Well, the facelift of the Focus was in 2014 so it should be pretty irrelevant if the model is a "2016" or "2018", shouldn't it? :think:

I just rearranged my showcases once more, as I wrote I did some wheeler dealering which means many compartments were either empty-ish or too full. Additionally, instead of having the models a bit angled, but in the same angle as all the others within the compartment I put them in a semicircle-ish manner to change the appearance a bit. In the 1:12 showcase there are only BMW M3s with their respective 1:18 "Mini-Me's", that way I was able to rearrange the 3-series showcases as well. I put the hypercars together into one showcase so one showcase is now filled with only Lamborghinis, the vertical showcase with the all-white Porsche 911s on the right contains only 911 GT3 Cup/R/RSR Plain Body models now.

The 2018 has black roof, rear spoiler and side mirrors.

Previous years all that was body colour.

Pfft, get a spray can of black, mask the model properly, you can do that yourself and you have a 1:18 model of your car. ;)

OH. MY. GOD.

Was just at Target buying some last minute things for my trip. Was planning to run in and out, but one of the items was out of stock on the shelves and an employee had me walk with him to the back. On the way back I decided to walk though the Hot Wheels aisle...... and.....



Yes. Very yes.

Also a line green Focus RS because also yes.

These are not fancy or anything but I would really love to know why walgreens seems to specifically make diecasts for me.

Like really. An RSI beetle.

Hopefully they will eventually have my Exact Fiat given they had my Exact Beetle at one point too.

I've been buying a fair amount of Hot Wheels lately, mostly the weird/creative stuff. Never did get into HW collecting, still don't plan to, but the odd one here and there is fun. :)

I just spent an amount of money on a 1:18 model car which could buy a 1:1 car. :ph34r: Admittedly, it certainly wouldn't be new and it would be beaten up, but it still could drive you, other people and luggage from A to B which a 1:18 model car can't...

Translated: I just bought a CMC Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman 6-door, but when you look at the amount of details and what amount of work has been put in you don't wonder anymore...

The model consists of more than 1230 parts and yes, you can unscrew the wheels with tiny hex bolts, the second row of seats can be folded up into a crevice below the pane of glass of the partition between drivers and passengers area, the sun visors and the center armrest of the rear bench are movable, the spare wheel is removable, can be fitted to any of the four corners and it has it's own compartment, all the grilles are photo etched, there are tiny springs replicating the springs of the bonnet and the hinges are accurately modeled.
