Shining the Light on Extraordinary Talent in the 1/64 Scale Custom Diecast Community…
Today we shine the spotlight on a customiser who I came to find through the previous Manga Tuner special that was published a few weeks back (here it is here) if you want to see some tooned deliciousness beyond what Muhamad has created below)
Muhamad aka @CamDiecastOriginal had some amazing Manga Tooned inspired customs that were included in the above feature and as such I reached out to see if he was interested in featuring more of his work here on the pages of MCH. The rest as they say is history… or present as it were :p
Now let’s settle in and get comfortable while we enjoy the customs from and learn a little more about the man behind the @camdiecastoriginal Instagram handle.
