    Aren't there four different liveries for the MG Models 550s? Do you have the others?

    Beautiful model.

    Thanks. :) Thats the only one I have.

    I believe there are several of them.

    one without liveries and

    Lease plan #15
    Lease plan #16
    Lease plan #23 IMVEST
    careracing #58
    Redbull
    Oliver Garden.

    I have seen all but Oliver Garden. But I do know they make the kit. But I haven't seen a picture of it. I'm sure there is more than what I name but I did not write down the numbers and drivers.

    Oh, man, a 550 GT...! You really have an awesome collection...! How long have you been collecting...? How many models do you have, total...? Where do you keep them...?


    Is it open to the public...? :D

    Isn't the Prodrive model the very expensive one, like 400 bucks or something?

    I always wanted to get that one, but still can't really justify it.
    :(

    Andreas - yes, the best price I've seen for an MG 1:18 Prodrive 550 was $300US, but they can get close to $400 in some places. Expensive, but really works of art.

    F355 - You can see pictures of the other 3 Prodrive 550s at www.scale18.com but I have never seen the Red Bull or OG versions. If you have pics, please post - especially the Red Bull. I love that livery!

    Joe

    P.S. like DESdemona said, you have an awesome collection - would be nice to see the whole bunch on one website (?)

    Thanks DES. Been collecting for about 10 years. On and off.
    Lost count on how many, theres a bunch stuffed in the closet still waiting to be let out. Open to public? I have no problem letting people visit, depending on how many. I don't have a big enough place to display all yet though. Its probably a better idea when I get married first and settle down into a bigger home. Then hold a museum. ;)

    tifosi12 - It was expensive but it was worth every penny. My collection felt naked without it. :)

    Wow...

    Is your collection Ferrar-exclusive...? Do you have any models of the Bread Van...?

    Wouldn't mind seeing a few good shots of the MDS (or is it "MSD"? - can't remember) F50GT if you have it.

    Your pictures are great - keep 'em coming.

    I guess one day I'll have to bite the bullett.

    Not on the F50GT though. Still working on it. Making slow progress...

    It gets worse: Ever since I discoverd Rosso Model I'm thinking on taking a second mortgage on the house...
    :)

    Very nice collection! :)

    I like the plain display to show off the cars also.

    Is that the one on ebay in France for $240...? If so, yeah, i've heard of that one... If not, then this is news to me... How much do they want...? What number is on it...? One day, i'd like a different model of the Bread Van for each stage of its life, but for right now, i want #16... Don't get me wrong, i'll start my Bread Van collection off with any model, but #16 will be the most important of the collection whether acquired first or last or anywhere in between...
