Can't wait, Chaim for the photos. :yahoo:

Come on Nick you know you want to join the Big Boys Toys side of things and a 1/12 would be a centre piece in your stunning Lambo Collection. :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:
Finding a Countach in this colour is a different matter though.
I already did a small search on the net for a 1:12 Kyosho Countach (busted... :giggle: ) :lol:  I think it will not be easy to find one like you said :yahoo:

We all know if Nick hits the 1:12 game, he is gonna hit it mega hard :giggle: :twocents:
I might get one, but don't tell my wife :giggle:  You guys are the kings of the 1:12's :yahoo:

It is possible that I join the 1:12 club, but the question is when :yahoo: And I need a larger cabinet :giggle:

Thanks Nick, everything needs to get larger in the 1/12 scale but so worth the swap. :yahoo: :occasion14:

Thanks Cristi, you will have an even slimmer chance of getting one in 1/12 as time goes on as they just are not available to buy unless you fall lucky on one. :hope: :occasion14:

Wow, the white Countach is a dream. In 1/12 even more so. It must be a blast everytime you see this big white beast displayed in your collection.

I hope you get them for display sooner than later mate, you deserve to enjoy your babies.

I have been revisiting your thread today, what a amazing collection, really inspiring. I have some 1/12 models too, but i just found several models i didn't even know existed in 1/12 scale, because of you thread. Like the 1/12 CMC Mercedes Mclaren SLR. Stunning model. Congrats again!

Thanks for the Great Complements, it's taken years of dedicated collecting to get the rare ones when they came along so its no easy task to get something that gets snapped up so quickly. More to come in the next few Months, really nice ones too. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:

Holy Grail time now and what a stunner i have lined up for you Guys, IMO. I got a message from Francisco at Raceline models ( a HUGE thank you) giving me first refusal to the BBR/Raceline model shop special 1/12  2017 FXXK Evo in Fire Red, #4 of 5 as i had mentioned it was a model i was after on Facebook. This is such a stunning colour in front of me and photos do not do it justice, the best i can show you is when it landed Yesterday and i took a few quick snaps with my phone to show how nice the colour is. The rest of the photos are from outside to show better detail to this Beauty. I have this in White too but this is the natural colour it should be, So happy to add this to the collection, what a Stunner.

BBR certainly know how to make crisp models with awesome paint, and that interior makes it hard to tell these are photos of a model and not the real deal :10: ! Congrats Darren! :yahoo:  :eusa_clap:

Here is the latest model to arrive and i love the Rally theme Top Marques have been producing for a while now. This is the Top marques 1/12 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale HF Minichamps Winner 1992 White/Martini. This is another Fantastic looking model and i can't wait for them to bring out more of these Rally/ road rally versions in 1/12th.

Thanks, Nick. This is where i may be slowing down as i am looking to get some Grail models which are a lot more money than these i have shown. I have been looking at my "list to get" and realised i am buying models but not the grails and if i could get the Grails the rest will follow later from my list. I like to focus on a model or two at a time so although i have a few on order some paid and some not fully paid for i will get these as and when they come out but focusing more on the Grails from now on. Is a Grail still a Grail when you have got it in your collection ? I have had many grails in the past but they then become part of my collection and are forgotten a bit as a Holy grail.?

You have an amazing collection.  The details on these 1/12 models are incredible, such a treat to see in pictures but i am sure it is even better to hold in person.

Thank you Sir. Many more collectors are looking for that something different to the usual 1/18th scale as the lockdowns have made them fed up with what is offered and grossly inflated prices. If you have never seen a 1/12th up close just see what the larger scale does to you, you will be pleasantly surprised for just a few dollars more you can get much more presence for your money, there is a difference and fellow collectors who have bought the larger scale models will agree they are the next progression from 1/18.
Although i sold my 1/18 collection many years ago now i do have quite a few 1/18 but at the higher end, 1/12 is my go to scale by choice. :danke: :yahoo: :occasion14:

I don't think I own a "Holy Grail", I have a few models that I really wanted, and after some time I was able to get them. It depends on how you see a holy grail. I have one model that I really want, and I think I'm not going to get one of them, not now or not in ten years. So this is my holy grail, I think :occasion14:
But I think you should get the models that you really like, and not buy 10 others, if you have the opportunity to buy one Holy grail! :yahoo:

Thanks Nick. Out of interest what is the one model you really want ?
I want a lot of models still now after all the ones i have added over the years and a handful of them i have been putting off for one reason or another but this is the time i make the move to get the hardest, rarest or most expensive ones, once and for all. Yes it's going to take time but keeping focus on these as and when they pop up or i have the chance of getting them will be well worth it. As they say "and photos to prove or it never happened" :yahoo: :occasion14:
