On my wishlist, I have a grand total of...wait for it...0! :giggle

Why none? Well, partly because of a lack of space in my diecast cabinet, but mainly because of Minichamps' refusal to make most of 2007's F1 cars in 1/18 scale (namely the Honda RA107) :-(

My current wishlist is pretty small, just 9 porsches

Minichamps 906 LH #30 Le Mans
Minichamps 911 1983 Cabriolet
UT 993 cabriolet
UT 911 GT1 1997 #6/7 Warsteiner
Norev 911 Turbo 1975
UH 917 #22 1971 Le Mans winner
AUTOart 996 GT3 R plain white
Revell 911 Turbo Slantnose
Maisto 996 4S

Most of these are cars that I've passed on previously and later changed my mind.
So 2008 will be mainly looking forward to new releases. 2007 has been good for porsche collectors and hopefully this trend continues.  :happy

This is my wish list for models that don't exist at the moment and would like Autoart or GMP or Exoto or Minichamps to produce.

I would like a decent 1/18 scale of the Ford GT40 preferabley in a dark blue.  I have a 'centrefold' from a 60's Road & Track magazine showing a Sebring GT40 #72 and I have always liked that model.  I have  Jouef Evolution Gulf GT40 which is better that most of the budget models and I had Gulf Oil decals specialy made  for it.  I would also like a decent Ferrari 330 P4 'hardtop' without the sidemirrors moulded into the front fenders.

Also,   a 2008 Ferrari 575 Zagato in red without the 60th anniversary paint job.

I don't tend to go after too many set cars, often buying on a whim if it fits my collection, but this year, I definitely want:

997 GT3 RS in orange
Maisto RS4 cabrio in yellow
Minichamps RS4 saloon and avant in blue and red respectively
Kyosho R8 in black

Most of the new BMW DEs too, of course.

The more I look, the harder to find and more expensive my wishlist becomes

GMP 1970 Roadrunner in in-violet (HTF 1st release)
Kyosho Ferrari F40 in red (can't seem to find one for the last 2 months)
Kyosho Lamborghini Countach 5000s in red (easier to find than the F40 ?)
Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari F430 Scuderia in red
GMP 1993 Mustang Cobra in red
Kyosho Audi R8 in white
Hot Wheels Super Elite Ferrari 599 GTB in red
Hot Wheels Ferrari 575 Zagato (strictly a donor, new wheels for the 599)
AUTOart 2004 Mustang Mach 1 in azure blue (HTF)
Welly 1986 Mustang GT in red

I'm sure the list will get bigger with new releases
Come on wallet, don't fail me now.
