      I just checked True Scale's page and no Porsche 936

      I have all the HPI lemans winners and the quality is just amazing It has all the details of a 1:18 scale. I have their Mazda 787B, the two Porsche 965, the Sauber-Mercedes C9, Jaguar XJR-9 and the Porsche 911 GT1. The quality on the HPIs are so amazing that their Mazda, Sauber and the Jaguar replaced the IXO versions I previously purchased.

      BTW, did you get the Silk Cut decals for your Jags? If not, let Mark at Replicarz know that you need 'em. I got the Jaguar when it came out a few years ago and I asked Mark if the Silk Cut decals existed. He said yes, got in touch with the importer and mailed me a set.

      It was the same story with the Porsche 911 GT1. For some reason, only Minichamps got the rights to reproduce the official scrutineering decals from the ACO. So, when I got my 911 GT1 from Replicarz, I asked Mark once again and he hooked me up

      mx5er,

      Thanks for the tip about the decals, I did not get them with mine. I also got a HPI Newman 956 with the Jags and was so impressed that I also ordered a HPI Kenwood 956 to go along with my 1/18 Minichamps, a Sauber C9, and a Nissan P35!

      Hopefully my new display cases come in this week, I am running out of space to display and the wife is pressuring me to do something!

      I also had no idea that this forum existed on VWVortex!

      Yeah, my garage looks like a hobby store! I have roughly 50 kits that need to be completed. I have two on the go right now, so it's a start! I'm trying to cut back on the purchasing, so we'll see how that goes!

      Here is a pic of my recent additions to my collection. I really hadn't added anything to my collection in quite some time and by chance found out about a diecast store here in St. Louis called Designs In Motion. Unbeknownst to me, they have been in operation for 15 years! This gave me the itch again and kind of went on a binge! Granted alot of this was on sale but some I just had to have and have a couple of more pieces coming tomorrow!

      Thanks for looking!

      You all have some incredible finds, and skills for the models I'd assume. For me, very amateur so my found while grocery shopping finds are awesome for me. Here's some that turned up while doing some cleaning.

      The green "chrome" wheels on the car to the left, not sure why that was chosen as the wheels don't match the colour of the car.


      The Johnny Lightning (love that baby blue) Typhoon seems to be less accurate then the 4Runner. I have a blue 4Runner somewhere as well. I had to get one with the white wheels as I remember that was an option on the real ones regardless of body colour. Wanted the 4Runner ever since someone on Autoholics posted one.


      A few modern vehicles, any of which I'd like. All of which are the wrong colour.



      Delorean era Pontaic with a Delorean in gold. I have Delorean "liked" on Facebook so whenever there's a new edition of the Delorean from Hot Wheels I know to look for them. I have a silver one, a black one, and finally a gold one. The gold one being a tribute to the very rare American Express Christmas catalog gold plated Delorean.

      I work in retail, so I'm usually one of the first to hit our store. I feel bad for anyone looking for Deloreans. I have like 6 Time machines, a ton of the regular one, two or three faster than ever's and then 6 a piece of the gold and black ones.

      I have a bit of a DMC problem.

      Wow, I did not even know there was a BTTF DMC. I'm very jealous, I can't imagine the hardcores are going to leave any around for me, maybe I'll get lucky some time.

      I might have an extra. I will dig through my stash.

      The ghostbusters car was pretty cool. I am still looking for the A Team van.

      Managed to get the last one on the shelves (at least this week) and a BMW M3 GT2. It's kind of funny that if you go to WalMart on Saturday morning, there's always a bunch of us grown assed men in the Hot Wheel section, just cutting up and BSing while the wives go grocery shopping.
      Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.

      Dumb question about these Easter cars - where are they located? I've checked the end caps in the Easter and the regular Hot Wheels sections - no luck.
