Hi Eddy

Shame the pics are so big, Thats not the Miura i was after, that is A metro 1:24. but it looks good enough hey. I have more models, just didnt get round to taking pics of them all.

Thanks.

Very cool Dave, glad to see everything went well. It's always good to see a nice and varied collection. I had no idea that the Harrod's McLaren had a dedication to Ayrton Senna on it. That makes it even cooler (if that's possible).

Do you have a favorite theme/interest? Mine is Ferrari, then F1, then All others...
Are you a F1 fan as well?

Hi Tony

I have followed F1 for about 30 years now, My team is Williams, not too good these days, but they are getting there, Plus the drivers they have had in that team over the years in unbelievable, Mansell, prost, senna, etc.... But i always route for the Brits, Button and Hamilton.

Dont really have a theme on my collection. some mean a lot to me i.e 787, XJR9. Lancia Delta, cars i have grown up watching. I thought about adding my daughters peppa pig car. haha.. maybe one day.

Do you think the pics are too big?

There are some where you could probably take down a little bit, maybe crop out some of the white space around the models. This should make it a little faster for those on mobile devices or slower connections. I always like the larger pics for the engine details though. If you are interested we will be discussing the Bahrain GP live in the Sports Forum in 20 minutes.

Hi Doublefox

Thanks for the comments, I think Williams would be a lot better if they had a world class driver.. Alonso, button, vettel, hamilton. but i cant see them leaving their own teams any time soon can you?

Checked out your Viper collection, very cool my friend.
