    I used to build models all the time.

    I do have one I'd like to sell though. It's a Bob Tindle Orange Crate model. Original, not a remake.

    I just collect them already assembled now.

    I think it is.

    I only have 35 of the 50 1:18 scale MM cars on display. I have another 75 or so of them in 1:64 scale.

    I also have dozens and dozens of other diecast cars/trucks as well.

    Aww see when i build a model car i have to build it in one day. this may sound dumb of me but i have never thought of doing it over a couple of day period, guess im too afraid of my mom getting to the pieces scatter all over the table and throwin them out lol. but i do rule at the level 1 cars taht are just snap on

    They don't make these cars anymore. I bought the pearl white Anglia on the top shelf for $20 or less, and I saw one sell for $100.00 plus shipping on ebay.

    I only need one more car to have every car of the set. I need the '62 Corvette. There are a couple on ebay but people want way to much money for them.

    Sorry they were so dusty..... The Charger was a challenge. especially the chassis and engine. The Ferrari was surprisingly easy
