kmchow should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I've really tried hard to cut back. There are more ST/DTM models out there than money in my bank account. I've tried to cut back to buying models that are somehow special or I have connections to, like I saw them up close before or seen them in a museum before.

I hope we don't ever end up competing for the same model, but check out www.ebay.com. They tonnes of ST/DTM models. You can sometimes find killer dealers on it.

Any BTCC 1:43 collectors here? (merged)

Hey does anyone know whatever happened to all those die cast models of the British Touring Cars? They only went up to the 1999 season then just stopped? can you still get the 2000 -2003 season cars or not? Do they still make them?:confused:

I haven't seen any models of the cars for years after the regulations changed - I don't think it was worth it for the diecast manufacturers, the super tourers were used worldwide so they could produce loads of different liveries all based on a single casting. Since then the BTCC has been out on its own for regulations so the potential production run for models is much less.

I've been looking for either diescasts or resin kits of the current BTCC cars but I can't find any

There haven't really been many- if any- models of the current BTCC cars that I can think of- it was a lot easier to do models of touring cars during the Supertouring period, as the manufacturers (who are all overseas anyway) could use the same basic casting of each type of car to represent cars from almost any touring car series by just painting and decalling/printing to match the appropriate cars from the BTCC, STW Cup or whatever.

As the Touring-class cars from the BTCC are unique to the UK, I guess that at present they don't think there's enough sales potential for them- (you can get DTM cars though, so maybe they're seen as having more sales appeal even outside Germany...)

Does anyone do current ETCC cars?- (I don't think I've seen any around yet?)- with ETCC-spec cars beginning to appear in the BTCC, then maybe we'll see more models around.

I can't remember whether there were any 2000-season BTCC Supertouring cars modelled or not- although a little while ago I think someone did post a link in another thread to a website listing what touring car models had been produced

I know the Vauxhall Motorsport Muller/Thompson Scalextric car has just come out (2002 version) but its on a DTM chassis and body and in my view makes it look silly. Apart from that I haven't seen any new model cars...apart from scalextric and radio controlled versions of the Vauxhall and Honda.

yeah the new scalextric model does look quite stupid. i think there just cutting corners by doing that. i heard that the company that made the die casts had gone bust as had the company that did the season review books.

I posted that link (can't remember it now) - I found it on one of my fruitless searches for models of the new spec BTCC cars. The only diecast tourers produced since the reg changes are the DTM cars.

You can also get the MG, and Proton, but they are for the racing side of RC, and don't really look like the BTCC cars.

As for ETCC, there is a BMW you can get (the one with the car parts painted on the side), but I haven't seen one in the UK.
i didn't know you could get the MG or Proton? i've got the other two the Vauxhall and Honda there great. But why did they have to use stickers for the livery?

OTOH, there were never any BTCC Mondeos from the '97 season on, after they had the new facelift. I thought they were the best looking cars around! You could have bought cars from every other make? I don't know why Ford was the exception?

yeah there's no reason why. unless they were just to lazy to be bothered with making the new model Mondeo. which is ashame really because the later Mondeos would of looked really good.

I very much doubt that it down to lazyness.

Probably that the previous Mondeo models didn't sell, and they thought that it would be a waste of money making the model only to sell a few hundred.
