Ferrari 512 TDF - BBR

"Gialli Francorchamps"

Not really in the core of my collection but just a very good opportunity to get one at a bargain price.





I see it is described as a Giallo Modena Ferrari 512tdf but as several versions seem to be called the same way based on body colour, I prefer calling it a Francorchamps 512tdf as it reminds me livery of the late 50s/early 60S ferraris of Belgian Team Francorchamps

"Bullit"

Ford Mustang 390 GT - Auto Art (Bullit)

This one is not really in the heart or spirit of my 1/18th collection either (High end, special cars...).
I originally bought just as an opportunity and just because I liked the movie. We had a talk with friends and it came to Ford Mustangs, Steve Mc Queen, Bullit, etc...
I ultimately bought it, quite liked it but I later felt disappointed when I really got into learning about that car finding how AutoArt failed to pick details of the movie car. I was just about to sell it when I decided to try and update it.

Below is a link to customizing details here on a dedicated Diecastxchange post.

"Road & TRack DB4 GTs"

Both are CMC Aston Martin DB4 GTs

White one is Le Mans 1961 #14 - Crewed by French "Franc" and Jean Kergen. Car is a DNF. This car did well until 23rd hour and last pit stop when engine would never restart.

The absolute jews in the 1/18 diecast world. Love the CMC 312P and GTO especially, though the NART 512BBLM also deserves special mention too. Great to see another Goodwood green DB4GTZ too.

"Alfa Romeo storia"

This is my Alfa set

All together



Then a double twin set :
Alfa Romeo 33TT12 1975 Sports car World Champion (by auto art Signature) and the 1951 Alfetta 159M as raced by JM Fangio (by Exoto)



... and the Alfa Romeo 8C - 2900B that almost won the 24 hour Le Mans 24 race in 1938 and the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS which won the 1930 Mille Miglia with Tazio Nuvolari at the steering wheel. They are CMC models...



All four are a testimony the the glorious racing past of the name.

"Alpine"

When I was a child, the Alpine A110 was the first my dreamcar...I was small, low, and swift. The Kyosho Alpines may be a little less High End models than the rest of my collection but these Kyoshos may be the best Alpine A110s in scale and I had to have one (uhhh two), in my collection. They are very different one from the other.

The 1971 rally car was still very close aesthetically to the road car. The 1973 rally car was much improved. It was to become the first world rally car championship winner.

Alpine A110 - Monte Carlo rally 1971 winner (Ove Andersson - David Stone) - Kyosho


Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 1973 winner (Jean-Pierre Nicolas - Michel Vial) - Kyosho
