That family portrait is excellent and like they say, go big or go home. No favorites though, I like them all the same.

Thanks guys, the MP4-12C GT3 is one of my favourite modern GT3 cars. Definitely hard to pick a favourite between the 3

Here's a quick photo of my small modern Le Mans collection i have on display. Most are from the 2014 race with the Alpine and 458 from the 2013 race. There's a couple of models not on display like the Oak 2013 class winner and the Aston Vantage Art Car (could have done with one more shelf :lol: )

Drool-inducing. Those 1:18s have a lot of presence and fine detail...

Fantastic detail and with a huge wing like that, the car should be riding with the front wheels up in the air. .

My first 1:18 of 2016 arrived yesterday, thought I would share with a few photos

#0 Porsche 935, Interscope. Interscope Racing.
Race: Daytona 1979
Class/Group: IMSA GTX
Grid Position: 8th
Race Position: Winner
Drivers: T Field, D Omgais, H Haywood
Model: TSM

A fantastic model, just a shame the engine in the back of the model is a twin turbo and not the single turbo as fitted in the 1:1.

Wow TSM have done a very very good job on that, shame about the mistake with the turbo but otherwise just stunning.

Cheers,

Another new 1:18 added to my collection. This is the first Topmarques model I've bought, I'd say quality and detail wise this modelis on par with the likes of Spark and the TSM resins.

This particular model is the Topmarques 1:18 Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo that entered the DRM series in 1980, the model depicts the Zolder race car.

#51 Lancia Beta Turbo, Team GS Sport.
Race: Zolder 1980, DRM series Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft (German Racing Championship)
Class/Group: Division II (Div II)
Grid Position: 2nd
Race Position: 2nd
Drivers: Hans Heyer
Model: Topmarques
