BEFORE I START THIS OFF I JUST WANTED TO SAY THIS WILL BE A LOT OF READING, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Hey guys, long time no see
Kicking this one off with something I had on my mind for a while now, a topic for all members' collections of various motorsport memorabilia.
Of course I have one of my own and with my new load of cars that came in today I remembered I wanted to do this so here I am.
My current collection consits of 38 cars scale 1:43 and 2 scale 1:18 as well as 4 autographs of F1 drivers.
To start this one some pics of the autographs:
The first two are of 3x F1 drivers' champion Sir Jackie Stewart ,next one is of 1x F1 GP winner Peter Gethin as well as one of the late Sir John Surtees. All of these autographs sholud be genuine, though I can only be certain for the first one as I got it signed via a personal request per mail.
Next of are going to be the 1:43 as these are the main part of my collection, first off I will show some pictures, then a detailed list of informations about the individual cars will follow. My 1:43 is devided in open-wheel and closed-wheel cars, each one has their own shelf and is sorted by the age of the original (i.e. from the oldest to the newest car)(I warned you that this will be a lot of reading)

Alright, with that the main part of my collection is done, I do own a Alpine A110 and a Lancia Fulvia HF in 1:18 scale but can't take pictures of them any more as it has now become so dark outside that taking pictures with my phone is impossible
I hope you liked this 'quick' tour and I will be glad to see the colletions of others as well, bye for now
