only dedicated to my private collection.




News for 2023!

I haven't written anything on this blog for more than a year, not due to a decrease in my passion for diecast modeling (indeed, the collection has grown even more!) but because 2022 saw me entirely dedicated to the purchase and renovation of the our new home. In this new house, the space at my disposal is enormous (an entire floor in the attic) and I will soon show you the new configuration of my model car collection. For now, I'll leave you with a simple photo that shows the "before" and "after" of what was the room that hosted me, my passions and above all my collection for 9 years. I also take the opportunity to wish you a happy 2023 with the hope of reviving the pages of this blog properly!

Happy Halloween with Christine!

Finally, after changing the layout of the site throughout the month of October, we have come to celebrate Halloween. This year I thought about making a short video, using one of the first models I bought at the beginning of my collection and one of the last that arrived just a month ago: Christine! Enjoy this video and celebrate Halloween in the scariest way, perhaps enjoying the wonderful John Carpenter's film!

E.R. Locations at Warner Bros Studios

It's been some time since I wanted to come back to offer you other articles on the locations used in the films and TV series we are most fond of and having made some trips to the United States in recent years I have a lot of material to show you. It is therefore with great pleasure that today I will present another part of Warner Bros Studios (more or less close to the New York set area) which has been used for 15 years as the main location of the TV series "E.R.", namely the main building of the County General Hospital of Chicago. But let's not waste any more time: click on the map below and immerse yourself again in the most famous emergency room on TV!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 7

We have finally arrived at the end of this last model that I customized! In fact, I managed to complete Sheriff Cletus T. Necessary's car from the movie "Stand On It": I removed the original Ford Crown Victoria wheels and replaced them with a correct set of wheels (from a 1969 Dodge Charger produced from Maisto) by painting them in matt black. The final effect is now perfect and below you can then see the finished model in all its glory.
In the next few days I will show it to you together with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat used by John Schneider (Duke Marietta). Enjoy and have a good start to the week!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 6

We are almost running out of this custom model: in fact today it's time to show you the car with all the details repositioned on the body, but also the painted resin dashboard that my friend Roberto gave me some months ago (in the Links section you will also find the link to his modeling site). The next step will be to find more suitable rims similar to the iron ones used in the film. So do not miss the next episode: you can enjoy the Ford Crown Victoria finally completed! Have a nice week!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 5

A few days late, but here I am introducing you to some other updates made on the Sheriff's car from the movie "Stand On It". As you can see from the pictures, I modified the front bumper by making a cut just like on the real car. At that point I painted it with the same light blue color and I applied it to the body. Finally, I created the decals with the Sheriff's logo (using a photo of Dion Baia) to be applied on the front doors and I reassembled all the doors on the body, of course all except that of the driver which, as in the film, is torn off by a truck driver and placed in the rear seats as evidence of the crime.
Next week I will publish the pictures of the car with all the details reassembled: a few more days and then you can finally see this model completed. See you soon and have a good weekend!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 4

Day by day, the Ford Crown Victoria is increasingly resembling the real model used in the movie "Stand On It" and its sequel "Poker Run" due out later this year. As you can see from the images, I proceeded to create the dent on the front left fender and of course the whole body was painted with a blue/light blue shade. The next changes will affect the bumpers, rims, dashboard and decals on the front.
Now enjoy the photos and don't miss the next episodes of this series!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 3

As promised, here's the fun part: cutting the roof! When I am about to make these changes I am always a bit tense because if you are wrong you can not go back, but I must say that now I'm getting carried away and in fact I was not wrong! After disassembling the entire model, I proceeded to cut the roof pillars with the Dremmel in exactly the same points as we saw in the movie "Stand On It". I then tried to do some setup tests by also removing the driver's door and I would say that the car begins to look more and more like the one used by Sheriff Cletus T. Necessary and his son Sonny.
The next step will be to paint the car in a shade of blue/azure identical to that used in the film. Come back to visit the site because in a few days you will see the new look of this Ford Crown Victoria!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 2

New changes on the Ford Crown Victoria from the movie "Stand On It". This time I removed all the external details (lights, mirrors, handles, etc.), all the internal door panels and I removed the pad printing on the sides of the body. In fact, I could have done it only on the doors (since they will be the only parts to remain white and I didn't want to repaint them) but while I was there I preferred to do it also on the fenders to do a more complete and precise job.
The next step will be to cut the roof, so always stay around and by the middle of next week you will surely see the final "shapes" of this car!
