My humble collection started in 1992. I have made a few of them (1/24 and 1/16 scale GTO) from Tamiya Kits and other japanese brands. Painted them, some with close to 3 to 6 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear coat.

I like doing this spend hours doing the assembly detailing, painting including the amber & red in the ( have all the relavant paint from tamiya stocked up tail lights & indicators and did the chrome prancing horse on the back of the GTO with a single strand brush. I have a Miata, 500 SL AMG, which are in my garage getting reconditioned and a rally Peugot 205, Porsche 997 GT3 still in the box. Yes you also see the obvious diecaste models. Will post the complete collection on the next post enjoy
