Yep thats my Ferrari collection. Of course now the F430 Coupe, 612 Scaglietti and the 599 GTB have been added to what you see.

About my favourites it has to be the 1:18 Knight Rider KITT which comes with a lot of features including the working front red scanner.

Another one is the 1:18 Jordan 191 F1 the car in which Michael Schumacher drove his career's first F1 Grand Prix.

No dude not yet reached the magical mark of 100. I have around 70 1:18 cars. I'm adding to my collection slowly as I dont buy from shops here anymore. Everything you get is so common. I get my cars from the US off Ebay. That way I get all rare models which are not available here.

Hey Dippy, do you buy the models off the eBay Stores or from private bids?

@Cyrus:

My cousin in the States who has an Ebay account buys the cars for me and sends them over when someone is coming. If you go through the Ebay shipping thingy, turns out to be very expensive sometimes it costs more than what you buy the car for.
