Actually, come to think of it, it's actually not much more budget for the 1/12 scales that the original poster is currently collecting. 1/12 scale models are not so many. If you average one model to be about $500, that's about $10k worth seeing that there's an estimated 20 pieces thereabouts. Some here have spent more than $10k for 1/18 and not surprising even for those collecting 1/43 which can cost $500 a piece upwards. It's all about quality over quantity.

Yes, and this is why I'd consider switching to 1:12 if my must-have car (Koenigsegg) were available in it.

On the other hand, I don't even have $2000 worth of 1:18, and my collection is pretty similar to this 1:12 one in content and number of pieces.

While i would love to have the larger models,
I can't see myself ever switching. There's to many cars that i adore and 1:12 just doesn't cover them.
also, i currently have about 60 models, and all of them combined total less than $3000 so 10k is still a very large budget.
not to mention, that display is probably a couple thousand as well.

I'm not familiar with the models you collect but hitting an average of $50 for decent 1/18 models is great. If I count the same number of cars the original poster collects in 1/12 collection and collect their best model makes in 1/18, I would average about $100 at best. Maybe more if I count shipping. Still, you don't get the presence and satisfaction of the 1/12.

Heck, in no way am I switching over to 1/12. I love 1/18 (as well as 1/43) because of the car choices available. 1/12 is to fit in the high octaves of diecast collecting for me.

Love the display case and the cars. I'm starting to collect 1/12 myself after coughing up quite a bit on high detailed and rare 1/18 models. So far I've got a McLaren GTR in orange (resin) and I'm waiting for my 40th anniversary to be delivered!  The only thing I don't like is that Nissan GTR, the front looks too boxy and weird.
If you're into collecting 1/12 scale, you should check out some stuff by ModelWorkShop (autoplacemodel.com).  They do some unique 1/12 exotics at a very high end and price. Most are sold out but there are some going on eBay if you're interested. I have a few of their 1/18 models and I'm getting more soon.
Cheers

Nice Z8. Didn't even know there was a 1:12 version. Will you be getting the Z4 too? Not a fan of that one though.

I love their subject matter for 1:18. The Affolter 35th anniversary Diablo, the Koenig 512 Boxer, Koenig Countach, Veilside Murcielago transkit, and lots of other amazing stuff.

APM(autoplacemodel) does some really terrific, limited models and also transkit. Those Enzo GTC and F50 are just to die for.

@phatboi101: You should check out mmc's collection. He has some great APM and also Meko models in 1/18 and 1/12 too.

I've got the Enzo GTC and I'll be getting the F50 at some stage. The 1/12 orange McLaren GTR I have is the Meko one :) they're great models.
Kool thanks Ill have a search for him and check out his stuff.

The Z8 is the James Bond edition.

I'm actually not so much of a E85 fan. I prefer the E89. I would buy a 1/12 of that if it were available.   :occasion14:
