View Thread: Just picked up some more 1/18 scale car models

I hit the jackpot. My bro had to make a run to Costco. I told him to keep a lookout for some Maisto models. I get a call about 10 minutes later saying they had a lot of them for $9.99. SCORE! Since I was not there in person I had him pick up the few I liked the description of. I more than doubled my model collection! Here are tonights treasures :D

So if there is a Costco near you, they might have the same thing going on. It is so worth picking these up while you can at $9.99 a pop. The SL55 AMG alone goes for $30 on exoticcar.com!!

Autoart stuff is really nice. Unfortunately it is a lot more pricey.

Nice pickups. I love collecting model cars (I have 10 as of now). I plan on asking for some for Hanukka and my birthday. I really need to go to Costco once my mom joins again.

1972 Chevrolet Vega (blue),

A 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz - pink (of course!)

"Yeah, my love is bigger than a Honda. It's bigger than a Subaru.
You know there's only one thing, one car that'll do.
Honey, we don't have to drive it, we can park it out in back,
And have a party in your pink Cadillac!"

I've only got two 1:18 scale models. I have a H1 softop, and the exact same Carrera 4 that the original poster bought.

I just couldn't bring myself to buy either that color or lime green for myself.

I just got my latest catalog from Exoticar. Oh man, there goes more money!

mustangdriver
Sweet, thanks for the pic. That's not as hideous an orange as you made it sound. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get it. Friday perhaps.
