The F40 is stunning,man.If you leave out the insanely expensive BBR Ferraris,Kyosho is an impossible act to beat.The detailing and finish on this thing can give my standard F40 from Hotwheels a run for its money.About the pictures,I'm really sorry guys but my exams are approaching so they'll have to wait but I promise an absolute onslaught of detailed images of my entire collection once they're done in May.I'll try to make sure its worth the wait!Oh and BuBoo,I just checked out your collection.Real neat.You come across as a man with a taste for the best.And this is the first time I've seen the Bburago F40.It may not be a match for the Kyosho but it definitely looks like its got a nicer stance than the Hotwheels version.

It's always special, to find a scale model of a car that has been part of one's daily life at some point in time, especially if that point is around a decade or two back, moreso, if the memories of that time are very sweet.

My eyes did not even take a second to get glued to what would be an immediate procurement. This was lying stacked amongst three stacked rows of 7 cars each, but the eyes knew which one it has seen many times of over, observed in detail as countless childhood sketch books.

Yes presenting the Peugeot 504!!

Though this is the sedan and we lived with the Estate, we still had adequate exposure to the sedan. Completely nostalgic.

Makes it two in a row, of such additions to my stable, after the W124, but in the memories department, the 504 would simply be all over the Merc.

W123 though, would be another story!!

In that era Fenders were clean but very stylish. Simply love this..but my 1100D has a similar fender, though not so sleek.

Whats a French car without some Quirckiness somewhere!! These Gauls are after all Crazy!

Paul Smith - Corgi/Hornby Toys 1"57 MINI COOPER 1959.
Lovely part about it is the finish quality and the inimitable Paul Smith Signature Striped pattern on the bodywork. Quintessentially Brit-Quirky.
Love it.
Expensive but worth it for Paul Smith!

ive actually picked up a few little scale models from Paul Smith over the last few years - includes a London Cab, London Bus, A larger Corgi Mini Cooper with the Brit Flag and of course this one. Thinking of one or two others - the Beatles limited edition Taxi and Mini Cooper Clubman and Bus etc.
Each costs between 1100-1800 bucks or equivalent so they are expensive.
