    Those probably cost way more than my collection combined. I started with Autoart's Murcielago when the car was first released back in early 2000s. However a few years later, prices of Auto Art shot up dramatically and I've stopped buying since. Mine are no where as exquisite as yours. The most expensive I have is probably the Kyosho Ferrari F40. BTW I was at the HK Toy fair this year and CMC showed some of their hand crafted naked body shells. OMG those are so sexy!

    Thank you for your nice posting!
    IMO it's not really necessary to own a lot of models and the most expensive ones. The main motivation collecting models is to have pleasure with them. I guess you have a lot of with your Kyosho Ferrari - a beautiful model as well. Maybe you can buy used models in the future - many diecasts in my collection are second-hand like the next one:
