Yes its possible you wont win anything, thus the gamble…but, its not everyday (if ever) you can get a piece of this quality for such a price, so, just let that sink in for a minute…click the link and look over the pics and description of the bus, and read the rules and exclusions (aka..fine print)..then make your decision.
Now….know that the drawing will be held this coming saturday, and there are a LIMITED number of entries being made available, so if you want to play…dont wait too long!!!  Once the entries are sold, thats it..no more will be made available.  Ive had a few of these raffles in the last few years, and most of them did sell out.  This is the first promotion of this kind Ive done via the newer Hot Toy Cars.com site tho.
Also, for those purchasing 2 or more entries, you WILL at the very least receive a large HotToyCars.com vinyl decal!!
Oh and even my friends outside the US are welcome for this event, but, will be responsible for additional charge to cover shipping.

So go get yourself an entry or two and have fun participating!!!

LAST BadBat Two Car SET coming up FOR SALE this WEEKEND!!

GET READY…THE LAST BadBat TWO CAR SET is coming up For SALE THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!badbatSET_display1
Its gonna have a SPECIAL PRICE too.  Likely will go fast!!
This last VW DragBus had some very minor paint defects that I cannot get out, so it either strip it down and start over (which not likely to happen)
~ OR ~
Sell it at a discount..which is what Im going to do.
The imperfections do not detract from the overall look of the bus.  Everything looks like the rest except a few ultra tiny specks on the sides, near flames.  If I didnt tell you about them..you likely would never even notice, because they are that minor.  However, I strive for perfect finishes, like the top and rest of the bus turned out.  But again I hate to strip it for these minor issues…so keep watching for start time.  I will send it to our newsletter subscribers first, then post on the Hot Toy Cars blog and social media pages within an hour of start time.
I dont know if it will go as soon as it listed or remain available for several days?..but the other two sets sold quickly..and THIS is the LAST ONE…so you never can tell.

Badbat Super Chase Bus peek!!

Well I just couldnt wait any longer to show this one off!  Plus I just finished up the very detailed custom chassis..lol
The bus (except the BadBat  logo on top.) Is ALL PAINT!  One of one…candy blue and pearl blue two tone with custom mixed pearl silver flames. Also you might notice the side flames are shadowed which is also hand painted. Top is same design as the regular editions but is done with custom mixed silver pearl with fade and details to tribal bat  of light charcoal. This is also the only bus in the series with vw logo on nose.

The chassis….well first it was HEAVILY POLISHED.   The large exhaust brace was chopped up leaving a much smaller realistic brace.  Notice you can see through all the way at rear of engine.  This left an unsightly gap which was filled with epoxy and molded/sanded to the contours of the transmission housing.  Looks much better!  All three exhausts were drilled out and polished.  Details abound on engine and chassis.  Plus its riding on blue chrome 5sp.wheels, with silver stripe real riders…leveled..to lowest possible height and fronts narrowed (chassis) to ride inside body.  Coming soon!

Aged Metal RIPPED Evo GT — DONE!!

agemetalripEvogt_top1agemetalripEvogt_front2
agemetalripEvogt_rear1
OK Folkes…here are the final pics of the Aged Metal RIPPED EVO GT that Ive been showing you the paint in process pics of. (CLICK HERE for WIP articles)
This thing is all paint except for the lights which are high quality metallic ink and custom made.
I also used nearly all waterbased “Wicked Color” from Createx. The only exception is intercoat and final urethane automotive clears and also alclad chrome for the base color of the metal layer prior to the aging process. I did a LOT of work with a “hairy stick” (aka paint brush..lol) on this one. Nearly all the ripped effect “ripples” shadow effects were done with wicked and auto air colors and transparent base all mixed on a pallet to achieve the right hue and transparency. The silver pearl around the edges gives a natural highlight and shadow effect which similates a freshly torn metal edge nicely. Shadows to the rips complete the look, appearing to be raised above the aged metal surface.
One OF ONE!! Hand signed on wing, incorporated into a rip.
SORRY, this one IS SOLD!!
