My first Mod try

First time I tried to modify my die-cast. Posted it on the DCPH website and got some points on how to do it right the next time.

The project

Stripped down to pieces

After 2 coats

The finished product

Paint is kinda rough and I can't get to the small gaps that's why there is till some red paint that shows. But hopefully with more pactice I'll get it right.

KITT (The New Knightrider)

KITT has a new look. Part of the new Knight Rider movie and TV series. And know it's driven my Michael Knight's very own son with the voice of Val Kilmer.

Old KITT, a 1982 Pontiac Firebird TransAm.

The new KITT, a Shelby GT500 KR

Pure American Muscle at its finest. The newer version of Gone in 60 Seconds "Eleanor".

Die-cast models of these 2 will surely be on my Christmas Wishlist.

Gone in 60 Seconds "Eleanor"

Got this last night from Best Toys. A Shelby Mustang GT500. Made by Jada Toys. The model used in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds or more popularly known as "Eleanor". The one that was used by Nicolas Cage to fly over the heavy bridge traffic.

I really wanted to have one of these that's why when I saw it the other night I didn't hesitate to buy it.

The actual replica :

Here's mine :
