Well it came up in irc, and I thought it was about time for another thread on the matter! For all you 1:18 collectors out there, how about taking some pics of your stash and putting them up for all to see?
I've gotta say that I've never come across any models more detailed and realistic than those produced by AutoArt. They are second to none! Their quality has really turned me off the V8 Supercar 1:18 models, they can't compete! Their damn doors don't even open!
Anyhow, to start the ball rolling, here's a few shots of two of my AutoArt 1:18's... an R34 GTR Skyline and an XB GT!!
First up, the Skyline...
... and now for the mighty GT!!
Bring it on chaps!

Don't break my arse, my bargey wargey arse, I don't think my pants would understand!

Nice collection guys! I am a huge plastic model kit collector and i have a huge collection of 1:18 biante, maisto, american muscle,autoart and i'm still adding to my collection! My favourates are the biante/autoarts because of their great detail. I have all the entire brock collection so far including Lc,Lj, Lh L-34 , A9X toranas and theres a few commos comming. I have the dick johnson collection including Xb ,XC, XD, XE , mustang + they are going to release his first race car the LC . I have the moffat collection with XW, XY, XB, XC, XD, XA is coming also XC 1-2 77 bathurst winners. I also have various XW,XY , V8 supercars, (ford and holden) craig lowndes fords , moffat mustang ,ferraris,lambo's,porsche's ,pickup's and countless others which i have packed away and forgotten about! the only problem is that i need another house just for the die cast cars so i can display them! I'd hate to count them , it would probably pay for a ba xt!
