    Mine arrived from Hong Kong last night. It looks great next to my red one, my deep blue Mclaren f1 and 2 F50s, one yellow one red, all 1/12

    I used to buy the models willy nilly (i have around 104 in all, both 1/12 and 1/18) but now, as i am older and can see the investment potential, i only buy the ones that i like and can see them appreciating in value in the future......

    BTW, i ordered a Tamiya Enzo 2 weeks ago, then read all the horror stories about it being PLASTCI!!!!! and quite fragile, hope i havent made a mistake?.........

    i have recently moved, and as you can possibly imagine, the amount of model boxes i had took up WAY too much room, so they are now carefully stored in the loft.... No pictures unfortunately, but i have now updated my spreadsheet of my models, now refined to 100...

    You will note that some cars are the same model just different colours, thats when i had alot of disposable income and thought it was a good way to spend my money..........

    Oh, moving I know that feeling..... Did that twice in the past 3 years.

    By the way, I am 'only' interested in your 1/12 cars.

    now that may be easier to do, as those ones arent in the loft as they are more valuable, give me a few days as my home internet is not up and running yet, but the 1/12's will be shown, hopefully next week........

    i may even have the Enzo by then, too...........

    Could we bother you for some pictures?

    As much as I'm interested in your collection (WOW!), I'm much more interested in how you arrange such as hugh assortment of cars.

    Even for a professional institution like a museum, your collection represents a space and display efficiency dilemma.

    I dont think you have enough models!...you need to buy more!...you need to buy them soon!!...lol

    Seriously..I didnt even know there was a 1/12 scale F40 in yellow...but silly me. It does appear on the Minichamps USA website as a 4th qtr release. My thoughts are that after its all said and done..it could be pretty rare. I don't expect alot of people to buy the yellow as long as the red is still around

    As i said, as soon as my internet gets linked up by NTL (could be a while, as most of the UK f/chatters know...) the digi camera will be dusted off and piccys will be on here, should be early part of next week.....

    they are 'arranged' in boxes still in my loft, with only the 1/12's rarely on display, as my niece (15months old) took a shine to a Bburago 1/18 F40 and cracked the windscreen (she's gonna get nothing in my will....)
