A 1/43ed scale sporty car and oldie car cabinet.

Post by stewil » Sun Sep 26, 2010 4:15 pm

This cabinet contains favorites and is loosely organized from newest cars near the top and oldies at the bottom.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
PS. I goofed a couple of times by showing the same shelf twice. Sorry about the redundancy.

Top left section to the bottom compartments. The cabinet is designed to hold 1/24th scale models.

I built the 2002 F1 Ferrari to go with the 1952/3 Ferrari 500 which was reputed to be the most dominate F1 race car ever - until
Schumacher's F2002 came along. Enzo Anselmo Il Commendatore Ferrari standing among his "children".

Henry Ford front and center. Tazio Nuvolari and a young racer named Enzo Ferrari in the shelf above him.

I like the "Corvette Corner" especially the AA dark blue/silver with external headers. Actually what really got my attention was the 43rd figures. Who are the made by? Image

Too many to list, lets just say I can see more than 10 cars I would love to add. Way more than 10 ;)

Frank, I am surprised you don't have a Mako Shark yet.

Steve always stunning.
I bet you don't have other forum member's problems sneaking boxes in undetected by the camp commandant.
Lynne's at school 4 days a wewk and works from home on a Wednesday, so I have a 4 out of 6 chance.
Guess what? Boxes usually turn up on Weds. and Sats. !
Cheers,
David

Sandy gets home after me but if I have a big or a multiple box shipment, you can bet your bottom dollar that she will be off that day. :shock:
Oh well, its like they say, "Its better to ask for forgiveness that to ask for permission"

Not a problem here. I just have the "contraband" sent to the restaurant address. She doesn't know .... until she gets the bill in the mail. This way she only gets mad at me once a month. Image

Super stuff again Steve. Something for everyone there, and plenty for me! I like a large majority of the Ferrari shelves, along with the big Bentleys. Also very drawn to the little white Alfa, and surprisingly to the Porsche shelf with the 904. Saw that model a long while ago, and talked myself out of it once :roll: :lol:

Who makes the red and yellow Ferrari 360 #70?

That Packard looks quite unique! It's nice to see it next to that Continental. ;)
