If I genuinly rustle through EVERY box in my house I'm guaranteed to come accross over 500 models over the years at least. I used to have a box full of them, and I sure as hell haven't got rid of those. Besides, anyone remember Micro-Machines? I must have hundreds of them alone!!

Looking back on it I feel like a nut for asking parents to spend sooo much money on the damn things

Today I picked up my new Laser Blue/White R56 S and my new Clubman S in Lightning Blue/Silver from the dealer in Solna, just outside central Stockholm. Both carried bonnet stripes and fits nicely into my collection.
Oh, they are in 1:43, unfortunately

My new Countryman arrives from Austria in a few days, apparently it "is at sea" today, so i should get it in a week or so, i also purchased a 1/18 countryman model a few weeks ago in the same colour as mine, only difference is the stripes on the bonnet are missing on the model and the dark surround on the lights are also not there.

As for models i have been collecting since 1985, 27 years, i currently have over 2500 models, mostly packaged in large boxes in the loft, bust i also have a few on display, i will collect what i like, but any Rovers will be purchased...

I've just started collecting recently. I collect mainly 1:18 scale McLaren Formula 1 race cars, but this is my most recent addition which I just had to buy due to its rarity and also because its almost identical to what i drive. Enjoy

Hey

I got this model off eBay.co.uk, there is still a red jcw model available on Buy It Now off the same seller. Search for Kyosho JCW and it should come up.
