The Suzuki Swift Rally Car Night Version by Tomica

by Tomica Limited hehehe!!!

I couldn't resist doing this... it has become one of my favorites in my small scale rally collection!

simple mods was all it needed... painted foglamps w/ rhinestones, painted alloy wheels and painted rollcage, and it looks great! This is my favorite at the moment. :-)

taking a hairpin curve...

99' WRC New Zealand Rally Diorama

Finally made it, my very own 1:43scale diorama for one of my evolution rally car!

enjoy the pics!

placing the diorama in a frame makes it more presentable like the ones sold in some hobby sites for $70 each w/o the car.

A big thanks to my friend Jovy for finally bagging this one for my htf collection of street cars I grew up seeing in the streets of Manila!

A Realtoy Subaru Impreza Custom

My friend Jong got me this casting from Realtoy, this one was lacking in my Subaru collection (the street version). Anyway, I got only one question... what was Realtoy smokin' when they made this diecast?

I really wonder?

the original version in neon paint and blinged out pizza wheels as my friend Gary said! hehe!

re-paint and some new wheels for this baby!

Rally Diorama 1:43 to 1:64 scale

Tried making a hairpin section from a Rally stage, intended for my 1:43 evos, but i think its suits the 1:64 scaled cars better.

Tommi Makinen attacks the hairpin curve...

and some of my 1:64 rally cars...

some uphill climb...

My Only Hotwheels Ferrari FXX Custom( Enzo Base)

It was almost 2 years ago when my friend Third commissioned me to make him a Ferrari FXX in 1:64 scale, because at that time, Mattel and Kyosho didn't have a casting available yet. The nearest casting to the FXX then was using a Hotwheels Ferrari Enzo as base car.

I did fabricate the whole rear wing and the front lip, removed the lights also...
the only problem for me back then was extending the whole rear part of the car.
And I never did. So we stuck with the plan to just leave the rear as is, not extending the back like the original FXX. The wheels came form a Jada Ford GT.

and so here is the outcome...

Good thing Mattel and Kyosho already came up with these
because this FXX of mine was really a difficult one to do hehe!
