Does anybody collect car miniatures??
What scale? I used to collect 1:18 scale Models.
I got a few 1:18s im tryin to get rid of
Well..I like to buy them or make models...but they always seem to light on fire or get run over orrr shot up :oops:
I have a few 1:18's myself...I wanna start collecting smaller scale models though, as some of the detailing is amazing. And you can fit more onto a shelf lol
I collect 1:43 models but i´ve some 1:18
It´ll be a good idea to put photos of our miniatures...:thumbs:
I star with the photos...
Mercedes-Benz SL 500
i collect DUBS die cast. only the muscle cars though.
I've been spending money on little cars (and some not so little) for well
over 40 years. I do not discriminate between die-cast, plastic, pewter,
tin, etc. I am also not concerned with scale or value. If I see something
I like, I buy it no matter how cheesy it may be. How many people do you
know with three kids training potties, all of them old Beetles in different
That being said I do have some extremely valuable cars, but because I collect them for my own pleasure only they're not for sale at any price. For reasons that may be obvious, most of my stuff (I don't consider it a collection) is Air Cooled VW's, probably 90%. At any rate here are a few of my latest acquisitions, and yes I suck as a photographer.
The first two I stumbled across tonight while wandering around Wal-Mart after supper. Yes they are Dubs, but more importantly they're V-Dubs.
The next two are some that my beautiful wife scored for me a few weeks ago. They're cheap, they're plastic, but they have decent detail and I like 'em.
