Building a 1:64 Kyosho Ferrari 575 GTC

I’d always wondered how easy it was to put together a 1:64 Kyosho Ferrari and I wasn’t sure whether a kit model would hit the same heights as the pre-assembled ones. When a Ferrari 575 GTC came up for sale for a good price, I decided it was time to find out.

That left the No.36 Formula 5000 as the only single-seater in the lineup, but some of the best Matchbox F1 cars were still to come

Matchbox Formula 1 grid walk, Part 1: 1950s-1970s

I began writing this article with the intention of covering Matchbox’s Formula 1 history, based on cars in my collection. The more I dug into the topic, the more there was to say, so I’m splitting the story into two parts. This is Part 1 and covers the 1950s, 60s and 70s, from the Maserati 4CLT to the Team Matchbox

Those 70’s colors

As usual, it started with a vague idea of a theme, which was in this case citrus inspired colors when looking at my Kyosho collection. One may say that I often share my Kyosho collection, and many posts are Kyosho related, but I must admit it is still today the largest part of my collection […]

Showcase: Kyosho 1/64 European Cars

Right below my video set up lies a drawer full of Kyosho models.  I haven’t featured them a lot lately, but it seemed like the right time to pull them out. Kyosho hasn’t been as prolific with their 1/64 lately, but it doesn’t mean there are plenty of models out there to pursue.  I have […]

There has been a TON of Nissan GT-R released in 1/64. None of them can top Ignition Model’s offering.

Earlier this century, […]
