Sounds good Mohawkk. I might have to break out one of the yellow Lotus 78's.

I prept one of the Williams cars for a runner, but havent tried it out as of yet.

I dont race them, so i havent done anything to them (I have added weight to a few of my march) But they are just so cool to blast around the track. give them a bit around the corners and they slide, so great to watch.

Have had a busy last few months with the collection, picking up quite a few new cars. Fly trucks are my lastest obsession. Have been collecting them for a month now, and have another five in transit. looking forward to seeing how this truck collection turns out.

Im very keen on anything that slot.it produce, so I have included a pic of the lastest limited edition car from the european champion's. The second car is for another member on here. I was expecting another Warsteiner livery, but the Jagermeister looks pretty cool

The postie was quite busy on Friday. These are a few of the interesting ones.

The polar light kits seem to be great value and detail. Will be building one each of the kits in a few years once little clevo can handle a controller. The Transformer Camaro is a beauty and I finally got another MG Vanquish open wheeler at a reasonable price.

Nice pickup Clevo - that blue Jaeger is cracker and with only 48 made it is bound to be a very desirable item for the discerning collector.

I just noticed the Lucky Strike Vanquish - that one must complete the Vanquish collection?

These have dropped off in price of late. I picked up mine for $160au, and was very happy paying that. People were asking $350 plus for any of the open wheelers from MG Vanquish. Mobbzee if you come across the Blue one or Gold leaf at a reasonable price ,let me know.

Hi Pete,
I dont just have a single contact for these kind of models, Im a customer of many worldwide stores that try to find some of the rarer items for me. Also Im searching the web at every chance I get. I came across the Blue Jager by chance as i was searching images for slot.is, an it turned up on the USA ebay (no more from this seller). Best bet is to search the brand your after in images!

Im sure more of these Blue Jager liveries will turn up pretty soon under another race name. Most of these limited cars become prizes for multiple international events. THey will just have another label on the front of the case. Hope this helps

The same, but a bit different.....

Posted Image


Of course, in a way it is a bit unique - it is 1 of 24 'Slot.it Shootout' Gold Jagers (and the only one in Australia...)

Still M.I.B. - and I'm not sure what to do with it.....

But there's no way I'd part with the Mazda that earned it - it is widely held that this thing is one of most widely travelled slot cars in the world. Consider this:

As a White Kit, 2010 made in China - shipped to Seattle USA. From to USA to Oz, prepped and sent back to USA for 2010 Slot.it Shootout. 2010 Shootout goes from USA to NZ to Oz and back to USA. End of 2010 series car comes back to Oz. Reprepared agin and sent back to USA for 2011 Slot.it Shootout - which runs around USA & Canada, back to Oz and back to USA. End of 2011 series, Mazda and Jager Porsche are sent to Oz......

So - this Mazda has raced something like over 68,000 ft, travelled over the Pacific Ocean 10 times and visited 4 countries and a lot of racetracks....

Hence the 'patina of battle'...... :

There's only two questions:

1. What direction do you go
2. What's the Lap Record?

Tbirds had these for $80 ea .Not sure if there getting anymore in, but it could be worth asking just incase they do. I managed to get a few from a UK shop which worked out under $80ea landed here.

Two more Fly trucks to the collection,one Ninco Xlot (only need one more to complete series) ,two NSCC limited edition slot.it lola's,two sideways Capri's.Fly's 2004 catalogue GT40 car and a few MG Vanquish's. I only wanted to buy the Gold leaf Lotus to complete my open wheeler collection, but to obtain the Lotus i had to buy the lot......Now I need to find the other Vanquishs as I cant has an uncomplete collection............ :wacko:

Finally have the five open wheeler's from MG Vanquish. The Brabham being the hardest to come by out of the five. These cars have fast become very collectable

A better picture of the NSCC slot.it lola's. Only 312 made and these are #15 & #69 of 312. Quite a rare model as not many of these have been up for sale.

Hi

Have just uploaded and labeled about 1/3 of the Scaley cars in the collection to the Photo Bucket catalogue. Still alot alot more in boxes that I have go through.Hoping to have the Scaley cars all accounted for early next year, as im unable at present to finish the catalogue. THought it would be easier posting them in different stages.

Hopefully the link will work as Photo Bucket has changed a little since I last used it.

Clevo

Once you open link, hit "view all". it makes it easier to view the collection
