Of course I also had the 906 in 1:18. An absolute must buy for me in 1:43.

Ask a Porsche enthusiast about the 996, you'll get this look, as if you're in the middle of a Mopar meet, and you just went up to some Dodge-loving, Barracuda-driving, Hemi-obsessed redneck and asked what he thinks about the PT Cruiser.

You really like your 996es, eh? :lol: Nice model, though the livery looks a little DIY.

It sure is , but believe it or not , this was quite a hard one to find 10 years ago when I got it.

One of the models that I sold very reluctantly. Seeing this, perhaps I shouldn't have. Superb.

There is something very gratifying about holding a nicely detailed and heavy 1:18 in your hand and examining it closely. Like this one a lot.

Some nice stuff there Gary. When a model like the 1983 "Andretti" 956 is available in both 1:43 and 1:18, how do you choose which scale to buy (or do you just get them both) ?

That's easy: both. And all the other 911 the seller has.
