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 :cheers:

my collection :mrgreen:

Wow very nice collection! I'd like to see the Gallardo you got up top.
Im not ellegible to drive yet so I just collect diecasts-AutoArt 1:18 ONLY.
Being Aussie, I love my V8Supercars so I collect a lot of them as you will see...
Heres where I search for my model cars- www.biante.com.au

Thank you :cheers:

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 :lol:

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.

Freakster, you are really a freak....horny freak :p
@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. :thumbsup:

I've got about 10 or 12....1/18 scale BBurago models. Not much of a collection...
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.
