Hey everybody!  Great site (except for the search tool)!  I always come here to get the latest news, I am also stoked to see i am not alone in this ridiculously expensive hobby!  Please see the attached phot of my current showcase.  It really sets off my battle station!
Attached File  MVIMG_20190627_203101 - Copy.jpg   143.59K   1 downloads

My scale of choice is 1:18, and I seem to gravitate to AutoArt (AUTOart) models, though i don't have a particular loyalty to them, they just seem to release the models i want most, with the level of detail i am seeking.  In the left cabinet top to bottom i have the 2005 Ford GT (AUTOart), 2017 Ford GT (AUTOart), Porsche Carrera GT (AUTOart), Acura NSX type R (AUTOart), Ferrari F355 (Hot Wheel Elite), Dino 246 GT (Hot Wheels Elite), Shelby GT350 (Ertl), Lamborghini Countach (bburago).  In the right hand cabinet i have Mclaren F1 (AUTOart), McLaren F1 LM (AUTOart), Shelby Cobra 427 (Shelby Collectibles), Shelby Cobra Concept (AUTOart), Lamborghini Reventon (AUTOart), Lamborghini Murcielago (AUTOart), 2005 Ford Mustang Concept Coupe (Beanstalk Group), and 2005 Mustang Concept Convertible (Beanstalk Group).  There are also various Hot Wheels scattered about in the cabinet along side the 1:18 scale guys.

I also have a 1:12 McLaren F1 by Paul Model Arts not shown in the picture.

Keep up the great work on the site!

Full disclosure: I wanted to start becoming a contributing member of the community so that I may start to use the market place for purchases.

Yeah in general 1:12 are amazing, but pricey.  I figured in general the 1:18 was the best compromise between price and level of detail.
