    I love my Revell and Tamiya model kits... I have a whole shelf in my room dedicated to them, plus a couple of others.

    [​IMG]

    In there you might spot:
    -Audi R10 TDI [Revell]
    -Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Convertible [Collectible model]
    -Ferrari Testarossa (at least I think it's a Testarossa...?) [Diecast]
    -Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger [Came with a magazine]
    -Enzo Ferrari [Tamiya]
    -Lancia Stratos WRC 1977 [Revell]
    -Ferrari 458 [Diecast]
    -BMW Sauber F1.06 [Revell]
    -Subaru Impreza WRC [Plastic model kit, can't remember the brand]
    And buried under that paper...
    -Ferrari 248 F1 [Lego]

    You might also see little objects resembling a Mini Cooper and Jaguar E-Type. These were attempts by a younger me at carving cars out of balsa wood. The less said about them, the better...

    I'm excited I found this thread. I'll have to make you guys a list of all of mine, and maybe a few pictures of my glass cases. All 1:18's, generally all Autoart. Have the new Aston Martin LMP1 car (my profile picture car) on pre-order from Autoart. That was a nice $280 (Canadian) Christmas present from the GF after I bought her a nice tablet. I'm very excited and patiently waiting for that notice from Autoart saying they are shipping. In the mean time here's a little list from what I specifically remember:

    AutoArt 1:18:
    CADILLAC CTS-V SCCA WORLD CHALLENGE GT 2004 WINNER SEBRING ANGELALLI
    PORSCHE 911(997) GT3 PROMO CUP CAR 2008 <--- (bought from the Porsche Museum, which is a big deal when your from Canada and have only been to Germany once)
    ASTON MARTIN DBR9 SEBRING 2005 #57 BRABHAM / ORTELLI / TURNER

    Hot Wheels 1:18:
    Fernando Alonso Renault F1 (either R25 or R26, I'll have to check)

    Norev 1:18:
    Renault Megane Trophy 2009 #21 M. Verschuur
    2010 Peugeot 908 HDI FAP #2

    Kyosho 1:18:
    Mercedes Benz CLK DTM AMG in white

    Maisto Premiere 1:18:
    Mercedes Benz 300 SLR Targa Florio 1955

    Action Racing 1:18:
    2004 Chevrolet Crawford DP03 Daytona Prototype #2 (Orange-Blue)
    2004 Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype #9 (Orange-Pink)

    Anson Racing 1:18:
    Porsche GT2 ROHR #01

    Maisto 1:18:
    Audi R8
    Porsche Carrera GT
    Porsche Carrera
    Mercedes Benz SLS AMG




    I probably have more, and I have a bunch of planes too but this list is already too long. I'll get some pictures in a few days to show you guys. I have alot of time and money invested into my collection right now. They look awesome in their glass cases too. Like I said, I'll get some pictures up.

    Oh, man - where do I start? Since I was a little boy I have collected models, mostly the Matchbox and Majorette in 1:68. I think I must have somewhere between 200 and 300 of those now :D And as I have grown older and started to earn money myself I have increased the cars in the larger scales. After a quick count around in my room right now I find 44 models in 1:18, 28 models in 1:43, 7 models in 1:32, 3 models in 1:24 and 13 smaller models in different scales... And the collection is growing every few weeks :D

    edit: Oh, and I forgot the rest of my 1:24 models that I have had to pack away into boxes because I have no more room for my models... Man, I could have become a millionaire just by selling my collection :p

    I finally got my Christmas present today!!! Brand new AutoArt Aston Martin Lola (I'm sure you already know what it is)

    [​IMG]

    Here's my pair of cases, you can guess what's what. Everything is 1:18.

    [​IMG]

    Here's my other case with planes as well (again, obvious). The Mig at the bottom is a Franklin Mint 1:48, everything else 1:72 Hobbymaster. I can't remember who made the Sukoi though. Oh, and there's a little space shuttle I got at the Air and Space museum in Washington, D.C.

    [​IMG]

    There's a Maisto Porsche Carrera and Mercedes Benz SLS-AMG on the bottom shelf.
