Thank you Nigels!

Here's another comparison shot, the same Disney Car alongside an Oxford Miniatures 1/72 scale Mini Cooper.  They seem about the same scale, bearing in mind the slightly compressed format of the Disney car if this helps.  If you're thinking of using them on a Thomas OO gauge format layout I think they would be just about perfect Smile

Well would you believe it, for months I've not been able to get any 3 packs (or at least not at a reasonable price), then when checking around to see what I needed in response to Pablo's kind offer I found 3 different packs on Amazon.uk at a reasonable price.  I've got two here now and the third is due on Monday, here's the two I received;


@Pablo - I'll let you know which others I need once I get a chance to sort out what others are available that I don't have

Yeah, the bus is the one I really need from that pack, just like the gold Ramon from the other as neither are in blind bags currently Smile

I can see you making a great looking, 3D printed wall hanging display case for these. Maybe one with channels that would accept a piece of clear plexiglass slid into it to keep the dust off. Maybe a smaller version of this...

Sorry...I am picturing a whole wall of interlocking 3D Printed display cases for you to show off your collection. Like a jigsaw puzzle you could cover every wall in your hose .

The third 3 pack of cars arrived yesterday, these are below, two are existing models I have in a normal type.  However these are also glow in the dark so effectively 3 new ones for my collection Smile

I've managed to pick up 4 more of the 3 packs I was missing for my collection, 3 I actually got off Amazon.com (USA) and another off Amazon.co.uk still got a couple I need, which I may be asking Pablo to see if he can find them for me Smile

Thanks, but not as much as it seems, with some of these 3 packs I'm only actually gaining 1 additional unique model, but its the same old thing, releasing exclusive models in these multi-packs, the bane of any collectors life lol!

That is except for the metallics (blue and silver packs) as these are 3 unique models in each pack, similar t one of the glow in the dark sets I got the other week.  But at least its not as bad as the Thomas mini's where you get an exclusive with a 10 pack or something Smile

Latest two additions to my Cars 3 Mini's collection;

The first is actually one of the original series that I could never find in the UK, I managed to get it when on hols in Fuerta Ventura in a supermarket for less than it would be here lol!

[Image: IMG-20190920-180743.jpg]

The second is a new release (note: the new simplified, cheaper, tackier packaging Sad)
