Hi Everyone,

Thought I would share my collection so far. A lot of these ASC's were purchased from members of this forum. Thanks for all your help!!

I'm still working on adding to my collection. I am always looking for harder to find bodies, so if you have any you think i might like, drop me a pm. Ones I would like to add are all the Calsonic Skylines and 350Z's.

If there are any you would like to see a better picture of, let me know. I just didnt want to take the plastic sleeves off every single one.

Thanks for looking, and hope you enjoy.

Bill

Hi Guys!

Thanks for looking and commenting. I'm pretty happy with the collection so far. I have only been collecting since october. I'm so disappointed that i let the tokuhon supra get away early on when i started. hopefully it comes through ebay again.

What are some favorite bodies of yours? regardless of rare or common. My favorite is probably the 2002 calsonic.

It is a nice addition to the collection. I feel like I have a legitimate "rare" ASC now.

The focus belonged to the owner of our local club. He had it at the shop behind the counter, and used to race with it. You wouldnt be able to tell though because it is still in perfect condition. He knows i am collecting bodies and offered it to me. Couldnt pass it up even if it is used.

Here you can see one part of my colection with some of my rare ASC body.

I love particulary my complet set of supra's bodies. And also my two mad max durty and "The Mac Go Go Go". Some of my friends have propose me an exchange with 4 bodies, for one mad max durty. But it is unimaginable.

Thanks Arch! I did see this as well. Unfortunately the seller says it has been in an accident with scuff marks, so probably not for me. I believe the direct market place on this forum has one as well. Not the readyset, but the body. I have considered it. but not high on my priority list.

thanks for the heads up though!!

Hi Arch, first off, i saw your submission for the 10 anniversary white body contest, and you've done a fantastic job! not much competition, but you would've had my vote!

the bttf deloreans, i know we have here at the tinyrc shop. I'm really looking to locate the limited plated version first before buying the others. i'm sure by the time i find the plated, the regular ones will no longer be available. :o

2011.03.10, 02:55 PM

i actually have the plated BBTF asc however it's open, loose but complete. the brushed finish is awsome but fingerprints easily. i have the standard finish still new in box. i think you will really like the plated version.

yep, looks awsome! wish they made the front rope light up as well though. sort of a drag that it doesn't.
http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/907/medium/IMG_0152.jpg

over the last 10 years, i've had 80% of the bodies released at some point or another. i don't hold on to many anymore, just the rare ones and gifts from others. i also have an original initial d ae86 readyset unopened, still wrapped in plastic! i bought this more as an ID fan, than as a collector.
http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/data/942/idkyoshoae861.jpg

i've been hunting for a resonably priced original series brown box readyset. the few i've seen were far to expensive for my liking.

i really like the dirty mad max asc as well. very nice detail.

do you plan on taking full lineup pictures for the series you have completed?

I am wondering how i should store them in the long term. right now, they are just in a spare bedroom in my house. they are lined up against the wall, grouped by car company. the first few pictures in this thread show how they are. they wrap around a wall and a half. I like this way, so that i can see the cars.

I've seen pictures of soulstice's closet too. it is so organized, its great. with mine, i have long cases, short cases, cases without the plastic sleeves, i dont think it'll look as good as soultice's.

Hi, I too have a few autoscales, I was wondering how you determine which ones are hard to find etc,

soulstice
2011.03.14, 04:21 PM
In regards to storage, there is also one other thing to consider...exposure to sunlight.

Some of the older bodies that are white can yellow if exposed to sunlight or cigarette smoke for an extended period of time so to protect these little wheeled treasures it's best to protect them as much as possible by thinking about where you put them in a room.

I have my stuff in a closet, just because I had one handy and it happened to fit the autoscales perfectly. I keep them organized by case size(by row) and then by manufacturer(Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, etc). I do intend to build a semi-custom display case once I have the time to do so.

in my case some decals that are on white bodies kinda turned yellowish... i.e. porsche gt3 2002 and toyota supra tokuhon...
wondering if putting them in a vacuum sealed box, or a similar type that controls humidity (dry boxes - the type you would put your camera and gear) would help...

soulstice
2011.03.15, 09:22 AM
@all
The #12 calsonic is not part of the "normal" 10th anniversary set which was released 4 at a time. I do remember seeing a graphic with 10 skylines shown a while back. It depicted the normal set of 8, the Unsia Jecs, and a silhouette with a question mark. Perhaps the #12 is that car.

@Herman
The decals can yellow, especially on the two cars you mentioned. Once it's taken place it's irreversible but yes keeping away from light and having low humidity will help keep it in good condition.

fyi, there are ways to restore plastic finishes however they could be damaging to decals, chrome plating, etc. i know of some tricks that i use on vintage plastic gi joe, transformers, etc. that have proven to work very well in restoring color depth and vibrancy without damaging the plastic however stickers are removed and they do not have gloss coats, etc.

Do you race or just collect? Nice lot.

Hi Ocean, unfortunately I do not race. I really wanted to and fully intended to when I started in this hobby. I've built a PN Racer, but I just find it difficult to find the time to go to the track. My local track is fantastic and the guys there are all great guys. I try to pop in when i can. I'm just so busy during the week, that when it comes to the weekend, I just want to spend the time with my family. Maybe when my son gets a bit bigger, we can enjoy the hobby together. For now he loves looking at my collection, and pointing at his favorite cars.

