Do you have a fix for scratched windows?

I picked up the Gulf McLaren F1 GTR this weekend but didn’t notice the deep scratch in the windshield until I opened it. Is there a fix for this, or would the easiest solution be to drill it and swap the windows with the mainline version?

I'm alive, and still diecasting! I'm alive, and still diecasting!

Howdy all! It’s been just over 11 months since I’ve posted any diecast. Crazy! My collecting has slowed down, and so has the photography and diorama building. But that’s what I wanted to share today, my most recent car diorama. I built this one over Christmas and promptly took it to work. So the only photos I have are…

Hey everyone! I haven’t been here much lately. Occasionally I’ll peruse for a few minutes and enjoy what you are posting, but I haven’t contributed anything in a long time.

Tarmac Works video

I don’t think I can post a link to it here, but if you check out Tarmac Works on facebook, they have a nice video showing a bit of their production. A lot of the work is done by hand! I just bought my first two cars from them, and they’re amazing. Go check it out!

I just love the color on these two!

This is one I’ve had for a while, but it’s still one of the jewels of my collection. The casting from Kyosho is perfect. I love the fact that it has the wing retracted. The complex curves are perfectly represented here. The detailing is spot-on. And that color!

PURPLE. Custom McLaren P1 PURPLE. Custom McLaren P1

This is a mere Hot Wheels, and the first one I’ve shown for Car Week. However, it’s purple, and it’s a car that no one else has since it’s one of my customs!

BLACK. Auto World MiJo Exclusive GT40 BLACK. Auto World MiJo Exclusive GT40

It’s beautiful. Heavy. Detailed. With gold wheels!

BLUE. Dusty, amazing blue. BLUE. Dusty, amazing blue.

This is the 2003 Subaru Impreza WRC driven by the Finnish team of Tommi Mäkinen and co-driver Kaj Lindström in Rally Great Britain.

WHITE. Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Am. WHITE. Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Am.

I don’t know much about this car, other than it’s beautiful and I had to add it to my collection. This is a 1/64 by Kyosho. It also came in red or black. I fell in love with the white version though.

Up until Friday I had planned on bringing my McLaren F1 GTR by Kyosho. Then I got my package from Taiwan, and everything changed.

Here are the Japanese cars from M2 that I’ve added to my collection. I know many of you have these along with most of the other cars in the first and second sets. These are the ones I really liked though. Enjoy my photos!

CM’s Rally Subaru. 1/64. I haven’t installed all the antennas yet. But I will! I just had to shoot something when I pulled it out.

I bought two new MiJo Exclusive castings, one from Greenlight and one from Johnny Lightning. I haven’t had a chance to take real photos yet as they just arrived yesterday, but I will eventually. So here are some awful phone pics. I couldn’t resist sharing them!
