    Hello everybody,
    Im new to this site and thought Id offer my information.

    I have 64 Die cast in 1/18. Ive only built die cast's once, but decided to stick with buying them. (And repairing them if they break or dont get shipped with care.) I do / have built ship models, Titanic, SS. U.S, Bismark, Queen Mary etc etc.

    I have a very select amount of diecast. Certain cars are just so damn sexy.

    *They are in a spare bedroom in their boxes, being stored as I live in an apt*. Trying to remember exactly what I have

    Lambos: 1 86 Countach, 2 Diablo a standard in red and the SV in white and a Mercielago in orange.
    Ferrari: a F50, A 550 maranello and a white Testarossa (Miami Vice )from 88.
    Porsche: a Yellow 87, and a 98 (?) 911 from SCCA (?) racing has UPS logo and colors, a 356, and a 95.
    Vettes: a 54, a 04 and a 01, a 63 in glass and in metal, a 74.
    BMW's: mostly 3series coupes sedans and conv's
    MercedesBenz: An A Class, a SLK 98, 3 SL's 1yr before and after the Gullwing m.y. 3 in total and the 96 ML.
    Dodge: Vipers 2 98 GTS, 1 95 in red, 2 Pt Cruisers -the concept hot rod in gold, and the standard purple one from autoshows. I also have a Prowler free from an autoshow, a Sidewinder concept.
    Jag: An XJ220 from 94, a E type conv in green and an XK last gen conv.
    I also have a Delorean and a couple of Classics, 59 Eldo, 57 Chevy, 59 Impala, 57 and 03 Concept Tbird.

    My hope is to pick up a bunch of movie cars, General Lee, ECTO, the Lexus car from IROBOT etc etc. Along with a Citroen DS. I try not to pick up the most high end sports cars. Mostly vehicles that just stand out. I never buy 70s cars.


    As for my favorite:
    Hmm, Hard question.
    My Testarossa I love cause of those deep set "gills." My 59 Eldo Pink Caddy just screams FINS. My Etype looks sexy, sweet and the color just makes it so sexy. My Countach... I think is among the best.

    1:18 Bugs

    I only collect 1:18 Bugattis
    Reason being I do a lot of research on Bugs and this scale gives defined views
    My fav is the Chiron by AutoArt
    Maybe 'cause proto is based on Lambo chassis

    The 2 blue EB110s, and the red one look Maisto, or at least 1 of them.

    Favourite is quite damn well looked after.

    My favourite model car is my 6-month old Dodge Viper SRT-10 and also my Maserati MC12. They are both clean and considering I also race them in my room, very clean/

    Very late reply, Carsnut ! So sooory 'bout that.
    The Older bugs are: Bugatti T59 GT from Bburago (this one I modded myself by including radiator cover, common on all T59 racers but omitted by BBurago, highlighted chrome parts in engine and painted up wooden steering and dash guages.
    Then the T41 Grand Napoleon is a Solido, newer one from China as the original Solidos were ghastly !! More toy than model !
    The T59 Roadster is also Bburago.
    The EB110's are Bburago and Anson and the Dauer is Maisto.
    I'll be posting pics of the new display case in a new thread and then give a detailed breakdown. Got to take some pics first!

    PS and definitely UCP's biggest Bug fan! Anyone else have 3791 Bug pics ???
    I also am the liaison between Castrol and various sites on the World Production Car Speed Challenge, sponsored by Castrol.
    Incidentally, the new date has been tentatively set for 1st September 2007. Providing the track resurfacing is ready by then !

    Hi everybody,
    Interesting cuestion, therefore, I'm posting after one year or more.
    Hard cuestion, hard answer because I'm die cast collector (1:18 mainly) and modeler (1:24 my priority he! he! he!)
    Well, I suppose that Ferrari 500 F2 by CMC (thalking about die cast) and Mercedes Benz 190E 2.6 16 EVO II by Fujimi. Really, my second model car in my life.

    Hi all,
    this is my first reply into this forum and I wish to post some of my favorite cars, all competition cars, that I built in 1/24 scale. They are resin cast with metal larts, photoeched details and, of course, decals.

    - Alfa Romeo TZ I
    - Alfa Romeo TZ II
    - Lancia Fulvia HF 1,6

    Others into my web-site Automodelli 24 - La realtá a portata di mano
    Best wishes,
    Michele

    excellent models, and nice topics. Maybe the posts should be relocated to the Kit corner.
