Show us your model car collection!

Recommended Posts

Alright, let's continue our "show us-series" :)

All of us are car enthusiastics, so I'm pretty sure everyone has at least one model car on the bookself. So take a photo and share it with us.

Here is some of my collection:

Sounds like fun :)

I'll start with my unmade stuff first.

We'll move onto the showcase cars later.

All bought off ebay :) (addict) :P . Most recent was the 1/12th F2002 Ferrari - 40cm in length. All the parts have been individually pre painted, so some sprues have multi coluoured parts. The engineering quality of the model is no where near Tamiya standards, but it still will make a nice showpiece one day. Cost me

Mat nice Lotus and Ferrari :) My F40 is only 1:24 and it's a Burago-model, so it's not actually "the model car" but I liked it much.

Simon can't wait to see your showcase cars B)

Okay - here's the 'Lounge Collection'.

Anyway there's a few Esprit cars here. A small matchbox V8, An SE (1/38), and the Auto Art V8 (1/43) - all in 'Low Vis' Red. B)

Quite Envious of you guys with car models in your Lounge/living rooms. B)

Mine are banned from these areas :unsure:

A destructive 4 yr. old daughter, and a wife who refuses to clean them being the reasons. :D

My faves so far are the Porsche 917 and shocking green Miura SV owned by Mark B)

Mine are in the living room but are a mess, need a nice cabinet for the best ones. Never understood why its such a taboo for a bloke to have his toybox out, having said that none of my mates get away with it! The only one allowed in the living room however (on the best furniture!) is my missus' Autoart Bullitt Mustang, her dreamcar..the mind control seems to be working then.

Why thankyou, theres some nice concept cars in the attic that need an airing, you would probably appreciate them (Carabo, P5, 512S, and a 2' long Ferrari Modulo). Praise the God of Ebay :lol:

My most recent addition from the misses. Got same flak as Wayne though... My models are banished to the garage by 'She-Who-Will-Be-Obeyed' and also have a sticky fingered four year old daughter. My garage is off limits to them, so sort of get my own back there... :lol:
