thanks petrol.
actually these AutoArt 1:43's are so good that they are really very tempting. very tough to NOT buy them despite their prices!

i think i will invest the time one of these days and photograph each and every one of the AutoArt and other good quality 1:43 classics that I ve managed to collect so far and put them out as a collage together.
it will be nice to see what sort of stable that looks like. i only wish it were possible to own some of these in real life on a 1:1 scale!
all the superb photos that our colleagues put out here are truly insipiring indeed.

Absolutely stunning collection and superb photography too. It looked as if a magazine is shooting a 'Supercar Comparo'. Nice !
