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 […]

Hot Wheels, Ignition Models, Kyosho, Majorette, Mini GT, Tarmac Works, Tomica Limited Vintage

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