The collection includes MINI, Rolls Royce, and some of BMWs more recent aircraft by Gulfstream and Boeing. There are also several BMW powered cars (formula cars, Range Rover, Morgan).

much smaller (about 400) and have had to sell some due to lack of space.

Have run out of space for 1:1 BMW's too! (two 2002's and two e30's, plus parts thereof...).

I'd like to see BMW do some of the classic motorsport cars in 1/12. Any duplicate E-30 M3's you (or anyone else) want to part with?

my bank account is glad they don't. Very expensive, and they seem to make only new convertibles.

I really don't really have many dups, but if I come across any M3s I already have, I'll let you know.

Eric,

How did you hang the models on the wall? Wire? Nails? Hooks?

Thanks

Brad

eimr
08-25-2004, 11:48 AM
I get non-maring hooks and nails made by OOK, at Home Depot. They use a thin nail that can be pushed through drywall like a thumbtack. Most 1:18 suspension pieces are strong enough to attach the hook and nail, then just push the car onto the wall. They only leave a tiny pinhole if you remove the hooks.

I'm primarily a large-scale plastic kit builder, so I pass on most of the items you have. My eyes are getting too bad to do anything under 1/24 scale ... unless somebody wants to make me a great deal on one of those 1/43 Jemmpy E28 M5 kits.

I track them as 'built' or 'unbuilt' in a couple of Lotus spreadsheets. You *do* have a separate insurance rider for them, don't you? Doesn't take a lot of heat to reduce the whole collection to ... well, you know. =8^0--

then go back to it any time your girlfriend/wife gives you a dirty look for stopping in the toy store to see if they have any new diecast bimmers in stock. Just tell her that "one little car can't hurt......its not like I'm this guy"

I believe I have the same 1/8th scale model of the BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile. It's 15 inches long. Also have a framed jigsaw puzzle of the car. I used to own a real CSL-miss it. Trying to remember what brand model that it is?? The hood, trunk and doors open. The steering and suspension work. Some glue has worn out as it's been in storage since 1982 or so and I just stumbled across it. Is that the same model you have?
