    My latest models

    Here are my 2 latest models: a Mazda Furai concept, and the Pagani Zonda R of 2007. Both are 1:43 and both are made by Spark Models.

    Both a bit blurry, because they are all taken with my camera phone, just like all my other photos. Hope you enjoy them!

    Very nice. Do you collect mostly 1:43? Personally, I prefer the 1:18. As a kid, I thought the closer I could get to actual size, the better .

    I collect 1:18 too, but these particular models are only available in this size... at least for now anyway.

    My friend has a minichamps 1:18 Carrera GT in red. The amount of detail put into that thing is incredible.

    Ah yep, I used to have a 1:18 Autoart Carrera GT in yellow. But the paint started fading after like a year, so I took it back for a full refund. Apparently there was a paint defect with that batch of models

    Surely the Minichamps one would be of higher quality!

    There are a few pics of the Carrera GT in the links.

    Hmm I'm not sure. Autoart is pretty dang good as well. The same friend has a Maybach 62 and a Lamborghini Diablo VT roadster both by autoart, and they're done impeccably.

    those are EPIC! The Green GT3 is pretty sweet too. I might have to try a kit out for myself. Any advice for a first-timer?

    Haha, I have 1:43 version of Maybach 62

    Yea, both companies are pretty similar in terms of detail, but I reckon Minichamps are just that little bit better in quality. They cost more too...

    Thanks! Unfortunately, I buy pre-made die-cast models, not kits, so I can't help you there. But there was a guy on the forum who just made a F430 from a kit and it looked pretty sweet! You could try asking him for kit help

    All my cars are either Maisto, Burago, or Hotwheels. Nothing special there. I went for quantity over quality. Couldn't justify spending over $100 on something that sits on a shelf. It would have to be my favorite car of all time.

    lol. I guess I must have misinterpreted something somewhere. They're still epic, though. I have a pretty large collection of 1:64th HotWheels, myself.

    I used to collect Maisto, but they look very bad compared with Autoart and Minichamps, so I stopped collecting them. I only get models of cars that I love/like very much, so I don't have many. Quality not quantity

    Haha, I see, I only have a few Hotwheel cars. I stopped buying them after I got these
