I'm quite new here at HobbyTalk having joined back in December. I was checking out the message string about the 1:43 Matchbox Collectibles, of which I have three, and was inspired to share a few of my own 1:43d's. First is a Boss Models '70 Mustang Boss 302. Second is a PTH Models '72 Camaro Z28. Both of these are made in England and are HEAVY, about 8 ounces apiece. The holes in the doors are for the mirrors which you can't install without screwing up the paint job. The third and fourth models, a '55 Chevy Bel Air and Studebaker Avanti are Collector's Classics (Buby) from Argentina, hand made, and have the handwritten name of the builder on the bottom. They are a '55 Chevy Bel Air and a Studebaker Avanti. I paid a small fortune for all four about 10 years, but I'm not sure if today they'd command the price I paid. However, I really don't care. I love them just the same and really enjoy having them in my collection.

Enjoy

I am only relaying the message to her I exist in the world of RC next door but love 1/24 just wish they were'nt made in malaysia now so I try to just look at the car . :freak:
