I'd suffer the extra dusting because it just looks sooo good.

For Woodys? Not perfect just because it's open to dust.
Luc, I have a cunning plan......... I am going to use large clear acrylic boxes on each shelf!

Ooooooh, clever. Kind of like a presentation display on each shelf? That would look fantastic.

The very same.

The Franklin Mint display shelves seem to be commonly available here. I've thought about buying a used one, but shipping gets expensive.

No Matrix, please don't!
Must get this version though. Elegant and surprisingly subtle from Saoutchik.

Piggy! Just because you'll have paid a King's ransome for the Ilario no one else can have one! :lol: :roll: :P

Lovely shape, the white soft top takes some getting used to though.

Surely it would be Harrods, or at least Waitrose :D

A bit too stately British for me, by an impressive model for sure.

Being a 'cheapskate' I'm waiting for the Burago version...... Not bad though. I really like the 1:1. Just hope it can shake off the 'California' baggage. Good add David.

Hey David, nice to see my Daimler has found a good home!
Nice Portofino but looks too similar to the F12 so I won't be bothering.

Will, I had to give this a vigorous polish to bring it up to speed. Mucky pup! :lol:
Got any more?

Sorry about that, it's been languishing in a cupboard for about 20 years!
I only have one Western left now (I think), the Saoutchik Hispano. My love of Saoutchik means I'll probably hold onto it. Hell, I might even take it out for a polish. :o

We can start a new saying here, a cupboard find! I am into Saoutchik as well.
