Collecting and OrganizingPhoto of the day thread

If Brian allows this. Not sure if this is easier, or harder on the site?

Instead of a new thread every time a custom is made, we could just add the photo here?   Again Brian can comment.  

So race cars, custom, mainlines, treasure hunts, diecast dioramas... you name it. 

Maybe limit to one post a day?

Sounds good to me! I do have ideas/plans for how to kind of auto-collect photos from threads to make a daily photo...kind of like the old Daily Diecast I had on the old (very old) Redline Derby site.

Also have a thought to make a photo-by-mail thing too so everyone can just shoot off photos from their phones as they're out and about.

But that's all in the plans...and my reputation for getting things done fast isn't that great, so this is the best we got right now. Thanks for starting it, can't wait to see what people share.

Fair warning, however, that as more photos get added this thread could be very slow to load. If your image host offers various sizes for photos, pick the one that is 800-pixels wide or less, probably "medium" size in most cases. Smaller photos will help reduce load time and bandwidth use.

Well these don't measure up next to what I've seen here,but a couple of my very 1st tries ,years ago..

My very first tries involved an old paint brush and some bottles of paint.

72_Chevy_C10
Is this the same as the earlier '55? Or, did you build another one?
Traction-Event
built this awhile back...just getting around to finishing it up.... was gonna be my "2 lane Blacktop car"
72_Chevy_C10
I was going to say that you needed a fiberglass nose and a hood scoop!

thanks chris... new computer this week... hope it was it not me...

My very first Hot Wheels car as a kid was this Morris Wagon from one of those birthday sets. Not as worn as some of the other ones I had back then.

This stock 1970 Camaro from the 2015 Redline series I got for Christmas is surprisingly fast.

nice to see an fte fat 40 peeking from lane 1

note the sloppy starter is all to the left or in front of the door... for staging pix...

Another custom C10...

I wanted to try out a new black metal paint. I'm sure it will cover better when it isn't so cold in the basement! 

CrzyTrkrDude
the bed looks a lot shorter at that angle. I like it!
72_Chevy_C10
I think it is the big tires that make the bed look shorter :)

Facebook memory from four years ago. The caption read:

"There are never enough Audi R8s in life for me--especially ice blue ones."

Smitty has a new backdrop for staging...or maybe fueling up pics...

virtual rainbow

I robbed the Real Rider wheels off of this T-Bucket for a C10 and I had these Steeles laying around...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20160201_202251_zpserzxbyag.jpg

I kinda like it! It needs a little more realistic scaled engine in it...I'll have to see what I can find

CrzyTrkrDude
Are those duallies?? NICE!!
fordman
the germans ran duals at early bonneville trials...try shift kicker's mill...
72_Chevy_C10
Yeah, they are the duals from the flatbed tgat I stole the body off :)

geek squad jenifer helped me out with pic posting...

Traction-Event

"Short Stack" ...


CrzyTrkrDude
NICE!

I don't think I would have ever thought to do this before I started visiting RLD...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20160206_203023-1_zpsvzofudta.jpg

I really don't like the hood scoop on the '69 Nova, so this one will be hoodless with a new mill

delta6
Gonna look sweet!
72_Chevy_C10
Thanks Dan!
redlinederby
Didn't realize under the hood wasn't just a empty hole.
KandORacing
Wow, hidden secret of the casting....

This amazing custom Lola GT (courtesy of Chris Taylor aka Traction Event) has a new home here in Bellingham Washington.  Thanks TE!!!


fordman
hmmm... if that top was angled a sloppy starter could screw onto one... future prize 442 ? LMK...

Got a care package from C-10 today... Fishtail is in heaven. lots of bling for custom cars...

Thanks!!!

72_Chevy_C10
Donks! Looks good!

New engine bay and a new mill...it looks a little more like a Nova should...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20160208_212649_zpsehjfwpoh.jpg

The 5 spokes aren't staying. It's sitting on a metal Chrysler 300 chassis (compliments of CrzyTrkrDude) and it is about 48 grams. So, if I can find some speed, it might go to the Johnny race next month

delta6
Called it!! Looks saweeet! :-)
CrzyTrkrDude
I knew you'd find a good use for those mystery car chassis!!
72_Chevy_C10
I'll put some good wheels on it and see how it rolls this weekend :)

It's like it is the early '60's on my kitchen counter...
