Do second-hand purchases count? I
Yes! Be patient, likely these classics from BBR will go into production again.
So far only F430 Scuderia Coupe, Spider and Enzo have been announced. I really wanted base F430 with starfish wheels :lol:

Welcome! An excellent purchase :okay: I own one in Alpine White and I love it so much that I could stare at it for hours. I'd love to buy it in dark blue and Melbourne Red as well. Only if I had bigger net worth :doh:

As somebody already said, Yes. The only other one that I know of is Motormax and that is just no.

My retail therapy is still ongoing. Next up is McLaren 600LT by LCD Models. I'm not a huge fan of modern cars but my retail therapy could not be stopped so I decided to just go for it. This is also my first model by LCD Models and it is a perfection all around. Easily blows the competition out of water.

That looks REALLY good. I am not a massive supercar/hypercar fan myself though. I prefer it when companies take their regular cars and turn them into something crazy, hence my above Kyosho purchase. Plus I am kind of a BMW fanboy :woot:

Yes, LCD Model did a great job on the above no doubt. It's not perfect, though the interior side is delicious for lack of a better word.

I'm more inclined to buy more BMWs from Kyosho's golden era as I recently began to appreciate Bangle's designs (I used to find them abominable). I wish they had made M5 Touring though :cry:

Compared to what they are doing now, bangle's design is quite good.

True. Even those who don't like Bangle's works in the slightest seem to think today's monstrosities don't even compare to any previous models :lol: 7 Series with two-tone paint is the worst offender in my opinion.

I bought Gallardo Polizia because it has the best color/wheel combo in my opinion. Need For Speed Hot Pursuit nostalgia somewhat factored in as well.

I'm absolutely in love with additional details exclusive to this variant 😍

Sadly it's developing paint rashes on its rear fenders 😢

At last, I have completed my “Porsche 911 RS” 1/18 scale collection with the addition of a 964 Carrera RS America from GT Spirit. I set out about a decade ago to collect each Porsche 911 which has the “RS” designation and fortunately each real car has now been made in scale model form to date, not including a few super obscure cars and of course the newest car.

I will try to take a picture of all of them soon. There are currently 20 RS models, not including the RSR racing variants, only the road cars.

HOWEVER! The typical poor quality of GTS models strikes again. Most issues I can live with, but this time the front window is too large and it is warped quite badly. I am not sure what to do, try to fix it and risk damaging it further or just sell it as is and get another? I don't feel like contacting the company will result in much. :wall:

Lovely addition. Sorry to hear about the front windshield, that sucks! What is the Model# on this piece?
