Hot Works Racing Factory is Rad.

Japan Booster Auctions
It's the little things.

I'm a diecast nerd.  I started Lamley as a place to post photographs of 1/64 diecast cars, and I sure as shit enjoy doing it.  I still get a smile on my face when a particular shot just comes out perfectly.  Right angle, right light, and definitely the right model.

So shooting these Hot Works models provided a first for me.  1/64 models with the wheels turned.  That's it.  Wheels turned.  And I was giddy.  Like I said, it's the little things.

But damn:




So yeah, Hot Works models have front wheels that turn.  It is a cool feature, and well thought out considering these models are all replicas of drift cars.  These models were released in Asia a few years ago, and were off my radar.  One, because it is hard to keep up with diecast out of Asia, and two, I wouldn't call myself a drift aficionado.  But wow, these are cool.


Our friends at Japan Booster have added a few to their store, and are available at auction now:

And that is where the two red S15's came from.  The others came from my friend Mon Rayos of the DCPH - Diecast Collectors of the Philippines, who was very kind to send some over.  And man these are cool.  Drift fans?  No brainer.  Diecast fans?  Seriously a no brainer as well.

     

I might have to get a few more and add them to my growing collection of 1/64 race cars, mainly from Asia (Kyosho, TLV, etc).  You, because turning wheels.

  3. I guess I don't see what these do that TLV doesn't do equally well (or better). Yes, turning wheels, ok, but beyond that...? Not a knock, these look very good, but still

  5. John,

    People over the age of 18 shouldn't use the expression "rad". 😉

    1. Oh yes we should! It's our generation's word! Not using it would be gnarly.
