I just picked up a 1:18 Kyosho Ferrari 512 BBi and a Autoart Porsche 993.

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Porsche 930 Blackbird re-badg

In my opinion, I only bought this model because it was a really sharp looking Porsche 930 so for me it needed the badge, it looked naked with out it.

Fortunately, the badge is just a gel sticker and easily removable.

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Countach Restoration Project)

Re-badged. I didn't really care that this is from the Wangan Midnight series, I just think it a awesome looking Porsche so for me it needs a Porsche badge on the hood. In fact, I never even heard of the Wangan Midnight before the Porsche was released. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2835/33737406752_b...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Koenig-Specials Countach)

Thanks. Yes, these are all 1:18th scale. Aquariums are awesome. I've had had a saltwater 30g FOWLR tank running for 11 years. I didn't find having a saltwater tank anymore difficult to run over a freshwater tank but it was a lot more expensive to setup initially. If your doing fish only it's very ea...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Koenig-Specials Countach)

Looks very nice. I ordered it today, probably arriving Saturday. How is the color in real? GT Spirit did a great job with the Candy Apple Red but this color wouldn't be my first choice on the Countach. The color is hard to capture in photos, I'm just waiting for a sunny day for another photo shoot....

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Koenig-Specials Countach)

I'm referring more about the quality of the model rather than the subject matter. GT Spirit did a beautiful job modeling the car even though the Koenig is way to red just the the real car. There doesn't seem to be too many images available of this version Koenig Countach. http://www.lambocars.com/im...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Another Ferrari 488)

Just arrived! This is an absolutely beautiful rendition of the Koenig-Specials Countach by GT Spirit although many may not care for this version of the Countach with it's color matched wheels and NACA ducts. While I would have been more excited if they had modeled the white version of the car I am s...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Another Ferrari 488)

Personally, out of the 11 Hot Wheels Elite Ferraris that I own the nicest and most reasonably priced has to be the Ferrari 348 TS even though it is my favorite Ferrari. My Ferrari 458 GT2 would be second.

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458

This just arrived. I believe that this is my first white Ferrari. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2818/33441268045_5d10224f71_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2941/33313236361_ee52388fce_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3712/32627279263_59e47567d2_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/585/32598315...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458

Thanks Kwando! I don't know what it is about the Hot Wheels Elite Spider but it never look right to me. I think it looked like it sits too high. Here is the Speciale with the Spider wheels. For some reason I think the Spider wheel look better on the Speciale. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2871/33295...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (New Garage Photoshoot)

I never liked the oversized wheels on Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458 Spider so I decided to use the wheels from my Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458 Speciale. It wasn't an overly difficult job to do. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2809/33264006712_28112196a7_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2892/33379361...

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (New Garage Photoshoot)

Thanks! The floor is just spray painted 1/4" MDF, but yes, it did come out nice. :)

Re: Eric's Diecast Collection (New Garage Photoshoot)

I still have a bit of work to do on the walls and I think that I need to put down a clear coat over the floor. The paint on the floor is still slightly tacky. But here are a few more shot of some of my Ferraris in for service. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/680/32360219283_eb851ddaa4_b.jpg https://c1...
