Custom Diecast México

Dune Buggy Matchbox

CUSTOMIZER: Ahmed /  MARCA: Matchbox Lesney /  CASTING: Dune Buggy   

La idea de reconstruir este Buggy surgió para participar en el concurso de customs del Hot Wheels México Club, el tema fue rescatar una “cascara”, entonces me acorde que tenia este por ahí esperando a ser restaurado. Así estaba el pobre.
___________

The motivation behind the restoration of this Buggy was to participate in a custom contest held by Hot wheels Mexico Club, which had “save some junker” for a theme, so I decided on this thing I had lying around in my “to do” box. As you can see, it was pretty beat up.

 

Es común encontrar estos Buggys sin motor y sin escapes, entonces se me ocurrió para no batallar con el motor hacerle una tapa de color negro mate, simulando una lona.
___________

These Buggys are  very common to find wihtout the engine and headers, and since I didn’t want to struggle wih that,  I simply fabricated a flat black cover for the engine area.

Lo pinte de color naranja perlado, pero antes de eso hubo que enderezarle el toldo el cual estaba pisado.
___________

Some pearl orange was in order, but before that I had to fix up the roof, as someone had stepped over the poor car and it was bent.

Las llantas son de Hot Wheels , me decidí por ponerle adelante unas normales y atrás unas mudders que hacen que cambie totalmente el concepto del casting.
___________

The wheels are off some Hot Wheels, I decided for normal tires at front and some mudders in the rear, which completely change the concept of the casting.

Un detalle que es difícil de distinguir es el tablero, el cual le añadí por que el modelo original no lo trae.
___________

A detail that’s difficult to spot is the dashboard which I added, as originally this casting comes without one.

Le añadí su clásica antena con banderola que no debe faltar en un buggy de las dunas.
___________

I also added the classic flag antenna that no self-respecting sand buggy should lack.

Uno mas que vuelve a la vida!!!
___________

And thus, another one comes back to life!!
