A few more and the last pictures are of a 1/8 scale F40 that is costing me $1100.

Wow! Those are amazing! I used to build models when I was younger, but nowhere near the quality of yours!

I collect diecast drag cars and ones that I have built myself over the years. I have probably 20-30 combined models. When I was younger my dad took his race car to car shows and I'd always enter a model I made that year. I guess I was pretty good, I was lucky to win a few awards fol.

The quality of the build is why I quit simply because I do not have the patience.

Back in the '80s I bought and built that Ferrari T3 and then got my first kitten. I came home from work one day and the rest is history, it took a whole week to find all the parts so now I just buy the built models and stash them in the closet until I can get a display case for them. The Renault RE20 F1 is 1/12 scale that I purchased in '85 for $90 and is a discontinued model and hard to find for less than $500 now. It has collected dust for almost 30yrs. I have a friend in Canada who is going to build it for me as he is a profession model builder but $500 for the build is not in my budget at this time.

I have a friend in the UK who gave me one of the brake disc off his Ferrari F40LM that I hope to receive soon.

I used to do planes and Battletech miniatures as a kid, but that was so long ago. I have no pictures.

I use to collect models, but the police said it was "human trafficking" and that I couldn't do that anymore.

I use to build small model cars and also airplanes back in the day. It was honestly an obsession for many years as a teen lol! Prob built a couple hundred in my years...no joke

I def don't have any pics of any of them, but the one sole surviving Nissan 350z is still alive and well ontop of a shelf in my sons room. It's an exact replica of my old Z that was built out of like x3 different models/parts. I'll take a pic when I get home later. It was also the last model I ever built. Kinda HAVE to keep it FOL!

Here's the Z. Only thing that's not exact as mine is the wide body kit...and sexiness of the undercarriage lol! Everything from the style of wheels, interior red gauges, engine compartment, hood, emblems, lights, and brakes look pretty much identical to mine.

All the models I am collecting will eventually go into a display case and I will adorn the walls with a few posters. These next additions will be added soon,
