Thank you for the comments, you have interesting models too.

Witth a few exceptions and I will notice them as in the case of the models Sólido i have posted ,  alll my models are 1/43 and IXO based collections that you can buy at magazine stores.

Most of them was on sale at Portugal, but I have a lot  from Spain and a few from France. I know someone who goes to Spain every week,  bringing back scale models and slotcars to a few enthusiasts. I also buy models at autojumbles but is a rare situation.

 

I have a price limit around 10.00euros per model, not written in stone as this Bitter CC from Minichamps acquired second hand from a Fiat enthusiast, for the double of that limit, but...

The Bitter CD is one of my all time favorite cars. In my point of view is rare, very well designed with a fabolous GT look, with german build quality and american V8 power, what else!!

 

Two recent  acquisitions, a Peugeot 205 GTI from the portuguese Altaya collection "RALLIE DE MONTE CARLO"...

 

And a Mercedes Pagoda from RBA. spanish collection "Unforgetable cars". 

Both collections are based on IXO moulds and probably build in china ( as my Mac computer...). I did not buy the entire collection, but only the models in witch I have  interest.

 

Keeping with Renault, another rear engined sucess, the R8, here from the same collection of the Pagoda and the first from a few versions I have.

In the back you can see Peugeots, the brand I was shotting  to post in the portuguese classics web forum, when I buy the R8.

Photographing the models is a way to keep the models  catalogued and share them with other enthusiasts.

To be continued...

A DeAgostini taxis series and a GE Fabbri Ferrari series was sold on a weekly basis here in Greece, but the taxis series was suddenly discontinued without any notification. The taxis series, which I see that you are apparently collecting as well, included many very interesting classics. This 1966 HINO RENAULT PA 62 Tokio Taxi was the last sold here before the series was discontinued:

When you see these wonder small cars and think about the big cars that we all talk about frequently it seems like the goodness of the old world has returned. I love these small cars especially the likes of VW and others its like wow.

...more Renaults, now with two sport rear engined RWD 8's.

This one is a model from a very special car, the R8 Gordini, driven by Carpinteiro Albino to overall victory in the first portuguese international rally, the 1967 Rallye Internacional TAP", five times winner of the best world rally of the year. In this first year, 53 cars at the start and just 11 survivors crossing the finish line.

Only a few other portuguese win this rallye.

 

And another 8 Gordini from the "XI Tour de Corse"...

 

Now more "civilian" rear engined RWD models, with the R10 an updated R8 version that fill the gap until release the new front engined FWD R12....

to be continued...
