Model Database

Here you can have a look at my whole collection. Since the late 1970s I have collected 1947 model cars, most of them in 1/43rd scale. All of them are pictured. Ignoring all the (justified) recommendations, I never specialized in a certain subject while collecting. But so my collection shows you a little bit of the huge variety in the world of model cars.

The model cars shown here are not for sale. But the link to the Google search engine attached to each entry of the database makes it easy to find further information about the model - and maybe you will find a place where you can buy it. A second link from each entry leads to eBay where you can see if somebody is putting the model up for auction (the links of the English version of this website lead to eBay USA, the links of the German version lead to eBay Switzerland).

Country indications usually refer to the current name of the country in which the production site for the model or for its prototype was (or is) located. Cars and models from the former USSR can thus be found under "Russia", "Ukraine", "Latvia" or another former Soviet republic, depending on the place of the manufacturer's production plant. The same rule is applied for cars and models from Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, whereas an exception is made for the German Democratic Republic (GDR, 1949-1990), in order to give as exact information on the production site as possible.
