I bought in 2014, 19 models = 1115 euro
In 2015, 14 models = 1198 euro
In 2016, 13 models = 1180 euro, all 1:18.

I think so. . . For next year I have a plan to buy 5 models and I plan to stick to it. No matter what they release, I will not get it. Only those 5 (and all PMA brabus models in 1:43) and that is it. . . That is it, I am drawing a line. . .

Lol, I doubt I will ever hit 100 models in a year. Last year was my record at 37 1/18's, which was split fairly evenly between opening and non-opening models. This year I got 22 models, with only 3 being opening ones. GT Spirit and Otto made the bulk of my purchases with their great subject matter. Next year I think I will go for more LeMans cars, as I have a race car itch that needs to be scratched. :nice:

I'm about where I want to be with my collection now. I splurged a bit on exotos around the middle of the year and just recently bought the two cmc's and autoart. I'm also selling a lot of my collection and giving up on resin. Next year will be leaner I think. I'll get the autoart ra272, cmc's d50 if it's out and the pricing isn't insane. If autoart come out with the 962 I'll get that too, but I doubt it. I'll continue to sell a lot too.

i always love seeing these lists, what your priorities were, how they differ, and the diversity to your collections.

You know I said I was done for 2016... I *may* have ordered something else :) Should be here in a few days. Pics to come :)
