Hi Cyrus
Thanks for this info.
Is the available E Type in 1:43 or 1:24 or 1:18? I looked on homeshop 18 as well and they have some in 1:18 only.
Because I m particularly looking for a 1:43 model to help along me the way in adding to my little set of classic jaguars. I need to locate an E Type, S Type, SS100, XK 120 etc. Also desperate to find a small 1:43 Bentley Blower and other such classics.

@ Cyrus: I am looking for a Ford GT, Lambo Miura, Evo (a race tuner one will be preferred) and an E-type Jag. I only want 1:24 and less, no 1:18 at all as they'll not fit into my showcase.

The SS100 is available. Signature makes it.

Ohh yes. My Bad. Signature is 1:32. I want to pick a few up myself, but have other cars on my mind as of now.

Thanks.

@ AltoHoncho: The Malibu is a 1-24 scale from Maisto and the Impala is 1-24 scale from Jada toys.I bought them last year while abroad.

@SuperSelect: Nothing to beat your Citroen/Fiat collection. The only Citroens I have are the AutoArt 1/18 scale Citroen Xsara Plain Body(white) and the Citroen Xsara WRC Rally of France Night Race Version(red).

Here's a 1-24 scale 2002 Opel GT

which FIAT did you buy?
I particularly like the 1:43 and max 1:24 scales - am not into 1:18 on account of lack of proper lockable enclosed display space - two cupboards so far and at this rate I will fill the house with cupboards containing scale models and that will be a problem!
Picked up a 1/18 500 Abarth.
Also the Signature Models were quite inviting.

, totally agree with you on the amount of space the 1/18's take up.
Actually planning on getting a cabinet done for my 1/18's.

thank you Cyrus,
Also another question, how would a white GP look with the same side design as the 500 Abarth?

Just a thought
