I dont know if i should remove the base of the models
what should i do?
Whatever makes you happy!
I remove mine so I can "play" with them.
what kind of models are you refuring to? bbr?
I remove all base because they consume a lot of space. But if you have space is your decision. Otherwise I have all my bases in my storage for future big room
if you are talking about models in general, yes i remove tha bases if i want to dispaly them
Removed and tossed, along with the boxes.
i'm a remove and toss guy too. life is short. i play with my toys. keep all my f-car models on my desk at work so i can remember why i do what i do . even my ertl 275 - base removed, packaging tossed.
I wouldn't call it 'play', I call it 'study and research'.
Seriously that's how I sometimes check for details and differences. One day I'll be a concours judge and every 355 that doesn't say "Mattel" underneath will get points deducted...
PS: Isn't that Ertl just ugly? I hate that model, but it's the only 275 I got.
I too remove the base on my models, though some demand it because the base is poorly designed.
If you do remove and keep the base, keep track of the screws and support studs. Also keep track of where they go. If you ever decide to reattach the base you will need this information.
How I told you before I remove all my bases but I'm trying to buy for each model a display case. Its better to maintain all cars out of contamination !!! jajaja ($6.99 each one for 1/18 models in Container Store) (http://www.thecontainerstore.com/browse/Product.jhtml?PRODID=61435&CATID=233)
Look the pic..
I keep them behind one big piece of glass, but I keep all boxes. When I want to move them it is much easier, when I want to sell them they are worth more.
yup, that 275 is not optimal, but there's no other option (still). i hate my mira 512TR too, but, again, no other option that i know of. i REALLY want a NICE black 512TR to go in my lineup Daytona, 512BB, 512TR, and 550 - all black.
I got a nice black 512TR. But it is a targa...
