Matchbox VW Transporter 50th Anniversary Wheel Swap

Hey everybody. This isn't quite a proper custom, just a little wheel swap. I bought a lot of premium series HW and MBXs a year or so ago that were mint, but just missing wheels. I've been slowly adding wheels as I obtain appropriate ones. This morning I did a nice VW Transporter.

Matchbox Routemaster Bus 60th Anniversary Series CHASE MODEL

So one of my "Holy Grails" of diecast collecting arrived in the mail today. I was never able to find one of these back in 2013 when this series was out, and have wanted one every since. And today is the day!! It's a stunning model, love the "spectraflame" look of the paint and the greatly detailed tampos. If you don't have this one in your collection, do yourself a favor and spent the $20 or so and grab one.

Matchbox Peugeot 205 Turbo Custom

Hey guys! We are back from a little diecast break. I recently bought a parts car for my Volvo, so I've been spending most of my free time in the garage playing with big toys haha.

But I'm back and have tackled a lovely little French hot hatch from Peugeot. I have loved the 205 since I was a kid, and have wanted to customize one for ages! This casting is a bit hard to come by in the states, but I happened across one in a cheap ebay junk lot.

Getting stripped down ready for paint, and some new wheels and tires

I'm thrilled with how it came out! Not perfect (as so few of my projects are), but pretty darn nice,

With some French friends from my collection:
