Thumbs up

Very nice, Alex. I haven't gotten into 1/43 scale stuff yet. I don't see much where I shop.

BTW, anyone care to put up a pic of a 1/43 car next to a "matchbox" size car. (1/59 or 1/60, IIRC) I'm not even sure I know how big those are, but your keyboard is a decent reference.

I haven't even heard of 1/32 scale before.

Just as long as he doesn't smell like gasoline.

Matchbox indeed! Are we modellers or kids!!! (Don't answer that!!!)

I can put one up to a 1/24 scale, is that good enough?

I can even do two of a kind!

The Lancer on the right is 1/24 scale, the Lancer on the left is a Provence Moulage 1/43rd Resin model.

While I was there I photographed a few more 1/43rds...

A favourite of mine, the Lancia Fulvia.
This was the first classic kit I had ever done in this scale, and I love the fact it has so many little features like the spot lights and the tow hooks etc.
It has a detailed interior too with roll cage, switches, radios etc...

And one of the ultimates in 1/43rd scale, a Le Mans Miniatures Peugeot 905.
This was bought built and was very expensive! Beautiful kit though, and so much detail!
It has helmet telecom leads, full chassis and engine detail, seat belts, removable panels, carbon fibre decalling, etc.etc...

Hey Alex, seems like you got the hole Shell Ferrari collection. I got a few cars from a promotion Shell did on my country, but my kid got thru them in a few months, I only could save the 500 F2, wich is over my monitor right now.
There was a nice F50, I think 1/24th or 1/18th. I got it, but you know the story, the kid played with it and...

BTW,Did you saw Schumi driving one of those cars few weeks ago? Not exactly the 500, I think it was the previous year car (1951). But it was almost the same.

No, I did not get the whole collection, but they still have some cars that they give when you accumulate anough points on the Shell card. I talked my girlfriend into getting the card

Yes, I have seen Michael ...
