View Full Version : Die-Cast Models?

25th August 2005, 09:41 AM
Anybody here collect die-cast models of ... well ... anything that moves. I don't have a big collection but at the moment my favourite is this G4 Defender 90 in 1:18 scale:

I have a similar model, (not G4). Mine is a dark green TD5. I also took out the rear seats to make it more like the Aust ones. 8O

Mmm, i'll have to watch out for some in that scale 8)

I mostly make placy models, but I do have a nice die cast Corvette (original one) in the collection as well.

I do have an F40 and a Dodge Viper but thats all at the moment. Nice model. Glad to see its needs a wash just like the real ones style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif

As mentioned in a previous post recently - I've got a Holden VT Clubsport, a Western Australian VT Commodore Police unit, and a Victorian VT SS "S.M.A.R.T." police highway patrol car, all in 1:18.

Not really a fanatical collector of them, but I've got an interest in police cars, so I keep an eye out for them from time to time.

<span style="color:blue">saw a model of allan moffats gt at eastern creek a few weeks ago.....

they wanted $1200 for it......

the last time i saw one of those was when we took one up to melbourne
for the 75th anniversary of ford, a few years ago.
they were only around $400 back then.......

the one we took with us we got autographed by the man himself.......
wonder what that would be worth today........?</span>

Asking $1200 and getting it, well as you know thats two very different things :?

I've got a 1/2 dozen or so 1:18 500 cc racing bikes. Not worth a great deal yet but maybe if I can get some signed :wink:
Don't collect them for their monetary value anyway style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif
Plus a little disco 2 sitting on a shelf downstairs style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif
