Well, I haven't got anything exciting tbh - got these about 5 years ago and decided to collect them - didn't get very far - haha

I'll start with this little gem, which is probably worth bugger all :D

1/58 Porsche 959 (1986)

Ok, stop laughing - these are my actual cars - though still really cheap and probably not worth anything, seeing as they cost ?8 each ;) I still love em though:

1/18 Jaguar XJ220 (1992)

I think that second set was made by porsche themselves?

No. Thats just a set of four model that everyone could buy back in 1999. It was sold out quickly and now very expnesive. By then it only costs about 125EUR... 8)

Yes it is, but it's more of a joke my friends started because I was the only one who defended Schumi during discussions. Now I get a Schumi car whenever they see one for cheap.

You can get one in scale 1/43 and I think AutoArt is planning one in scale 1/18 :)

Sorry guys.... :cheers:
I edited my post and I?m not angry if someone does not like collecting models etc.
Feel free to post your collections, question if you search a model or just talk about them.

What swek said is true.

Jasonchui's enjoyable. :)

Anyway I wanted to know which companies make the best die cast models in 1:18. I've seen the AutoArt and will definitely be getting them but who else??

Exoto is the best but very expensive...

AutoArt, Kyosho and Minichamps are the three greatest modelmakers. If I had the choice in 1/18 I?d take AutoArt.

In 1/43 is Minichamps very big! AutoArt and Kyosho are equal :)

Okay...if he?s enjoyable.....let him stay :lol:

I'm no model buff like you guys are - the few I have are all Bburago - not the greatest build quality, I think - but you model guys might know more - are they good compared to anyone else?
