Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

You should be working for Hotwheels designing toys for them as yours are much better than a lot of theirs .

I have done a couple just not with that casting for the cab, those all started as the vintage Excalibur, Sampson 2, or King crunch monster trucks. I have pics I'll post in my Greenlight thread of the custom Greenlight pieces.

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

Nice detail job. These look more real soon as you put authentic colors on them. I have bought other people's custom jobs. I can't believe they do what they do and glue it back together while leaving the inside of the bed chrome or whatever the interior is. Makes all the difference when that is painted to match.

Like I said, I'm a sucker for built customs... if I like them. I just got this one for being unique. I buy some just to see what they did and this is one. I got it from loosecars.com*, so no package and it's not here yet. It seems to be coming from another country because they ask what currency. I never saw this color of camper top so I assume it is custom, although there was no mention of that

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

The lime green truck came in today. I was concerned the seller had glued the camper on backwards, but am happy to say it just sits on there with four tabs inside the bed. I now have the rounded end up front and there's a window/hatch on the back.

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

Look good. I wish Jada would have done more '72 Cheyennes. Now it's the Greenlights. I like the custom 4wds because they aren't monster trucks. Greenlight needs to make a 4wd chassis version. That open things up for swaps bigtime

None are my creations:

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

Nice job on both. I'd like to build a white GMC long wideside 2wd like my full scale one. I have a crapped out old Ertl GMC Fenderside donor. Just need to worth that grille or whole cab into a longbed 4wd conversion with realistic size tires.

Just playing with a silver marker. Tried to make a GMC front end on my 69 stepside.
