    Diecast Models

    Hi there,

    I think this hobby is also entertaiment. We all love cars but most of us don´t have the money or space to buy all of them. Thats why I not only watch movies, play games, read books about cars, I also collect little cars. These are collector models by Minichamps and AutoArt in scale 1/43.

    Do you also collect diecasts?
    Feel free to post your models or just talk about them

    my collection

    Thank you

    I know Biante very well but just for having a look at all these nice Holdens and Falcons in scale 1/43.

    1/18 is too big to collect

    Yeah....this hobby really eats my money but who cares

    Yeah Freakster,

    but these aren´t Hot Wheels and also not suitable for children under 14
    These are real collector-models to look at and to stand in cabinets. Some of them are really valuable on ebay. Check Porsche Turbo Minichamps and you´ll find something mdoels that go beyond 200$. Their retailprice is about 30$.

    I also prefer Johnny Lightning in scale 1/64 to Hot Wheels because the Hot Wheels nower days are more fantasymodels and not that detailed as collectormodels.

    unfortunately i dont have mine in glass cases. they are all in my closet so i had to take them out and take the pics of them on my bed or the hallway floor.

    after nearly 4 long hours, setting up the cars, taking over 100 pics im done.

    ill up the pics into thumbnail form tomorrow.

    all 17 of my 1:18 cars and my 3 1:43 cars.

    Freakster, you are really a freak....horny freak
    @Justin:
    Yeah take your time. Good things always take a bit of time
    Do you plan buying more carmodels in the future?

    This is not my whole collection. I have about 200 1/43 models and the number is still rising.

    Same here, a couple of bburago 1:24 models are all I have although I'd love to get more
    These things are rare and very expensive around here. But I'm planning on getting more into it after relocating.
