It's no wonder you all it the Tardis John! :lol: Like the Tardis it's also decievingly big inside. You've manged to cram a lot in there and it still looks like a comfortable workspace. Great selection of models you have on display in there. Where did you source your display shelves?

Cheers!

Thanks Vinny... the shelves were from IKEA... but I believe they are discontinued now, they are good but not airtight so require dusting... the whole stash won't fit in the TARDIS so most kits are up in the loft... which means I tend to forget some I have....

Here is some of the car kits from the loft... the top ones are 1/12 & 1/16 kits... the rest are 1/24

:shock: a passing interest in Bavarin Motor Werke.
Touring M3s and that pair of E30s under the pit racing team are cool.
loads of kits.... but no confidence to build...!!
Fear of failure..has me this way..

Above all else I am a massive BMW Group fan (This includes the MINI and Rolls-Royce)... I have about 150 (1/43) and 40 (1/18) diecast in my collection... all of them BMW, the largest group of models are dedicated to the E30 M3 [smilie=banghead.gif]

It is through my belonging to a model club that I have been encouraged to build other subjects... at first I only built IAC aircraft but now am happy to tackle anything that takes my fancy like the Revell Routemaster London Bus for example.

8-) a few M1 s in different liveries would be a nice addition to the collection.

I do have the 1/18 Minichamps Museum edition Andy Warhol M1 Art Car and the BASF Procar... [smilie=thumb.gif]

But better than that I was taken round Silverstone (on a BMW Owners club day) in Niki Lauders Marllboro M1 and Soper's M3 DTM... ahh the memories...

It shows you are a serious hobbyist and you've been at this a very long time :o)b not that your workmanship displays this in plentiful amounts.... it'd take me a lifetime to put together such a collection of paints and whatnot >:oZ
