    That is a very good thing to put some time into doing. :tup:

    I wonder if I've finally reduced the numbers to under 400 cars in my collection now.

    Hello! I have some models too ^_^

    These are 1\24
    Mostly Bburago models. Some are from the time when they were made in Italy.

    The Zonda is 1\18. I don't know the scale of the Diablo and F40. They are a bit bigger than 1\24
    Peugeot is 1\64 and I don't know the scale of the VW. Old models :/

    Picked up a white/gold 1/18 scale Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS from GT Spirit to go with my Spark version in red. Overall, I really like it, though it has some issues. The wheel color bugs me the most, it's a bit too yellow rather than a proper gold. It also doesn't match the side decals. The wheel arches also seem slightly too rounded, rather than flattened out at the top.

    Besides that, I quite like it. A bargain compared to the hard to find Spark version, that's for sure.

    More 1:43 have arrived, photo dump. Classic Porsche appreciation.

    Reminds me so much of Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed.

    Gonna start buying more 1:18's when my shelf arrives....cause i just ran out of room. But here are two recent purchase, Autoart Carerra GT(black) and Motor Max Carerra GT(silver), also bought a yellow UT 993 GT, but it's still on the way.

    And another arrival of 1:43, but these were hard to find..

    It has arrived :bowdown:
    [​IMG]

    And went immediately back into the box because I have zero space to put it :lol: The plan is to build a 'super(hyper)car garage', but first I am to finish my Porsche garage. I'll use that one for trial and error (with lighting) so I can finish the supercar garage better. I decided to go a little bit wider than the holy trinity so it'll be: Porsche 918, McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, Lamborghini LP750-4, Pagani Huayra and Bugatti Chiron (pretty much do all the super/hypercar brands justice). The reason I bought the P1 now is because I really wanted a yellow one and simply couldn't wait :p

    Speaking of which... Recent 36 model haul damage.

    [​IMG]

    My last big bulk buy was back in 2015 when i bought 30 ebbro/kyosho ミニカ 1:43 models, it was 1,218$, got a good deal on bulk shipping with hobbyjapan.
    [​IMG]

    And if you're all wondering how i afford it, i invest and day trade since 2014, own a good deal of high profit stocks.

    My next buy...will be even crazier...soon as i get my shelf... i screenshot and catalog all my purchases as receits. It's for my love of cars and the hobby.

    Lol well I have other hobbies to feed other than 1/18, such as the $300 1/10 scale Tamiya touring car I just bought. That and I need a new TV and some other crap I had been pushing off.

    I have six figures of my money involved in my different types of investments, and I have once spent over $4000 on 1:18s in a month a couple of years ago, one of those models was a BBR FXXK.

    I'm in my late 30s though so this is not really an accomplishment.

    I'm pushing this hobby off to focus on the car now.

    Sorry to drag this thread off on a tangent, but I picked up these 2 model planes in Sydney. I paid $150 for the pair, and that's very expensive considering how small they are! Worth it though.:D
