  • Ah yes. I also would not let anyone touch my collection! Especially sub-humans (read: children) Really like the Jaguar XJR9 test car!

  • Please do a video on the Peugeot 905. It would be even cooler if you could somehow get the designer of the car, to explain why he made the choices they did when designing the car. And perhaps even get them to snitch on the current LMH program car ;)

  • R.I.P. Exoto. Wish they were still around making new models. All they do is sell the models they already made 10+ years ago.

  • Exoto started in California with a manufacturing base in China and later on when the cost of manufacturing increased in China they moved to the United Arab Emirates. They constructed their own factory line. The move to UAE proved to be a fatal mistake as the cost didn't go down and eventually they priced themselves out against the tough competition from CMC. CMC coming in with a manufacturing base in China and releasing the Ferrari 156 F1 Sharkenose was a big blow for Exoto. The company exists but they don't manufacturer models anymore. I think they loan/rent their excellent molds to other model manufacturers. Exoto is a victim of its owner ego who insisted on pricing his models at prices that put them outside the reach of the majority of model collectors. That bread of collectors who are willing to buy close to US$ 700 doesn't exist anymore. By the way, CMC is on the same path with its latest releases, for example, the 600 Pullman, a nice and highly detailed model but would pay above Euro 750 or you can get a model for the same car at US$ 300 from AutoArt. The majority of collectors will go with the AutoArt model because all these features in the model won't be used or used frequently because they are bron to break with use.

  • Very nice collection and it deserves a very nice display. You might want to consider a "Barrister's Bookcase." They are generally made as modular stacking boxes with a glass front that is hinged at the top. No offense meant to your friend's collection, but anybody can have glass shelves that look like they came from some cheap furniture store. Your collection deserves a place of pride worthy of its importance and value. Google barristers bookcase and you will see what I mean. They not only look great, but are also built to last through many of your family's generations. I have a set from my grandfather that still look like the day they were made. The video I would like to see? One of each, of course.

  • Do NOT glue that wing in place on the Exoto XJR-9. I've had the 1988 race winner from Exoto, and I believe the rear bodywork cannot be removed when the wing is in place. Also, you cannot pack it when moving or selling it since you cannot remove it anymore, at least not without damaging it.

I also do have some japanese racecars like the 1997 Subaru Impreza WRC, 1973 Mazda Savanna RX3 and Nissan Skyline R32 Bathurst racer. A porsche 911 GT1 and a Carrera GT. Some little 1:43 Audi Quattro's as well. Might buy a 1:18 Audi 200 Quattro Trans Am in the near future.

If only this global Pandemic didn't happen..... I want to have all of it in Hot Wheels in 1/64 scale toy, specially the AMG Mercedes Benz CLR, The McLaren F1 GTR Long Tail, The 1998 Audi R8 GTP LM Hard Top, NIssan R390 GT1 and the Toyota GT-One. unfortunately none of a toy makers make the AMG Mercedes Benz CLR replica so.. Hot Wheels, Tomica or Mini GT pls make one for me? Also I want to have a 1/64 scale NIssan GT-R LM NIsmo LMP1 too.

  • I had 30+ 1:18 models placed in my display cabinet and one day while I was cleaning the models the shelf supports gave way and my complete collection came tumbling down out of the cabinet in front of my eyes. Half of the models had minor damage but the resin models especially were completely destroyed. One of the worst days in recent memory so I totally understand your behavior when handling your most precious models.

  • As an 1/43 collector, when you pulled out the hpi triple set, i got goosebumps. I’d give my left one for the Sauber-Mercedes set, but the Porsche or Jaguar sets are just as awesome. That exoto xjr-9 is just breathtaking, btw. Also, while getting a xjr in 1/43 might be easier than 1/18, actually sourcing one with the silk cut decals took me months of patient eBay watching (thank you, seller from France!) Currently, I’m only one TWR XJ-S etcc car away from finishing my racing jaguar collection and as much as I spend on models, the technology and stories they all represent never fail to bring joy to my life.
