Thats a very beautiful collection. That is the kind of collection I want to build up some day but in 1:18 only since I want to maintain the consistency of scale. Im guessing this abroad. Here in India we have a major dust problem. I have a real tough time keeping the dust away. I think I will need another closed display case soon.

Trust me Dippy, Ikea has the perfect cabinet for our cars and its pretty cheap too.

IKEA | Cabinets & sideboards | Display cabinets | DETOLF | Glass-door cabinet

I keep all my cars inside now because I dont want to ruin them with the dust. The Maistos and Bburagos are OK but its the Autoarts that Im really worried about.
