Sorry for the Quality, but my 1:43 scale Daniel Ricciardo Camo-Bull model just arrived from Austria
I think i'm addicted to buying matchbox cars (for my 2 year old son of course) My wife is complaining that he has too many cars so this week I only bought a Subaru WRX, Nissan 370Z, Mini Cooper, trophy truck, BMW M3 race car, Audi A4, Honda Integra and a Hot Wheels bus.
I make sure he learns the make and model of each of the cars he gets, that's education right?
rookie... but on the right track
my son's car box is quite deep
but I buy them for myself
I will have to get some more pics up of the collection
Yeah cool, His favourites are the muscle car collection with 67 Mustang, 64 Impala low rider, Charger, Firebird and Chevy Nomad. I'm not big on all these strange Hot Wheels cars that are way out. I just like real cars.
I am the same. My wife has learned this and is also on board. Most of the cars come from her.
I have quite a few muscle cars, you're making me want to get the camera out again!!
You do have quite a talent for model car photography
Hotwheels people. Manufacture sets are the go. Knowing when to stop is the problem. There is 2 different gran turismo sets too. Both pretty cool.
Guilty of this also. I even kept some for myself and out of the kids reach. Haven't bought any for a while now, as all we didn't have were all the weird custom hotweels ones. Will have to have a look at whats on the shelves next time I'm out.
For the kids of course
ok time for the birthday cars my wife got me.
All about 1/64 scale
Classic Lotus Europa
Stratos Rally Car
The Aston is hotwheels but the rest are Tomica Pro
Bonus F1 Lego's I made for my kids this morning
My all time fave finally arrived
Only just now!?
Yep for some reason 5 came in the mail today
Sounds like the postage was constipated
Man cave is picking up steam!
A couple of months ago i competed in my very first real life 24 hour endurance race in an Audi A4 with @Killercarlcox69 . To commemorate this event i decided to buy some model cars for my collection.
The car livery was based on an old German touring car and looked like this.

I managed to find a very rare 1/18 model of that exact car in perfect condition to display in my home

I also got my hands on a 1/43 version of the car and tried to replicate our car the best i could.

@VARDZ what do you think?
New edition arrived today to join the collection of 65 currently
I can't see how you are keeping the dust off...
He asks the dust nicely to go away
Nah; i just give them all a once over every week. Bit of effort but heyo!
