My latest creation, a ‘Manga Tuner’ inspired Cartoon custom of the now infamous (and stupidly expensive) RLC 55 Gasser aka ‘The Candy Striper’ came out rather well (even if I do say so myself).
Here’s the story of how I downloaded and played Candy Crush and got it all so very wrong (or did I get it oh so right? -insert twilight zone music- )
Building Nemo from a Pez Dispenser and a Hot Wheels Kool Kombi casting was the easy part. It was FINDING the time to make NEMO that was hardest. This article also includes an introduction to the ultimate guide to working with two=part epoxy putty and modelling resin.
Had fun turning a Hot Wheels Volkswagen T2 pickup and a Disney Cars Mini Racers Lightning McQueen into Mini McQueen and Volks McWagen. The customs turned out quite nice but it wasn’t until @ChadEMartinPhotography turned his camera onto them that they really popped! KACHOW indeed.

It has also just occurred to me that all three of these shiny purple customs are of European descent – and if you know your car brands will realise that in fact all three brands are owned by Volkswagen AG – which itself is majority owned by the Porsche family. So it seems that no matter how far you travel in these European automotive circles, you always end up back where you Stuttgarted 😉
I wasn’t sure whether to call this the Dairy Milk Delight or the Cocoa Kombi but decided to stick with the first one. That being said it is highly likely that at some stage through this article I will change my mind and decide to call it … something completely different again!
