Re: Any 1/18 scale collectors? (Mgriz)

I've seen it before, it's got some serious details to match with the real thing very cool. I'm looking to get a few of the GT cars myself, like a Galati Audi S4, and Porsche 911 GT2s.

I've got about 15 or so, mainly VW Beetles & Busses. I prefer building plastic kits, but the occasional diecast just speaks to me.....You guys know how it is.

I've got 3 Mercs and an Alfa from the 1995 ITC series. Love the 1/18 scale but just don't have the room for them.
I've also got Dario Franchitti's ITC Mercedes in 1/43 scale.

Re: Any 1/18 scale collectors? (MaTTK)

Yup! I collect them too! My first was a Ferrari 348 that was a present when I was a kid, after that car, I have been addicted to them. Currently I have 63 of them
. I can never get enough of them! But the number didn't grow for a long time because of car mods........

Re: Any 1/18 scale collectors? (16v)

The only 1/18 scale car I have right now ( hoping to get more) is the raced version of the C5R Corvette that the Earnhardt's drove in 2001. The Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. It is SO COOL with the dirt & dings, etc... on it.

There are still quite a few floating around. I believe there were two versions of the ABT. Try http://www.sportcraftcars.com. The last time I was there, there was one left. Ebay also has these cars often. Ironically, you can find these cars cheaper than it was a few years back. It should be somewhere around $25-$35.
As for the BMW M3, I would wait until the Autoart version comes out. The quality is a hell of a lot better, and the price should be cheaper than the Kyosho. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll do a Laguna Seca Blue Cabriolet.
