It's been a while since I blogged but this is one I would not want to have missed sharing.

I was in London and saw this gallery sign and had to check it out!

Dogs in da car

by fabiodipa

We love toys but sometimes the quality and the care of details is poor. Despite this sometimes, also in cheap toys, we  find some details that we appreciate and remember.
This is the case of some cars reproductions for kids. Cheap toys with a love about details. The users of http://www.diecastlovers.com found a strange common detail between models of different makes and ages: the presence of dogs inside cars...

André Citroën was born in Paris in 1878, he was not French, but of Dutch Jewish origin. His parents moved from Amsterdam to Paris two years for his birth. The history of the French brand of Citroën dates back till 1902. The factory produced cogs with a special tread in a V-shape that operated more silent than the normal treads. This tread became the symbol of the Citroën factory and is carried on all the cars. (the double Chevron)

Doosan CL

This is the Doosan CL. Or as real as it is going to get. The CL, or Concept Loader, is a concept of how a loader might look in the year 2020. It is the sister model to the CX or Concept eXcavator. Both miniatures come with a DVD showing the special features of the machines. In this case, the loader has a moving counterweight at the rear, a head-up display and independant suspension. Also the bucket construction is different to contemporary designs in that the bucket can slide over the ends of the bucket arm.

I hope to showcase the CX soon as well. Both miniatures actually exist for some time already, but seem to be quite limited in distribution.

Sun Star's 1:12 models are amazing! The trafficators work, the windows wind up and down and the roofs on the conertibles fold up and down! There are Morris Minors: a Traveller, a Minor 2-door saloon, a convertible and a fabulous Minor 1,000,000 in authentic purple, VWs: Beetle, Beetle Cabrio & asorted T1 Transporters, plus Minis.
