My FBI 1/18th scale is still on it's way. Expected to be here today but is still being held by customs. Thursday would be there service standard which it will not make since its 3 days from customs to my door. If it's not released by tomorrow I will be pissed since that means ANOTHER weekend will go by without it. D:

So, all your cars are 1/18 scale, is that so? :D I do collect 1/18 preferently, but only two cars I have from that scale are a red Aston Martin Vanquish and a Hot Wheels Ferrari F355 Berlinetta.

----------------------------------------------------------------

As from my side, I have made a COMPLETELY scratch built bulk freighter, some 5 months ago, with stack markings from Upper Lakes Group, (Canada).

It features custom propellers, rudders, complete self-unloading boom and hatches.

No, including this FBI model it will make only five 1/18th scale models. '69 Camaro, Hummer H2, Ford Shelby GT, RCMP Crown Vic, and then the FBI Crown Vic.

Most of my models are 1/24th scale.

EDIT: Oh my car was released this morning. Will probably not make it Friday.

Well, I have mostly 1/64(?) Hot wheels cars, I think they already reached 40 units!

1/24 cars I have are a Bburago Porsche 959, a Guiloy Mercedes C111, a Maisto Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible, another Maisto Dodge Viper GT2 and a (unknown builder) Ford GT90 (!!):

The rear door of the Porsche 959 is broken, unfortunately, 'cuz of a kid playing with it. Same reason why the Viper GT2 lost it's spoiler! :lol: I once went for vacations on Switzerland and left it there, along with the rest, with the hope that no one would touch my cars...

Aircraft are vehicles, right? :lol: I recently purchased a 1:200 scale model of an Airbus A380, although I'm not going to assemble it until I return home later this month. In the meantime, here it is in pieces:

That's my computer in the background for scale.

Somewhat late (it came by the Swiss Post), here's the Jeep Willys MB, with markings of the French Army. It includes the Bantam trailer on.

Now Atlas Éditions has sent me a poster for the next number, the GMC CCKW 353. It also comes with a watch (with compass, wow!), a toolbox and a workbook to continue the collection (something I won't do... I'll keep the Willys & the GMC truck, that's enough.).

All these models are 1/43 scale, FYI.

Really LOVED this truck, & my stepfather will also enjoy the watch and the toolbox (as he was in need of what is on that toolbox!... :( )!!

RETURN OF THE THREAD!

I've been looking at buying AUTOart (Yeah, mad expensive, but they look so awesome) 1:18 car models and I dug around the internet...but it's hard to find places that sell them in the Greater Toronto Area. Any ideas?

(Online's also acceptable, as long as it gives me a cheaper price :P )

Well, it's a kit to assemble, what I'm looking for.

I like to assemble models myself.

-----------------------------------

I will also buy this kit, if it is interesting to anyone here...

I just had my Auldey 1/16 Honda Civic Type R!

sam_0989.jpg

Some of the stickers were applied by me, as well as custom license plates were also added, as you can see below:

2013-01-19_13.23.19.jpg

So much time I was battling to get one, but few are the places in Europe where this Auldey is available!...

It has high intensity headlights and tail lights, soft tires and suspension (beam axle at the rear and MacPhersons at the front) that's good for improved stability.

The two slight drawbacks is a speed considerably lower (9km/h in normal speed, 11km/h using boost) than Nikko's 1/10 RC's (13 to 15km/h in normal speed, 18 to 20km/h using boost) and it's unability to be driven in too much dusty and/or moist surfaces.

Nevertheless, it is a very fun to drive RC, and with very good details, it can also be added as a collectible. :)

Personally, I wanted this, because it's one of two favorite cars, and I wanted to avoid the Ebbro one, which pretty much smaller (1/43) and here, it costs the double of what I paid for this Auldey with it's shipping and money transaction expenses together!

Among my latest.

Because I have a hardcore liking to Lamborghini, the latest cars have been Lamborghini in fact.

One of them - the 1/43 Centennario - is actually the culprit of a big and frantic search to acquire it on that specific scale, all because Bburago first released it as an exclusive for the latest Forza Horizon game preorders.

Now, after a one-year-long wait, Bburago had just released it into the market, though with different rims...

1/24 Maisto Custom Huracan

To start with, the most cars of same make are the Lamborghini, totaling already 39 (including two repeats) and one which could have been included and make 40, if it wasn't for this Astro Racers papercraft anti-gravity ship (LamboGiaro as written on it; Lambo II according to it's designer) resembling a black Countach.

Now I am targeting the REAL No. 40, a superb 1/10 RC Huracan Super Trofeo by Nikko; one I already 'met face to face'.

Make way for Nikko's most acclaimed 1/10 Street Cars Series. the Lamborghini HURACAN Super Trofeo!! ^^

Strongest point: it's actually faster than the announced 10-12kmph, and is very light for the size.

Lowest points: has no working lights whatsoever, and some parts look a bit fragile.

Price tag: $114.76 in today's currency (converted from CHF114.-).

Right now, I am customizing it to become an Itasha like the「EMT」Super Aventador.

I may also try to find out how to install working lights, even including directional/warning lights. and a RGB LED band circuit for the underside.

Hope you liked it. ^^

Almighty monster performance Huracan Super Trofeo which is about to reemerge as the "Sena Kashiwazaki" Huracan Mega Trofeo, with a twin turbocharged, 1250hp V10 delivering raw power to the rears, neck-breaking power managed by only four technological performance marvels, three of them don't even exist IRL and would forever change the Elite performance car industry!

IMG_20180711_181933.thumb.jpg.af099ad613fdf1c90e3c038e487e9caf.jpg

One is the familiar ESP, while the others are the VAYCS (Variable Active Yaw Control System), Fusion Transmission (all-in-one transmission, if you'd like) and an inboard intelligent system simply called "Instinct" (detects road and weather conditions, and analyzes the driver's behavior in real time, and adjusts the suspension, rev limiter, fuel injection rates, etc based on those circumstances for maximum control and performance).

Theoretically, a car this powerful and advanced could kill the 0-62 in just below two seconds, into a max speed in excess of 250mph; constant adjustments carried out by the "Instinct" could beat the Nurburgring Nordschleife in about five minutes, perhaps less.

Rear quarter.
