Thanks guys, Tom yeah as I said this is my very first 1:12 and probably will not be last so long as the next ones price is right :lol:

The detail on it is very impressive right down to the folding front seats and towing eye rings in the correct places and even has a working rear boot/trunk handle to open it :mrgreen: and the bonnet/hood even has a stand too 8-)

Great looking 1:12 Mini! ;)

I own three 1:12 models, and love them dearly! 8-)

Great adds Alistair, lovely Sport Classic 997. SLS looks good in red in roadster form. And the Mini is not so mini!

Very nice models and especially the 1/12 Mini :) I too would like to add at least one car in 1/12 in my collection some day, just to decide which one and save the money for it as they're usually not cheap.

When I think of 1:12, 2 cars come to mind. First is all the Motormax 1:12 Ford GT's that they were selling in the closeout section at Walmart for $30 that I passed on and the other is a FM 1:12 Cobra that I bought for peanuts and after selling it got a 5 fold increase on my money.

BTW, your Mini is smashing.

I have two, a Premium Classixx Porsche 911 which is basically no more than a large 1:18 with not a lot of detail and a SunStar Morris Minor which is amazing, down to the complete tool roll in canvas and roll-down windows.

My 1st arrival for 2014 is this beauty :mrgreen:

Mark Webbers 2013 Show car limited edition of 504 pcs by Minichamps
Image

I am a HUGE fan of Mark Webbers and was really sad to hear that he was leaving F1 at the end of the 2013 season so once this appeared I snapped it up for my collection. I cant wait to see how he now gets on Racing for Porsche at LeMans this year.
Webber and Porsche = awesome in my book :lol:

I love these 18 scale F1 cars, only get the ones that I really like the look of.

Here is todays arrival which has been wanted for my collection for an extremely long time and now finally have one and I am extremely happy with it (apart from a slightly cooked rear badge :roll: )

I know there will be certain members who will love this and maybe an equal amount who wont, One I can be certain of who will be top of the latter list :lol:

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Ha ;)

Very nice piece Alistair. The current crop of DTM cars are as good-looking as any, and the model does this one justice.
