I've been collecting for a few years

Trying to get a scale model of every car I've ever owned


.
I ordered an evo 4 and they sent an evo 3 . ( if anyone wants an evo 3 model I've just put it on ebay )

But finally got my evo 4 . Just waiting on delivery now .

I have about 30 models so far .
Struggling with a few though .
Would you believe the hardest to find is a new shape astra van

Hi Rob from The USA! I collect in all scales. I have over 200 (and growing) 1/43rd scale cars, and trucks, but I only collect Mitsubishi items. I also must have about 45 1/18th scale, but again, only Mitsubishi.

Where do you source them from?

I have some from when I was younger, most of them are classics and supercars.

Normally ebay .. Had a few from a dealer in Japan.

Things like evo 4 , fto , gtir , landcruiser have been difficult to source.

Some are impossible . Stuggling for rover 600 series , 2008 astra van . Standard nissan sunny and a mk4 ford orion

I've only owned 6 cars :lol: Got a few models of my VI and VIII, I did find a yellow X but it was only available from some dodgy looking Chinese site that I really didn't want to give my card number to.

I always wanted my previous cars in 1:43 scale as well - but trying to find a red Fiat Panda and a couple more of my cars is really impossible :(

Not a bad hobby....I would imagine the price of these models will go up in most cases too :smthumbup:coolsm:

I tried to achieve the same, every car I owned in 1/43. Found it impossible when I hit the Impreza P1 and for some strange reason a Civic Type R FN2.

Not sure if anyone here would be interested but I've got a free-standing Oakley sunglasses display case that is now no longer needed. Would be good for displaying models. :smthumbup
