I have always liked the 2000GT in white, not only did I see one at a dealer in that color way back when they were new, I had wallpaper in my childhood bedroom that featured one.

The KPGC110 GT-R you posted (the first one) looks like the Ebbro model, not Kyosho?

It's Ebbro. Copy/paste error I presume. ;)

You are both right - It's Ebbro, as is the other Skyline - I got them both wrong and it was a copy and past error.

Why didn't you buy one back then, Jeff? :) :)

You would be sitting real pretty now... :D :D

My first Ignition models and what a trio!

The gloss black on this Celica doesn't come through on the photo, but its stunning.

Image

The matt green 240z was a (relatively for an Ignition model) cheap buy

Image

And the blue Bluebird just looks very Banzai!

Image

Got stung by UK customs on 1 of the 3 - no rhyme or reason - just unlucky or lucky depending on which way you look at it.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

A One by One Production Liberty Walk Aventador in the increasingly popular baby blue colour. Arrived today from Japan, and again, very happy with this (especially as customs didn't clobber me on the way in to Blighty).

Nice! I saw these One by One models on a site recently (Boost Gear maybe?) but never heard of them before. Just curious if there is a URL or anything on the box.

Probably, but its all in Japanese :)

A quick Google brings up this link though Douglas. Looks like my Tiger Gate Japan LB GTR could be a sub division of One by One.

300ZX is one of my favorites in Japanese sportscars. Got this in Kyosho/Howsakt and Detail Cars Coupe and Convertible.

Only just tripped over this thread.
