i know this isn't rc realted, but htere is no where else to put it. i was just wondering if any of you guys were into die cast model collecting, 1/18, 1/12, 1/24, whatever, if you are, what do you have. i'll start off, i like 1/18. i have a ferrari 360 spider, ferrari enzo, ferrari 550 barchetta, mclaren f1, lamborghini diablo, fast and the furious dodge charger, jaguar xj220, audi tt, 1961 corvette, 1971 chevelle, porsche 911 targa, and an aston martin db7 vintage, all are 1/18 scale. those are all mine, hopefully more to come. also post some pics if you can. so go ahead and tell me what you guys have.

i have a decent amount of 1:18 scale cars.. most of it was when i worked for BMW... its not so much the BMW cars, but majority of the cars came in boxes/ stands that the public cannot buy.... only avail. to employees... :)
