      For me, the sweet spot in scale auto collecting is 1:43. Small enough to be able to display several without looking like a hoarder, big enough that you can still get some great detail and life-like proportions.

      I thought a thread like this might be nice. Post up collection shots if you have them, and individual shots of what you added to your collection recently. Only stipulation is that it's 1/43. Can be kits, or manufactured. If you quote someone else, please omit their photos.

      I'll post collections shots later, but to get it started here's a recent addition. A Porsche 934 plain body in white by Spark. The Japan version.

      This arrived in the mail yesterday:



      I've been collecting 1:43 scale 24 Hour Lemans winners. So far I have 1982 to 2018.

      Just a small sample of my collection:

      Very cool!

      Here's a couple shots of a few of my collection. I have almost entirely Porsche stuff, but a few Audi have slipped in.
