Just wanted to do a quick poll to see which brand most of us started out collecting with.

I know I started out collecting like most with a budet model, which just so happened to be a Maisto model.

My dad got me started with Bburago after he got back from Italy and bought me a 1:18 Testarossa (I detroyed it :crying ) and 1:24 288 GTO that I didn't really get to tough till I was 14 (11 years later), and that's where it all took off...

I got a Bburrago for my 21st birthday off a friend back in 1992, and my wife kick started my current collecting habit by getting me a Maisto McLaren F1 in 1996, but the first model I went out and bought for myself (soon after my wife bought me the McLaren for Xmas '96) was the Maisto Ferrari F50 spider. I wasn't conciously collecting budget brands only, but they were the first one's I can across.

My first Exoto, for instance, was the 1964 LeMans GT class winning Daytona coupe which I bought some time in 1997 while I was in London (from St.Martin's models on St.Martin's Lane). Now however I do tend to go for the non-budget choice where possible.

My first was the Revel BMW 507 and Isetta that I purchased when working for BMW back in 1997. From there it was mainly budget models until I discovered manufacturers like AUTOart, Kyosho etc. :cheers
