Hi everyone,

Just stumbled upon this forum as I was Googling for a 1:18 model of the 300ZX and came across one of the posts. Not really a DX enthusiast (yet?), but I'm just looking to decorate my shelves with models of my favourite cars.  It's really difficult to find cars that I want, and I didn't realize a nicely made 1:18 can be hundreds of dollars on Amazon / ebay!  

Nice to meet you all!

Regards,
Sky

Welcome from Toronto! Where in Canada?

Also don't worry about money. Most of these things appreciate in value so you can either get your money back or even a bit more than that.

Thanks for all the welcome messages.  I'm from Vancouver, one of the warmest cities in Canada and very close to Whistler where they had the 2010 Winter Olympics.

I actually tried posting here a few weeks ago, but my post didn't get approved - still not sure what was wrong with it.  Anyway, I'm not sure what are some good brands for diecasts.  The one I want to get most now is the 1:18 late model Acura RSX (Integra DC5 in Japan).  I only found it made by one company which I haven't seen mentioned here.  Not sure if I can post a link to them or if that's frowned upon.  If you guys have any ideas where I can find such a car that'd be much appreciated!

The only other models I have is a 1:18 XJ220 which received pretty poor review in this forum, and a S2000, both Maisto.
