Hot Wheels Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 Custom

WOW it's been a while since I posted here (or have done any customs for that matter). Work has been keeping me sooooo busy. But I've got a lot of stuff in the queue to be finished and posted!! Starting with this Hot Wheels Mk7 Golf GTI that I made to give to a buddy of mine as a copy of his car.

Hot Wheels BMW 3.0 CSL Street Custom

Here's my take on one of the best recent HW releases, the BMW 3.0 CSL! These have been my favorite BMW model for as long as I can remember. They are just the ideal car to me, elegant styling, great performance and just an overall classiness that modern cars can't touch.

HW has done nothing but racing spec ones so far, and they've made some very nice ones... But I decided to see what I could do with a street version.. And I am absolutely thrilled with how it came out.

Hot Wheels Range Rover Classic

Here's another favorite customizing pasttime of mine, making HW products much nicer!! I've done a Range Rover like this before, but I sold it a while back. And one can never have too many fine old British cars in one's collection!

The Range Rover Classic is one of those vehicles that is just cool. Maybe not the most reliable thing in the world, but undeniably cool! I'd love to have one.

Matchbox Lesney Morris J2 Pickup Restoration

I'm back working on the cars I enjoy the most today! Bringing back old British bangers from the scrapyard. Today's project is a #60 Morris J2 Pickup. I'd love to see one of these in real life, it's such an interesting little truck.

Anyways onto my little Lesney one. Before:

Matchbox Mazda MX5 Miata ND Custom

The MX5 is one of my all time favorite cars, and I was so excited when Matchbox decided to make a replica of the latest version, the ND. I think the best color on these is graphite grey, so I made one!

Matchbox Range Rover Evoque Custom

Hey all, I'm back!! After a bit of a break, I am back to making customs again. I got a new job and made yet another move. But I am settled in for a good long time now hopefully. Just got a much bigger workbench for my apartment and am looking forward to firing up the customs again!

Starting with this Evoque. I've always thought these look quite good in white.
