Soon on Sixty Four Ever...

Hi dear diecast enthusiasts!

Certainly you don't know that, but I live in Paris, France,
and it's a real challenge to find some 1/64 diecast scale here...
In fact, it's even impossible!

Only 1/43, 1/87, 1/24, 1/18 or 3 inches
which are more toys than scale models...
That's why I'm chasing and buying all around the world.
Like you, there's a lot of fans everywhere,
let's share our passion!!!

So these last months, many items are finally arrived in my hands.
So we have a lot of catching up to do!!

became my first diorama.

A true object of desire, directly from Japan,
here with few GreenLight Muscle Shop Tools
and some Chevrolet Bel Air:
A 1957 by M2 Machines and a 1962 by Johnny Lightning...

 Different Johnny Lightning: 1969 Chevrolet Blazer,
The Fireball 500 a 1966 Plymouth Barracuda,
customized by George Barris,
1937 Ford Coupe, 1962 Lincoln Continental Convertible
and 1962 Chevy Bel Air.

 Some Lightning Brigade:
Willy's Jeep, WC54 Dodge Ambulance, 1937 Ford Coupe
and 1940 Ford Pickup.

Three nicely customized trucks from
the Pinder Circus sold in France by Altaya.

And that's not all!
Konami, Kyosho, M2 Machines, GreenLight, Minichamps,
the new Petit 64 Collection by Spark
and many others are on the way!
