That's a lot of motors!

Might I be the first to suggest a bit of shelvin' tho :)

Well........ the thing is, they are all in my attic and all the wood is not supported by much, so to put up a shelf would be very hard + the extra weight of the cars would not help so all in the have to remain on the floor for now.

Nice collection there Peter. I still have all mine in box's since the house was renovated three years ago. I really should get them set up again. My collection though is mainly the German touring car Capri's, along with various other Capri stuff ie: Corgi Detail cars.

Get some pics up Al, would love to see them all.
I do have all the boxes for all the models ( I have over 170 at the last count ) but I am fast running out of room up there now. Shame really, I love this scale of model.

Nice collection there mate, I thought I had a few but nothing like your collection (not by a long shot) most of the cars I have are either 1:24 scale plastic model kits (that I have constructed myself) or match-box ones, although I have got a 1:18th scale Ferrari 288GTO and an RS200 (not sure if thats 1:18th think its smaller) got nearly all of the Shell Ferrari cars too still in their packaging.
Here are a couple of pics of the models

Chichester - Well....close enough!
I have about 20 and I gave them all to my step son with strict instructions not to play with them and to only have them on a shelf for display......yeah...thats lasted about a month.
Picked up my fave (McLaren F1) and the door fell off......of course he knew nothing about it.....or the missing wiper and wing mirror from the Ford Cougar......or the bent wiper arms on the 911 or the Diablo......etc etc

They are now on his shelf under 2" of dust and if I dare ask him to dust them, all I get is a true strop Kevin and Perry style :cautious:

Yeah I found it in a box, my older brother had made a right hash of building it a long time ago.
Funny thing is i've been selling most of my collection on eBay of late, Match-box cars, some in their original packaging. Found a web-site were they value them, depending on age and condition

Nice collection Peter, sold all mine some time ago, does mean I can start again though (y)(y)

Cheers for that. The main problem is the size of them and keeping them all + boxes. My collection is in my attic but I have nearly run out of space now up there and my wife hates them lol !!!
