Hi everyone! According to my profile I've been a member here for about 6 years, but I completely forgot about it and never posted anything before. Only when I was googling and came across the forums did I remember when my browser auto-filled my password for me lol. I recognise quite a few people from diecastsociety.com and I'm looking forward to contributing here and getting my diecast fix :).

My collection has changed so much and I wanted to start afresh after selling over 200 of my 1:18 models in the last few years. My collection is primarily made up of hypercars and I'm a huge Veyron fan (I had at one point almost all the AUTOart variants/colours released so far), plus I also like a few cool concept cars and the higher end supercars that have made an impact or are really unique in the automotive world. I did also like collecting multiple colours of each model, but decided to sell the multiples recently to free up some cash flow for future purchases. I also recently sold the few 1:12 models I had as they just aren't a priority for me.

Sadly I still don't have enough space to display my models and appreciate them to their fullest, but hopefully that will change soonish. My insurer has asked me to catalogue my collection, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to get them out of their boxes for some pics.

Here is a breakdown of my collection so far - please click on the hyperlink to see pics of that model.....

Thanks for the really warm welcome (back)!!
. I didn't realise I had so many replies - I need to sort out my notification settings
.
The wife is out tomorrow night for a few hours, so will hopefully be taking some individual pics and group shots.
In the meantime, I found these pics I took a while back of the 4 showcar Veyrons. I've got the original white outer boxes for all of them as well, as that seems to have a positive effect on the value of them. Enjoy these first set of pics!!!!

Trying my hand at some model photography now. Let me know what you guys think/any suggestions. I'm finding it difficult to photograph the interiors up close in good detail. I've got a micro 4/3 camera with interchangeable lenses and I've been using it in aperture priority mode and manual adjusting the focus, but can't seem to get too close with the 3 lenses I've got :shame:

1:12 GT Spirit Porsche 918 Spyder - Martini livery



Are my pics showing up as too big? Should I use smaller ones?

P.S. I've now sold this model and all my 1:12s

Thnx!! They look perfect on my phone, but on my PC they look quite large, so wanted to check.
I was about to get the grey one when I saw this one and it was actually a decent amount cheaper at the time.
I've just bought a 1:12 Premium ClassiXXs Merc SLS AMG coupe in black - I took advantage of the 20% off (up to a maximum discount of £50) on eBay UK today plus I had some money in my Topcashback account doing nothing :)
