    My own collection goes beyond F1 too, BTCC and various touring cars are my main passion, but i always have my eye out for a bargain 1/43 scale F1 car, although i tend to buy only the cars that appeal to me, or the rarer ones like the 95 Jordon.

    Oh, and i only ever buy 1/43 scale, i would never have room for anything bigger

    What are the Prices on Schumacher Minichamp B194s like these days?

    I know a few years ago when I bought mine it cost something like 100 quid, but it was the only B194 I could get. I wanted it to get signed, and is a prized possesion now

    I bought mine years ago, it didn't cost me anything like a 100 quid though, then again its not signed. Without looking on eBay its hard to say what they are fetching now.

    I collect F1 cars, GP bikes and Superbikes and also have some Le Mans cars and rally cars and road cars.

    I have all Williams F1 cars from 1991 up to today in 1:18 and several other F1 cars mostly from the 1990s overall I think I have about 30 F1 cars all 1:18, I also have the Senna helmet collection by Minichamp 1:8

    At the moment most of them are at in their boxes stored at my parents house but I’m planning to have a room at my place dedicated to them, hopefully I will get it done during xmas
    I got my motorcycle jacket, but I'm walking all the time...

    I have a goal in life to collect every F1 Ferrari that has ever raced in 1:43. I've got something like 20-25%. I will probably never get them all as I have neither the space nor the money. Not to mention a wife that can't understand what I see in "toy" cars.
    Forza Ferrari!!

    I'm glad to see this thread! I have about 200 models in 1:43rd scale (much easier to display and store.) I am also trying to get a full F1 Ferrari collection which should be easier now that IXO is producing the La Storia models of all the years Ferrari has been in F1. I have several BBR Ferraris from 1997 to 2006 (soon).

    I also have a few CanAm models (McLarens and Chaparrals) as well as some of the newer LeMans/ALMS models including the Penske Porsche RS Spyder which I had the 4 team drivers autograph athe the Utah GP ALMS race this past July. I was also able to get Alan McNish and Mika Salo to autograph two older F1 Toyota models at the same event. (It's amazing how many drivers with some F1 in their background are in ALMS.) With a little luck, I'll get some more in 2007.

    I generally collect Ferraris and any unique F1 car as well as those of teams or drivers I like.

    I also have a few Ayrton Senna models including the Minichamps boxed set of his first win and his last win.

    All indications were it was Tamiya's decision to drop the earlier kits after a riff with McLaren (Ferrari did recind their licensing at one time). They later reissued the MP4/4 through MP4/8s and issued the then new MP4/13, of which I've always found to be available. Still hoping they reissued the M23s with a different livery, as they recently did with the Tyrrell six wheeler.

    I buy and build only what appeals to me and I rarely buy diecasts for F1 subjects. I've accumulated lots of F1 in 1/20 and quite a few in 1/12. Last year I got the Revell Germany 1/12 F2002 and 126C (ex-Protar). Also have a 1/8 scale McLaren M23. Have passed on a couple of the 1/8 Lotus 72s.

    Quite a bit of superdetail stuff still coming out for the 1/12 kits. Master modeler Andy Mathews did a book on building the FW14 and has books on the MP4/6 ad Ferrari 640/641 due next year http://www.clearviewf1.com/

    Quite a bit on F1 modeling in the archives at http://www.modelersite.com/
