I know most of you have a grand collection and are capable of opening your own 1/18 specialty diecast store with your private collection alone.
I myself have 43, and my friends call me insane a hardcore collector.  But I'd like to show them what real collectors have!
Pictures are highly recommended for this poll!!!! :angel:

I've got 34 models but I had about 30 more which I either sold because I didn't want them any more or were ruined by melting wheels.

I'm getting awfully close to 100 1/18's. However, if I count all scales I have over 600. :angel:

I have a little over 150 pieces, majority of them are 1/18 models. And the rest are accessories that just compliment the collections, such as 1/64 corvette semi trucks that I display along with my corvettes.

I'm right at 100 even right now, in 1:18 cars. I've got about 20 more 1:18s. 18 of the 1:24s are Ferraris, 2 are Nascar, and 95 of the 1:18s are Ferraris. The other 5 are: McLaren F1, 65 Mustang, Ford GT90, Shelby Cobra, and a BMW M Coupe. All of the Ferraris are unique as well (except for a few that I have multiple colors in, but that number is less than 10). The F1 versions of cars (Hot Wheels, Minichamps, and Exoto) account for an even 30 vehicles (with more on the way). Once I get my hands around a digital camera, I'll snap some pics of 'em.

My friends all think I'm nuts as well, and I just confuse the uninitiated when I show up somewhere and announce that I bought a few Ferraris that day.

I just placed a cork board in my garage measuring 20x10 that I have plans of tacking 1:64 Hot Wheels's on. So far I have managed to cover maybe 1/5 of it. Not too sure as to how many blister packs are on it.

Counting all scales, I would guess 3-400 maybe more.
I gave up counting a while ago.
I do know that I have bought 53 models this year (1:18 and 1:24 only
Not sure how many 1:43s :?

Should you collect 1:43?

In my opinion, no if you can afford 1:18 models. First of all, most people will think of them as toys, while 1:18 models can look as something classy if you have a few.

Is this poll for Ferrari's only? Because if its not, you need to make a new one.   http://www.diecastxc...tyle_emoticons/default/signlol.gif:  


I have almost 40 F355's, half of them are in construction right now. ;-)

Still counting... :br:

The home office plays double duty and just recently the garage has had an entire wall cleared out in anticipation of a display cabinet. :angel:
