Nice pics, thanks for sharing. I'm assuming those cartoon looking rods are scratch built?? They are really cool!

The 'Little Red Deora' was a build I gave to Larry Alexander [of the Alexander Bros. car customizers, creators of the Deora].
I have LOVED the Deora since I got the Hot Wheel of it as a kid.

Larry is in our model club. He and I have built up a good rapport since I joined the DMCC. He heard I built a wheelstander of the Deora and asked to see it. I told him i'd give it to him IF he traded some old memorabilia from the A Bros shop from the old days.
He gave me a couple cool things including an old hand-made panel shaping tool he's 'probably' [Larry is now 76 years old] used on the Deora when it was built back in the day.

Best Christmas ever !!

Those are resin gift shop/mail order display pieces. There's 12 in the set IIRC.
