A question that I'm sure has come up before but without a doubt some people's answers change daily so it bears asking again.

As a relatively young and new collector on a limited budget my collection currently stands at just 16 models, all in 1:18 scale. This makes DX and all that goes with it all the more important to me, because new models only form a relatively small part of the hobby for me. But I am simply in awe of some of the collectors here. Some seem to have almost every model that gets posted!!

Exactly how many models (in which scales) do you have? Who doesn't actually know?!! I would also be interested to find out just how much of the house some of these collections take up!!

This has been asked before, but never hurts to ask for a recount. My personal collection is right around 400 1/18 scale models, the majority of which take up one entire bedroom in my three bedroom house. I have nine in a grandfather clock in my living room, as well.

Welcome to the addiction!

:cheers

At the moment I have 706 models, all 1:18ths, with several more on their way to me at the moment via eBay! It would be fair to say my collection is a bit of a monster at the moment! :giggle :cheers

With this weeks arrivals coming in, I have hit the 230 plateau.

Scales range from 1:18, 1:12, 1:10 and 1:9, the majority of them are cars with a few motorcycles as well.

I have a total of 6 cabinets, 3 of them that I just assemebled in the past two weeks. They cover and entire wall in garage.

I think I have sold almost as many models as I currently have as spreadsheet indicates I have sold 108 models.

Barring a delay in delivery, as of tomorrow I'll have 67 in my possession, and three more on the way. All are 1:18, except for one lonesome 1:43.

I have about 55-60, 1:18 and 1:43, all cars. Probably a small majority are 1:43.

I'm planning on adding a few more but my buying rate has slowed down considerably compared to this time last year when I had only been collecting for about 4-5 months.

Right now I have 82 1/18 models in my room. I also have one on the way (will be here Friday) and two more on pre-order. I have about 13 more 1/18 models in the garage, plus a random assortment of other scales in my room and the garage. :cheers

I'm somewhere around 125 1/18s, and 25 or so 1/43s. Not all 1/18s are displayed, only about 80 are in the living room. The rest are in boxes in the closet.

I would like to buy a bigger house with a large basement sometime in the next year or so....

:cheers

Way too many but not enough! :giggle
Currently I have 185 1:18s, 9 1:12s, 1 1:24 and 7 1:43s.
Total: 202

I'll have to think of a special acquisition for my 200th 1:18! :confused
These periodic recountings often give you an excuse for a special buy. :cheers
