As is the Custom: My faves from the week...

If you remember, a week ago I was in Denver attending the Yves Saint Laurent retrospective at the Denver Art Museum.  And yes, I spent my whole morning looking at women's clothes.  I am not a fashion designer, but I definitely appreciated the show and the immense talent of YSL.

The point is, when you look at the work of someone who is really good at what they do, it is inspiring.  That can easily be said about the amazing diecast customizers out there.  I have already featured the work of "Steady Hands" Franklin2700, who loves to take what HW and MB were doing and making them better by adding amazing detail.  And there is more of his stuff to come.  Whether it is detailing, wheel swaps, enhancements, or pure creations of scratch, I am always amazed at the work of many of the customizers I come across.

So starting now, every weekend I will try and highlight some of the best customs I saw in my perusal through diecast sites, forums and blogs.  And if you are customizer, send photos of your stuff, and maybe you will see it on the blog.
