Matchbox's Skoda - The Customs

Image from

Always one of my favorite 80s Matchbox castings. It was unique, had suspension, opening trunk and plastic inserts as front lights made up from the windows. We only saw one release of this casting so as I find them in the beater bins which is rare these days, I pick them up and lay a new color on them to add to my collection. Let's take a look at the original Matchbox release first:

The following are a few pictures of real Skoda sedans from this era in non-racing paint that I wish Matchbox would have also produced...

Now let's take a look at some of the customs I did many years ago...

And let's take a look at them all loaded up on the car carrier....notice the addition of the yellow and red models:

I hope you all find these to your liking. Let me know what you think.

Custom Mercedes Benz Unimogs

The UNIMOG...such a cool vehicle in reality...becomes one of my favorite 3inchbliss subjects. Most of my Unimogs are from Matchbox, Majorette and Hotwheels, but most companies have done one in some scale such as Siku, Herpa and Wiking. In any case, I hope you enjoy my custom Unimogs.
