Welcome to another guest post from a reader showcasing their collection. If you’d like a chance to be featured, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your story and hi-red images. Cheers!
My name is Luc Ballentine. I am 25-years-old and from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been collecting mainline Hot Wheels since 1994, but as of 2016 I stepped things up when I discovered the world of RLC and tons of Facebook groups!
Here are some photos of my display:
I have a few custom-made glass and acrylic cases & I used two Ikea tower cases for other loose stuff.
A local Marshall’s offers kitchen drawer organizers that work great for steps and filler for all that empty space usually problematic to these cases and 1/64 scale stuff!
I enjoy realism in my collection the most! I’m a huge fan of all sorts of different styles…everything from the quirky 1997 Patriot Computer to ’83 Silverados and ’55 Gassers.
My current favorite casting is the 1983 Chevy Silverado, which I am on a quest to collect and modify them all into 4x4s, [using] Friday Night Lights’ and Shop Truck donor Silverados so they all match with metal bases and Real Riders! I do the same with my Gassers. (this is hella impressive! – Bryan)
This hobby is definitely always interesting and there is never a dull moment it seems!
Despite his Silverado collection being loose and on display, Luc sent along a picture of his absolute favorite Silverado casting…
