Hi there!

Post by StevieSX »

I'm Steve from Ipswich in the UK. Started collecting towards the back end of last year and currently sitting between 400 and 450 cars from all walks. I have everything from a few older Solido models to a few Ignition models I was able to track down at a good price :) I have also updated the small collection of Burago toys I had as a child to make them fit a little better with my collection which is good fun - added a few pictures.

I collect almost exclusively in 1/43 and all are race cars. These are from various eras and forms. I will post a video in the collections thread (a few months out of date now as I need to get round to taking a new video).

Even through collecting on FB Marketplace and eBay, I've spoken to a lot of good people who collect so looking forward to seeing what people on here have! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Thanks Tom - can't see your whole collection as a lot of the pictures don't seem to load now but I definitely plan to grab the IMSA Audi GTO and the 924 Carrera GT that you have at some point in the future - very nice. I see your thread is very popular!

It's just the one thread for my collection and it's been going for years... all long-time threads here are like that. And yes, we have a problem with picture hosters here. I'm working on getting my pictures back up but it takes a lot of time.

Welcome.

I do quite a bit of modding, conversions and custom builds as well (see the links).

I like the video.

Thanks everyone. Alex - like what you did with the Burago F40 - is that also a 1/43?

It is. Just a flight of fancy I put together with decals from my stash.

Welcome Steve. Impressive start to your collecting. Seems there is no better place to source a big collection with all the Dealer's you have there.

Welcome to the forum Steve

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.

Welcome Steve.
I would say that the collecting bug certainly bit you very hard. Those are some excellent buys in your collection.

Finished modifying the old Bburago Viper. It's surely got a BGW but I'm fairly happy with it.
