My name is Julio and I'm from Mexico. I've been collecting models since I was a child (back in the 1960s). I collect mostly 1:43 scale models, many of them (about 200) used to be my toy cars (a long, long time ago).
This is me (back in the 60s) surrounded by models (I wish I'd kept the ones seen in this photo)...
...and today I'm still surrounded by models! My collection has grown and diversified over the years, so in this thread you'll find a bit of everything, from old Matchbox, Corgi and DinkyToys to newer models in several scales (1:87, 1:36, 1:32, 1:24, 1:18, 1:12, etc.), even a couple of motorcycles and a few airplanes and trains too. Most of them are diecast, but I also have some white-metal models and a couple of plastic models too.All the model's information will look like this:Marque
(number of models of that marque in my collection)*Model's description (Model Manufacturer) scale
-notes-This is the way I'll sort my models in this thread:
2.-Year of production of the real car
5.-Scale (from smallest to largest)***The description will usually be the same used in the model's base or box.
**The scale in some models may not be 100% accurate. It's hard to know the exact scale of old Corgis and Matchbox models.
I'll keep adding photos to the alphabetical area since I keep buying new models...
As of today I have 1668
So, lets get started!!!
