    ”What are the chances of finding the colour and model match.“
    Metallics are the hardest to get right on small scale models. Usually too coarse or too thick and just don’t look right. 
     
    My best result was Tamiya TS-30 Silver Leaf then topcoat with clear on 1:24 scale. 
    This gives a nice fine realistic finish.

    Hi Peter,
     
    My car is Quartz Grey Metallic (X5X5). 84 Aust Del.
    This is as close as I'm ever going to get with this colour.

    OK, thought I'd better check my recently acquired Burago GT3 against the real thing.  I'd thought the colour was pretty right when I got it, but when you directly compare, bit of difference.  But, who cares, I'm not going to do the comparison often 🙂
    I started to do the colour change of a 987 Boxster to our old car (when we had it), still at the dismantled stage 😞

    Another pressie to myself arrived today.  Was lucky enough to snag a speed yellow 996.1 GT3 Clubsport via Ebay, identical to my previous LHD car.  Pretty good model, very accurate except the engine is standard 996, and no red brake calipers (picky aren't I).  Also purchased a 996.2 C2.  No Seal Grey available, so thought Lapis Blue was next best (there was a speed yellow but I'd already got the GT3 in that colour).  Expensive, but non current models, so suspect could be a reasonable investment over time.  Thanks to Xero for the funding 🙂

    Hardly bragging mate, it's just a little cheap collection. Most of that lot are matchbox, the 2 Earl Bamber cars are new.
    I used to buy 1/18 cars all the time but have scaled back my collection, still have a couple of Aussie muscle cars, one extremely sought after Greens Tuff Falcon.
    A bit of Moffat as well.

    Niko reacted to Dalai in Coronavirus - what do you think?   
    With the current monopoly, are there alternatives?
    Given the clip of cars illegally parked for over a kilometre out past Warburton with masses checking out the Redwoods last weekend and ignoring social isolation, the second wave and further lockdowns is inevitable!
