I just showed my wife who said "What in gods name is that" when viewing the pictures of boxes... I then proceeded to scan through the photos at which point she said "you people are just sick....." - she was obviously not referring to me :)

Still I doubt anything will change here with a few new deliveries scheduled to arrive this week ...

Also in the picture with the Camaro's, I can't see the #40 Vince Gimondo (probably in another box along with the Sunoco's).

Good eye's miveson...........Im not really a Camaro man myself, I actually dont have quite a few of the camaro's and the Vince #40 car is one of those.

Had to laugh at your wifes comments :o .

Clevo,

I was worried about my collection getting out of hand... just counted them and only have 68... only 1,432 to go.

Now my only worry is affording the SSD digital chips for them all.

Unbloodybelievable.... keep posting pics its a very enjoyable thread (not game to show my wife these pics she'll only get worried)

Cheers

Phil

That is a simply truly awesome collection you have there Clevo; and a large number of very desirable ones amongst them too! Like a lot of guys on here have said, you are a god-send also ... now all I need to do is show the other half the pics of your collection and my slot and diecast collection will be totally safe from comment.

I seriously hope you have good insurance cover!

Cheers,
Jon

Hi all

Thought I would just update where Im at with cataloguing the collection. The collection has really grown since posting the first pic's, (some would say its out of hand) with both the new cars & early secondhand Scaley ones. Im hoping that I should have it all completed in a few months. All the individual photo's will be placed into an album on Photobucket with sub albums for each of the brands. Im currently going through all the pic's and sorting them out into their designated categories. THe slot.it collection has been completed and a link has been included for your viewing (178 cars with 7 more in transit). http://s274.photobuc...tion/?start=all

I have also included a pic of the Poineer collection. If you compare it to the first photo in this thread, you can understand how its gotten out of hand.

Stay tuned, more pic's soon to follow.

Matt, I havent posted much of the vintage stuff as of yet. But it will all be on here once that side of the collection has been catalogued. My main interest in this hobby is Scalextrics from 1957 through to the 1980's and Ford GT40's from all different manufacture's in 1/32 & 1/24.

As meantioned above, all items in the collection will have images placed in a collection folder on Photobucket with sub folders to each of the different brands for ease of identification,modifying,cataloguing & for insurance coverage.

Have just completed the NSR items and have included a pic below. The older scaley cars are proving to be time consuming to catalogue so they will be last.

Here is the link for the individual cars in the Pioneer bulk picture above http://s274.photobuc...neer/?start=all

Its been a very productive week for the slot collection, picking up quite a few cars that I didnt already have. I was lucky enought to be in the right place at the right time over the weekend. I originally missed the boat with Scalextric's JGTC range of cars, as I only bought a couple of Skylines. I never worried about chasing the others required to complete the JGTC series as they became harder to come by an expensive. I now have the complete series in the standard Scaley form.

Still going through the older Scaley cars, so I havent got anymore pic's to post of the older side of the collection. Hoping to have it all completed soon.

The latest Lotus 78 turned up today in the post. Have included a pic of the other Grand Prix cars which where'nt included in the orginal Fly photo. I didnt mean to order four yellow Lotus 78's, somehow the order was duplicated.


The #69 Gauge Master Williams F1 is in the correct colour. THe first version was withdrawn from sale due to being painted in the incorrect colour
