I'm thinking "Small" is reference to their individual size lol. Looking forward to all the pics!

Give us some time, we are a lot of people collecting and posting x-)
I love the unique R34, and that GT40 is one of the "top-10" from my collection, no doubt! It's a pity when you compare it with Exoto's MKII and IV because the engines and cockpits are mind blowing, but the exterior of he Spark is really superb...

Do you have the True Scale 'Vette from your avatar? It's a brutality...

You're kidding, right?

Don't let a lack of comments deter you from sharing your models...:)

Everybody appreciates/likes praise, but consider receiving them a bonus...;)

I don't show my collection for praise or bonus, just for the pleasure to share

A topic is alive and pleasing with notices, discussions between collectors on different models...


Comments are essential to share the experience around our common passion Posted Image

That Spark GT40 is a great looking Car and good clear photos the BBS wheels on the R34 look great too,i remember when they were all the rage a good few years ago.Don't be deterred by not as many comments as you thought you would get as people look but don't comment on nearly all of what they are viewing(me included) and it seems to me lots of comments come in waves over time.You have started with a brilliant thread and we are all waiting to see more,the fact that the comments are not being made yet is we all comment freely when we feel we personally want to at any given thread and that's the beauty of this Forum-no pressure,so keep posting and the comments will come-you are doing great. :nice: :danke: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

Really regret missing the Spark GT40 and your pictures are adding salt to the wound. Congratulations on your recent addition - if you ever want to sell it you know who to PM.

Love that Spark GT40.  For that matter I like pretty much anything in a Gulf livery.  Hopefully getting that one soon.

Looking forward to seeing more of your collection.

Another legend of Le Mans : Truescale Corvette Greenwood "Spirit Of Le Mans" 1976

Announced 3 years ago, finally available, I received it last week,

I love this car and the 1/18 scale reproduction is perfect,

Unfortunately without opening parts but it has no importance.

The model is amazing, very wide, well detailed.... :drool5:

That Corvette looks great, but I think they're asking too much money for it. I wouldn't mind a sealed model if it's cheap, or at least sub-$150. But for $216, it's a little too much for me.

Thank you ! I understand your point of view. i usually don't buy sealed model but the Spark GT40 and this Corvette are only available in resin

I spent 230 $ for the TSM Vette, it's quite expensive but it's one of my favorite car...
