2012 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - BBR

1963 Aston Martin DB5 - AutoArt

1998 Mercedes-Benz G500 LWB (W463) - AutoArt
2002 Maybach 62 - AutoArt
2002 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG (R230) - Maisto

Thanks for all the compliments! Along with the 599 GTO which I don't have a model of, the F12 is one of my favourite front-engine V12 Ferraris.

Here is a Ferrari F40 light weight by Kyosho alongside a Ferrari Enzo by Hot Wheels.

An unusual pairing of the F40 light weight and an Aston Martin DB5 by AutoArt.

And the DB5 just by itself.

Hello and welcome! I also like the F12 but had the chance to get the HWE, at least it's fully openable. BTW, is that Enzo the Foundation? The real wheels seem to protrude a bit rom the wheel arches and that rear grille is definitelly a solid piece of plastic... As for the Aston Martin DB5, that an old AutoArt, right? Honestly, I always thought there was something wrong with its proportions, the waist line seems a bit too tall and the wheels themselves dont look very good IMHO.

Yes the details are pretty lacking on that Enzo which I got some 15 years ago as it is not HWE. Does the HWE version have open mesh in the front and rear grills?

And no that DB5 is the updated AutoArt version in 2012, as the DB5 is one of my favourite cars, I unfortunately paid top dollar for it on eBay. While I agree the shape could be improved, I do like the paint, headlights and interior details.

Here are some of my older models, a Ferrari F430 Spider by Hot Wheels Elite alongside a Porsche 997 Carrera 4S by Norev.

And the rears.

There's not that much difference between the Foundation and the Elite Enzo (they use the same moulding). The front radiator and side intakes are closed plastic, only the engine bonnet and rear have mesh grille. Obviously, the engine and interior have more detail and the brake discs are photoetched (which given the car has carbon-ceramic discs I can't understand why...) and the tyres are made of softer rubber. Also, I'm not sure if the Foundation has it but the Elite carries a handbag under the front bonnet.

Yeah, I know what you mean on the DB5, those headlights indeed look better than the older AutoArt and I've now noticed it has a photoetched grille, the older had chromed plastic. Still don't understand why they didn't upgrade the wheels...

Nice 430 Spider BTW, I'm not that fond of the F430 but it's still cool though, regardless of its (very) oversized wheels!

I see, unfortunately the foundation Hot Wheels Enzo doesn't have the handbags and I think the mesh grill would make quite a big difference.

From what I understand the updated DB5 by AutoArt did contain somewhat improved spoke wheels, but definitely inferior to the ones found on AutoArt's own Jaguar E-type as well as HWE's Ferrari 250 California.

Yeah the F430 is definitely not one of my favourites either and those oversized wheels are indeed very odd. That being said, I don't think they look that great on the real car as well.

Here is an Audi RS3 sportback in nardo grey by GT Spirit.

And the same model on top of my own car.

Ooh. The model is really nice! GT Spirit always does a good job of their exteriors!

I like your RS3 as well! I think the colour looks nice with the black grille.

Here is a 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO by Hot Wheels Elite. Arguably Ferrari's first proper supercar, these have recently transacted above US$3mn.Attached File  IMG_6042.JPG (1).jpg   59.78K   2 downloads

Here is the 1985 288 GTO alongside a 1965 DB5, inspired by someone's actual garage.

Also wanted to imitate the garage of a prominent Japanese Ferrari collector, but I swapped out the 1985 328GTB with the more significant 1985 288 GTO.

Thanks! Given the space constraints, I try to limit myself to maybe 10-15 of my absolute favourite cars.
