      I started collection about 6 months ago as i noticed that model from my childhood started to become obsolete and also started to cost $$$$$

      It took me about 6 months to acquire roughly 50 models.

      They are all made in USSR and Russian except 1 model, Gaz M20 Pobeda in 1:8 scale.

      May i present my collection.


      Photos do not show the entire collection. Half of my collection is in L.A. and half is in Moscow.

      And the 1:8 model which has everything opening up and lights coming on and even a set of keys and tools in 1:8 scale.

      My fiends garage that inspired me (sorry video is in Russian but content delivers)





      And this is what i just bought: Moskvich IZH KOMBI 1987. My collection lead me to this. Almost a unicorn in our days.

      Collection is growing.

      Picked up 2 super rare in this condition USSR huge metal trucks "ZIL". They go above $1000 for such condition but i was able to pay a little fraction of going prices.

      2 more are coming. I will take a photo of all together.

      I am almost done with rare USSR stuff as far as models.

      Received a few more models and decided to take them all out of the boxes and snap photos.

      I have about 30 more overseas.

      Cool stuff man.

      You can get a very detailed top of the line models of those trucks for a reasonable price.
