It’s the little things.
I’m a diecast nerd. I started Lamley as a place to post photographs of 1/64 diecast cars, and I sure as shit enjoy doing it. I still get a smile on my face when a particular shot just comes out perfectly. Right angle, right light, and definitely the right model.
So shooting these Hot Works models provided a first for me. 1/64 models with the wheels turned. That’s it. Wheels turned. And I was giddy. Like I said, it’s the little things.
So yeah, Hot Works models have front wheels that turn. It is a cool feature, and well thought out considering these models are all replicas of drift cars. These models were released in Asia a few years ago, and were off my radar. One, because it is hard to keep up with diecast out of Asia, and two, I wouldn’t call myself a drift aficionado. But wow, these are cool.
Our friends at Japan Booster have added a few to their store, and are available at auction now:
And that is where the two red S15’s came from. The others came from my friend Mon Rayos of the DCPH – Diecast Collectors of the Philippines, who was very kind to send some over. And man these are cool. Drift fans? No brainer. Diecast fans? Seriously a no brainer as well.
I might have to get a few more and add them to my growing collection of 1/64 race cars, mainly from Asia (Kyosho, TLV, etc). You, because turning wheels.

Collectable Diecast when they were in Irwindale, CA. sold these for about $6.00. I have 5. Should have bought extras.
Beautiful photography as always.
Love reading every article you write.
I guess I don't see what these do that TLV doesn't do equally well (or better). Yes, turning wheels, ok, but beyond that…? Not a knock, these look very good, but still
dammit lambert STOP HYPYING MY WISHLISTS, LOOK WHAT HAVE YOU DONE I CANT GET THEM ON EBAY AT REASONABLE PRICE ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
………….and nice photo as usual anyway, sorry.
Haha, I have a wish list so large that it would take my whole life to get enough money for all of the things I want.
People over the age of 18 shouldn't use the expression “rad”. 😉
Oh yes we should! It's our generation's word! Not using it would be gnarly.
