Thanks again,none of the latest 1/12 models were cheap but the uniqueness and rarity of these meant i couldn't refuse a first chance of buying them before they were open to others,he let me have first refusal on all of his models.This is the first lot off him and i have another five - but four are unique 1/12 models reserved with him until i pay for them in a few months time so i will show them when i collect from him.I see it as a once in a lifetime opportunity to cherry pick from such a collection and there are some real one offs to come.Just two more to show from the first lot,next one is tomorrow. :okay:

A company who sells memorabilia made a short film about this Guy who has this collection from where i bought the models from.He decided to see all the models,most are Amalgam 1/8 models but they are too much for me to buy.He has around 50 models left from around 400 of the worlds finest Beasts.
Enjoy the link.

The next model needs no introduction in the model world as i am sure most have seen a version of this over the years.It's the Lucy Belle or to give the full name The MG Model Plus 1/12 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa (TR57).Again this is a hand made model and looks Fantastic as a display piece,just 100 were made and this is #42.The Engine hood doesn't quite fit but looks fine with me and also it didn't have any Ferrari badges on it so i put them on this Beauty,all looking very nice now.Again i have not seen another made up one of these so really pleased with it.As with the model above it comes with a base and case in the factory box.

Thanks again,hope you like this one too.
This next one is the last of the six 1/12 i picked up off the friend last Saturday so this is it for a few weeks.And what a Beauty this is,i just love the look of this,one of Ferrari's finest lookers,if it was Female it would win Miss World LOL. It's the MG Model Plus 1/12 1959 Ferrari Scuderia 250 Testa Rossa(TR59).Again it is a limited model run of 25 and this is #2 hand made by the Factory,it must be a later addition as it is better made than the previous models with more Photo Etch to it and all the better for that.I am sure a lot of you Guys know about these 250 models but this was so eye catching in the Sun when i took photos it really popped just sat there,i am really impressed with this Gorgeous Beauty,see what you guys think and thank you for the comment and views.

incredible collection! yes a shame he decided to sell them off as there are many many gems that would have been very difficult to let go of. I know the feeling having sold off my former collection and some of the special models I had..

Hope his health improved though!

Here is the Peako 1/12 Pagani Huayra BC and what a Beauty it is,comes as usual with the legendary top quality you find on the Peako 1/12 models,i love them.This is my fifth Peako 1/12 Pagani model now and every one has given me the Wow factor,they really are the pinnacle of Resin 1/12 models.I must admit i went a little over board on the photos,sorry in advance,the upside is plenty to see so i hope you enjoy this Dream Machine as much as i did taking the photos and seeing it up close.

Very nice! We have some common ground, I have this one in 1:18. Wheel gap seems little large on the front, no?
