Hello again!

Yea they are IKEA Billy, with corner shelf and height extension. I got 7 shelves all together but i try to limit my main collection to just 3 shelves :p

i actually wanted a lighter colour Urraco but I got this one at bargain price. I don't mind the blue but the dark blue does conceal some of the details unless you look at it under bright light.

that is one brilliant looking Urraco Rally you got there. I like Lamborghinis in outrageous colour schemes. :)

My newest haul from trip down to city today. I don't usually pay attention to aussie v8 scene but these deals are too good to pass up.

All are in 1/43 scale both Falcons are made by Biante, $15 each. And the Monaro concept is from AutoArt for $20. Bought 2 Monaros, one for myself another as my mate's surprise birthday pressie. he will probably go nut over it as he always wanted a Monaro himself. Couldnt get an actual for him or the scaled production version but this is probably close enough.

couple of high res up close shot of the Monaro for anyone who is interested

received this last week from the mail

The badly modeled Bburago Countach and Miura always bother me so I decided to do something about them over the weekend.

Shaved the rear window louvers so it doesnt have the silly curved shape anymore. Painted rims gold to give it a bronze look. No more chrome bling rims! :)

Got the inspiration for Countach from nicadraus' blog. Added black surround for headlamps and painted side windows black. The Countach I have is the re-released version with ugly chrome rims. Was going to paint it matte grey to try to match the real one but at the end decided to try gold instead. Too bad I couldn't do anything with the out of shape body. :(

Hey great collection you have there, very well displayed. Ferraris and Lamborghinis are also of major interest to me. I see you are a Perth resident, I occasionally travel to your part of Australia and love visitng the Pitstop Bookshop. Check out some of my shots of Ferraris and Lamborghinis in California recently:

grinberg: Yea the euro spec one with lower front spoiler looks quite good on 308. I remember reading somewhere that you were going to blow 100 bucks on a model for your birthday. Have you decided on which car to buy?

simondc07: thanks for the compliment. I am running out of display space quick.
But i am leaning towards 1/43 scale lately so that will buy me some time before having to extend my collection to the next shelf.
I checked out the photos you took during the car week. the one that caught my eyes are the classics from 60s and 70s.

Have you decided on which car to buy?
Yes, I went for the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV -80 1:18 in red by Autoart, the Alfetta is a car that I always wanted since I was a teenager when seeing it at the car dealer... Car is on the way and my birthday is on sunday. :) I mainly collect 1:43, but I thought I'd buy some cars that I REALLY want in 1:18. Ferrari 308/328 is on that list, BB512, Mondial 3.2... Lambo Urraco... Alfa Montreal... well the list is too long actually... lol

Great Ferraris, 308 is stunnig, i have a soft spot for non red Ferraris
Thanks Kenz. I usually go for red Ferraris but will gladly settle for yellow on certain models. The root of 308 can be traced back to the older Dino and I always thought Dino looks great in yellow. Hence the decision on a yellow 308. Besides it appears that the yellow one is cheaper than the red Kyosho 308.

Been a while since i last posted here. In the past few months I acquired the following:

Kyosho Ferrari 365 GTB4
Autoart Lamborghini Espada
Revell Mercedes W123
Sunstar Mercedes W210
Hot Wheels Foundation Ferrari Superamerica 410
Kyosho Mercedes E211 Estate
Chrono Ferrari 512BB
Maisto Porsche 997
Welly Nissan 350Z

A quick update on my collection

My wife surprised me with a belated xmas pressie...

I always wanted a 50s Caddy with pointy fin tailight but the Maisto version I could find locally is way overpriced and just not good enough. This one might do for me for now. :)

A friendly reminder to anyone who wish to add this to their collection but have limited shelf or display space, this thing is huge! I couldn't even fit it into a 40cm wide billy bookcase so at the end i had clear another deck in the adjacent bookshelf to put it in.

see a comparison between the humongous caddy next to the 350z.

Also just picked up an AutoArt Corvette C6 convertible for only $30 bucks in town today. I think I read somewhere that AUTOart was dumping some of their corvettes dirt cheap a while back due to oversupply not sure if that is case. If so that might explains the pricetag. There was one left when I left the store.

Stumbled across this very old Countach book in the 2nd hand bookshop next to the hobby shop. This book will compliment the AUTOart Countach 5000s and Ricko Countach 25th anniv I am currently waiting in the mail well.
