Wow! Without those Mercs it would be even more interesting = cheaper. That would be perfect for my 1:18 collection of cars I've owned/own
Yeah I saw that, its a shame you can't buy this truck without all the MB diecast cars bundled together.

Nope, the truck including trailer is "standalone". The composition mentioned in the article isn't something you can buy like that, it's just a "what if I wanted to have this truck plus six high quality models".

If you search for NZG B66004173 you should find the truck including trailer, I saw it in Germany for about 630 Euros (incl. VAT).

This arrived just yesterday: the Autoart Koenigsegg One:1 in matte blue, a worthy addition to the orange CCX I already own. :) The door mechanism is strong, the doors hold in every position, there are gas strut replicas for the front and rear bonnets (of course not filled with gas), the rear wing is movable (visible in the 6th and 7th picture) and the carbon fibre weave is superb as always with Autoart.

According to my Excel spreadsheet (yes, of course I maintain such a thing, I'm german afterall :p ) I own 223 model cars in scale 1:18, of those there are 182 including the original box. Yes, my basement is literally full with original boxes in big cardboard boxes.

I wish I could afford a really nice diecast. Just one. Preferrably a McLaren F1 of some sort. ;) I have a ton of different ones, ranging from goofy to super cool, and I love them, but nothing with really incredible detail.

Do any of you collect those CM's Rally cars? Especially for the size, the livery detail on them is incredible! I have around a dozen of them.

Too many and yet not enough
Is that model below that the hint to your next 1:1 car? :p
I'm more of a Sagaris man :D Just can't bring myself to spend the money that those models seem to fetch. And it'd be a royal PITA to import one, sadly.
