I have been enjoying these models all of you have so graciously shared.  Here are three of my more recent finds, including the first one, purchased here on the Forum Auction.  The other two are from older 1/43 metal kits.

While returning these to their display areas, I found another Avanti that was built from the same Pioneers Models kit as the blue one above.

I like those Avantis. I remember many years ago thinking of buying one, 1:1 scale. However, never did.

@ed-davis   Ed, be sure to check John's recent post on the Avanti in the Lounge.  It's special!

@michel-lemieux I got the Brooklin Lincoln a month ago. It is not bad but needs detailing to be close to par with resin models of the period as GLM Buick and Cadillacs and of course, Automodello Packards.

This is a terrific idea for a thread. Very hard choices, but I will give it a try.

@nickies Although I am satisfied with my NB Lincoln, my wallet cannot support these purchases and I have to be very selective. I don't think I'll buy more than one model by year and even there. I also missed the standard BRK Lincoln and even with less detail it would have done my thing. Possibly that I would have spent my turn on the NB Lincoln? What bother me is seeing all his models, no matter in resin or white metal, being on bases and having to remove the screws to put his models directly on my glass shelves. Still displays that take up space and when you move and have to put everything back together, I think it's a waste of time. I'm not a big fan of the new boxes. I prefer the models when they are straight in the box and well protected. Difficult to do this with resin models or for white metal models that come back to me with Canadian customs fees, the shipping cost, etc, sometimes above 400usd. In addition, since the pandemic, I find that the delivery service sometimes leaves something to be desired and I often wonder in what condition I will receive the model? I am sometimes in reflexion and wonder if i will continue to collect for a long time? Probably buy one or two models by year just for the shape and just to say that i am always a collector. I like your three models.

I like a lot of the DeAgostini American Cars series acquired this year. A great series of American muscle.

I'm going in a different direction to most of you in my current purchases. I'm really into race cars and Jaguars. Here are three of this year's purchases.

I really have trouble calling them the best because I love all that I purchase for myself, for a variety of reasons.

 

Bentley Speed 8, #7,  Winner at Twenty Four Hours of Le Mans, 2003 - 1/43 Spark

s l1600

 

Jaguar F-Type SVR, 2016 - 1:43 IXO Supercars Model Diecast Italian Edition S17.

This is the F-Type as it appeared at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016

s l1600

 

Toyota TS050 Toyota Yazoo Racing #8, Winner at Twenty Four Hours of Le Mans, 2019 - 1/43 Spark special issue out of Taiwan.

s l1600
