Shining the Light on Extraordinary Talent in the 1/64 Scale Custom Diecast Community… Today we spotlight the talents of one Muhamad Eko Setiawan
Welcome to another episode of Your Custom Hotwheels, the fortnightly feature post that isn’t about My Custom Hot Wheels, it’s about yours.
Today however is a little different as I wanted to pay homage to all the amazing customs I have seen since that utilise the deliciously dope and characteristically cute ‘Manga Tuner’ Casting which was introduced to the Hot Wheels mainline line-up earlier this year.
Today we reintroduce the insanely talented Irwan, aka @RoyaleSyndicate and share some of his amazing work with you. But sharing his work is easy, Instagram does this every day which is why I wanted to get into the mind of this creative genius and get some insights into how he goes about creating these insanely detailed 1:64 scale diecast customs.

Whether it’s a bigger/smaller engine, a roof rack/driving-lights/bull-bar, a flatbed/towing setup or just a random part that can be used as a diorama accessory the hope is that you will find a casting on this list that contains exactly what you need.
Today we shine the light on a fellow Australian customiser and a guy I have watched grow in leaps and bounds in a relatively short period of time. His name is Jade and he is not only a highly skilled customiser, he is also insanely creative. Add the fact that he’s a genuinely top bloke to the mix and you end up with a true customising triple threat…. in the best possible way of course. Let’s meet the man behind the customizing curtain….
