Found (among a lot of other things) by a friend in the attic of his late grandfather:

A 1935 Renault YF or ZY (fr)? For what it's worth, 4768 RN6 was a registration made in the Seine department (i.e. Paris) in 1945 (fr).

I've only got 2 Tomicas, but they're Rootes-jewels

so I don't need any more. Two Isuzu Hillman Minxes, with a 1:43 Vanguards Minx S3a behind.

Right now I have over 700+ vehicles in my collection (95% were Tomica). I been collecting since 2011 and still going up today. I mostly collect them, but aswell resell them on Ebay/FB for value price so I could buy more to collect.

BTW, this is only some of it, a few more on my table since I have no more "parking" space for them.

Indeed such fragile model cars may look well detailed but I'm also a little afraid on how these will age. And these are "too detailed" anyway :grin:
I have a few, often bought when discounted, but I prefer the more common style of model cars, like those we find in the 20-30€ price range (or 10-15€ in press shops collections)

There's been a flow of 1/43 scale models of old american cars in the past few years, from the 1940s to the 1990s, but they're molded in resin instead of metal, and the prices are unreal. From 60 euro to more than 150 euro, sometimes. The manufacturers are Neo and its offshoot American Excellence, TSM, Spark, Matrix, GLM, and a few more.

But most of the time, they leave me cold. The way they're designed, with resin bodies, windows made from thin plastic foil, and many photoetched parts, I wonder how they'll fare as years go by. I've already heard horror stories about photo-etched parts gone missing after a simple dust cleaning. :sad:

I do like Spark's racing cars, though.

I have a collection of approx 150 1/43 scale diecasts and some white metal, all 1950s-60's Yankee barges and find buying some new stock difficult, the mass market does the same vehicles over and over again, there are only so many '57 Chevys I want to buy.

The manufacturers who do more obscure vehicles have raised prices to daft levels, I used to get Brooklins for £40, now they're £90+, add in the postage rates from the states have gone ridiculous and the collection isn't growing much any more.

Nice russian models!

I bought an Audi Q7 of these russian series several months ago in a stand quite near from me:

There were a lot of russian cars too, but as usual I have to put the brakes to myself when buying model cars as I don't want to quit too much my main theme (for obvious money & space reasons).

My thoughts exactly!

^ model makers often try to depict realism from the original car .....
