I bought 8 models in 2016:

Tecnomodel Alfa Romeo Scighera
Maisto Corvette C4 ZR-1
Maisto Corvette C4 Grand Sport
Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 550 Barchetta
GT Spirit Koenig Competition Evolution
MR Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato
Chrono Lotus Elise GT1
MotorMax Pagani Zonda C12 S

I did some refocusing, I sold almost half of my collection and bought different colors of some of the ones that I sold. My goals for 2017 are to buy more models (1 per month) and get my entire collection on display.

Dang, I'm on vacation and in eager to get back home and see what I got this year ha. Oh boy.

Great adds everyone! This topic every year really scares me lol
You're not the only one that it scares..LOL :giggle:  I'm not brave enough to add up the prices, as I don't want to be sad looking at how out of control my spending on toys have become  :rolleyes:  Hopefully, I am reigning it it in a bit with better self control in 2017..but I just bought another model yesterday :dizzy:  ..but, I'm still having fun, so that counts for something :nice:  ..and if I want to sell them, they often appreciate better than gold..so, win win! :occasion14:

Damn, its such a relief to see cray lists in here. I am slightly embarrassed about getting around 50 cars in 2016. I am currently doing a purge. Thought I had around 70 cars, turns out its closer to 90. Too many.

Well here is mine. about 98% accurate I think. I am missing 3 Michael Schumacher F1 cars and maybe 1 or 2 others...or I might have 1 or 2 others in the pic that were from 2015. I need to document this better haha.

2016 was a somewhat 'dry' year for me - for various reasons :bawling: - and I'm sorry that I don't have any pics to back it up :lamende: - but for the record:


28/02 1:18 GMP Ferrari 312 P, black prototype

29/03 1 18 Kyosho Ferrari 250 GTO (3 vent) High End

18/04 1:18 Bauer 3293-J4 Bugatti Royale Coup De Ville

21/05 1:18 GMP Ferrari 412 P #25 Le Mans 24 1967

03/06 1:18 Kyosho Lamborghini Miura Jota SVJ

15/08 1:18 Paragon, John Lennon Rolls Royce

28/08 1:18 Kyosho Ferrari 250 GTO Rouge (street - short pipe) Kyosho High End

06/11 1 :18 Kyosho Lamborghini Urraco Rallye (wing version)


However, although frugal, IMO it's definitely been enjoyable, and a year of discipline (concentrating on my Wish List) - collecting by preference, and resisting that whim!  :rolleyes: :twocents:

Although I bought a lot this year, your last sentence really hits home for me too. It's been really enjoyable searching for the models I missed out on and focusing on cars I really wanted. I didn't buy a model to "fill a gap" or "finish the collection" etc, so it was truly enjoyable. There were lots of models that I saw a good price for and wanted to buy, but then realizing that I never was looking for that model in the first place. So I hear ya man! On to 2017!
