Easily the best colour for the Focus.

Nice. I had two bog standard Corsas, a 1.2 and a 1.4. This should be quick.

As a GM-Opel-Vauhall fan, I welcome new models and I can see from the pictures that Corsa is a stunner and would be very welcome in my House.

I like the Nova although I never had one as I started with the MKII Cavalier SRI.

The Corsa model is nicely done.

I had a 1:1 Nova SR but always lusted after the GSi.

Nice Beemer. I'd like the spoiler to be a bit wider though :D

Simon is that M4 GTS a Paragon version? if so looks like one of their better efforts. Nice add.

Alastair - it's actually a Minichamps. Some reviews of it have been pretty poor, but I was very pleasantly surprised when it arrived as I think it's a really decent model......and FAR better than any Paragon DE BMW I have.

Some lovely additions Simon .
Sierra Cossy is a firm favourite but the Singer 911 is a close second. Not a fan of any BMW but the wheels on the M4 GTS are stunning .
I would normally have added the Focus RS by now but am planning of selling all my 1/18 Fords so I didn't get it , as nice as it is. Still needing to add that brute of a Mercedes , only in 1/43.
