    Meet Rob of Matchbox Garage and How to Share your Diecast Hobby on Instagram

    When it comes to restoring Matchbox garage, it's hard to not think of Matchbox Garage. Rob has been making works of art out of seemingly destroyed diecast vehicles. Rob braved some serious technical issues as we tried to overcome the type of issues only thousands of miles can provide. Still, we had a great discussion and Rob was a delight to chat with. Also, @Datsunman Diecast takes us through that it takes to make a good diecast based Instagram account, and the pros and cons of Instagram vs YouTube for the hobby.
