Theres some really nice 1/18 stuff about at the moment but as you say the trouble is they do take up a lot of room.

Looks good Tayne, always good to get stuff cheaper than what they want for it. Typically reflects on the feedback they leave you.......Im currently in a 'need to get some Jap cars' 1/43rd but I cant find anything. Ebbro looks decent but I dont know where to start, the Civic you do Lobster looks nice. Any help?

Peter that collection is amazing! I have never seen some of those 1/43rd models you have. I do have a few schabak and gama items, but they command fairly high prices now. You got any others?

Stahlberg. They're about 1/20th scale, plastic. Nicely detailed - I bought a couple of Saab 900 Turbos at a boot sale a couple of years ago for a fiver and promptly sold them on eBay for £60 :lol: Beautiful collection, Peter C.

Jeez, what a collection! Are you trying to get 44 of these Skodas?

Posted Image

And these, looks like you're buying them all, then destroy them all but one to increase the value... or do you have a bad memory so you keep buying the same model over and over? :wink:

Are the two down on the left Fiat 500/Autobianchi based? They look absolutely amazing! Double cab Cinque-van-to.

VW, Thanks for the reply about the Trabant....The garage is looking brilliant.The Fez is wearing Speedlines....Pug 1.9 GTi....dunno about the other two, although the Cav looks like its wearing Scooby rally car wheels. A couple of the figures look like they're pissed up.... or is the dude by the red Cav checkin the sills....?
I did a bit of outside photography to see if I've managed to replicate tarmac on a little diorama base.......cost fuck all to make and was built in about an hour, but its great for displaying models.
