Model Cars......who else collects them?
Published 21/06/2024 @ 22:23:09, By Baube
I try not to buy race cars but its like becoming a trend now that any model i don't have ( and might be my only chance to have ) gets at least painted as one

1966 Chevy Corvair ( of course, after buying that one i learned that there is a non-marked one in the Jay Leno's garage series... well, at least i like the number .. :grin: )

Got a 1954 Mercury Sun Valley that claims to make any driving easy ( still have to find a way to climb in to verify that theory.. :whistle: )

A pair of 1992 Honda Civic

A pair of Chevy Nova ( that should still be called Chevy II at that point.. )

A white 1984 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am ( was not supposed since i got the blue one that i think looks way better but the white one kept me thinking about the 15th Anniversary one

And a Mercedes-Benz ( or should i say Porsche ? :whistle: ) 500 E for.. well.. being a 500 E .. :grin:

Got it too , and a silver one ( regular Hot Wheels ) .. i think i have the red one too .. in fact, they would slap 500 E on a VW Beetle and i'd probably buy it ! :lol:

Bought a 1971 Porsche 911 ( but i mostly want the 356 from that series )

If there is a SS , does that means that the regular EB110 was underpowered ? :whistle:

Harry Potter's race car.. kind of..

Model Cars......who else collects them? Well, the Museum of Le Mans surely collects them as they have almost all cars that have ever raced there. That's about 4500 1:43's wall to wall :bigeyes2125:

Bought these yesterday, cost me around 1,580 TWD (or $50 USD)
My favorite model is actually the Ford Transit, it's heavy for a 1/64 model 😍

My next target would be Mini GT Lincoln Capri, it got 7 variants but I only received two of them

I had to leave all my collections at home in Italy (for now) so let me introduce my first purchases in the new Country, something that I could not find at reasonable prices before:

Corgi Vanguards Audi quattro 20V
Matchbox Superkings Audi quattro (which came with a nice smell of old stuff)

I had many of the Vanguards quattros when they came out, but didn't love them enough so sold most of them on. This page lists all the variations - scroll down to VA129. I think most are fairly easy to find without bursting your wallet - even the chromed one (edition size about 600) and the white LHD (another edition of about 600 from memory, less than the RHD). However the 2 red Ashes to Ashes can now cost squillions, although there's a fair number out there. They're slightly different as the solo Corgi is plain livery, but its twin in the set has bullet hole stickers from the series finale - sometimes lots, sometimes hardly any.

Does Rochdale have model shops??

Yes I was aware of all these variations, but the one I've been fancing more than the others was the Panther black RR 20V as it matches my very favourite car. Obviously they didn't make big efforts to differentiate all the variations for obvious production costs so the model is not 100% accurate - they kept the same old front grille with the small Audi rings for every model when it should have been different at least in the 1987 Pearl white and the 20V.
I got the Ashes to Ashes 'single' model back when it was still fair though.

Not quite to be honest, I got these on ebay.

I guess you meant to include a link ? Was it perchance this one ?

Recently acquired by Baube's never-ending parking lot :

1964 Buick Riviera
Mercedes Sprinter that looks more like a scientific van than a camper...

Bumblebee but somehow i think that would be a better result if they took the Matchbox version of the Beetle
McLaren F1 that strangely looks like the one Rowan Atkinson used to have

Mustang LX 5.0 and SVO . What if funny is that they did a nearly perfect job painting the SVO's tail lights and left the LX's without any paint on them
With that color , i really wish it was the hatchback one...

a Scout pick-up , more or less..
When you live in a country where winter unleashes its fury nearly 6 months a year ( ok,, this year was exceptional..) , you'll eventually need one of these .. :grin:

Normally , i would not buy this thing but it glows in the dark..
I already have a few Cougar but with this color , the Eliminator just eliminated my will to resist buying another one... :whistle:
