Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

Thanks for the help. What should I search for on eBay? I would start by searching "photoetch hood pins" or "PE hood pins", also known as bonnet latches or dzus fasteners, and any permutation in between. Detail Master, Hobby Design, and a few others make them. Most importantly, get Microscale Krista...

Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

BBR Ferrari 512 BB LM: Unfortunately, as you can see in the second photo, it's missing a hood pin, which is nowhere to be found in the box or anywhere else. I'll be keeping the model, but that's kind of annoying. EDIT: I just noticed it's also missing the shifter. replace both hood pins so it looks...

Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

I use imgbb.com. You don't need an account. You just upload, then copy and paste the link. You can choose a thumbnail or full size. It shouldn't be too hard to find another. Question, and kind of off-topic: Do you know where one might find miscellaneous parts for the Hot Wheels 599XX? The seller rec...

Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

Well, I received a Hot Wheels Elite 599XX today, but unfortunately, it was broken. The hood and trunk lid were loose in the box, and both of the mirrors were broken. The tie-down wires were not secured. I am of course returning it. That sucks! Is there a replacement? Not from that seller, but there...

Classic. Love the wheels on this one!
It is really nice. I knew I wanted a Veyron, but not which one. I saw it listed on eBay, put it on the watchlist, and put in a last second bid. I'm glad I did. It's the Veyron I didn't know I wanted. :D

Re: Random Model Pic of the Day!

Uh... happy Halloween, I... guess? https://i.ibb.co/q9y9sSt/IMG-20201031-202702.jpg This is about as close to a Halloween-themed pic as I could get: My newly cleaned black F1 and the recently acquired orange Schuco Beetle. A sort of study in contrasts, which will be a theme in my collection when it ...

Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

Lovely add! I need to write a review... So many models with so little time! :shame: I really like it. I'm glad I went with red, and I actually like the interior too. That Beetle is a very very nice model. If you already haven't, consider buying the T1 samba bus as well. It's even better! I am plann...

Neat! How much was that piece?
$17 before shipping and taxes. However, with the eBay Bucks I had saved, I actually paid less than $10. :D I had to assemble it, though.

Re: Quality is constant disapointment. How do you deal with it?

I can tolerate some imperfections, whether that means inaccuracies in the design, or defects like chipped paint. I hate floating windshield wipers. There's just something about some defects that bothers me. The passenger door on the AUTOart Huayra I owned was a little misaligned. The "EB" decal on t...
