This car is most definitely one of my "Holy Grails" to borrow Gary's term. Here are some quick shots of it. One day, I hope to take a 1:18 UT McLaren F1 GTR #9 car and modify it to a #43.

This car finished #3 overall that year at the hands of Peter Kox (NL)/Roberto Ravaglia (I)/Eric Hélary (F).

After looking at your pics , I see I still have a long way to go with mine . I love the way the cars reflection shows up on that front n/s corner shot :cheers

Congratulations Felix. That is indeed a very nice model. A modified 1:18 #9 would be really cool to see (and maybe even attempt!)!

Great shots, of course. :coolpics :nicejob :nicejob :nicejob

:lol :lol Now why does that statement not surprising me coming from you Gary?? I appreciate your kind words about the pictures. I think I'm going to find a different background and do a little experimenting so I'm not always using the same reflective background all the time. I recently saw some photos of diecasts on reflective white (beige?) and it looked very good.

That's so funny. You like my pics that much but they really kind of bug me being fuzzy the way they are. :giggle :giggle What can I say? If they bring contentment to you, then I'm happy with that. If they torture your soul, well, I'll have to defer the credit/blame to Minichamps as they were the manufacturer. :giggle :giggle I am really humbled by your compliments Anders. I just see myself as some collector who enjoys photographing diecasts and that's about it. As for the description "Master"?? I dunno....I've been called Grasshopper and c*ckroach before. :lol :lol

Thanks John. Since Autoart was the one who opened up my mnid to buying sealed models, all of a sudden, the little 1:43 cars popped up on my radar. Ironically, I haven't bought a single 1:43 AUTOart model. :giggle

Maybe you'll buy another McLaren after you collect all the Ferrari Le Mans cars?? :giggle

No confession from me buddy because I can't confess to something that's not true. :lol :lol There are a number of 1:18 race cars I still very much want for my collection. Trouble is, 3/4 of them are no longer in production. :ranting That means it's going to cost me more. I'll have to check my cars to see how many 1:43s I got this year. So far, I only bought 3 1:18s this year.

Felix you have mastered the art of miniature photography. You can make a good car look better and a better car look out of this world.
Never really been a fan of the long tail Macs, but picture # 2 blew my mind off. Fantastic stuff these little 1:43s. :nicejob
