thetool should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Prices are silly these days and just not affordable. It wasn't even when I was still collecting a few years ago. Sitting on at least £5k worth of Le Mans winners, really should do something about moving them on.

It really is amazing how prices have soared.

I was doing a clear out of old documents a few months back and found some receipts for model cars from the early noughties. Genuinely astonishing how cheap a hobby it used to be relative to today.

Good to see you back Knowlesy

Craig.

I reckon a Montoya car could fund about 25% of a modern model.

No pulled them out of an old antiques show in Stow On The Wold that was closing down. Really would have liked something made with tempered glass since we have the kids now but needs must

haha my mind did wander back to the visit there with the sadly missed TimD back in the day when I took the photos. Sadly no full sized cars when you rotate 180 degrees. Just a wardrobe.

What happened to AutoArt?

I'm only a minor collector and I'm only really interested in Porsche 917's. My collecting itch was reactivated at the weekend and I ended up browsing the new releases. I haven't bought anything in years and I was amazed to see how few racing cars AutoArt now have in their line-up.

What happened to AutoArt?

Last cars I ever bought from them were the fabulous Mazda 787b and my favourite Lola Aston Martin LMP1. They don't seem to be producing anything like this any more.

Didn't stop me from completing my 917 line up with a new-to-me CMR 1971 winner. I'm guessing Custom Model Replicars are knock-offs of the old UH/Autoart models?
Anyone got any news as to what happened to this hobby? Doesn't look like there is anywhere near as much available.

I think the hobby is alive and well. However, the 'Diecast' makers like Autoart and Minichamps have been left behind by more highly detailed resin models from Spark and TSM (True Scale Models).


Additionally, many Le Mans collectors have found 1:18 models take up too much space and there is a much better range of Le Mans cars in 1:43. You can also get ~4 1:43 cars for the price of a 1:18.


Based on my records, around 3,500 Le Mans cars have now been produced in 1:43, and for the last 15 years you can buy more than 90% of the grid. Here's a few of the 2019 I've bought this year:

Nice photos! And they are all 1:43? Very impressive.
Certainly, one of the reasons I limited myself was 1:18 takes up a lot of space. I do prefer that scale though - 1:43 just seems a little too toy sized.
I don't have anything by Spark - I just looked at their website and I see they have Marko/Van Lennep's 1971 917 due for release. Damn. Maybe I should have waited another year!
