I have a thing for two-seat aircraft, especially conversions from one-seaters. Thankfully, while many companies ignore the trainer variants of so many planes, Matchbox did not! A perfect example of that is the 2-in-1 1/72 kit of the Hawker Hunter T.7/FGA.9. While it may be old and simple, it’s also somewhat rare, and it can […]

In this case, the question is “Which Hot Wheels is this?” Given the depth of HotWheels collectors’ knowledge, and with the power of the internet, solving this query should have been a 1-hour-at-max undertaking.

Get ready to go deep behind the Berlin Wall for this WarPac chestnut! It’s on the Out of Box Reviews page! Note: Some sources say this is the VEB Plasticart 1/87 […]

That means mating the interior, body and chassis into one glorious, beige testament to world-car engineering! I guled the windows in with some CA on the bars that go across the roof and then put some […]
