Hi guys, welcome to my collection thread.
My collection focuses mostly on modern Sports/Supercars, and are mostly from Autoart, Hot Wheels Elite, Kyosho and Minichamps.

I did not know where to start initially, but I guess an overview would be the best way. :D


My collection is housed in an IKEA Bjursta display cabinet, which I bought when I started the hobby.
Each shelf can hold up to 7 cars, which is pretty good, IMO.
(I couldn't get a clear full shot of the entire cabinet, so the only alternative was to take the top and bottom seperately.)
Posted ImagePosted Image

Most of the shelves have a specific theme, and I will be posting pictures of those over the coming days.
Meanwhile, let's start from the top, with the Ferrari shelf.
All of the Ferraris on this shelf are from HWE, which have really stepped up their game.  :clap:

Posted Image
The reason why they are in their boxes, is because almost all of them have some form of paint bubbling. :gaah:
I normally take my indoor pictures in my 'photobooth', which is really a cardboard box with papers in it.  :lol:
Now, let me start. firstly with the V8-Engined Street Ferraris.

California, with a wheel swap from the George Michael California.
Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

430 Scuderia

458 Italia

Nice collection! I like what you did to the California. It certainly looks better than the stock rims.

Thanks! It's pretty crazy how the 458 got rare so quickly,but there are deals out there for sure :D

Thanks! The stock rims on the Cali was what deterred me from getting one when they were readily available, and it took me quite some time to find one locally.

I bought the Scuderia at a local Kyosho dealer two years ago, and was pretty surprised they had two there, despite the rarity.
Prices are pretty crazy nowadays though... :gaah:

The bubbling was mostly on the hood of the car, a small cluster of bubbles in the centre. It isn't that visible under normal lighting, but still irriating nevertheless.

Thanks!
I made the UK Plates using a website called www.licenseplates.tv, they allow you to customize plates from most countries.
After you customize the plates, simply insert the image file onto a Word document, resize it, and print it.

I only have about half the SV colors released, not planning to get the newer colors in the future though, prefer the black skirts on the first release :)
I would say that the orange on the SV is brighter than the LFA's, which is more yellowish-orange.
