Welcome to what has to be the most delayed episode of Your Custom Hotwheels ever! I know I’ve been slack of late but I’m here now so quit your whining! :p
The Game Has Changed – But the Rules are the Same
One thing I can say is that it has been incredible to see the caliber of work that is now coming through Instagram and Facebook recently. The game truly has changed and with the addition of 3D printed parts and guys scratch building everything (I see you there Joel) the days of basic wheel swaps seem lost to us. While this may be the case, the rules of said game have definitely not changed and Your Custom Hotwheels will always be a section created for the people, by the people. Yes I will always continue to share the most incredible works from the top builders, but I will also include basic wheel swaps and repaint customs that I find appealing. This is because we all started somewhere and Your Custom Hotwheels is about including EVERYBODY IN THE GAME – regardless of what level you are at.
This also seems like the perfect time to send a quick shout out to Joel aka @diecast_dxb for consistently raising the bar and inspiring the rest of us to reach further and further out of our own comfort zones. I also want to take this moment to send a quick screw you to Joel for making us all look so damn bad. In fact I made this meme to celebrate the frustrating brilliance that is mr @Diecast_dxb :p
Stay tuned for an upcoming customiser spotlight special (follow up) featuring Joel and some of his mind blowing scratch built creations.
Your Custom Hot Wheels – Episode 25
Actually today I want to give you a huge thank you to one of my loyal readers, one Rayyan Rehman who kindly offered to help in any way he could. I asked me young apprentice if he could put together a compilation of customs from Instagram using a combination of the #mycustomhotwheels hashtag and his own personal preferences. Looking at the collection he sent through I can see that he is a man of taste (with a slight preference for JDM over Muscle) and although a fair few of these customs are not new to the pages of MCH, I for one am not complaining about seeing them again :p
Now let’s dive in to today’s YCH feature post…
