@Cyrus: Thanks Cyrus! Being the beginning of the month so I usually go and splurge on the scale models. The car in the thermocol is the E46 M3 GTR in green by Minichamps.

@Blackadder: I think the friend is delighted at the W12 and cant wait to get it in his hands And one would think thats the treatment I would get from my hobby shop guys, but I live in Dubai and there are some crazy collectors here who make me look like a one time buyer. But oh well life goes on. Haha but jokes aside they're very good to me and give me good deals and a higher discount than most customers.

@RPMPKDMFF:Thanks a lot dude I get my cars from King of Hobbies. I dont have many vettes. This C1, an AA C6 ZO6, BBurago C5, Maisto C6 as well. I want the C2 and C3 too I think. Im gonna wait on the American muscle for a while. Need to finish the Germans first. Wish you luck with your collecting as well.

Beem3r, now you got to invest on a good camera too. I have to strain my eyes to check out all those goodies. How about a group shot of the M3, CS and GTR together. The E46 is my favorite BMW. Do you have a CSL too? I guess you do.

@RPMPKDMFF: They've moved to Deira to their old location somewhere behind the old Dubai Cinemas. Think theres a United Hypermarket. Right behind its parking lot.

@blackadder: Haha funny you should say that, I have a lovely Canon EOS 20D DSLR with a variety of lenses but when I end up clicking pics on that it takes forever to load it on to the comp and then onto imageshack. So been clicking pics on my E90 but recently thats been giving me trouble so this time clicked with my 8800. I wanna put all the E46s together and take some pics. I love the E46 M3s too. Yup have an AutoArt E46 CSL as well. Ive posted pics of it a while ago. Ok Im gonna stop I really sound like Im gloating. Sorry guys.

Very nice Beemer! What is the total tally of your scale models?

Thanks F50 I counted till about 83 last year this time then stopped. Since then must have added another 60-70 scale models. Now they're all over the place. But I want to document all of them so as to keep track.

Post Inventory Software

@BEEM3R, you can probably maintain an Excel workbook, I have one to keep an inventory of my scale models, and it isn't even 1/5th of your collection. If you want I could mail you the format, or you could just think of the details you want to record.

Another option, since you have a larger collection, is to use a prebuilt inventory software, I just found one named KollectAll V8. Am trying the trial for now, let me see how it go and if I like it, might pick it up. It is available for purchase at KollectAll V8!

Hope this helps. Happy collecting

Haha thanks RPMPKDMFF, now theres something you didnt know you needed. But on a serious note, I think it might make sense cause now Im seeing a tendency where some cars I want in more than one color. Like the two enzos. And I have an Interlagos Blue E60 M5 now they've announced a white. So Im getting tempted. But strictly I think it should atleast have a different trim or be a variation. Like the Kyosho 7 series is now available as the 745i, new facelifted 760Li, 760Li Individual and the Hydrogen 7. So I guess I want those now. Thanks for the support RPMPKDMFF.

Ok guys I had some work in Deira today and I went by the Model Car Shop. I brought home 7 more cars of which 6 are very very high end. My first CMC. My third BBR. And my first Schucos and two very important models from last year. And a darling little roadster which Ive always wanted to own in real life. Im at work now, so will post some pics when I get home. Because I buy them in bunches its hard to shoot detail pics. But I guarantee you, once the display cabinets are all up I'll try and post a car a week in detail and really enrich this thread.

Its behind United Hyper Market In Deira. Basically coming down Al Maktoum Bridge when you hit the Clock Tower, keep heading straight. Think after the second signal you'll see United Hypermarket on the right. And take the first right after it and head to their parking lot at the back. You'll see a tiny King Of Hobbies store. Thats the best directions I can give cause Im still new in Dubai and am bad with landmarks.

Hey BEEM3R better get the pictures of the CMC model up fast. Which one is it, can't wait to see it. Have always been fascinated by the craftmanship, but don't have enough spare dough yet, so not sure when I will get it... but do plan to pick up at least one. Will let you all know when I do.

Wow, thats many. How do you maintain them? Do you clean them monthly or quarterly?
