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 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.

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.
