Have to admit to having a few diecasts myself. By a few a mean a house full. On display in my living room, I have 2 x 1/18th Corvettes, also in 18th scale i have the 2003 Bentley, DBR9 and 1991 Mazda. The Mazda is an awesume model and well worth the £99 it sells for.

Then theres about 10 Nascars in 1/24 scale and about 53 rally cars in 1/43rd.

Thats just the mantle piece , tv top accounted for. Theres also a display case down stairs and two rooms full up stairs as well.

I saw the 1:18 91 Mazda on a stall at LM last year. It realy was one of the best models I have seen. finances were running a bit llow so I didn't buy it. Maybe this year, it's just not the same buying them on the web as buying at LM

I was lucky enough to get hold of the 2003 1/18th Bentley autographed by all 3 drivers - Pride of my collection !

Both Sparkmodel and Minichamps have released their 1/43rd scale 2006 Le Mans Winner. This model should now be available at your local diecast retailer.

Already in my cabinet. It's the first time I have brought a Spark model. Pretty good, not quite the same quality as Starter but IMO better than Minichamps.
Still waiting for them to produce the RfH dome

The 2005 RFH Dome may not be long since they do have the mold prepared as evidenced by this most recent release.

Exoto has announced they will produce in 1/18th scale the Jan Lammers 1988 Silk Cut Jaquar Le Mans winner. No reference to a release date though.

I was looking at that one too. € 70,- is quite a lot but it's nice. But is it worth it.. I don't know yet.

I saw this 1/18 conversion representing a Minardi Champcar piloted by Robert Doornbos and I thought i'd share. Who would buy one if it was commercially available?

Nicely done model. I would not buy it, cause I think champcars are ugly, even with a Dutchie in it :D

But this looks to me like a F1 car, which he drove for Minardi two seasons ago!

I had the same idea because he isn't on slicks

Your girlfriend might feel lonely while you're in the States and decide to go shopping for clothes :D

PS: when your money is in an account it is usually not cash, is it ;)
