I've stopped collecting some time ago but this one gonna make me an addict again..Damn!!!

I'm in a similar position matey. I seem to be picking up the odd Exoto 934/935 these days, but nothing else.

Having said that if i was collecting like i used to, i think for new releases the only manufacturer i would be buying from would be Spark. No one else seems to be interested in releasing the subject matter Spark release, which is a shame.

Its seems that the car came and went.
There are some pieces on ebay but somehow i think that they will go fast to
And like you guys say spark has the pole position when it come to great racecar diecast other manufracter wont release (for now)
This is one of the better/nicest pizza's you can get.

I'm resisting the Lancia Lc2... I've already got the spark 962 and silk cut jag representing group c so that makes it easier...

Out now! Opinion on Spark models? Worth purchasing? It's not cheap (especially given it's a non opening resin).

They're well made, but if anything falls off inside the interior (which hapenned to a guy I know twice), good luck fixing it. Also, they use decals instead of tampo prints. If you're alright with decals and the price and the fact that it's sealed, they're solid models.

It's a lot of money but the 2002 turbo looks amazing!! Decisions decisions!

The 24hr 'Ring winning ti looks ok (and is even more expensive) but I'd rather the AutoArt 2002 Rally #76

I don't buy many BMW's apart from mainly a few M3's but the 2002 turbo looks fantastic.  Will be grabbing one.  And looks like it's pretty popular - CK had 41 when I first looked, now they have 11.
