    The best way to get an iconic race-car in your room is to collect it as a modelcar. This is my other passion apart from visiting motorsport events. I want to share some pictures of my diecasts - enjoy them!

    Great looking models!

    Excellent photos - makes them look like studio shots of the full sized classics - all in focus. Is that from focus stacking?

    Thank you, Tropicalmemories, for compliments! I took the pictures in a very unspectacular way with my old 1000D and the kit lens using hidden sunlight, a tripod, and a white cardboard. Afterwards it's a long procedure to edit the picture in PS.

    These are slick models. I used to sell them in my hobby store and even back then they were a bit pricey. I see now they range in price from $250 to $500 + Great builds and shots.

    Thank you, Chris, for nice compliments! Sometimes the prices for (old) Exotos are going mad and they are often much too high - supply and demand, but often wishful thinking and not realistic!

    There was one model on that scale that was so detailed that you had to build the engine, too. I think if you gassed it up, it would run but for the life of me, I cannot think of its name - sold the store in 1990.
