In this post, I'm going to talk about a pastime of mine; collecting model cars. Okay, some may say it is a sort of strange hobby, but who cares? Not me. I started as an early teenager back in the '80s and stopped when it got too 'childish'.  In the 2000's something rekindled my enthusiasm (I have always liked classic cars - check my post on the Peking-Paris Rally) and I started collecting again. Now I have nearly 200, all the same scale 1:43 and often normal everyday cars, a few racing cars, and a plethora of exotics. 

It seems to have become really popular in the last 5-10 years and there are many company's offering good scale reproductions, such as Minichamps, IXO, Ebbro and Vanguards to name a few. Here is a selection -
