I love these photos you have. Now I need to get a scale model sponsor in the shops section so you can spend more money on models! These are so cool. How big is your collection?

Well, let's see...
30 1:18 Ferrari's;
100 Other Makes and Models in 1:18 scale;
5 1:43 Ferrari's (not really into this size...yet);
over 300 1:64 Ferrari's;
over 1000 Other Makes and Models in 1:64 scale.

It has actually been shrinking as of late due to my growing interest in 1:18 scale models. At one point in time I had over 9000 1:64 scale models total.

They all look great, but I think I have to take preference to the black 512BB on the trailer. It looks more in place than the others I guess, at least for me it does.

I love the silver ones. Enzo being towed to the race track makes more sense than a spyder or ony of the other cars on the trailer. So why not have a silver Enzo? :)

The silver comes out much better. You can see that. :)

360, do you use air-brush for your paint job? My problem is I hate to do the cleaning after each colour. In the end I have so many models left in the box. Don't know when I'll start doing them again. :oops:

Actually, the way I paint models is very dangerous and not recommended for anyone to try. :evil:

I boil a kettle of water and place a paint spray can in a pan. I then pour the boiling water over the can. I let that sit in the water for about 3-5 minutes depending on the outside temperature. I then use a hot glove to hold the can to spray the paint onto the model.

The boiling water does several things. First, it heats up the paint making it thinner; second it increases the pressure in the can for a more even flow; third the paint flows easier and therefore covers better.

But again, I stress not useing this method unless you are extremely careful as even I had a can sit too long and it exploded. That was pretty cool but the flying jagged metal was kind of scary.

Sweet collection! You seem to like Ford F-150s. Well there better than Dodge. Nice black Enzo. Can you get a silver or titanium Enzo in 1:18 scale?
