    Question - why do you save the boxes?

    I've specialized in 1/18 either silver or red and have about 40. F1, Ferrari, and Euro Sport cars. Couldn't wait to get rid of the boxes. Argh ugly ugly boxes garbage the boxes and stupid phillips screws

    Sometimes I save the boxes, sometimes I chuck 'em. If you save them, it makes it more secure for transport - whether you have to sell them, move them to another house, whatever.

    I've been horrified to have found mirrors and other bits broken off in transport despite having packed them carefully.

    I have many models that would be worth alot more if I still had the boxes for them. My UT Mclaren F1 gtr longtail in black is a good example. Without the box it sells for about $60 to $80. With the box I have seen it go for $160.00!

    Any serious collector will not pay even half the price for a model without a box.
    Its like buying a car without a title. Boxes are what make a model complete.

    I have about 650 models in all scales from 1:8 to 1:43. About 250 of these are Ferraris and the rest are road and race cars of all makes. I tend not to collect F1 cars as a rule,well you have to stop somewhere! My first model was a Corvette from Burago,about 25 years ago, and my latest is the Pagani Zonda from Autoart. I have kept all the boxes and plinths and as you can imagine they take up a lot of space! If you want to see some of the collection type in " Colms collection" in the search function and have a look. Any questions feel free to ask. Colm.
