Looks like Bburago has come a LONG way from what I was used to :shock:.

What a treat to see your haul Simon! This is almost like looking at a forum circa. 2003 :lol: Everything looks in great shape too! You always have such appealing 1:18s and your resin purchases in recent months have emptied my wallet a few times! BB

Not my usual thing, but my sister-in-law bought me this 1:10 scale Yamaha for my birthday as it has a connection with my 1:1 Abarth Yamaha Factory Racing

The Camargue has always been one of those :why did they bother" cars to me. I have always sen it as awkward looking and when new, horribly priced.
I have to say though, your model of it is the first time I have seen anything attractive about it. Maybe it the color but it really looks good.

RS looks very cool in white. Otto seem to be keeping their quality standards up at the top as we've come to expect.

Another white Ford, this one by GT Spirit (and already shown by Andy).

Very pleased to finally add an original Ford GT40 to my collection.

Sure this one will divide opinion.

Though in fairness it looks a lot better in the hand. Schnitzer BMW ACL2 by GT Spirit.

It does look brutal. Nice model too, not so sure about the green though.

You're right Simon, it's got the street presence of an Aveling Barford Road Roller and similar colours..... :lol:

The green would be ok if the wheels were better matched. Red doesn't cut it for a brutal green car like that.

I am pretty sure I would not like the person who chose these colors/look for a 1:1 :lol:
