The build log for the S13 is posted! If you didn't catch it at The Lamley Group's site (where they were kind enough to let me write about my build process), its also available here.

Johnny Lightning Nissan 240SX - Results

It's late and I don't feel like typing any more about this project to do a build log, lol. Here's some detail shots for now:

edit: looks like it didn't upload in full size...

Prepare yourselves for a real cool story, bros.

Today I hit up a Walmart location (one that I usually go to but always come out empty handed) because I was passing thru the area and had time to kill. I was pretty happy to have found one of these, after weeks of seeing the same F case scraps:

Couldn't find the Tahitian Green EF Civic from the same case, but I'm pretty sure these int'l shortcard mixes aren't the same as regular stuff. Almost every time there's some desirable/recognizable cars missing when it's clear the whole case has been pegged very recently (maybe I'm just giving the store the benefit of the doubt when it comes to employee hookups...)

A couple hours later on my way to dinner, I run into a blue 620 I've seen on the streets on several occasions and even on Craigslist. Clearly I didn't squander the photo opp.

Hot Wheels Honda EF Civic to Wagon conversion update

After spending 2 days working on the wagon, most of the primer I applied last time was gone and it was ridiculously hard to see how the surface was like. So I sprayed another coat and I was surprised to see it isn't too far off from being in the final stages:

Some rough edges to clean up and some spots to fill with putty, and then it should be on its way to being finished...

(As sort of a throwback Thursday type of deal, here's how it started off):

JNC's April Fools?

Hey everyone!

My mind was and is still shattered at how my toy Starion managed to find its way onto the Japanese Nostalgic Car website. As corny as it sounds, being featured or even mentioned on the JNC blog has been one of those bucket-list type of things for me personally, so a big thank you to the post author Justin Principe for sharing my work, Japanese Nostalgic Car for the always amazing content, and of course all the people showing love.

So welcome to the Blistercards blog! For the new readers, things are a bit quiet but these are the two current projects waiting for me to complete. Being a full time student with work on the side really robs time from this hobby, however in about 2 weeks or so I'll be on a break with some more freedom to restart on these again.

On the left is a Johnny Lightning-made 240SX that's getting the full Type-X treatment, and on the right is a Civic wagon/Wagovan that used to be a common 2-door EF hatch by Hot Wheels which got released a few months ago.

Hope you guys like the type of stuff here; and the best way to keep updated is thru my Instagram profile.

Thanks again for stopping by!
