Love the collection. I have never seen a 1/43 model in any store. I only see them on the internet. I want to get some soon because I have seen 1/43 models that I have not seen in other scales.

Yeah, the Zonda F was starting to get rare when I got it. Luckily ebay came to the rescue lol
Anyway I will post another batch of pics when two 1/43's I ordered the other day come in. One is a Spark 2010 Jaguar C-X75 concept and the other is a True Scale 1992 Porsche 966 LMP that raced at Sebring under the Brumos Porsche colors.

Very nice collection. I am trying to talk myself out of buying the Howmet at the moment and seeing yours doesn't help!
You will like the 966. its gorgeous.
I am waiting for the Sunoco version but the Brumos is tempting.

GET IT, the Howmet is awesome. Lots of engine detail considering it is a resin 1/43 also. :nice:

Porsche and the Jag concept for me.
TSM is coming out with a Sunoco 966 that I want to get but the Brumos is very appealing.
One can't have too many 917's and the Jag is gorgeous.
All quality pieces.

After looking at pics of the 1/1 Sunoco 966, I think I might have to get it too :drool5:
Right now I am really loving these little gems from Spark and TSM.  :wavetowel2:
Oh, and of course more pics:

Here is another random pic:

Was testing out a camera a friend gave me, a Canon A650IS. Similar to my old Canon SD630, but has a bunch more features, so I am still getting the hang of it lol...

Anyway I was experimenting earlier with one of my display cases and this was the result:

Will probably do it to several more cases so I can display my entire 1/43 collection  :wavetowel2:

I love all the Jaguar models you've shown!  :10:
Spark's Porsche 917K Daytona seem to be the most popular Spark 1:43 model on this forum. Almost everyone who collects 1:43 models have it including me

More great models, also nice to see how you work with display cases which gives me a lot of inspiration on how to solve the display issues that always seems to be present. :)  :occasion14:

Some pieces that I fancy in your collection...well done and two thumbs up!

"I have to admit I dont understand 1:43. 1:12 and larger I get, but most 1:43 I have seen (MOST) dont look like real cars. They are usually off in some way."
