1/43s anyone?

I loved the scale ever since I was a kid because you get all the details for a fraction of the price and space of the bigger models (well, sometimes). Now that dnanos are finally affordable, my passion for these got a new spark.

We had Modifiers line a few years ago that I thought was ingenious for the scale.

On a side note, here's my latest and greatest addition to my white car set:

I'll bump w/ some Modifiers pix in case you guys don't know what they were (basicly 1/43 xmods save RC part):


Full show (http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/q...s/98Civic2.jpg) #2-21.

For the scale, the level of detail and parts was superb. At 10$ a pop, they EASILY beat the fancy $50 die casts IMO.

I have several eclipse modifiers. I loved them initially, they were pretty nice to tinker with but since you cant drive them they lost their charm quickly for me and ended up in a drawer.

Get your post count up and then list em in BST. 2 months ago I would've loved to buy 1 epoch, but now Dnanos are affordable and they're defenetly superior.

I bought this for a fraction of the price ($25 vs >$60), because the rear window+wiper were detached althrough it was new. Justed fixed it with superglue.
My first intend was to adapt this body to a dNaNo chassis because it was specified the body is resin and not metal (die cast) Unfortunately it turns out that the resin is very thick and rigid, it weights the same as a die cast. So it will remain one of the rare standing models in my collection.

Reason I will NOT be getting a nano now is because there are hardly any light plastic bodies of street cars available at an affordable price. I'd say gear towards 1/32 HPI RC because its ideal for this kind of thing.

Here's most of my collection:





Not pictured is my lime Konig CRX, black MR2, and extras of the silver Tanabe MR2. Also, the bigger Datsun is G1 Smokescreen that I figured is close enough size-wise

I also have Smokescreen! But mine is a Japanese re-issue from their recent collection series. He was my favorite character among Jazz, and Red Alert, got those two guy's as re-issues as well.
That is a good question, what scale were these older G1 Transformers?

Fovea, that is a great looking 930. Who is the maker? I need one of those for my collection. I've been looking for a Minichamps for awhile, but every time one pops up, someone is just asking stupid money for it...

My collection is getting pretty large by now. Will try to post some pics soon...

Hi Ianc,

The maker is NEO. As seen here at this shop (I guess I can post the link as they only sell static models) The 930 is below on the page. Other models from NEO are interesting, too bad the bodies can't be used for 1/43 RC.
Can't wait to see your collection.
