Hi there!

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 I will post a video in the collections thread (a few months out of date now as I need to get round to taking a new video).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 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.
