Reason why 1:43 scale cars aren't that popular because most people including me(sorry it I offend) consider them toys and not Collectable model cars. .

Should you collect 1:43?

Quote

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.

Just picked up the Smokey Yunick #13 Camaro, had my eye on that one for quite a while.   :danbana

Plus, I stole an Eagles Race #60 Essex Wire GT-40 on eBay.  I already have one, but it wasn't boxed, and got a little thrashed in transit.   :cry

The new one is mint, in box, and I can't wait!   :woohoo

Nothing new for the past 3 weeks almost and i hope to not spend on more diecast atleast till 2005. I have already passed my quota for this year and also cabinet space over and above. Guess will have to enjoy only the pics here for a few more months.

AUTOart 911 GT3RS
AUTOart Toyota GT-One (1999, #2)
AUTOart Dodge Viper GTS-R, #56 Chamberlain Racing (55$ on Ebay!)

And I'm currently thinking about either the Minichamps 956L or the AUTOart Calsonic GT-R... most likely the 956 will be next.
