Ordered a corsa too, should be arriving in the next 10-15 days. below are few photos of my 1:18 Toyota Corolla.

That is a 1:12 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish by Kyosho.It's James Bond's car from 'Die Another Day'.Complete with guns,missiles and sliding roof.All it fails to do is turn invisible which in a way is a good thing!:-P

Because that great looking Aston Martin make other looks tiny...

1:18 is the best size or universal size of diecast ....300 is great ..

Congratts again for your amazing collection.....

@PetrolInMyVeins - Fantastic Collection, looking at the pic i too thought the size was 1:24 and not 1:18 thanks to the DB. You may have pterol in your veins but from the looks of the collection you also have "diescast" in your heart.

@PetrolInMyVeins and @Diecast can keep this thread running with only photos for many many days to come. You guys are awesome.

@PetrolInMyVeins what are the dimensions of the display area ? It must be a hell of a job keeping all those babies sparkling.
