Here are some of my most recent purchases. I'm not a big fan of resin models ,but I have to exceptions sometimes.
GT spirit did Awesome job with this Bentley Turbo R. I would love to have one in diecast with opening features for this model
,but it's exterior detail and proportion is still Awesome! Also price of the model is very very reasonable for today's market!
Two thumbs up to GT spirit from me for sure!

Next are 3 Porsche 956L from PMA. I'm really glad PMA revived 956L mold and coming out with all these missing race cars. These 956L models are one of my favorites from PMA.
They have dead on proportions and pretty nice details for the price point. It's gotten whole lot expensive since their last 956L models ,but still very good for today's market IMO.

The Rollei car looks awesome. The silver suites the car well, but the from wheels look great! It is cool that the white cover is not there, I prefer it that way. Looks like the #7 car is the same with the rear wheels. And the Bentley looks awesome. I really would like to add it, but I am trying to reduce my number of modern luxury cars. Also, I kind of like the BoS Rolls more. If only I had room for everything!

Thanks for sharing you latest.

Those 956's are great and I agree with you 100% represent pretty good value and quality from PMA compared to other offerings from them. I want the plain white one that is coming out soon.

Thanks!
It's kind of weird that Rollei car has the aero cover in the rear only. Most cars have them on all four or just in the front.

Yeah, I had to check and that's how it raced. I could not find another like that. Kind of cool.

Great additions.  The new 956's look fantastic together.

Loving the Bentley R.  Great color & it looks like GTS did a fantastic job.

I picked up the Fitzpatrick Skoal Bandit 956L a few months ago and love it.  I was surprised to see tobacco makings on the car.  I think I will ad the American 100s to my collection in the near future.
