    Hi all I have started collecting 1:18 scale cars and just wondering how many of you all collect them and what you have in your collection??

    Correctly I have a VF2 redline and a motorsport both in white and just bought a 2000 Monaro in black that should be here next week.

    Would love to get a maloo with opening parts but can’t seem to find any.

    So what has everyone got and how is it displayed?

    Oh dear.
    Mattricho, you have just started an addiction that is worse than alcohol, ciggys and illicit drugs…… non of which I subscribe to.

    About 30 years ago, I saw a 1:43 1968 Bathurst winner HK Monaro in a souvenir store, and bought it, because I was there to witness that historic, world changing event.
    Since then I have accumulated 80 1:18 race and road cars, from Beechey’s EH to the 2009 Bathurst winning VE. These are very easy to get carried away with as the cost is a bit high, so I have stuck with a theme of Bathurst winners and other ‘significant’ ATCC models.
    In addition, 320 1:43 road car from FJ to VF and all the other associated Aussie Fords and Valiants in between, and 220 1:43 race cars from 1953 to 2012.

    Maloos are only available in sealed resin, and pretty rare. I have the red Gen F, and think that a white version was released not long ago by Apex Replicas.
    Edit … http://www.apexreplicas.com.au/road-car/640125228-hsv-vf-maloo-r8.html

    I wish you well, and many $$$s with any forthcoming addiction.

    Cheers @figjam would love to see some pics of you can.

    I think any that I get now are going to be in the hero colour like the GTS-R W1 that Im getting in light my fire and the Motorsport in white.

    I have seen some Maloo’s but was just hopping someone did an opening parts one
