Good grief! I finally finished a collection after a long battle with a Silverline kit of the Jones Las Vegas 1981 winning Williams. My sausage fingers and the microscopic parts in this kit were not a good combination. So unless Ford return to F1 in the future and at the risk of going over old ground this collection ends here.....

A wonderful collection Paul - and a lot of dedication in putting it together.

I know I should say the Alan Jones car stands out, but I kinda like the Matras and 49s - the BT49 is a bit of a favourite as well.

What a great collection Paul. It's fantastic to see such a tightly focused group of cars.

The Matra's are a favorite, but I've also been a Schumacher fan for a long time and love the subtle variety between his cars as well.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

It's really annoying on two fronts.

1) i read something and realised i had an incorrect model in the collection and a missing one. That's been sorted.
2) i couldn't remember my rationale for why i had decided i didn't need certain models in the collection. I've tried to come up with a good explanation and failed so i need to add another 13, 2 of which will need to be scratch builds, 3 of which will need to be conversions...... that's going to take another 6 months at least....

Good grief....