Hi yochyoch, thanks for the comment. I do have the chrome calsonic. I was lucky enough to find two of them in mint condition. here are the pictures, i apologize, i'm terrible at taking photos of these. the lighting is so difficult to get right. if there is a specific angleyou want, let me know. One of them, is still sealed, so i did not take out of the package. Glad I can share my collection with you. enjoy! :D

I agree with kyoshosan, theres no such thing as too big of a collection! haha. my wife would disagree though....

the taxi that just came and went on ebay, i did not bid on. I set my alarm to get up early that morning to bid. when i logged on, i saw the price was already beyond what i was willing to pay, so i went back to sleep. (the readyset ended up selling for $260) haha. i am disappointed i still do not have a taxi to go with the police car. one day...

thanks for following everyone!

But I definitely won't pay as much as you have paid for it. Nice catch!

Wow; what a crazy collection.
I thought I had the bug pretty badly but this just made me lose bowel control.:eek:

Is there a theme to the collection or is the object simply to accumulate every body possible?

Thanks for the comments guys!

Arch: if who ever has that gold one is looking to sell it, let me know ;) i'd like to have the pair. I'm not sure if the dnano chrome ones were actually made by kyosho, or if they were just custom. I saw your pic of them though, and they do look cool.

Pierro: i go a little crazy for hard to find autoscales. I never see these rare ones on ebay, so when i did, i jumped on it. I agree most people probably wouldnt pay what i did. but most people probably wouldnt collect to the extreme i have either. It all depends on what people want i guess. I remember you were selling the focus for 120 euros and i thought that was too much too considering they are around. this was a chrome ferrari brand new readyset, numbered and limited to 1000. it was worth it to me to have in my collection :D

Worldclass: The addiction hits pretty hard! they are just so cool to have and look at! post some pictures of your collection. i'm always interested to see what bodies other people like and add to their collection. there really is no theme to my collection. i am just collecting every car that i like. there are ones that i will not be getting, ie the pt cruiser, beetles, alfa romeos, etc... and i'm just sticking to racers for now, no overlands, f1, nascar etc...good luck with your collection!

Hey arch, thanks! I've been watching this auction.

I ordered a brand new readyset directly from Danbury right before this item was listed. It's a cool corvette, and will be a nice addition. Should be arriving this week hopefully?

The one listed on eBay Ended up selling for 167$. Used with scratches. Brand new from danbury was about the same price.

Will post pics when I get mine.

Well my collection pales next to yours and doesn't really contain anything rare.
There isn't much of a theme either. I just pick up whatever grabs my fancy. I would like to complete my collection of Ford GTs and Porsche 934s (I just scored a yellow GT and the new orange 934 but haven't received them yet). I also like the Mini coopers and Lambo Countach. I was hoping to collect the old Stratos bodies but recent prices suggest otherwise.
I'm still waiting for the mailman to deliver the new orange Porsche 934, the Celica Castrol, Yellow Ford GT - would love a red one - GT-R BP, plain red Evo, a pair of Subaru imprezzas, a red Diablo and a polka dotted Shakoten soarer.

I'm looking for a red Porsche 934, a Jaegermeister 934, a red Ford GT, chevrolet Taxi, a red Countach, checker or Union Jack Mini Coopers, Chevy Patrol Car, Mad Max interceptor, NSX Mugen 2002, a yellow and black 350Z and that same GT-R #6 you are ... so far ;)

2012.03.01, 09:32 AM
Hi Guys! hows it going? sorry I havent been on here much. Usually a quick look to see whats new.

There hasnt been too many new additions to the collection. I'll still buy older ones I need to complete sets. but havent come across many. seems pretty slow for older collectible autoscales.

The only new addition I have had recently is a beautiful baby girl :D she has been occupying all my time lately...and money....

Cowboysir: The cobra is just for fun, maybe the odd lap day? to be honest I'm a bit scared of the car. I only learned how to drive manual 1 week before I picked it up. I rented a beater to learn, then only had the opportunity to drive it a few times before storing it for the winter. You must see a few of these cobras around BC. theres a large community of owners out west. the weather is nicer and get to enjoy them more months out of the year.

Anyway, i'll have more updates in the spring when i can get the car out of storage.

in the mean time, i'll post to the thread about daily driver cars....we have some special ones in the family, not mine personally.... :D

cowboysir
2012.03.01, 10:32 AM
make sure the wife doesn't pull the "the baby or the car" ultimatum on you.

I've driven an original and I'd have to say youre smart to be cautious...the one I drove on a trackday had some amazing oversteer qualities if you were on it but could spin if your attention wandered in the slightest.

Congrats on the baby girl.;)

Hi Everyone! hope you're all doing well. I've decided to start thinning out my collection. I will start by selling the common cars, then selling off some doubles and triples that I have :D

Looking back at the start of this thread in 2010 when I started, it has been a fun time!! Unfortunately, I bought all these cars, and all they do is sit in boxes kept in a spare room of my house. would be nice to re-claim that space.

I think I will be selling them on the *******a and *******om site. I hope there is interest in them. would be nice to sell the whole collection to one user....but I think that is unlikely. don't think anyone was as autoscale crazy as me at the time!

anyway, just thought I'd give you all the heads up. have a great day!!
