I have 15 +/- 1:18 scale Ferrari's and just want to show off a couple of them...

If you like my cars, let me know and I'll post more pics :D

Very cool location to shoot them, nicely done
are those Bburago and Mattel? i'm not too fond of them.
so you only collect 1/18, do you have some Exoto's then?

They are Mattel as they have the exclusive contract as of right now.
Mostly I collect 1:64 scale since they store a lot easier, but lately I have been getting more into 1:18 for the detail. Most of the ones I have right now are Mattel, but I do have Maisto, Bburago, Ertl, and 1 AutoArt. Exoto will be added as money allows. I absolutely love the detail on those.
In total I have almost 2000 1:64 scale cars, and about 60 1:18 scale cars.
I am selling almost all of my 1:64 to pay for the 1:18 though. They get expensive quick!

Thanks for the compliment on the location choice! It is actually my driveway looking down the hill.

Personally i preffer 1/43
better quality and detail (especially with mattel) and also more too choose from.
but this also comes at a price
like you mentioned compare it with the exoto's, very pricy

1/64 that's a pretty unusual scale

i do have a F40 in 1/87 from Herpa that is used with the model trains

Hey Dirk,

1/64 you (probably) used to play with when you was a little boy! I did with the likes of Matchbox, Majorette and Hotwheels. In the US it is a very common scale to collect, but in Europe 1/43 is most popular.

PS: Indeed a nice photo location. When do we see your real Ferrari standing there ?? :green:

Very nice photos Spyder.

I like 1/18s. I have about 30 and I only collect Ferraris and in red. I have 1/43 as well, have about 50 but have stopped collecting them. I love the large scale models the 1/12 and 1/8. I have a few F40s models that are yet to be assembled. Lazy me.

nice pics man. How many cars do you have in your collection?
Well, I have actually added more since this thread was started. :D
I now have 25 1:18 scale Ferraris and 75 total 1:18 scale cars/trucks.

I also have over 500 1:64 scale Ferraris. Many of them have been custom painted by friends so those are special to me. I'll post some pics of some of those later today.

But, back to my 1:18's, they can be viewed here...

Hope you enjoy! And, feel free to order prints of any of them if you like...I did and they look even better than on your monitor. But I'm bias since I took the pics. :lol: :wink:
