Greenlight 1969 Mustang Mach1

Thought I'd have some fun today and setup one of my pics as a fake magazine cover.   This fantastic looking Ivy bronze coloured 69 Mustang Mach1 is from Greenlight.

Greenlight 1965 Ford Galaxie 500

Today's car is a spectacular blue 1965 Galaxie 500 from Greenlight's Route 66 Box set.  The whitewalls are a nice touch and go nicely with the white interior.  This little beauty is flawless.

M2 Machines 1954 Mercury Sun Valley

I bought five M2 Machines from a great seller at Swifty's Garage. I was not familiar with the brand so just opted to get a few to check them out. The models were originally issued back in 2008 or 2009, so these are not new on the market but they are new to me.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive these last week. They are incredible. The dual paint finish is excellent and the amount of details on the cars are extraordinary.

 While most 1:64 scale diecast cars have about ten different parts in their construction, I think I read somewhere that an M2 car can be comprised of nearly forty different pieces. Build quality is excellent and they look amazing.

 My pictures of this fantastic 1954 Mercury Sun Valley just do not do this model justice.  Don't forget to click on the pics to see the larger images.  You won't be disappointed.

Here's some more information about M2 Machines.

Tomica Subaru R1

In September 2010, I spent a couple of weeks visiting Tokyo Japan.  While wandering around the Ometosando neighbourhood one day, I discovered that Kiddyland, a popular toy store, had moved to a new location.  As part of their re-opening celebration, they gave away a free Tomica subaru car to anyone that wanted one.  It came in a cool little box which indicates it is model #111 and is 1/56 scale, although it seems smaller than that. 

The subaru badging on the front and rear of the Tomica car is a nice touch. Looks like the real car is a gas miser and probably drives and parks easily in the narrow japanese streets.  Would you drive a little car like this in real life?
