Another fantastically dedicated and comprehensive collection. Between a few members here, this forum must be as good an authority on touring car models as you could hope to find.

:o WOW! What a GREAT collection! I was pretty stunned to see the Mustang in there, I would have never thought of that car being campaigned in the BTCC. Just had a lot of fun flipping through your collection, I know I will be back for many more looks!

Wow - some fantastic one-offs in that collection, and lots of models I recognise from the [imo] better days of BTCC.

Neat - I dont think Steve (Trooper) has seen this yet ;)

Good that you have taken the time to name the photos so the mouse-rollover identifies them

Nice collection. I was not brave enough to attempt to complete the Vitesse BTCC line up.

RML Primeras are my favourite here. The yellow / red Shell Sapphier Cosworth looks good. Never seen that before.

Thanks for your kind words on my collection, only one of my friends shows any interest as he collects Le Mans cars. The rest including my wife and kids think I shouldn't be collecting 'toys'!

I always find the collection is never completed! I always said that I would finish when I bought all the manufactuered models, then when i had finished making the kits that were produced (still going on them!). Now it's turned into a little bit of an obsession and I want to make/convert everything that I possibly can, so only a few hundred to go then :lol:

There are a couple of models I really want, unfortunately they are in PDS's collection and not mine! ;)

Thanks
Chris

Deeply impressive Chris. Love the Audis especially, but would be glad to have any of them

It's a great collection and you have some I would like. What base model did you use for Matt Neal's Honda Integra? That is a car I would love to be made. I've thought a lot about trying to make my own version but as I'm OCD with it I would be really annoyed if I couldn't get it perfect.

I'm not sure to be honest as I didn't make this one, I bought it off a friend who bought it off ebay. It's in an Ebbro box and I know they make this car so it's probably one of those.

Yes Chris. It's a converted Ebbro model. One was actually bought on e-bay by Matt Neal himself! Around £110 if I remember correctly?

The decal sheets for both years do pop up occassionally on e-bay.

BTW, hold back doing a conversion yet.. I hear that a BTCC Honda Interga may be available to buy soon..

Watch this space..

Tell me more, I'd pay proper retail for one of those Integra's. You've got me excited now :P

Slightly OT but...in this month's Motor Sport magazine, very interesting article on Alan Gow and how BTCC / SuperTouring previous and current eras came to be etc...

As I suspected, he confirms the 1997-98 Bathurst SuperTouring events were the highlight of both eras for him...not least cos it wound up the V8 Supercars community ;-)

Finally had a chance to look at your entire collection.
I like how it tells the story from way back.
My faves were the Galaxie's and the Imps and the more modern Volvo's.

What a great collection 1958 to now. Most of the memorable ones are there. Just a shame that there is a huge gap in the market covering the years 2000 to 2004 even if they were to a new BTC Spec. :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

I have finally finished another conversion and bought 2 new models (not the finished article though as they don't have the sponsor details on)

1993 Ian Khan - Vauxhall Cavalier (1st Livery at Silverstone)

1975 Tony Dron - Alfa Romeo 1600GT Junior

1974 John Lyon - Alfa Romeo 2000GTV

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28372122@N ... otostream/

I was hoping to have another kit finished soon but seem to have lost the bag with the wheels, headlights and wing mirrors in :oops: Hopefully I'll find it soon

Funny the bits of info we pick up. Tony Dron's name is instantly recognisable to me, yet I've never heard of Peter.
