    Very Very nice!! Were did you get the Ferrari TransPorts? I think I'm going to have to start collecting the 1:43 scale cars aswell. They are quite nice and don't take up as much room as the 1:18's.

    That is precisely why I started collecting 1/43s. The transports should be available through either www.ewacars.com or www.scalecars.com

    NNO,
    Yes all of the pictures are 1:43. You can see in one of the pictures the bottom of my cabinet I have a few 1/24s (F40-franklin mint, 250LM-Bburago, and 288GTO-Bburago). I do have a few more 1/43s in another room and a couple 1:18s. I also have 100s of the "junk" hotwheels size (1/64) in boxes.

    I bought him many years ago from EWA. I have not seen any for sale in about 8 years.

    I like the case, and could use one. Where did you get it? Nice Collection! If you sold it all you could probably buy a blue or silver 308 or 330. :) Maybe trade Steve his Silver 308 for your models.

    The case I bought at Reliable Furniture (I don't know if they are still around). I would absolutely sell all of my Ferrari stuff for a 308 and have offered Steve many times, but unfortunately he has not taken me up on it :).

    I'm going to go to Oak Showcase since they are closing and selling things for dirt cheap... I hope they have something.

    Excellent collection! thanks for posting. I have also thought about starting a 1:43 collection just because the transports are so cool. I wish they made them in 1:18 so I could use them with my existing collection.

    I really like the modern Transporters. I am thinking about getting one. I looked at the team van, but thought the quality was pretty poor for the price. I have never seen the team bus in person, how is the quality? Do you have the executive helicopter? I also just noticed that the 1970 transporter with Sponsor logos, but it doesn't seem worth the extra $20.

    I just found the Transports for sale here, I don't know how they compare price wise, but this company has been very good to me, customer service wise.
