    AUTOart says on their Facebook page that a 1:18 NA2 NSX-R is in the works.

    I seriously cannot wait considering how high prices for a good 1:18 NSX-R (NA1 or NA2) are.

    I was thinking about getting the One Model NA2 Type R at one point, kinda glad I didn't lol. I still need to get an opening NC1 NSX though...

    The One Model cars are fairly expensive from what I've seen and they don't have any opening parts...

    I was pretty lucky to find an AUTOart NSX-R NA1 in Championship White for $220 CAD.

    I'm holding on my One Model considering all white painted models on the AA plastic bodyshell looked like crap.

    That said I may still get one in other colours.

    Hey Guys,

    I've got a question there's a couple of models on my list. However the models i now have are 25 year old bburago's. so i went online to look for other models and saw some minichamps are they worth the price? i'm particularly interested in this model, however i don't know if they're worth the money. can anyone share their experience on minichamps?

    My latest diecasts... in 1/43. I rather like Hong Kong buses (I have a fair few 1/76 scale ones). The other is an Italian Fiat based double decker! 32ED75B8-9B19-4592-82BF-0390C4710283.jpeg

    I also have that 1:43 Victory mkII. The only other 1:43 bus I have is the KMB Enviro 500.

    I have a handful of 1:76 HK buses too but I haven't bought any newer ones as I found them rather unattractive.

    I did get a couple of new Hong Kong 1/76 types from someone on Facebook including this E500MMC a while ago. The other was a MAN double decker which I rather like (I’ll try to get a picture of it).

    For a sealed diecast model, the Z4 is one of the better ones.

    It's plastic body though! :banghead: I still haven't committed to wiping any decals off mine yet because of this.

    You are right...My SLS GT3 is also plastic.

    I wonder do these PMAs have any diecast parts inside like their AA counterparts do.

    Only their racers are plastic though. My PMA GTR RS is pure diecast.

    This may be the case only because they make so many of these in many liveries that nobody (let's be real) really wants.

    There's this one which I found meh initially, but the colour composition isn't bad. However, I'm willing to wait until a Black Friday sale for it:

    Bought this fairly recently. I think, one of my favourite 1/76 Hong Kong buses.

    This is one of the rarer and better looking HK buses since it's regional, not easily be seen in most areas in HK.

    Added this Minichamps 1:18 of a pretty brisk land yacht to the collection.

    I also have this one. I have yet to add any post-2017 cars with the dreadful halos.

    Another couple of 1/43 models for the collection. A couple of 1/43 Reitze Citaros.

    It's a B6, but the paint and interior colour match.

    My latest additions. Figured I'd upgrade some of my 1/43 rally cars while I am at it as well as get a Gulf Blue 991 GT3 RS in 1/18.

    Goes well with my Spark of the same model. Hard to say which is better even though the Minichamps costs a fraction of the Spark.

    Australia’s biggest “toy fair” is on in Adelaide this weekend :)
    The 1:18 CLK & R8 started my collection and I bought them from this very event a few years back.

    I’ve been saving in preparation for a while now, so any mo-fo who tries getting between me and a 1:43/1:18 LMP better watch themselves :lol::lol::lol:

    The fair was massive and while there was plenty of choice for V8 Supercars & road cars; my interests were unfortunately in pretty short supply. Didn’t leave empty handed though! :D

    The Viper fits in with my 25(ish) others and the ZX was a cool, unexpected find. Very good detail overall and an opening bonnet with a miniature strut to keep it up.

    A pair of 1:43 CLK GTRs to match my 1:18 one, a very old Porsche 962 model and an Esperante road car. The guy was very surprised when I said I have a Panoz collection.

    3A2502DA-D8E9-4CD0-8022-816DAEC40A1B.jpeg
    A few rally 1:43s. Pretty eclectic mix, but I took what I could get.

    Probably more suitable in the 1:64 thread but a Dodge Daytona (2003) & Plymouth Superbird. Always liked these cars and good to have the pair :)

    Finally a mixed set of Hot Wheels Skylines was a good way to spend my left over cash. He mentioned that some were 50th Anniversary cases & US cases; implying they probably shouldn’t be opened...

    Sorry, it's not a car, but can someone tell me if this Metal Gear REX kit is "pre-coloured" as in it's pre-painted so I just need to put it together, or if it's just that the plastic is literally a colour other than grey and will need details painted on?

    I believe it is pre-painted... perhaps some assemlby will be required for major limbs and whatnot.

    Still waiting on news of a 1/43 scale DBS Superleggera. :( I know there's a 1/18 one from AutoArt, but I don't collect in that scale. May have to make an exception.

    Thank you very much. So are there like scale model expos or something? Where did that image come from?

    EDIT - Just did some google-fu, and yes there are expos just like other mediums. Super dope. Displayed at Nurnberg Toy Fair 2019. Very cool.
