My model car collection...some photos

Post by Dragonkarr » Fri 27 Jul 2012, 21:48

Well, since you asked so nicely... :lol:
Decided to post some pics under their own topic, just makes life easier for me :roll:

The first three photos show my shelves as they are now - stocked up like shop shelves, so basically you can only see the third (?) of the models that are in front of the rest...yes, I really need to rearrange the poor things so all of them can again see the light :roll:

These photos don't show the stack of boxes filled with mainly my Hotwheels - I haven't got the space to display them properly yet, and it breaks my heart to leave them all cramped up in those dark boxes!

Shutting up now. Here come the pics...

:lol: Thank you all! I may have a slight obsession... :oops:

I have heard something about the HW club before, maybe I'll join :mrgreen:

I don't think I've got any Capri's, but the possibility exists that there'll be one among the Hotwheels in those boxes :lol:

While I'm at it, anyone know where I can get my hands on a model 1972 Elkie? Any scale. They seem to be an urban legend 8)

(I'll try to take some better pics today, those up there are HORRID!)

Thank you!

Not nearly everything! Although that was the basic original strategy :lol:
I try to concentrate on oddities and (of course) muscle cars/classics...oh and bikes. If you go through them all, a very large percentage end up being Chevys. Can't help myself :oops: :lol:
