Nice display box. :tu: Was it originally for golf balls?


The display cases are actually for shot glasses. I got them from Micheal's and then I redid the mounting on the back so I could put the Hot Wheels in them. They can hold up to 28 cars and are made out of pressed cardboard. If you're lucky the store will be doing a buy one get one free sale so you can pick up 2 for $25.

Yep, they are making the FR-S too. It's not out on pegs quite yet but I couldn't wait and got them off eBay.

Thanks! It actually started out as an AE86 (http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/2012/09/18/minicars-hot-wheels-x-jnc-toyota-ae86-corolla/) but I replaced the B pillar completely and used styrene and putty to make the boxflares, body lines and fixtures. Tomica unfortunately only makes the narrowbody version so I had to make my own widebody.

Very impressive. You had me fooled. I can see the rear hatch angle and wing look a little off (not much you can do about that), but other than that it looks spot on.

Much appreciated man. Its def challenging to get proportions exact, but I like the idea of working with what I got given the boxy 86.

Side note, I was going to paint it silver when I finish but now I'm tempted by the plum paint colour in your avatar. Coincidentally, the first and only Starquest I've spotted in the wild so far was also in that colour, and it seems the owner has the same name as you (borrowing a pic from Old Parked Cars, but its this exact car I saw in Washington)

First of the Celica castings that I have reworked. Two tone repaint and custom made decals. I also painted the rims white.
I thought this scheme (and number) was bit more fitting to a Toyota than a BRE scheme.

Here's my 1950's Japan Tin Friction delivery trucks, Made in Japan.
Not sure how many are in the set.
I think these are made by the Marx toy company.

Those are pretty sweet! Are just the backs tin, or is all of it? The cabs sort of look plastic in the pictures

I hope this fits as a nostalgic vehicle within the guidelines. I think it is right on the cusp but inside?
Just finished this one late yesterday. Repaint with custom “vintage” graphics.

Hello All,

I have just a couple of questions of interest that I would like to ask / be directed on...
1. When it says Nostalgic Cars is there a cut off date/year or does it move forward each time we enter a new year? I know at the start of this JNC Toys and Diecast thread there is a date of 1985; and
2. Is anyone interested (and where would it go) for trading/swapping Toys and diecast via this blogsite/thread?

Kind regards, Ben

Generally it's cars/trucks over 25 years old.

Not in this thread, no. There are "marketplace" forums for that sort of thing. :tu:
