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.

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

Guys,

No one to answer :( , any ways I cannot resist posting the pictures. Here I go. the first in the series is the D11R Track Type Tractor, which eventually was the first product designed by the founders of Caterpillar. The first Track Type Tractor with track came out in 1904. This is the biggest TTT from the Caterpillar range. Hope you all enjoy the model in 1:50 scale by Norscot
