Thanks, AutoWorld indeed does nice job in 1/64.

Added today a Majorette Renault Twingo altough this one seems to be actually 1/54 scale.

Clio feels very Dcast, and the BMW and Aston not what I normally associate with your collection. Nice additions nevertheless. :)

I agree. Like that Aston a lot, though.

Thanks gents! It's true I usually collect ordinary everyday cars but it's easy to make an exception here and there with 1/64 scale as they are so cheap :)

Newest addition, Majorette Mercedes-Benz A-klasse.
Edit: had a problem with Photobucket refusing to upload one of these photos but now it worked.

That's a nice one! You are not the only one having problems with photo bucket. It is the main reason I don't post my finds anymore. It is too much of a hassle. I know photobucket is having issues with their site. Hopefully they get things sorted out soon.

Thanks :) Maybe they managed to sort things out as I was now able to upload the missing photo there. Next job is of course to make a big and little photoshoot about this Merc ;)

That is very nice, will have to search for one 8-)
I'm not addicted to models, an addict admits their problems & I don't have a problem.

Thanks :) Probably a recent release as I don't remember seeing 1/64 MB A-class before, at least this generation. It's got opening trunk but shutlines show up quite a bit :D

New A-class is a huge improvement over the old one. Model looks good for a 1:64.

I agree, now it looks like a proper car and not a squeezed down MPV like the first two generations. A-class got a facelift recently and now I like it even more.
Front end in this model is pretty nicely detailed, the grille and headlights but otherwise it would need a bit more detailing when comparing it to the Schuco 1/43 model and AutoWorld 1/64's :)
The exact scale is not stamped in this model, looks maybe slightly bigger than 1/64, estimating it's more like between 1/50 - 1/60. My other Majorette cars also are usually between these numbers when it's stated in the model.

You're right, Siku and Majorette are generally 1:55 or thereabouts.

We get a sort of an SUV that looks a lot like this. I am sure it would be bigger than the A Class but its basically this car raised up on its suspension.

I like that Golf. The NSX looks good but I'd have preferred smaller wheels.

Thanks, NSX indeed could've used smaller wheels.

Finally found a Hotwheels Gran Turismo car, the Nissan Skyline R32 :)

Here it is with the game:

and with PS3, original PS1 shows in the lower shelf which is also still in working condition:

Couldn't find an excact match to the model from the game, perhaps this one is the closest?
