From this professional's viewpoint, he considers the cars we collect "TOYS".
In his own words: Some die cast makers are really doing a nice job with racing subjects and classic cars. I have looked seriously at the arena of doing modifications on these models to take them out of the "toy" range and turning them into viable replicas.
So unless the cars in your collection are super detailed, they're considered "toys". Hey, don't get mad at me, I'm just summoning up what he said. :giggle
I don't get offended by the term "toys". People call other things "toys" like a 1:1 Ferrari collection, a spare Lear-jet or their significant other (specially if it's the 2nd or 3rd much younger one). :giggle
I am thinking about ordering the DVD that he has for sale. I am sure I can get some great pointers from it.
Did you all the the SCRATCH built GT-40? :nicejob :nicejob :nicejob Even ol' Shel' if in awe!
