This was my first 1:18
I have some 1:64's going back to the 60's and some 1:24's going back to the late 80's but since we are mainly 1:18 here I will go with this one...

Edit: Forgot to add the details: UT 1:18 Ford Escort RS Cosworth T3/04B

You bring up a great point!
I always "collected" from the time I was very young.
By collecting I mean that I always wanted more cars for my birthday and Christmas.
When I was a grown man I would still hit the toy department and buy if I liked something.
I am not quite sure when I made the jump to "Model buying maniac" :confused
it just sort of happened and before I knew it I had way to many cars and not enough money for all the new ones I wanted :giggle

well, I have no pictures, as I am here @ school....and all the models are about 200miles away.....:blahblah

anyways, my first model was a '57 T-bird.....it was, and still is one of the fav's :cool

the first one I bought......a '55 Chevy pickup. I remember dropping $50 on it and thinking it was such a big deal!

I stick solely with the 1/18's.

But it didn't start my collecting habit! That followed after I got this Maisto McLaren from my girlfriend (now wife!) for Xmas 1996!:

I had some BBuragos before but I don't remember which was the first one. It was only toys for me on these days...I remember crashing my BBurago F40 Evoluzione on my Maisto Jag XJ220... Damn, I really was a bad boy !!
